IS350 vs IS-F

So as I'm driving today I see there's an IS on my @$$ ... I have a 350 so I was pretty confident I'd be able to take on them ... And I did. However at one point I had to go behind the guy and his car was an IS-F. My question is that even possible? We went from a stop sign to stop sign and I beat him twice in a row. May it have been just a regular IS with the F badge and F exhausts? It was pretty funny ... And I hate when people with ISs try racing me ...

Maybe it was a 250 with the F-Sport package

the F is quite different looking than is350 different fenders, rear exhaust and pretty sure its a bigger car. Also you can get F-sport badging etc so maybe it was a 250 or some such. IF it was a F he would have deff beaten you unless he wasnt really racing lol.

Yeah what slvrbullet said the IS-F looks different than any other IS especially the front end, which you obviously saw alot of since he came up on you and you say you were ahead.

You can get a conversion kit on sewell Lexus for a rear is-f look so that's probably what you saw an is250 converted.

how can you not know the difference between an ISF vs a 350? Cant miss those quad exhaust diffuser things. Would have been dead give away. Sounds like you beat up on a 250 which 90% of the cars on the road could beat lol.
