    Why didn't you guys compare the faster m3 comp model? Doesn't make sense.

    Sorry but the continental tire search barely works. I had to look the tables up myself. Even when they obviously have both tires available, and you input specs for the front and rear. Adding a second one suddenly breaks evrrtthing,

    I'll go for BMW M3. It's simply the better car. You can also buy an M Performance Wing for the M3 if you want it to to look more track focused.

    Lexus looks build more solid than the m3 TBH i cant just accpet the grills on the bmw if you compare with the older f80 backside looks amazing interior looks fanatstick but the front ahhhh. I wish they had the same frontlift of the oldsr m3 and m4 on the current ones i think it will much more eye taking , M4 gts 2019 is better looking than the lexus.

    @eduardo rivera BMWs are reliable for the first 5,6 years and then they start haviing problems but you can still drive them. Is reliability the only reason why you choose the lexus?

    @eduardo rivera people that buy/lease new luxury cars don’t keep them for more than 3-6 years anyway so long term reliability doesn’t matter. The M3 has a nicer interior, better tech, is faster if you get the Competition model, also is available in manual and also has 4 doors etc.

    If your not into "modifying" your vehicle and wanna good reliable, quick car the Lexus can't be beat (just regular RC-F). However if your like most enthusiasts, stock power is never going to be enough! Thats where the bimmer has the clear advantage with the added twin hair dryers and forged internals! Just a simple tune will easily net ya 650hp +!!! It would cost a fortune to make similar power in the Lexus! With that being said the bimmer has my vote 👍

    Spot on at 18:25. Most of the people I know with the track edition or fuji speedway edition RCF already had some kind of F car or Lexus and bought one of those cars. I personally think that a normal used RCF is the best value for the car. You can pick one up in the 40k+ range and at that price it's totally worth it without a doubt.

    THE IS500 WILL BE A HUGE DISSAPOINTMENT. NOBODY WILL BE TEST DRIVING THESE UNTIL ON SALE FOR A REASON. THEY WILL AND DO SUCK. If the IS500 is a step down from this it will be a disaster and I HAVE SAID THIS from the get go. Lexus does nothing to change their cars.

  • Glenn Nichols

    AND HERE IS PROOF THE NEW IS500 IS A JOKE AND I HAVE BEEN SAYING THIS ALL ALONG. IT IS A REBAGED RCF and won't be anywhere NEAR what the ISF provided for it's time. PROMISE THAT. When all you have is a washed up and never was Townsend Bell telling you how it has special F badges on the engine cover you are in for a disapointment
