Lexus offering discounted F-Sport Performance Packages
Lexus is in the process of having a spring sale of their F-Sport accessory packages the brand is currently offering for both the IS and GS models. Among the accessories being offered are a suspension lowering kit that goes for $1,450, a $4,495 kit that comes, not only with suspension-lowering, but also a new set of wheels and tires, and the high-end package that will include the F Sport suspension kit, wheels and tires, and a brake upgrade that will only cost you $8,995, saving you a pretty significant amount of $1,479.
For the high-end package, Lexus will be offering premium add-ons including exterior F Sport fender badging and the F Sport High Performance Brake Upgrade, which offers a firmer pedal feel and helps enhance fade resistance in repeated severe use. There will also be a front kit that comes with six-piston fixed calipers and cross drilled cast-iron 14-inch diameter rotors with patented internal fin design mounted on anodized aluminum hats. Then, there’s the rear brake upgrade, which will include four-piston fixed calipers and cross drilled cast-iron 13.6-inch diameter rotors with low-dust performance brake pads included on both front and rear sets.
You might want to hurry up with your decision though. The three packages will only be discounted from June 1 to July 31, which is already inclusive of installation fees.
