I am kind of embarrassed to admit it but my wife and I took the plunge yesterday and bought 2 cars in one day. My Wife got a White 2006 RX330 and I got the Black-on-Black Premium Luxury ES350 (traded in my 2004 ES330). My only complaint is that I got to drive the car home yesterday and today had to fly to a conference for 3 days. So I am surfing this fabulous website about the car I canít drive.

I absolutely love the car and the features. I loved my ES330, but Lexus has taken the ES 350 to a new level. The styling, performance and Technology is fabulous. I canít wait to get back home to drive it.

PS. I am thoroughly enjoying the ClubLexus Website.

Well, mine showed up on Wednesday. I had my salesman follow me to the house of the woman who bought my car. Pulled the tags and back to the dealership. The first day I didn't even turn on the radio because I was blown away by the quietness of the car.

I have only been able to put 80 miles on her. I didn't even have the chance to drive her this weekend other than over to the beach to get a pic, which I can't post because of the rediculously small limit on file size. The smokey granite mica is gorgeous! I guess my favorite so far is the smart key. It's so nice being able to just touch the door handle to enter and lock the car. I haven't had time to read the 1 inch thick manual, but the quick guide they provided is handy. I like the computer read out for instant and average mpg.

Bottom line is....MSRP on this car is only $2K more than my 98 ES300. BUT it's so much more car! I'm actually looking forward to driving to work tomorrow!

Bought my first Lexus last May 20. Selected ES350 over IS350 after seeing and test driving one that day. I do not need ML & Nav and can not get IS350 with Luxury package only and ES350 is more spacious.

Crystal White/Light Gray Interior

Premium plus package
Preferred accessory package
Bluetooth audio
17" summer tires
Full size spare tire
HID headlamps with AFS
Power rear sunshade

Traded-in 2004 Acura TL due to many problems... my patience had ran out. Rattles, rattles everywhere... recent problem with doorlock not opening, replaced actuator and started to do it again... build quality is poor, rear bumper starting to have big gaps to the body, etc. Missed sportiness of TL but luxury, comfort, and quietness of ES350 more than makes up for it.

Traded in my 2003 ES with only 16K miles for a 2007 ES350 UL edition on May 4th..
Main reason for the trade......I hated the '03s transmission right from the day I drove it out of my Lexus dealers showroom, and for the 3 years of ownership, and many returns to have the upgrades done to the transmission I decided I had enough. I started to post about this probem on this forum and others in the Spring of 2003 and realized that I was one of the many who were very unhappy because of this.
I'm happy to say that the transmission in the 2007 ES350 took away ALL my unhappiness.

We really wanted to buy an ES Lexus last year but of all things, the cup holders were terrible. Because we always have bottled water or a Starbucks with us that became an issue. The new ES fixed that problem and added a lot more features. She traded in her 2005 Ford 500 that seemed to always have little issues to fix.

I own a 2005 Avalon Limited with NAV and it is amazing how similiar the new ES is to my Avalon.

We picked up the wife's car yesterday. She had the full 3M clear bra installed before taking delivery. Great looking car even though I haven't driven it yet. I did try to set the HomeLink and it would appear the gismo in the car is defective. The owners book for the NAVI system is huge, combined with the regular owners manual, quick guides, warranty and lemon law books, interactive CD's, well Lexus is going to have to design a new storage bin to hold this 5 pound packaget.

Talk with ya'll soon

Currently have 02 ES300 with about 37000 miles on it. Got into a slight front end accident (needed new pass side corner panel, headlight, bumper, hood had slight bend at end which was repaired) about month ago. Got it back and body shop did terrific job, but just buggin' me. Additionally, never liked the trans issue which has been complained about plenty. Test drove an 07 Es350 and boy what a difference!!!!! Few days later , I took the plunge !
Ordered an ES which should be into the dealer towards end of June.

Tungsten Pearl with Grey Leather
Premium Package
Heated/Vent Seats
Rear Seat Side Airbags
HID Lights
Park Assist
Bluetooth
Wood wheel
Full Size Spare
SIRIUS
Accesory package (Cargo net, trunk mat, Wheel locks)


Been visiting this site for quite awhile.... Lots of Great info !!

Default Black exterior

I can't decide between the black and the smoky granite mica. Is the black a flat black, or does it have some sparkle to it?

Default a picture says a thousand words...

...mine says "i'm in love" a thousand times over

07 ES 350, cashmere interior, Ultra Luxury package

just got windows tinted (no metal for GPS), invisible shield in front and detailing from heaven. My buddy used a product that gives it a "wet" look all the time. All I need is SIRIUS and I am done. No rims as of yet. I'm waiting.

I love the way the rear windshield blends with the glass roof!
