Now that Lexus has implemented more F Sport vehicles, I got to change my vote... Putting same F badge in the same places, and not using the different looking "F Sport" badge (with the little F and "Sport") is starting to annoy. They really should differentiate between badges.

Although I still think spicing up the line-up is healthy for Lexus, they are in danger of diluting the logo and halo brand image of the true F cars.

If your reading this Lexus, establish F Sport as its own unique product/image. You have the "tuner"-like aftermarket parts and the pre-"tuned" vehicles to cement that brand imaging... and distance it from the real F cars. You don't see copy cat M badges all over a 335i because it has M Sport cup holders and 18" rims.

That one's not too bad. At least the badge is an "F-Sport" badge, and not the same as ours. So we can still tell if it is a true F just with a quick look.

Fing Badges

I do not like the badges anyway. Granted looks are subjective, I wish my F didn't have the F badges. The cleaner sleeker look of the current coupe concepts without the "lettering" would be nice.
