I'm writing this review after 2 months of having it. I was debating between the M3 and this, but after reviewing reliability histories and the true price difference AFTER options, I decided on taking a gamble on Lexus's new fastest car. This car is almost the perfect balance between a race car and daily driver, it is almost perfect for being noticeable, but yet not so noticeable, and quite frankly can be either boring or crazy fun, depending on your mood. To sum it up, I have very little regret over this purchase and unless it's a Bentley, Lambo, or Ferrari next to me on the road, I never feel "shown up."
Engine and the sound when the 2nd intake opens up, standard features and almost everything in the optional navigation system, and the almost too aggressive exterior styling.
Bigger car (or just make it a coupe), manual transmission, side-by-side instead of stacked rear exhaust=diffusers and a more aggressive "sport" mode (like open that second intake and produce more low-end power on demand).
