I was wondering if there is a larger, more active, Lexus IS F forum page somewhere on the net. There are posts here that haven't been addressed in months and very little is new. Very few people on here, also. What gives?

Agreed. There is only a small percentage of us that post on the forums. You can visit CL, but the same people there are also on here. You can also visit my.IS and check out the IS F section there as well.

This forum is young and growing and doesn't have the number of members that CL has. I would like to see more participation as well! I think there are alot of people who "lurk" and never really post anything. Those are the ones we need to get involved. :cool:

agreed, most of us are on Club lexus and This one, beacause this forums is only for ISF members, well its for everyone, but majority are ISF owners or future ISF owners, sorry for not being able to answer your questions, but club lexus is a much larger and most likely your questions will be answered within like 10 minutes.


I just received my decals for being a premium member :)

I think the numbers are pretty negligible if you're talking only F owners, but I guess on a whole, yes, CL and my.IS are way bigger forums that LexusF.com.

Considering that there really are only a handful of Fs that were produced (relatively), I don't find it surprising at all.

Club Lexus is considerably larger and more active, you just have to navigate through some of the whining and biased moderators. This forum is young as another member stated but tends to be more flexible.

Good luck,

I will look over discussions on CL sometimes, but post there a lot less. There are a few members there that are extremely knowledgeable, but there are many more that are internet tough guys, and there is a lot of bashing, whining, and childish posts. I greatly prefer this forum, even if it is a little less busy.

Well said. I DO NOT like the CL forum for that exact reason. I was told, in so many words, that you have to have posted a LOT before you can have an opinion. LOL Whatever. Found this forum and like the folks here a bunch!

+1, sometimes folks are given a little authority and it gets abused.

A small amount of people own IS F's, while an even smaller number actually make it to a forum to discuss anything. From what I've experienced, the majority of those people who do, post when they have issues, general questions, etc. to be asked, as opposed to posting any significant or new information. With a deeper aftermarket or a car which was more affordable/popular in standing among enthusiast, say cars like the Miata or M3, you'd probably see both a bigger following and more activity.

I'd say this is par for the course, so far as a relatively new car is concerned, from a brand trying to shift its image. It takes time (years) to build that fanbase.

As most everyone said this site is growing, just needs more time I think. Maybe we should start recruiting the "better" members from the other forums to join here. I too am one of those guys that is a member of CL. I have yet to post there because I find myself spending too much time reading through all the bashing to find out what the thread is about. It is a bit more calm here.

I'll take small and insightful over bloated and speculative. I like that the size of this site is actually manageable - you can search and find what your lookin for most of the time. Most of the threads here span 10 pages or less, unlike some of the 335i forums I used to "lurk" in before I bought the F. I'd see guys gettin nailed for reposting or askin "noob" questions. "it's plainly explained on page 27 of the subthread for the oil change main thread" followed by some tacky emoticons.

Not to make this a rant thread, but i've been around there for 10 years now. The quality of posts and the community has been on a decline before the new owners of the site took over. It's going to be typical to see that type of behavior as 1) the cars get older 2) the cars become a lot more affordable second hand 3) age demographic gets younger as well.

This site is smaller and much more personable in my opinion. When someone posts, you can typically know who the person is and their "reputation" on the forum if you will. With CL, a lot of people post all over the place. Just like anything else, this has it's advantages and disadvantages. On this forum, almost all of us are strictly F owners and we are all running various products with our perceptions on such parts.

I have a tendency to reference CL or post links when people asks questions on here and that's simply because a lot of times such questions have already been asked on CL and commented on by members ad nauseum that such information is highly likely to be valuable to the person on this site asking the question.

I personally enjoy visiting both sites multiple times daily and will continue to do so! I also enjoy helping members with any questions they may have about the F :cool:
