2009 Lexus IS-F , Anyone getting one? - September 28, 2008, 10:39 PM

Anyone considering getting one of these for those rainy/snowy days when you can't ride your bike? I never really liked the IS series, but my opinion has completely changed.

416 hp
371 lb-ft of torque
5.0-Litre V8





And it's a Toyota. You know it'll last for a long long time!! lol

I recently sold my 06 IS250AWD - Great car! It's no comparison to a BMW - not in any flavor!

I have an 02 IS300. At the time I was looking at the IS300 and the 330. I went with the IS simply because it's a Toyota. If my brother didn't own a four door G35 with a 6spd manual I would have gotten that over anything else in the class. I just didn't want to own the same car my older brother has. If I were looking at the high end performance segment of this class my money would have to go to M3. I would just be sure that there is a solid warranty on the M3. I would imagine the rear diff is really expensive and some manufactures consider that to be a common wear item.

Nope. Its a nice car, but there are others (the m3, amg something, and the new cts-v) that are better. Really, wait for the CTS-v, 500-600hp, leather, and good old American reliability? sounds like a winner to me!

For$ 62K (but people are getting it close to $55K+ tax, title), it's at least $10K cheaper than an equivalently equipped M3 or AMG. Plus it has Toyata durability, in which non of the German cars can touch.

I'll be owning one next year... though I might go for the 09 CTS-V. It's a beast, but it's an american car....still deciding.

Americans aren't really known to have realiable cars. Sorry to bring you the bad news.

Does the exhaust still stop before the cut outs in the bumper?

oh really? what well built (in not the cavileer) american car has had serious problems in the last few years? I dont see them eating power window motors, or wearing out "non wear items" like their german counter parts. I'll never own another german car... I love them, but honestly they are huge headaches after their warranties expire.

ISF is a great bang for the buck. The G37S which has been compared to it is really not a comparison since they are in a different hemisphere. The M3 will cost you around 70K when simply equipped. CTS-V should really be the only one that would give it a run for its money considering it handles and performes better than an M5 and costs about the same...
