    Don't care about BMW because they have different levels with different power choices. A 328 has 240hp. The 335 has 300hp. The M3 has 400+hp. The 328 with 240hp kills the IS250. It's just silly the IS250 F-Sport is soooo slow. It looks so cool. It looks fast. Guys who buy it are so embarrassed at its meager power they often de-badge it.....which doesn't make sense because we know if its de-badged it must be a IS250. Just a little computer programming of the engine management system will do the trick.

    I do believe the IS 250 V-6 with 204 or so hp will be replaced with the 240hp or so turbo I-4 in the new NX next year. Lexus also hinted that the engine could be tuned for more power in different applications.

    Regg always good seeing you posting!

    Yeah, we heard from an engineer the turbo from the NX could be the next engine. The same engineer said they could easily reprogram the engine management of the current engine to increase power. I prefer natural power. Turbo's make too much heat.

    What's doin Mike? I need a set of wheels for an RC. Text me Javid's number. Doesn't he work for you guys now? 954 557-7965.

    The added performance comes at a cost though. GS F is starting at $84,440 (~$88K with most of the options selected). M5 starts at $94,100. E63 S starts at $101,700. All things considered it would be a tough sell for me to choose the BMW or Merc over the Lexus.

    I'm not gonna say its the most beautiful car out there but we sell a lot of GS350's. Even with the lack of power many complain about. Surely, many people like its looks. I'll bet we get a lot more German car trade-ins than they get from Lexus trade-ins.

    I believe we will sell a fair amount of these cars. People contact us everyday waiting for this car to hit the dealership.

    You're entitled to your opinions, thanks for putting it out there.....but the GS-F will do well. Despite its looks.

    Pretty certain the car will sell quite well. From reviews the car handles really good, even no being as fast as the German rivals.
