    I got to drive a 2021.... really really curious to see the differences if any I feel.

    The Lexus LC F Megathread

    Indeed. Michelin had those tires in 21" for the LC and not 22" so I went with Pirelli P Zero Nero. Well Michelin finally added some 22" sizes so I'm going to change to them. The front is 10mm wider (265/35/22 vs curren 255/30/22) so might need to change offset on the next set of wheels. But...

    Lexus ES The 2019 ES Sucks

    We owned a GS F-Sport so I know the cars well.

    2021 Lexus IS Megathread ("IS 500" Trademarked in USA)

    1. I would pay money to drive on that track. 2. The new IS looks amazing. I can't stop saying that.

    Will Genesis hurt Lexus?

    Yeah I don't think a lot of people understand the USA isn't growing and its tapped out. The growth is in China and they will dominate new product and what comes out. FYI, Lexus had a huge month in China last month.

    2021 Lexus IS Megathread ("IS 500" Trademarked in USA)

    I’ll also say this. Lexus just sell F-Sport hybrids. Look if the IS 300h F sport came and it got 40 MPG well that’s something the competition doesn’t offer. I would love that. The RX And Ux get hybrid f sport but not the NX, ES, LS or now IS. Why? If you are going to be underpowered then...

    2021 Lexus IS Megathread ("IS 500" Trademarked in USA)

    Correct LEVI, it does sound like the front is RC/GS based which means the V-8 could possibly hit and a IS F/IS 500 might just be on the table. :)

    2021 Acura TLX Type S Will Pack a Powerful 3.0L Turbo V-6

    Yeah I'm sure its related to honda's. There is no way Acura the king of cutting corners is suddenly dropping money on its own platforms when every company is sharing more and more. If they really had an all new platform, why would they not go with RWD instead OF LOOKING like its RWD. Fake. But...

    Will Genesis hurt Lexus?

    It’s an issue cause I see it brought up all the time how it’s a copy. And let’s remind ourselves the cars are mashes of other cars. You don’t want your badge to immediately remind you of another brand unless you are content with being a copy.

    Will Genesis hurt Lexus?

    A couple things about Genesis... 1. They have hired some of the best talent from other companies. From Ferrari to Audi to Lexus. 2. Hyundai is going to invest billions in the brand. Thing will change before you know it. Their issues now are no stand alone dealers, no SUVs and meh marketing...

    2020 Lexus RC F Track Edition & Updated 2020 RC F Coupe [MERGED]

    Is that reviewer insane? The RC F has been out since 2015. His title has been answered 1000 times already.... sigh...youtubers....

    2021 Lexus IS Megathread ("IS 500" Trademarked in USA)

    I don't think anyone here is being any worse than the majority of the commentary. Take 5 minutes to go over the Lexus channels, then go to Motor Trend etc. Even my personal FB page has people in utter disbelief the interior is basically unchanged and the engines are again the same. The styling...

    2021 Lexus IS Megathread ("IS 500" Trademarked in USA)

    It is a bit perplexing but seems the SUV and hybrid route with the new ES is what they figure they need. Its crazy to think IS stands for "International Sedan" and debuted in Europe in 1997 with its on I-6 (we got a bigger 2JZ in the USA in 2001). I don't quite understand it since Europe still...

    2021 Lexus IS Megathread ("IS 500" Trademarked in USA)

    I woke up this morning and between messages I'm getting and reading on social, it is a commentary bloodbath. And all I can say is "it looks great though". Forget the TLX, the current Infiniti Q50 offers a 400hp Red Sport. Kia/Hyundai offer much more power and performance. Caddy too. Wow......

    The new interface is a touchscreen and its moved 3 inches forward. Maybe that had something to do with it. Not sure.

    2021 Lexus IS Megathread ("IS 500" Trademarked in USA)

    The pro for me is it looks gorgeous. It looks more expensive to me. It doesn't look entry level at all. My heart aches thinking if this was 20% larger as a GS. Would have been splendid. Alas is there anything to say? Just take 2 minutes to read comments by people on any social media outlet...

    12th Generation E120 Toyota Corolla Thread (Hatch, Sedan, Cross)

    The cars are hits with enthusiasts. The hatch in particular is modified a ton. The sedan owners have been waiting for RS-R suspension and it sold out as soon as it arrived. Very good news for Toyota to have enthusiasts buying and modifying.
