Brembo makes Lexus, Raybestos and AIMCO rotors for the IS-F. Brembo lists them on their engineering drawing. They might have different finishes on them, but the rotors are manufactured by Brembo.

Keep believing that. It's a lie.



Why? The engine was broken in at the factory. There is little time will change, unless they did a bad job, then it will burn oil excessively like my '92 GTS...

It's normal when the gearbox is cold. Mine always does this for the first quarter mile from my house unless I am very soft with the throttle.
