I think Lexus wants this and the RC-F to be a low volume. The M3 used to be a "special" car in that it was homologated to participate in a race. It's now gone main stream in that they sell a ton of...

If so, has anybody done any intake cleaning due to carbon build up? We also have a 2008 335...

The reason why I mention a 19" wheel option that's more aggressive is because IMO, the 18" wheels don't fit quite right. They seem way to small for the car and the rear wheels seem like they're way...

Maybe when Lexus does a refresh, I'd like to see a couple of changes.

The first one being to the engines. Although they are proven, they're behind the times. Plain and simply, Lexus needs to go...
