well... one thing that is VERY common in manual IS's is a knock whenever you shift - especially at low speeds. It was debated a lot on the IS boards, and people bitched at lexus, but it doesn't hurt anything to the best of the tech's knowledge. We suspect it has to do with the rear diff mounts - and since I work for Speed Source and we like designing new poly and metal mounts - we might make a solution in the future :)

All I do is turn up the tunes, and I never really notice anymore :lol:
