1> More power
2> Black interior roof liner (instead of ivory), and drop the chrome around the shifter and on the air vent controls.
3> Better gas mileage (reduce vehicle weight?)

5> More power
(I already added a front armrest and a subwoofer so I won't ask for those).
Actually, I am rather pleased with the package. Sure more power would be more fun and would likely shut a lot of the IS haters up...but who cares. I bought this car for me...not to impress or race them.
I am thinking about that Swift Racing Intake mod though...not sure if that makes me a hypocrite or an idiot...maybe I'm both...I can live with that.
Also - I just figured out I didn't answer the post's question...increase power, lumbar adjustments and replacing the MPG dial for something...useful.

I actually think the IS has pretty good power for its price. But of course, there is no such thing as enough power cuz one can never be satisfied. Thus, the reason why aftermarket parts for cars make a killing from us drivers who long for more speed...
The only thing I would change would be to take tape deck out and replace it with say an MP3 player or MD. I can honestly say I haven't used my tape deck more than 5 times ever since I first drove it out the lot in June.
I only have little, nit-picky things I would want changed.
1). A center arm rest (I'm not as handy as TEG, although I'd love to do something similar).
2). Self-locking doors - all the doors automatically lock as the car accelerates past 5 mph. I have this on my other car and I didn't realize how much I depended on it until I got the IS.
3). Memory seats - once you get that perfect driving position the car wash guy can never screw it up again.
I know these are all small things, but I am very happy with everything else about the car.
Boot TEG's ass off this forum for being a communist sympathizer, trust in Lexus' knowledge and judgement and marketing skills to slightly improve power, freakin armrest wins the DOH, I knew we forgot something, and offer an L-tuned car that was more go than show.
