I recently sold my 06 sti and decided to pick up a sgm 2011 Lexus IS-F. I will really miss the subaru but after six years it was time for something else. I absolutely love the is-f! I know some people are thinking its an auto....,but its still a blast with the paddle shifters and sport mode. Performance wise they are very close with the sti being a bit quicker...but thats about to change. I went to new england dragway 3 weeks ago and ran a firstname.lastname@example.org bone stock. Not everyones cup of tea but I figured I would share.
