LEXUS IS USER REVIEWS
I'm having mine for 1.5 yr and 35000km on the clock. Previously owned an 2006 STI and ISF beats it in every ways. Including the grip consider ISF has only rear wheel drive. One incident I had with oil patch on a corner in a rainy day. My rear slided a bit and the traction light come on. I continued driving but a look at the mirror, few cars behind me weren't that lucky and were all piled up together.
Cost wise isn't too bad considered this is a high powered car. Free services for three years is excellent but offset by extra cost for replacing Brake discs and pads cost over $2k in my first year and lately new tyres for another $2.4k. One advice for other owners, don't brother consider getting the OEM tyres, get the Michelin pilot super sport and you will discover more potential from your beloved ISF.
After driving the BMW M3 the RS5 and the C63, the Lexus was the one that I was saddest handing the keys back.
I had all of them for two days each to get to know them well and took them all through a particular corner in my area at speed. The ISF felt the best and smoothest for that test. The daily ride was the most comfortable as were the seats. The sound it made when it went past 3800 revs never failed to put a smile on my face. After driving a 335i for the past four years I can tell you the Lexus wins in every way. If people could get over the badge issue the M3 would have to be sub $100k to get any sales over the Lexus. I picked mine up last Friday and still can't stop smiling every time I hit the start/stop button and see that steering wheel slide into place and here that beautiful V8 idle gently but ready to play hard if you want it to.
