I don't understand why they don't equip any of them with the Pre-Collision System. I will not drive another car without it. My '04LS was the first to have it in the US!! It has saved me on 3 specific occasions and I swear by it now. I would be forced to wait the 3-4 months or whatever to special order it.

Model ES350 with Luxury Package
Starfire Pearl with Parchment interior
Navigation System Package w/ Backup camera - 8"
17-in split 10-spoke alloy wheels w/ Liquid Graphite Finish
Rain Sensor Intermittent Wiper w/ Windshield De-Icer
Blind Spot Monitor w/ Rear Cross Traffic Alert
Intuitive Parking Assist
Power rear sunshade
High-Intensity Discharge (HID) headlamps
Wood and leather-trimmed shift **** and heated steering wheel
Alloy Wheel Locks
Cargo Net & Carpet Trunk Mat

For those that like WeatherTech mats, I have put in a product request for the ES350. The only 2013 Lexus they have mats for is the RX. I was told that 2-4 weeks before they are available.
I'll be trading in my 2011 ES350. Do you know what the bolt dimension/pattern is on your wheels? I'll be putting some aftermarket wheels on the new car so I need to know the bolt pattern.

2013 300H silver with grey interior
Luxury package
Navigation
Blind spot monitoring

I put a down payment on this car in April (after they debuted the model at the NY Auto Show). Picked it up a couple of weeks ago. I cannot tell you how much I love this car!!! The blind spot monitor is worth every penny!!

2013 ES about 2 weeks ago from Brookfield Lexus in Brookfield, WI
Fire Agate Pearl with Parchment interior.
Nav, BSM, Heated steering wheel, Premium package.
My fifth Lexus. Each one better than the one before.
Gas tank reduced from 18.5 to 17 gallons; a minor annoyance.

Wink Ordered the ES300h

I'm new to the Forum and just joined the club. I ordered the ES300h with ULP, Starfire Pearl/Parchment. They told me the supply is very limited and know by next week on the delivery.

Everyone, especially me, loves the car so far. My first Lexus. I couldn't resist buying this car after a test drive immediately following the ES350 I was prepared to buy.
This is the exact car that I am looking to buy! Are you happy with the color combination and were you able to get it below MSRP? Great car.

Lexus is moronic for making it so hard to buy the radar cruise/pre collision. It's like they have the option but are afraid to sell it even though it saves lives and is a great convenience to their customers. Mercedes, BMW and Audi have their radar cruise models sitting on their lots.

Default New ES300h owner

Purchased a 2013 Lexus 300h with Sandstone Exterior and Parchment/Bamboo interior.
About 400 miles of very pleasureable driving. The 40mpg mileage claim is achievable, but you have to drive conservatively. This is my fourth hybrid vehicle and the second Lexus hybrid so I have become very familiar with some of the tricks.

The technology features are great and there are little features that continue to amaze me. The only drawback so far is that Lexus does not do real well with the software stuff that needs updating. The Lexus Enforma software crashes mightily with the lates iPhone models and iOS 6. Kind of a bummer since it took so long to get it right with my iPhone 4.

Overall, very satisfied and would recommend to anyone that it is worth a look. Other features include:
Model ES350 with Luxury Package
Sandstone Exterior and Parchment (Ivory) with Bamboo wood trim. Very appealing combo.
Navigation System Package
17-in split 10-spoke alloy wheels with High Gloss Finish
Rain Sensor Intermittent Wiper w/ Windshield De-Icer
Blind Spot Monitor
Intuitive Parking Assist
Power rear sunshade
High-Intensity Discharge (HID) headlamps
Wood and leather-trimmed shift **** and heated steering wheel
Alloy Wheel Locks
Cargo Net & Carpet Trunk Mat
Lexus Enform interface for smartphones

Received my special ordered Silver 2013 Lexus ES300h this afternoon. Eleven miles of heavy rain and commuter traffic, so not much to elaborate on.
