I just looked at Lexus's website and their own claim is 0-60 in 4.6, 1/4 in 13.0 ... same as what GM gives for the Camaro.

It weighs a bit less (~150 lbs), and it does have a bit more aggressive gearing. But it also has less torque and skinnier tires. My gut tells me those factors should essentially cancel out. It also looks like the tranny is a dual clutch auto, that might account for its edge over the Camaro.

I think he meant used, he bought a 2008 for $43k...sounds about right.

Well, IMO he is driving a 'Chick' car anyway.

But, if you guys were to race 100 straight times, all things being equal, I think he beats you 75 of them.

Just put a few simple bolt-ons and you turn those tides.

the isf is significantly faster on the top-end over the l99, drivers race with the ls3, and somewhat of a drivers race with an l99 up to triple digits.

I'd take a CTS-V or 2 Camaros, but to each their own.

And luxury my ass..................... I've driven an IS-F......Perfoemance, very nice.........

Luxury? I've described Bonnies Lexus as a Toyota Carolla with a 15 thousand dollar 'L' on the front and back.

Please. If that's luxury, there's a REALLY fine line between mediocre and Luxury. I don't see it.

Hmmm. Which memory setting do you program in the Camaro for her? I bet there's one set for you in the lexus. How about the vented seats? Does the Camaros steering wheel tilt up and away when you shut it down? Didn't think so. When you're driving her around in the Camaro and your hot and she's cold who gets to decide? Not a problem in the IS. Can you even get factory nav in the Camaro? Back up camera? You do know that her wood inlay is real wood don't you. While you're turning a key she's left hers in her purse. Press the unlock on your key fob twice and hold down. What happens? Know try hers. Gotta admit the rear sun screen is nice to. Auto adjust side view mirrors? Rain sensing wipers? I'm just busting your balls but I gotta say that I own an IS and am currently shopping Camaros and the interiors are night and day. Now if were talking quarter mile times she's got nothing for ya.
