Let me sum up all these comments for you late viewers..
Lexus IS > BMW F30
The new IS is a clear winner here. No question about it.

Now I can't wait for the new IS-F!!!!

I dont think those are actual IS photos. That grille is not the final grille, spy photos have shown it with the bumper extending all the way across.

I donít even know what to say. so much...wrong with that. I feel like this is how..a judge feels when he/she is about to sentence a person who just admitted to murdering puppies and kittens. Utter disgust.

I don't think it looks too bad, looks like it took a few cues from the LFA too.

It's definitely a mess and way out there. I wonder what the regular (non f-sport) model will look like.

LMAO..............My 1st thought when I saw the front end of the IS was the face of the alien in Predator and somebody posted the picture. Too funny !!

That front end is just hideous and not appealing in the least. I do like that dark burgundy interior which looks sweet. In the end, the IS will always be just a Japanese car.........hahaha.

I'll stick with German engineering and pass on Japanese reverse engineering.

You know what's amazing ? How three people's opinions end up dictating and entire thread. Lots of follower opinions in here . Every car has design hues that may appeal to some and not others. I think the design is bold and aggressive . I like the direction they've taken. The hour glass front grill will give it a much more menacing look then the current generation. Also note how tight all the body panels come together, almost zero gap . Anyways , both cars are nice .

Here in my country we don't compare a lexus to a Bimmer, there just not in the same class, but I see it's different in the good O'l USA.
The lexus looks like a platypus, made from bits and pieces here a there, its just doesn't look right, more like an incomplete project.

anything that makes an F30 look good has to be awful, which is the least ugly?

Very 80s Camry interior... but I guess the 80s were golden years for automotive design...
