While the official announcement won’t take place until tomorrow at SEMA, my.IS has some details on the upcoming performance accessory line for the Lexus IS. Available options include:
- 19″ Forged Alloy Wheel/Tire Package
- Performance Brake Upgrade – Front & Rear
- Carbon Fiber Engine Cover
- Performance Intake
- Lowering Spring Set
- Peformance Shock Absorber Set
- Performance Exhaust (A deeper-toned alternative to the currently-available HKS exhaust)
- Sway Bar Kit
- Lower Rear Chassis Brace
The currently-available-as-an-official-Lexus accessory Ground Effects Kit and Rear Spoiler will be considered a part of this “F” line.
With most (if not all) of these accessories no doubt coming from the IS-F development, it’s an interesting strategy employed by Lexus.
There’s a general feeling, taken from the numerous reviews, that the IS-F is destined to be a black sheep in the Lexus lineup, the ride too harsh, too much emphasis on performance. But if this performance line does adopt the “F” moniker, it all makes a lot more sense. “The IS-F ride too harsh for you? Too fast? Well, just take your IS 250 and mod it to your heart’s delight.”
