Nah. It doesn't bother me. The way I look at it is, it is still a 350. There will always be people upgrading cars looks to make it something it is not. I know the difference, that's all that matters.

I like it. Even the gf knows the difference, often saying "awww cute, it's a baby F!".
HA HA HA. I like it!!!

TBH, it can do nothing but help the brand image. We could really use a larger aftermarket community and prove to Lexus (via sport product/car sales) that performance is a marketable feature worth investing in. Lexus has everyone beat in quality, but performance and styling sells cars to anyone with a pulse.

Another reason for making the 350 RWD only available as F sport is probably the slump in sales. Their wasn't anything really "cool" about the 250/350 that would bring in the younger male crowd.

Seeing Lexus carve out the 350 RWD and make it F sport only, is actually a great indication they plan to sell cars in the land of the living and not to the retirement home crowd.

As for feeling special, you know what they say about imitation...

Its like having a bunch of little minions zipping around. :)
I never thought about it that way. I might have to change my view from doesn't bother me to that I like the idea. Thanks for the insight. I just hope that Lexus will view it the same way.
