Tiff Needell from Fifth Gear test drives the IS-F.

Tiff was very annoyed by the gearbox.

It kept Bleeping at him on upshifts and downshifts. He kept saying "SHUT UP!" Bleep "JUST GIVE ME A GEAR, SHUT UP!" Bleep, Bleep, Bleep....

He also complained of too much oversteer and he only used 5 out of the 8 gears on the track.

Tiff loved the 5.0 liter throaty roaring V8 sound.

All and all, it put a smile on his face and said it was a very good effort by Lexus.
