1) They absolutely will not require a complete rework of the IS to fit the 2.0T. Engine mounting brackets on the 2.0T will be modified from the front drive version in the NX to fit the rear drive...

There is a fundamental difference in a FWD chassis and a RWD chassis. Modern FWD chassis have the engine sitting sideways.* That means the crank shaft is parallel to the axles for the front wheels....

Why so little bamboo on the NX200h? I love it in the GS450h. Gorgeous.

It was way more prominent on the pre refresh 3RX. My MIL has one and I don't even notice the beak anymore.

134hp to push around 2800lbs versus 200hp to push around 3800lbs. That is a 10% hp to weight ratio advantage to the NX. I'm saying that the NX will not be 9.9 sec to 60. It will be in the 8 to mid 8...

You forgot about the Venza (and judging by the sales numbers, so did everyone else).

I think the RX stays the same size, more or less. The styling of the RX is pretty iconic and I don't see...

Holy ****, guys, settle down. Those are 0-62 numbers quoted from a spanish outlet which means they are not comparable to numbers from an american mag/media outlet which means that you can't really...

You drove it wrong. I've been driving a stick since my first car, but the IS-F in the S+ mode is downright savage. For a turbo 4, I prefer a stick. I'm not sure a stick would have improved the...

Torque makes for a nice daily driver (and usually efficient if you make a lot of torque at the RPM where your vehicle is geared to cruise). Power makes for high performance, though.

Not necessarily the base engine. BMW offers the 320i (180hp 2.0T) and Caddilac offers an ATS 2.5L 4 cyl as the base engine. The 2.5L V6 could stick around as a base engine with the 2.0T being...

Note that it isn't the 2nd model year of the 3IS. Sept 2015 will be a '16 model; that would make the IS200t the 3rd model year.

Damn, now I have to decide IS350 F Sport, FR-S, or IS200T F Sport. Good problems. :)

Edit: Sept '15, not MY15. Guess it is IS350 or FR-S.

I did not like the 3IS at the release photos. Then I kept looking. It is hands down the best looking sedan for under $50k. No doubt about it. It has a presence that just cannot be captured in...

Ok, haha. I thought I was taking crazy pills. I agree. IS-Fs can be had reasonably cheap now.

They are traditional torque converters... the IS350 8AT just has very aggressive lockup on the T/C. I don't know if the 350 AWD and 250 models have the same aggressive T/C lockup.

Do you mean the F emblem on the fender? That is factory. As long as it doesn't say "IS-F" on the trunk lid, he's kosher.

I personally thought the CLA felt cheap and strange. It did not feel like a luxury vehicle. I don't know if it was a base model or what, but the headlights and shifter were really off putting.

Nice! If the 2.0T makes it in the IS for '15, it might win out over the FR-S. If a stick returns, it definitely will. I've never owned a sports car, so the FR-S is the leader at the moment.

Based on fuelly, the BMW does about 9% better on fuel efficiency than the IS350. You'd get 20-21 mpg on the 335i. Those turbo motors return better fuel efficiency on the EPA test than they do in the...
