Thanks! Forum user is male (which is me) while the primary driver is female (which is my girlfriend ) My primary ride is a '10 WRX while she drives the RX. She used to drive a old beater mini-van so we figured we should upgrade to something nice and future-proof our family that we don't have yet. From the little time spent behind the wheel of the RX, it's definitely making me watch to switch to something like an IS/IS-F lol

I am a male and I guess I'm the primary driver but its my wife's car...if that makes sense. Anywhere we go, I'm always the one driving it. I bought a pearl white F sport with BSM and Park Assist. We have a 2010 IS 350C and its been a great car. I plan on doing some small mods to mine as Corrado did to his. I'll post some pictures when I'm done. So far it has a full clear bra on it as well as a tint. I've been thinking about doing something to the back end of the car but I don't know what yet. I think the rear end needs to be updated to more closely match the aggressive look of the front end. I may try to smoke it out or maybe red it out...nothing permanent or drastic though.

I'd love to see the front bumper blacked out on the pearl white. I think it will result in the boldest F Sport front end.

I'm also thinking of the rear beyond the F Sport badge but I don't want to over do it risk the tacky look.

1) 3.5L
2) Claret Mica Red
3) No major features or options as there were none available. Have purchased winter tires/rims and weathertech floorliners
4) No mods
5) M and in 40s

Have typically been a BMW driver and purchased this as i wanted an AWD vehicle with enough room for skis and hockey bags. We have other Rx drivers in the family however i always felt the suspension was a bit too soft for my liking. This F- Sport package is just a bit firmer than a regular RX and i really liked the colour.

Drtdvl, congratulations on the F-Sport. I think this model has and will continue to lure in more BMW shoppers than ever. It's not an X5 or X3 in the overall driving dynamics department, but close and rewards in more important ways than a BMW doesn't, namely reliability and more luxurious refined quiet ride.

Thanks CorradoMR2 - I am also looking forward to experiencing the service and hopefully reliability of the Lexus product. This dealer in Edmonton is supposed to be one of the best Lexus dealers.

Another many Lexus to the family but definitely the first with F badge.

'13 Nebula Gray Pearl, Navi, Blind Spot Monitor, Intuitive Parking Assist. I think the only thing missing is HUD.
