Agreed, 100%. OP, a new intake without a corresponding tune will net you nothing but intake noise. If you want to go fast in an IS 350, you'll need divine intervention. There are no practical ways...

The F Sport suspension tuning will not beat you up, and the seats are great. I have no issues with the NuLuxe material in place of leather either. I'm 65 and I can drive this car for hours without...

OP, I live 90 miles from the nearest Audi, BMW, and Lexus dealerships. I have a demanding job, so killing half a day to drive to and from Las Vegas for service isn't an easy thing for me to do. So, I...

I went from 235-50-18 Pirelli P Zero Nero tires on my Mustang to 255-40-19 Michelin Pilot Super Sports (square setup). Ride quality improved and handling improved exponentially. The tire you choose...

I don't think 255 will fit up front. I wanted to run 255-35-18 on 18.5" wheels up front to go square and was told it wouldn't work. There was a forum member who fit 245-40-18 on all corners...

Disagree. I've got Pilot Super Sports on my Mustang GT and they're superb in the role of a non-tracked, daily driver. Tremendous grip, the ride is good, and they're great in the rain. They also wear...

If memory serves, TRD has sway bars for our cars, offered through nigel-jdm, at close to $1K. While I believe the 3IS could benefit from adjustable sway bars, the $1K price point is absolutely...

TRD charges a ridiculous $1K for swaybars for our cars. Can you imagine how much they'd charge for a supercharger for the 3IS?

My vote would go to a flash tune (did wonders for my Mustang GT), but...

I financed my 350 F and already have had second thoughts. Why? Because the '15 3IS has features I would have loved on my car, such as a memory driver's seat, enhanced enform, etc. Had I the...

Same here. My wife and I both use the car, and it takes me forever to readjust the seat after she's driven the car. This is one serious omission on a car this expensive. Despite that, I still...

OP, have you got a TSIB number for the new update? Unless I spoon-feed this information to my dealer, they'll ignore me.
