The reviewer seems to have a strong Audi bias and in many cases not accurate.

Also he used terms like:
"toyota fanbois" when it comes to liking the styling
"intake howl makes it feeler than it actually is"

and my fav of all "ISF is not much quicker than 335i"
and "gallardo is not much faster than the RS4"
looks like his perception of "not much faster" is quite inconsistent!!!

wonder how credible this rewier's word is?


He also puts them in the class of "hot rod" sedans..i was always under the impression that hot-rod was american and germans considered themselves high-tech.

that editor should fine another job. listen i had an imola yellow rs4 with 7k miles and traded it in for the isf. coming from someone who owned both cars i can tell u ,that the lexus rides better ,and is a faster car , and is nicer looking. though the audi handles like its on rails ,i got to give it that i took some crazy turns with that car and i felt very safe to the awd. i raced a new m3 about month ago. heres the deal this road had alot of corners and straight aways . i kept up with beemer and was on his ass to pass him ,but when i hit the turns i could not catch him. i think the lexus is a great balanced car , but hitting those turns fast ,the beemer kept goin , not much braking hard on his part.overall i love the lexus. and am happy with my purchase. as far as this guy regarding the f isnt much faster than a 335 ,go learn the real numbers and know what your talking about. as far as the gallardo not much faster than the audi, guys sounds like a real moron.go find another job.

Interesting vid. Can't remember if I saw it on here or another site. Like everyone stated, some bias opinions on there but what are you going to do, can't make everyone like the car (although I do enjoy seeing fair comparisons :cool: )

If I'm not mistaken, the RS4 costs approximately $20k more than the IS-F, so you would hope it would be better. Not that I'm saying it is :)

I think I heard that Audis have the worst customer retention rate of any (luxury for sure) automaker. Evidently things are constantly going wrong and people get fed up with them.

If my F does as well as my previous Lexus, then I'll be happy as a clam with minimal if any problems.

Hey guys I'm sorry I didn't see this one earlyer but only if I say the guy who said this sh*t. My best freind has a RScraper and when I first got my car I had to go at it rite away. So from 0-75 about I pulled easly 1 car and not even broken in. 8,000 miles later with no cats and ams oil air filter and 0w30 oil and 4 races later easly pulled1-1/2 to 2 cars ahead. So that guy that got paid by audi can come by my house any day.hahaha jack p.s. It still a nice car

All,

Please see below the link to the "REAL" Lexus ISF and Audi RS4 Shootout. Many apologizes if this has been posted before. I just want to show an unbiased opinion of the ISF and RS4. Besides, I'm getting tired of the reviewers hating on the F. Please note, the GRIN and LAUGHS coming from the reviewer while lapping the F. Daym, I can't wait to drive my car again! Enjoy!!!
