Would you be upset if next year's IS300 was *consistently* able to match 0-60 in 7.1? I don't know about you, but if I had bought the IS300 and it wasn't comparable to the advertised speed, I would call it false advertising. A while ago while I was a product manager for a computer chain and a video card company made claims about its speed that they couldn't reproduce. The videocard company had to recall all their cards to save face. I am not saying that Lexus should do a recall, but it would be a good gesture for them to recognize the disparity and make an official statement.
