So, i think its sweet that the 3rd generation Is 350 has the IS-F's transmission as well. You are so lucky to be in Cali and hit those awesome roads out there!!! Im in Texas and all we have are 6 lane concrete highways!!! wish i could take my lexus to Cali and drive it out there on those roads!
Yes it is fun. I tend to drive slot of freeway and canyons. Haven't had a chance to test it out yet probably won't be till another two weeks before I can get out to my canyons to have some fun
This Saturday my detailer is coming to put a glass coating on it which means I can't drive it till that cures for 12 to 15 hours after he applies it. That's going to have to wait till the weekend of the 18th for me to play around in the canyons out here but I'll definitely be able to see the difference when I drive to work on the freeways
