    I don't get the decisions car companies make when it comes to adding features to cars. My 08 GS has heated seats, you'd think 6 years later the 14 IS would have that as a standard option.

    I was driving an IS loaner from a dealership for almost 2 weeks, it kinda annoyed me that the car didn't have navigation. It was a 2018 too. I didn't need it, just felt it should've been standard.

    So for the record I have the 17 IS 300 AWD F Sport

    I get like 21 mpg mixed driving. I dont try for good gas mileage and I probably have a heavy foot.

    Look into the IS 300 if you were looking for an AWD 350. Same engine just detuned, only thing youre missing is the adaptable suspension, which is nice, but I was fine without it. Then you just get a tune and youre making 350 power

    And if you do this ^ you might as well take over the lease on my white/red....lol

    I thought the 300 had the i4 and the 350 had the v6?

    They recently just renamed the 250 (4) to 300. But the 300 AWD shares 350 engine (6)

    The infotainment system and lack of apple play is the one thing I hate about my car. New RX looking good

    Lexus carrying on with this type of front end is reminding me of when Honda/Acura styling started going south.

    Lexus sales passed 700,000 worldwide last year. More people love the styling than hate it.

    Honda and Acura have been terribly ugly for ages now. Honda sales are fine, Acura basically sells two SUVs.

    Its probably one of those things you think you dont ever need, but appreciate when you do have it (like brake hold on cars).

    But it really is hard for me to see the real need for heated steering wheels. :lol: My wheel has NEVER been cold enough for me ever think I need it to be heated.

    Heated steering wheel is def one of my favorite features. Had never had it before, but now look for it when car shopping

    Wouldnt break me on a car, but is a real plus

    Cooled seats yeah, how quick does it work? Few minutes after sitting on leather you kinda adjust to it anyways.
