Lexus Announces Special Pricing on F Sport Performance Packages

TORRANCE, Calif. (May 10, 2010) – To build on the excitement surrounding F Sport performance accessories, Lexus today announced a special offering on select F Sport accessories.

The promotional pricing will be available for all applicable models including: IS sport sedan, IS convertible coupe and GS 350 rear-wheel-drive (RWD) luxury sport sedan. All F Sport accessories have been engineered respectively for each Lexus. This exclusive promotion will run from June 1 – July 31, 2010 and include three different packages.

The F Sport suspension kit will be offered for a Manufacturers Suggested Retail Price of (MSRP) of $1,450 representing a savings of $549. The F Sport suspension kit includes lowering springs that reduce ride height approximately one-inch in the front and rear; and a rear chassis member brace for better cornering and enhanced chassis stiffness under aggressive driving conditions. RWD models also feature a front and rear anti-sway bar set, while all-wheel-drive (AWD) models have a rear anti-sway bar. The anti-sway bars help reduce body lean and provide flatter cornering.

A package including the F Sport suspension kit plus wheels and tires will have a MSRP of $4,495, a savings of $1,499. The RWD models of the GS 350, IS 250, IS 350, IS 250C and IS 350C equipped with F Sport forged 19 x 8-inch front wheels and 19 x 9-inch rear wheels ride on Michelin 225/35ZR19 and 255/35R19 Pilot Sport PS2 tires, respectively. The IS 250 AWD sedan features F Sport forged 18 x 8-inch wheels and Yokohama 225/40R18 Advan S.4. all-season tires.

An additional package including the F Sport suspension kit, wheels and tires, and a brake upgrade will carry a MSRP of $8,995, a savings of $1,479. This package also includes exterior F Sport fender badging. The F Sport High Performance Brake Upgrade offers a firmer pedal feel and helps enhance fade resistance in repeated severe use. The front kit features six-piston fixed calipers and cross drilled cast-iron 14-inch diameter rotors with patented internal fin design mounted on anodized aluminum hats. The rear brake upgrade has four-piston fixed calipers and cross drilled cast-iron 13.6-inch diameter rotors. Low- dust performance brake pads are on both front and rear sets.

Lexus launched its signature line of sport performance parts in Spring 2008 with accessories for the IS 350 and IS 250 luxury sport sedans. After its successful launch, Lexus expanded the F Sport performance accessories line for the current generation GS Series (gas) and the IS C.

      That's a heck of a chassis brace. Not just the little bar I was picturing. The suspension package is a pretty good deal for the (discounted) money.

      As for the other packages, if you were considering spending $9000+ on parts for an IS, maybe you should consider the IS-F instead.

      if comparing msrp to msrp (and not including "my friend can get this hookup price at so-and-so shop"), the new "sale" prices are pretty competitive to what you would spend on aftermarket upgrades for the same components. not bad.

        You maintain your warranty if you have these parts installed at a dealership, an option not available with third party aftermarket parts.

        Also, an A4 or 328i are nowhere near as fast in a straight line at a very similar price, and the S4 and 335i are only slight faster in a straight line at a much higher price.

        Audi S4 auto starts at $47,300, Lexus IS350 auto starts at $37,595.
        Almost 10 grand for an extra 20 or so hp?
        Also if your interested in "straight-line" times, you're going to want a car that can put ALL its power on the rear wheels, so again, the Lexus is the way to go.

      Considering that installation is included in the price..I would say it's not bad
      The first package = springs, swaybars, and chassis brace for $1500. Going aftermarket would probably cost you $900 and then you have to pay for it to be installed. OK but not great.
      the next step costs $3000 more, but you get forged 19" rims with Michelin PS2 tires (pricey!). A set of 19" forged rims will cost more than $2000 and Michelin's ain't cheap especially the PS2's.
      The brake upgrade seems expensive, but comparable to the aftermarket..$4500 for a front and rear BBK is a standard price..but considering they install it for you that is a good deal

        The big brake kit comes with both the suspension package and wheel/tire package for that price...
        • 4 Years Ago
        The $9000 package doesn't just come with the brakes it also includes the suspension package and the rims/tires.
      • 4 Years Ago
      This is a good attention getter for the Lexus IS but why wasn't this offered before. This model might be up-graded next year.

      Sounds like a great advertisement, Autoblog. Really? Discounts on performance parts worthy of a blog post?
      • 4 Years Ago
      I like the fact Lexus is getting there performance on.

      Keep it up.

      So does the 9k (er, 7.5k?) top package include the lowering kit, new wheels, tires, and big brakes front and rear plus all installation for all of that? Not that I could afford it or the car anyways haha.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Then it's a pretty good price, actually. Considering its OEM, has warranties, and new brembos that big at all corners could easily cost 4g's, and new oem wheels and tires could be a few grand too. The lowering kit is overpriced though, and there's better wheel choices out there.
