2014 Lexus IS Review and Track Test (IS 250, IS 350 and F-Sport models)
Every car company hates the BMW 3-Series. It's always the benchmark, always the sales champion, always the golden boy. BMW shifted nearly 100,000 3-Series models in America last year and they did so not by being "the best" luxury sedan, but by pandering to the shopping public's desires. Buyers have shown they want a comfy ride with a luxury logo on the front, they want good fuel economy and they want to hear journalists say how well the car handles on a track. The average buyer will never be on a track, but it's critical to know your car belongs there. The old IS was a good car on the track, but its demure looks sold more on Lexus' reliability and dealer reputation than the car's track diaries. As we know from Volvo and Lexus' sales numbers in this segment, two things don't move metal: reliability and safety. For 2014 Lexus went back to the drawing board completely redesigning the IS sedan to be their most dynamic sedan ever. Does it have what it takes to take on the Germans and Infiniti's new Q50? Join us as we head to Austin to look at the all-new 2014 Lexus IS 250, Lexus IS 350, Lexus IS 250 F-Sport and Lexus IS 350 F-Sport.

The Lexus LFA Gets An Oil Change
Quite a long process if you ask me!
I had the privilege to witness the oil change service on a Lexus LFA. It takes a good 30 minutes to even get it on the rack and then the oil change takes about 2 1/2 to 3 hours.
The LFA has a dry sump system for the oil to prevent engine oil starvation through high speed corners and lowers the engine's center of mass.
My daughter actually made an appearance in this video too. :)
This system holds 14.8 US QTs and it is required to drain, fill, cycle fresh oil, drain, fill, top off and change filters. Seems like alot of work huh?
I'll be uploading a ton of pictures of this oil change to:
