    I'm a bit confused by this video. They put a Lexus IS-F against the 'current champion' the RS4. Hang on I thought the new M3 stole the title about a year ago, if only by a fraction.

    Also I find it hard to believe that someone can review those 2 cars and not mention that one has RWD and the other has 4WD, it's quite an important detail isn't it?

    Another thing that makes me a little sceptical is all the views of the Lexus inside and out just before he takes it around the track. It seems a little one sided and showy.

    I find it hard to believe a Lexus can be better than an RS4 or an M3!

    I don't doubt that it's good. I just think the review is a bit weird.

    Did you know 2 of the tailpipes in the Lexus are fake?? That on it's own has made me dislike it. Then add that front end....:puke2:
