So technically you have an IS300 now... lol

Just to be neat, you should buy an IS350 badge, and make it say IS300 (to keep the 2nd gen badge look). 3 and 0 from the 350 badge to replace the 2 and 5 on your car now...

That would be badass, IMO.

Signature goes here.

Not even remotely close.

California is way, way, way, way worse.

Nobody in NC cares what you put in the car as long as it passes an OBD-2 plug in test. In CA you can't even put an intake on unless it's CARB certified.

Hell, in NC, as long as it's a 95 or older there's no emissions testing at all.

Poor fuel economy, and can't meet modern UL emissions standards.

The IS350 engine for example has vastly lower emissions, much better fuel economy, and makes the car as quick or quicker than a stock Mk4 supra.

You don't have the vast aftermarket tuning ability, but why in the world would Lexus give a crap about stuff that voids your warranty? In recent years they go well out of their way to make the cars harder to mod anyway.

Sorry for the off topic question. Knightshade, is Lexus focusing on making the cars harder to mod to push the IS-F so that performance money goes in their pocket? Or, is more so that the market they are trying to sell to wants 3-series speed with Lexus touch?

Lexus (and toyota) was moving to make cars harder to mod long before they came out with the IS-F... just look at how little can be done to the IS250/350, which has been out since 2005 now... it keeps warranty costs down
