  1. Another request for a sunroof option on the IS F-sport, please. I took a test drive recently, happy with the car (but only the Sport model), and was amazed to find out that sunroofs are available on all IS models except this one. The dealer showed me a second hand Sport from a few years ago which had one… and, looking at your US website, it appears sunroofs are standard there on all new IS models, but for some baffling reason, not in the UK. May seem trivial, but that alone has made me look for a different car…

    1. Hi JFF,
      Great to hear that you’ve been behind the wheel of the new IS.
      There is very low demand for that specific feature, the sunroof, on the new IS in the UK. As such it isn’t currently available as an option. This is partly due to demand and also driven by our focus on offering the very best price for the car. We’re sorry that this is a feature you’re interested in but not available however, we trust you’ll find that the new IS is one of the finest we’ve made thus far. The ride, the sound, the luxury and the feel of the car, we think, is unlike any previous model. Please do let us know if there is anything we can help you with and very much hope that we can welcome you to Lexus as a customer.
      Kind regards.

  2. We are looking to upgrade our current IS sport to a new IS 300h F-Sport, but are very disappointed to see that the much used sunroof option is not available on the F-Sport model, despite being shown in the right hand drive example on your website promotional video (so you clearly do make them probably for the Japanese market). I understand that it may not be fitted as standard, but please explain why you are stopping customers ordering it as an option especially with a black only interior – it would make the cabin much less oppressive. I am really not keen on manufacturers thinking that they should dictate what options customers can or cannot have – I may go and have a look again at Audi who seem to let me choose my options.

  3. Hi John
    Thanks for your post and for your interest in the Lexus IS 300h. We had a quick chat with our product team for you who look after vehicle specifications. Two reasons really, the first is that Lexus vehicles in the UK typically offer higher standard specifications than our competitors and therefore a lower number of selectable options and secondly our options list is selected based on historic popularity which can also be a driver in determining final vehicle specification. That said we have the opportunity to review our spec and options list on an annual basis. The next such opportunity is from September 2014 production. Should demand for a sunroof option on F Sport prove to be sufficiently high over the coming months, we would introduce sunroof as a new option on F Sport at that point.
    Hope this helps and thanks again for post. If you have any other questions please let us know.

  4. I’ve been driving a LEXUS IS300h since 1st Sept. 2013. I’m generally pleased with the car, especially when selecting the “Sports” mode.
    One disappointment is the “Cursor Control System” for managing the Sat.Nav, Radio etc. I previously had an IS250 with “Touch Control” which I think is much better.

    1. Hi Peter
      Thanks for your post and feedback regarding ownership of your IS 300h.
      We do appreciate taking the time to post your thoughts and our product team would be interested to know further regarding your disappointment with the cursor system. If there are any specific elements regarding use or if it just the system overall let us know.
      Thanks again.

  5. Hi Ive just bought a 2014 F-Sport white IS300H, Brilliant car in eveyway but i want to make it a bit more original by loosing the chrome element around the grill to match the grill itself. Could you provide the paint reference numberto allow me to match the spindle grill paint?


    1. Hi Peter, thank you for taking the time to contact us. We recommend speaking with your local Lexus centre as they can advise and order any parts in for you, they’ll also be able to point out any costs associated with these parts. Please visit: to find your local Lexus centre. Hope this helps
