I took delivery of my NX 200t F Sport yesterday. Exterior pictures are from the day before delivery and the interior picture was taken right after it was drove off the transport carrier. I got $1500 off the MSRP and a Lexus cargo tray. I noticed the rear cargo tray after I got home, didn't even know they put it in the NX. I meantioned that I wanted to order it so I guess they just through it in. It was very nice doing business with MotorWorld Lexus in Wilkes-Barre, PA.

Question for all you 200t F Sport owners on this forum.....

I've been on the fence about waiting for the 2016 models or going ahead with the 2015, but just today my Lexus dealer called telling me a local USED obsidian NX200t F Sport with 6500 miles just came in on a trade.....and it's FULLY loaded....for US $41,000.

So, what is the opinion of you F Sport drivers about your car? The reviews I watched/read early on favored the non-Sport model and/or 300h over the F Sport, but now that the F Sport has been owned and driven by "ordinary" people, what is your opinion?

OBTW, this F Sport has 17" wheels.....is that standard? I would have thought 18 or 19 inch would have been standard. My wife's little Audi Q3 has 19 inch wheels.

Comparing my X1 M Sport to the NX F Sport. The NX has a stiff ride but not as stiff as the X1. The NX has 18 inch wheels while the X1 had 19 inch and very low profile tires. My X1 had a 3 liter Dynan tuned engine that had much more power. The NX engine is similar to the current X1 engine and seems smoother and the transmission is much better than the BMW 8 speed. The M Sport handled better but a standard X1 does not handle as good as the NX F Sport. The quality seems to be the same across all 3 NX models. In the X1s there is a large difference between the packages. The quality is not there in the cheaper lines. You get the more expensive lines and they are real nice. I will never own another BMW product again because of actions and comments made by the dealer and corporate.

I'm the original poster for this thread and my F Sport came with 18" wheels.

Did you get a price on ordering a 2016 F Sport with the same options?

F Sports comes with two different wheels/tires sets (F SPORT 18-in split-five-spoke alloy wheels with superchromefinish and 235/55R18 summer tires or F SPORT 18-in split-five-spoke alloy wheels with machined finish and 225/60R18 all-season tires) and as an individual option a set of 19" wheels can be ordered (F SPORT 19-in Split-Six-Spoke Forged Alloy Wheels).

Do you guys think that at one point you might get tired of those stock wheels and get something aftermarket?

With more and more of these going on the road this might be the case for some owners.

I have not been one for aftermarket wheels. These look nice so I have no need to change.
I was thinking about the 19 inch wheels but bought this out of the dealers stock. Since I don't have to change tires every winter I am happy with my choice.
My 2 BMWs both had 19 inch wheels and needed winter tires to go anywhere in the snow.

Thanks for the responses to my queries about the F Sport model. No I haven't built or priced a 2016 model....is there a way to do this? I have only seen the opportunity to build a 2015 on the Lexus website, but one would think Lexus has stopped building the 2015s by now.

The F Sport I was looking at had 18" wheels, not the 17" in its description..... regardless, I decided not to purchase the car but instead will wait to see what changes will take place in the 2016 models.

I just put 575 miles on an Audi Q5 demo car thinking it might be a good compliment to my wife's Q3, but it is not......so I will probably stay with Lexus (I currently drive a 2006 RX400h) when it comes time to move into a new car.

I really like my wife's Q3, but the Q5's lack of "uniqueness" or excitement (not to mention the recent emission testing scandal at VAG) made me realize how much I really like my 9.5 year-old Lexus.

I like the wheels on my NX and won't be replacing them. In my area I only saw two other F Sports on the road since they came out. I considered getting a set of winter wheels/tires but probably won't.

Stock rims are fine but I do like to get a separate set of winter tires because snow and ice scares me a bit every winter.
