    cool... my mom had one and I drove it and thought it was very smooth. Turn the ECT on and with near empty tank of gas that car runs.

    I've always felt the IS had a lot of positive potential in its direction. fact I was at the LA auto show earlier today and of course I visited the IS family. Unfortunately though.. I feel the sc430 was one of the worst cars Lexus ever created. Long list of things why, and I'm sure nobody is interested to hear them...regardless anyways. Ig you're interested in aftermarket exhaust systems for the is, I've seen several that have gained 20 whp on the dyno. just google it and they should pop right up

    It's not specified anywhere but I'm pretty sure the dude in the video is driving the F version. 416hp of goodness. A regular IS350 does 0-60 in about 6sec in the best scenario.

    I've seen an IS-F in person here in Boston (actually been several new M3's, C63 AMG's and IS-F's around) and it's a beautiful car. Lexus did a great job with the design on this one.

    Yeah the IS-F is brilliant.
    If I had the cash, it'd be a hard choice between the IS-F and a C63 AMG

    You are right. Plus the F has slightly different gauges.

    NoX, it's an IS350 in the video. I know this guy, and the driver console gauge shown in the video is IS350. The IS-F has a different instrument gauge design. The IS350 runs 4.9 sec 0-60 in the review sources as well. Check out the updated source on the web.


    Speaking of IS-F, they hover around mid 4 seconds + or -.

    Yeah it's pretty even to 60mph but from that on torque starts to speak and the IS-F is likely to pull ahead of the IS350.

    Actually, I'd like to hear your reasons. I too have a list of why the SC430 is a horrible car, so I'd like to see if we hate it for the same reasons

    Yes, to some extent. Actually I know very well about each car's powerband and gears. The IS350 is very well designed for quarter mile performance, not just 0-60. The 1st ~ 3rd gears are awfully strong due to close gear ratios. The 4th ain't bad, still plenty strong and has plenty of pull. The 5th and 6th gears are a little weak, which is meant for fuel economy. This is why the IS350 can almost hang with the IS-F till about 90 mph. The IS-F on the other hand, not only has two extra gears but also very well geared all the way to the top speed. It's not just extra HP and torque but also the gears shorter. In other words, the IS-F is a highway monster. Guys, not trying to put down on the IS-F as this topic is meant for IS350, not IS-F...

    The sc430 has many problems, I would say my biggest problem with is that it's branded a sports car, and it clearly isn't. It's performance is pitiful, the engine makes no power for its size and the car is too heavy. It was poorly designed and the stock wheels would of been more at home on a garbage can lid. It was an even bigger mistake making the back seat accessible to "children" if you can manage to make them fit. As a result, there front was cramped to say the least. When you bring a sports car to the market, it should have 3 important aspects. The car should look good, it should handle well, and go fast in a straight line. Lexus got all of those wrong and ruined this generation of the SC sports car. The engine got horrible millage, and anyone would be embarrassed they spent 60 grand on a car that more resembles a tank then a sports car. There is no question as to why Lexus has pulled the next generation SC from the line. The car is too expensive, it is hopelessly impractical and it is easily the dumbest sports car brought to the market in the lass 7 years. When I went to the LA auto show, I was as surprised to find this car, as I was the current gen hybrid honda civic. Both cars are as stale as car styling gets, and both are nauseating to look at.

    ^ Maybe it wasn't designed/ meant to be a Sports car. Just because it's SC (Sport Coupe) doesn't mean it has to be a Sports car. Don't be expecting BMW M3 or Audi S4 handling out of this car. it has different purpose - Luxury.

    Except they try and sell it/advertise it as a sports car. It a bit like trying to sell the PS3 as a desktop replacement. Sure it can run Ubuntu but come on, really?

    Well, not long ago I found out from the Lexus forum that the SC430 and the RX (SUV) vehicles are mainly targeted by women. Lexus put more emphasis on the luxury and premium on the SC430 rather than speed and handling. It's not meant to be a fast car, and has quiet ride even at high speeds, the V8 does it well for this. I have driven this car quite a few times in the past. It is a nicely built car. The dash, door panels, center console, the seats, are built top notch and very rich.


    The most sporty-like cars you can get from the Lexus are the IS350 Sport and IS-F.

    not the best sound exhaust for a v-10 in my opinion.

    "Sporting" cars with automatic transmission is the same as overclocking in windows. Real men drive cars with a clutch pedal and overclock in bios.

    Having said that, Lexus make some great cars but totally fails at a manual transmission. I test drove a manual IS250 a while back and shifting the gearbox was like stirring a bucket of rocks with a stick.
