Is M3 only manual? So an auto M3 will ruin this car?

@tony I wish I did. I was on a four hour car trip, and only saw two, parked right next to each other (blue convertible, silver coupe) there are not much at all where I live. There are lots of 550i's, but for the same money, no one got an m3

basically they should have called it the IS-CF
John Serely Jul 17, 2012
All company's do that, reece

I actually kind of like it. They should make a hard top coupe though.

The curves don't attract me to this car. I'll stick with my IS 250 :-/

Lexus should just stick to building comfortable cars.. Their F division is just a waste of time IMO..

They really did butcher it when they made it into a convertible

I think the Lexus IS convertible is the worst convertible job ever done
