What do 2IS owners think of the 3IS?

For me i still cannot fathom the 3IS, and I probably never will.

While I like the overall interior ambiance of the RC, I too agree with you that Lexus has really downgraded their door panel quality.

Why couldn't Lexus just keep the same door setup as the 2IS?

All Toyota engines are excellent in terms of smoothness & refinement, particularly the current GR family of V6. And that 2.5L 4GR-FSE takes the cake in super silky smooth refined harmonics.

Excellent write-up!

Regarding the small V6, everyone seems to bash the 2.5L 4GR-FSE of the IS250. But as a base model I don't see the issue, acceleration is adequate and actually on the lean side...

Look at reviews of the Camry. Despite the flagship V6 (2GR-FE) being about 10yrs old now it still receives praise for its performance, refinement & efficiency.

A small 2000cc Turbo I6 would be perfect

I don't care how much power the 4-pots are making as they're still inferior in terms of smoothness, power delivery and refinement.

So the other day i had the opportunity to compare a GS460 side by side to a 2013 GS350 (4GS) and what really struck me was the level of apparent cost cutting that the 4GS was subject to.

The 3GS...
