Yeah I dunno why I put 681. 631 is what Lexus recommends.

I wonder if the TSIB on the 250/350 for the mirror might make a difference on the F?

Possible, but the F has a lot less forgiving suspension than the 250/350. The extra harshness is also attributed to the lower profile tires and larger wheels.

Audi is very nice cruiser - but does not have the juice...my 3 will outperform it anyday.
IS-F is the best value for the money vs M3/Audi-S,RS-4/C63 - cannot wait to get one!

THERE WAS A RECALL OF SORTS FOR MIRRORS ON THE IS250/350 AND I HAD IT DONE, IT MADE A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE, EVEN BETTER THAN THE MIRROR I'VE GOT ON MY F NOW. I'M ASKING MY SERVICE TECH TO LOOK INTO IT.
ANYONE ELSE NOTICING THIS?

My mirror vibrates a bit too. I'm going to live with it since I hardwired my 9500ix into it. I also put a little blue locktite on the screw that secures the mirror to the window to keep it from coming loose.
