Another CL member has been hunting as well and pointed me to a new dealership (Downtown Lexus - Toronto's first downtown Lexus dealership, believe it or not). They've been open for 3 months and had a couple of models in stock. One was the Grey with Saddle Tan (Luxury AWD), which I admit is a beauty, but I'm not a fan of grey/silver, particularly since my wife's car is grey as well.

They also had a Red on Red F-Sport AWD. I fell in love at first sight (the picture of the photoshopped/lowered red on these forums helped) and worked out a deal that was almost as good as the broker. The best part is that I take delivery on Monday!

Will post some good pictures on Monday, weather permitting. For the time being here are some iPhone pictures.

Thanks everyone for your help and guidance, particularly RudeDoggy for making me aware of this dealership, their inventory, and introducing me to the sales person!
can anyone say,,,,,EXCLUSIVE!!!!!!!!!

You guys make me laugh! If there's ever a place to go to get people to make you proud and even more excited about your purchase, it's here!

I take delivery in about 4 hours...

The salesperson not only dropped me off at home after buying the car on Saturday, but he's also coming to pick me up as logistically it is tough for me to get down there tonight.

Let me know if you guys are looking for a good, honest salesperson in the Toronto, Canada area. This is the first major purchase I've made where I feel good about the whole experience and feel zero buyers remorse or any resentment about any aspect of the purchase.

And PS: Yes, I love the F-Sport rims. I'm basically paying the same price as I would have for the Luxury, but losing the rear climate controls, sunshades, heated steering wheels, AFS. Those rims and the fact that I took my wait time from 2+ months to less than 48 hours pushed me over the edge. Oh, and I wasn't a fan of the wood trim either.

I've wondered about the rear climate control as I've not seen it in person. Do you actually get any more vents for the back seat or does it just control those two tiny vents in the back of the driver's arm rest? If the latter, then I don't know that it'd be that useful anyway.

That's my biggest disappointment with my car at present--poor ventilation in the back seat. My A6 had vents in the pillars so each passenger got both on pillar and one arm rest vent. With the 4GS, its just the arm rest vents which are not that great.

i think there are 6 vents all together under the seats plus the center console.

Thanks! I haven't gotten that far in my manual. I'll have to go and look under the seats now (and likely keep the setting of "upper body & feet" when I have significant passengers in the back...

Here we go. Check her out! Now I need to practice my photography. I picasa'd one of the pictures - excuse the cheese, but I love it.

It's pretty cheesy - but Picasa makes it easy. You can easily spend a few hours trying all the different styles.

Thanks! It's killing me that I'm not driving it right now. I put the car seat in tonight, and have the day off tomorrow. So I'll take my son around town for the day.
