Your opinions on the F Sports Package?

I am considering buying a 2011 IS250 F Sport and I was wondering what your guy's opinion on the package itself?

I am getting a pretty good deal on it and I might pull the trigger within the next few days.

Personally, I'm disappointed Lexus dropped the Sport Package for 2011... it has a lot more "useful" features compared to the F-sport package which is largely cosmetic.

You basically lose the rain-sensing wipers, vented seats, memory seats, power tilt/telescope wheel, and auto dim/tilt side mirrors

and all you gain is the spoiler (which you can add by itself to the old sport package), better side bolsters on the front seats, and a few cosmetic touches (shift knob, grill inserts, etc).

I'd have preferred if they had offered two sport packages (like they offer two luxury packages) and have one be the old sport package, and the other be the old sport package PLUS the cosmetic F-sport stuff.


But the F-sport is all they offer, so if you don't care about the features they dropped from the old sport package it's still the only way to get the factory sport suspension on the 350... (which I'm a fan of)

Would you mind sharing what deal you're getting. I am looking at the f-sport package 250 as well. I primarily want it b/c of the ultrasonic blue. I got 37k quoted for everything (taxes 3%) and I haven't gone in to negotiate at all yet.

tax is about 9% here. it was around 40 after TTL. I am not sure if I want to buy it yet.

Just so you know, at least where I am at USB is a super rare color. Dealers can find it in their database but it might be a while before you see one at a dealership unless you have connections or are lucky. Good luck!
