F Badge on the F-Sport

Does anyone feel a little less special now that there are these little F-Sport IS's running around wearing our badges?? Or am I just a little nutty...

I don't like it. As little as this is, it still takes away from the ISF. As it is, the ISF only has a few cosmetic difference from the IS. I'm not knocking on the Fsport. I just think Lexus need to find other ways of showing the Fsport than taking cues from the ISF. As it is, when the USB color became non exclusive, I was a bit unhappy. The ISF is understated and I think a few more exclusive cues will be cool. I agree it's flattering others want to be like an ISF. But how special do you feel when most regular people already have a hard time telling a difference between an ISF and regular IS?

Why do people fix up their cars and make it different? Besides the obvious in upgraded performance, I'd say to stand out also. To look different than others, to set themselves apart. Simple change of wheels, rear diffuser, painting calipers, vinyl wrap roof, etc. These are all things we do, not only because we enjoy it and like it, but it also makes our cars different. First comes USB color being available, then the Fsport badge, now aftermarket ISF fender and rear bumper is available. It doesn't bother me THAT much, but I'd be lying if I said it didn't bother me at all. I'll stop rambling my 2 cents....LOL
