Yeah, Porsche options are fun. Yeah I think there was definitely some turbo lag in the Turbo model as well, but boy when it comes on, it's strong. :D


I have a 2016 Lexus IS 300 AWD. Prior to...

Cool My weekend with the Porsche Macan Turbo

It's been a while since I last posted a Turo review (here's the last one (https://www.clublexus.com/forums/car-chat/871308-my-5-days-with-the-genesis-5-0-ultimate.html)), but it's time for another...

Post Porsche Macan Turbo from Lexus IS owner's view

Can a "crossover SUV" be more fun than a sport sedan? That's something I've been wondering about even since I first heard about cars like the Porsche Cayenne, the BMW X5 M, and now, a seemingly...

Congrats on the new truck. Tacos are great from my point of view in that they're still a usable size in the city, unlike full-size trucks. If I had the space for a truck and had some projects to do...

Yeah but even then, this is the most sport-oriented version of the 718, and Porsche have shown again and again that they put special engines (i.e., high-revving NA) in their top-tier cars even now....

Great update on the Stinger. It's good to know about those minor issues, but yeah I suspect it's worth it based on how fun and yet practical the car is. Still liking those wheels myself too, good...

For me, it worked after about 2 weeks of failure. Seems to be luck of the draw.

Maybe it has to do with the signal strength of cell towers in the area? You could always try again in an area where...

The volume difference is pretty easy to explain. Your phone has its own volume setting, which you would have to increase in order to match the relative volume of the car's radio.

Can you tell us...

The LS is pretty "super". :)

I do like that website though. Since they combine info from lots of other websites, I tend to feel they would be more consistent than if one were to just exclusively...

You can turn off the Eco light. I did it day one of my ownership of the car. You can turn it off in the Settings, under "Eco Driving Indicator Light". ABGLexus

Understandable. My first thought if someone said "Super Luxury Cars" would be something like a Maybach or Bentley, not a plebian S 550. :D

Oh. Welp, I should have noticed you got the performance! I've never driven one of those. If it's like the Dual Motor, but faster, it's gotta be a beast. I found the Dual Motor to be massively faster...

Congrats! I have driven two different 3's - a long-range RWD and a Dual Motor AWD. Both were a lot of fun to drive, but I couldn't get used to the regen braking. :D Lots of whiplash.

What car is in that picture? I've never seen such a button in the IS.

I just looked through the 2016 owner's manual and found no references to turning off the rear air outlets.

This sounds like carbon buildup, perhaps? What kind of gas do you put in the car? It would be good to get an OBD scanner and see what codes, if any, remain. I'm not a 250 owner so maybe someone who...

The 3IS seems like it is really sensitive to alignment issues. Since I have been on my BFGoodrichs, I've been running proper alignment, and there's been no sign of inner tire wear. But on the...

Do you hear the noise only while braking? If so, yeah it's probably time to look at the pads. How long they last is all up to your driving conditions, however. My pads were just fine (5 mm in the...

That might be true, but I think it also depends on your use of the armrest. My 2016 with almost 30,000 miles on it has no armrest issues. Of course, I don't really keep stuff in the center console,...

For whatever it's worth, if any interior elements of a car had significant damage, I would not buy that car, and neither would most people I know. That's probably why they are having to fix it - they...

Have you checked the oil on your Lexus IS? I've never seen my oil in such condition in almost 30,000 miles.

Also, you might want to verify the type of oil that is being used. If you aren't getting...
