- Handeling. Nice acelleration. Engine sound. Brakes. Paint.
- Stereo features. Satelite/IPOD interface NOT included.
Ok, I up-graded from an 08 G37 coupe to the new ISF. The G37 was an excellent car with the best interior "gadgets" I've ever used. So far, no regrets. To my surprise, the ISF clearly out handels the G. The acelleration is better than the 330 G, but NOT back breakingly better. The engine sound is terrific and you will love it. The seats are excellent and provide terrific support. Over-all I am very pleased. If you are considering buying this car - you won't regret it!...read morehide

- Acceleration, Sport Sound, Super nice stunning Ultrasonic Blue exterior
- You feel the road including the bumps. Would have been perfect with additional 2-3 inches r legroom
Wanting to buy the M3, but bought the stunning Ultrasonic Blue exterior and 2 tone black/white interior ISF. This car is superfast and super comfortable. The gurgling sound on acceleration is fantastic. If performance, better technology ( Navi, backup camera, Blue tooth) plus reliability, value and excellent customer service are your priorities, then this is the car for you....read morehide

- Great features, nice look, amazing vehicle!
- Haven't come across one yet.
I only have 580 miles on it, but this car is absolutely fantastic. I test drove an M3 and had a deposit on a C63 AMG, but this car won out. It is a great daily driver with plenty of speed and appeal. It's great to have a car that you won't run into everyday! Lexus quality and reliability with the speed and track presence of an M3 or a C63. You won't go wrong with this car....read morehide

- One of the best FR sedan
- bad milage
I have owned BMW M3(6MT, 2003), Infiniti G35 Coupe(6MT, 2005), and I purchased IS-F 2 months ago. I hated to drive AT, but IS-F totally changed my mind, it may be the world best transmission, so quick, and so precise. Comparing handlings, M3 and G35 are very nice, I do not have any complaint for those two cars, but IS-F is better. One thing I complain about IS-F handling is that it has no L.S.D. I think if it had L.S.D., more traction it gets. Toyota should put L.S.D. by the time I get next IS-F! I always drive it at manual mode, because in a city, everybody turns around hearing IS-F engine sound.
Price-quality-ratio is so high!...read morehide

- The most dependable upscale high preformance car on the market! The 8 peed auto is beyound belief !
Every facet of this Lexus has been and redesigned and reseached prior to production. It is a preformance auto that can produce numbers like 4.2 --0 to 60 times and 12.7 in the quarter at 112mph. These number are even better than the 2008 Shelby Mustang, go figure. Lexus go gettum!

- Speed, handling, lexus service, technology
- suspension is TOO stiff
Great car. Super fast. Amazing acceleration at any speed (up to 120mph anyway - haven't had a chance to test beyond that). 8-speed auto with paddle shifters is great - really nice tech lets you use the paddle shifters to drive it like a stick even the car still in auto; want a little more pep, hit the downshift paddle and it'll pop into the right gear - may even be 5th from 8th or whatever. Handling, cornering are superb. This is not your father's lexus! Only complaint is that the ride is VERY stiff and you really feel all the bumps - a bit much even for a sports car. Backseat is better than you expect - actually usuable for real people for short trips....read morehide

- The whole package!!!
I have the IS-F Special edition 18 of 50 and it is truly a special machine. The preformance is super and the handling is great. The interior and exterior is fantastic. It really was worth the extra cost. I have owned BMWs in the past and they are super cars but this is most fun driving I have experienced. Recommend the car highly....read morehide
