    Lexus IS-F, V and Bimmer competition ?

    I wonder if Lexus/Toyota is finally waking up. They have some nice car's coming out soon. The Supra looks interesting but our closest competition looks like the Lexus IS-F ( http://www.lexus.com/fcv/is_f.html ). Looks nice, a little boy racer, but so does the new 2008 CTS. What are your thoughts?

    Lexus has the ability to achieve whatever they want, whenever they want. I wish I could say that about Cadillac...

    Interesting looking car. Not sure about the exhaust stack.

    Meh I was kind of skeptical about this car at first, but overall it looks pretty good. I'd still would waaaay rather have the new M3 though, no comparison.

    the new 335i should be a hit with the tuners and have alot of potential with its forced induction set up. Turbos make for cheap and easy HP. THe IS F is sweet but will be costly to wring out HP. My wife and I are going to look at both as her next car.

    Mercedes C63 AMG for the win.

    Designed from ground up to beat the M3.
