I'm down to meet. I have a 2015 IS350 AWD F-Sport. It's a Canadian spec car that I imported when I moved here from Toronto.

The rear fender is actually one piece all the way to the A pillar along with the roof and the other side. If it's a good shop, they will most likely want to respray clear coat over the whole panel,...

The RWD and AWD driver side mats are different sizes because the AWD version has a hump near the center console.

That dent looks like it has a decent crease, so pulling it may not have the best result. My guess is that most (if not all) PDR guys are gonna want to remove it from the backside. I just hope that it...

This should work. Just make sure not to cut too much because you want to preserve the factory orange peel so it looks uniform with the rest of the car. If you're not comfortable doing this, look for...

I agree. The Germans are advertising around 320+ HP, but in real life and on dynos, it's looking more like that's at the wheel. Lexus really needs to step up its engine game. I'm hoping that they...

The GS350 has the same engine as the IS350 and has had that +5 HP increase for a couple years now. If they are replacing the 300 with the 200t, then it's probably because they finally hooked it up to...

I haven't driven the new A5, but I have driven the new S4. It's better performance-wise than my IS350 AWD, and I think the interior is built better too. When I was looking at it though, it was...

It may not be that he's sold on the Camry, but that he's trying to make a point about Lexus being extremely slow to update their tech. I think it's kind of sad that Lexus is still using a 12 year old...

I imported my Canadian IS350 F-Sport to the US. Like everyone else has said, you can change everything except the temperature unit.

It's unlikely that a single car would have a clear coat failure from the factory (especially a Lexus). I think it's more likely that the car was damaged and repaired during the delivery process and...

The stock LED lights have 2 projector bulbs while the stock HID lights have 1. If both sides look the same then it's probably the right type.

For your situation, I can only think of two...

To fully fix that 100%, it's going to cost a lot. You'd most likely have to repair the panel and bumper, paint and blend them, and then clear coat both panels fully. The reason it's so expensive is...

They make you pay for map updates. I can guarantee they're not going to add an update so that older cars get App Suite lol.

I second NAPA. I haven't had them scan my paint before, but the touch up they made for me was a perfect match for my old Explorer and was fairly cheap (I think it was under $10 IIRC).

Take it to the dealer. That shouldn't happen, and the tear will only get worse. The armrest in my old Explorer started tearing like that and now it's opened up to full on gashes.

The M240i doesn't even have much tech, but it's still better than my loaded F-Sport :( I don't understand why we can't have simple things like parking sensors with F-Sport.

Yeah that's happened to me once before like 2 years ago. Put it into reverse and then drive at a stop light and it never happened again.

We'll see how the new IS turns out. My next car will most likely be something like an M240i though. I'm tired of feeling like my car has decade old technology (because it does lol).
