    I don't like it, either. But is sure is unique, none of it looks like anything else non-lexus.

    I don't like how "boring" the doors are, the sides of the car are way too flat compared to the rest of it and to other cars.
    I don't like how the tail lights are falling off the sides, stretched-looking to follow a poorly-placed body line to the ground in front of the wheel
    I don't like the bottom of the front bumper, how it's all wavy.
    And I really don't like that grille lol, it's way too black for the rest of the car.

    It will be interesting to see the car in other colors, preferably dark colors.

    And of course, I wonder what the IS-F will be like.

    I am disappointed it doesn't look more like the new GS, THAT car looks nice, only it's too big.

    I DO like the LFA wheels and LFA gauges though. Maybe I'll put those wheels on my car lol, they look almost identical to what I was gonna buy anyway.

    But it will grow on me, and I do hope to see a lot of them on the roads.

    Now that I can see it, I don't want it anymore lol.

    yeah a darker color should look good....

    I think with some kind of filler lip kit pieces (maybe carbon fiber) to fill those curves on the bottom of the front bumper, the front would look better.

    And of course, it needs to be lowered ASAP lol.

    Keep in mind guys... this is the "f-sport" version, so the regular version will be even higher, have lamer rims, and have weaker bumpers.

    And the IS-F should be even more aggressive.

    Yeah it definitely needs some fog lights in the fog light spots lol (under the head lights, not in the center grille).

    Either it needs a window tint, or the grille needs to be lighter. It just looks weird with this huge black grille stuck on the front, without any other black to support it. Looks completely out of place.

    Not to mention that the grille takes away from the aggressiveness IMO.... or rather it makes the car look taller and skinnier. The traditional horizontal grille/bumper style makes the front end look wider. Just like people who wear stripes.... you don't put vertical stripes on a tall skinny person lol.

    the back looks like a lancer almost but the front seems so long then the back is all stubby... just not proportionate, and the front is just.... tacky! i think if it was a scaled down gs it would be perfect but this is just idk where the hell this idea came from...

    Yeah a scaled-down GS would've been perfect like I said.... though I think it will look better in person because the pictures make the car look rather big.

    The GS F-Sport, THAT is a good looking car. This monstrosity is disgusting. The taillights look melted, or mounted upside down or something, just eww. And the new "spindle" grille that Lexus is adopting across the range is horrible.
