: Will F seats be heated and cooled?

As one of the buyers of the Neiman Marcus IS-F, I tried to find out if the front seats are also going to be cool seats. I have a new IS350 that has both, but the spec's so far on the F, only shows heated. No one at the dealer or customer service can answer this question.

Haven't heard a word. Gave my dealer the 5 grand and that's all I heard.

No cooled seat with the Neiman Marcus IS-F, as it has the sport seats.

Heated seating only for ALL IS-F's including the NM edition. Ventilated did not make it as a feature on the IS-F sport seating unfortunately.

How do you get to the officials that determine what features might be wanted? Is there a suggestion box? I could tell you this, no one in the Lexus customer service has a clue. I have a new RX350 and a IS350 and had a question that I wasn't able to locate in the manual about tire pressure and it happened to be on a weekend, so I figured I call their service. First I met with Dumb and then I figured I call back, but met with dumber. Now I did have this question on the seats of the IS-F and this rep beat them all. I'm glad I found these forums. Appreciate all you people taking the time and creating these great sites.

A few months ago...Lexus approached us enthusiasts on a survey. It was a specific survey that actually helped them choose options that will be available for the IS-F. Here were the results...

Most of them are fond of ultrasonic blue with black interior.
Thatís a nice survey!

I just got my IsF Yesterday, and was sad to see no cooled seats. I traded my 06' is350 that had everything. The side plates in the door jamb don't light up blue either, and that was kind of a shock since they went all out with the blue accents... I thought that was a sweet addition to my 350... :confused:

Sales lady at Newport Lexus told me seats come ventilated as well..........seems like she does not know any better sadly.

Will go to dealership sunday and check the cars, they were expecting to receive few more

The seats are perforated and heated but not ventillated.

Seats details confirmed indeed. Only heated seats, they could not fit the fans for cooling.

Disappointment as once you try ventilated seats, you love them

This might work? A CPU fan that can push air up?

I went to test drive an IS-F yesterday and on the sticker there was no mention of ventiled seats nor was I able to find them in the car. I went online after to compare colors and other option packages and I noticed that on the website they mentioned "heated and ventilated seats" even for the base IS-F.

Do you think it was added to the newer 08 IS-Fs?

Must admit that I was a little surprised, and a little disappointed ...

But only a little - :D I can live with it.

First Shipments not included. (hardly works anyway?)
Cars may include option in future if people let Lexus know they want it.
(it is re directed air from the cabin, not the Pellitier system used in the LS vent. seats- true a/c seats)
This option is not as easy as dealers spec'ing build on an allocation because it's not port installed. -Enjoy the car (and crack the sunroof to cool down!)

Do you think that they have already started to do that since it is now listed as a standard feature on the website?

I am patient and am willing to wait until Lexus sorts the first year kinks out.

Ventilated seats would be great ....

Hopefully Lexus offer them in the future along the "sport" seats

SoCal, Florida, Vegas ...... it is a must :)

Yeah...Car dealer must have suggestion box or a costumer service to make their client satisfied with their service..

might be sooner than later. I noticed ventilated seat "information" on "TIS" our dealership technical information site that referenced heated and ventilated seat scematic information recently

Thanks for the updated information. I am waiting until the 09s come out.
