Not digging that Lexus interior at all. Exterior styling also falls flat in comparison to the M4.

I hate to admit it but the Lexus looks better than the M4 besides the front bumper. Now the M3 is where it is at the body lines and curves just flow so much better than the M4

I can't fathom to spend all that time and effort and neglect that an automatic transmission doesn't cut it in 2014 in this segment. By not offering a DCT they have virtually guaranteed that they will lose every comparison performed by enthusiast magazines independent on how good the rest of the car is.

My wife has a 2014 IS 350 (non-f sport) and I love the tech look of the interior of her car. I also am not enthused about the RC-f exterior but it will probably be fun as hell to drive.

I only like the front fenders on the Lexus. The rest looks like a Hot Wheels car. The grill is way to big IMO. The cluster is pretty cool too.

OK, I will admit that I like the GS-F Sport's looks, INCLUDING the spindle grille. And I can even tolerate the IS-F Sport.

But the grille on this thing, man, that's one step over the line right there. Wow.

That Lexus is hideous. If you're thinking rationally, there is no comparison to be made here.

I hate to say, but I think its time for a revolution in regards to design at BMW again, Mercedes and Lexus have really stepped up their game in terms of styling whether it be vulgar or not, at least their cars stand out from the rest. BMWs are kinda beginning to fall into Audis boring design language, I was behind an 7, 3, X1 and 5 the other night, and really you couldn't tell the difference which was which by the taillights. I know the bars are different in each one, but they all have the same look. Any non car person would probably not have known which was which... Love or hate the Bangle era cars, at least they stood out from the rest.

Call me crazy but I find the regular RC350 to be more elegant than the RCF. The RC350 is aggressive but still remains elegant (apart from the polarizing front end).

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder I suppose. But why does Lexus insist on putting that cheap plastic in the middle of the center stack! The interior of the GS is so nice and that plastic in the IS and RC is so annoying to me. Otherwise I actually like it. Of course I will wait to see in the flesh to judge either. Not sure how heavy it will be either. From the MT article, heavier than the IS-F.

you are on point. FINALLY SOMEONE WHO AGREES WITH ME! We are going back to the same sausage different length nonsense. To make a long story short, our cars are losing their identities of being a 3 series or a 5 series or a 6 series individually, they are all just clearly bmw's. Enthusiasts are unable to identify the different BMW vehicles at night from the front and/or back of the cars so how the hell can anyone tell? We are in big trouble and im not standing behind any of the new BMW's with blind loyalty and that KILLS me because I want to. It used to be like that and no matter what I will always buy/drive a BMW but damn, between 2000 and 2010 I would be proud of every BMW on the road no matter what small flaws it had. BRING BANGLE BACK FFS!
