    I see the front end was designed by a 16yr old Fast & Furious fan.

    why even bother with a picture of the engine bay? :hsugh:

    and you can't really bash paddle shifters if it has an 8 speed tranny. that would be kind of tough to manage with a stick :o

    It's a 5.0 V8 not the 4.6. The same engine from the LS600h.

    I hate the front bumper! The IS has curvy lines and this ricer looking front bumper makes it all boxy and horrible.

    They should give you an option of having the IS350 front bumper.

    You're wasting your time if you use the paddle shifters to upshift...

    They are more for downshifting a gear or two before going into a corner.

    Of course, I'm talking about street driving here...
