Ok fellas, here's my most exciting, unexciting photo of the non door gap door gap.

You decide for yourselves. :)
I love the car. I just had the RC-F/GS-F front control bushings swapped for my stock
bushings. It should solve the issue of the inner tires wearing out prematurely, plus
give it better handling. I noticed a slight increase in stiffness driving home. Not
as stiff as the CLA, which is OK by me.
Always be good to your family, friends and small animals! Keep rocking!

Rob

^ Actually, no! The lovely front grill of the Lexus will never compare to the Mighty Door Gap of the CLA.
I am also so glad to see a photo of you from your high school yearbook, DrOz! I'm sure your parents
were so pleased with the results of their orthodontia expenditure.

I bet you don't get this level of witty banter over there in the Lexus trenches mate, it won't be long before you are missing us!

It's a well-kept secret that Lexus dealers quietly screen out prospective buyers with a sense of humor, confiding that the car has a prediliction to goose its driver or spontaneously combust.

Rapido (suggested Lexus forum nom de plume) bypassed the interrogation by acquiring a used Lexus, so he's kind of a stealth humorist in those circles.

No, not so much humor in Lexus land. I'm working on them. Yes, I did sneak in. Ha!
How can I miss you when I won't go away?
Only drummers spontaneously combust, as we well know Katman!

Oh just hang around already ... you do have the heart of the CLA beating in the other car anyway so you will always fit right in
If you keep bothering me, I most certainly will! I do have the cargo tray I rescued from the CLA in the trunk
of my IS F Sport, so part of it lives on.
There are a lot more people posting on the Lexus forum, though some of the same small group post quite often.
A guy from Canada is the main IS expert. He's like you, with only a modicum of humor, so far.
There are some snarky folks as well. They get called out, which is good. Some people love a good argument.
I don't have to argue as I'm always right.

Yes, we know that, but your typical Lexus buyer doesn't.
Ahhh good point!
May be due to all that fancy dealership grub messing with their neurons .....

Sweet! I got a bottle of water at the Lexus dealer the second time I was there.
I went back to get a second key fob and have it programmed.
