2014 IS350 AWD F-Sport.

The 2.5L V6 is very underpowered. We can sugar coat it all we want, but in the end, other brands are offering less expensive cars with similar features with more performance... for less money.

Yes I am serious. I have a '14 IS350 AWD F-Sport and I significantly prefer the regular bumper. If the standard grill/bumper is a bolt-on replacement, I'd like to do that. :)
