2008 Lexus IS F 4dr Sedan (5.0L 8cyl 8A)


I was going to settle for a 335 coupe and out of desperation for a more exciting ride I test drove the M3, but I, too, was very disappointed with it. I actually preferred the 335. Not sure I wanted to spend 50k on a car I didn't love I consulted a friend who suggested the new Lexus. My wife had been trying to get me to look at Lexuses, but they're not exactly renowned drivers' cars. Anyway I drove the IS350 (which I liked a lot) then the IS-F. I bought the IS-F on the spot. What a great car! The torque, the engine sound, even the automatic transmission was great (in manual mode it can shift really fast). The Mark Levinson stereo is light years beyond anything I've ever heard from Bose.

Best Features

Mark Levinson stereo, Sport mode, 27 mpg on interstate, torque

Worst Features

Ventilated seats, coupe version, HD radio, multi-disc shuffle, HDCD decoding, manual transmission option, more accurate navigation software, real quad exhaust, white paint option.
