I don't know exact numbers, but last detail I had heard was 3% of Lexus USA sales were for manual transmission cars.

Jeff,

While we're on the topic of production units, would you happen to have a guesstimate on the ratio for 2nd Gen IS250s and IS350s sold in the US? I've asked Lexus Corp this question several times but they've never been able to provide me an answer.

I've got one, however over here in South Africa they are not that difficult to find, i would say 1 out of every 8 cars I've come across is MT.
What I've been told by the Lexus dealer over here is that only 10% of all the 2nd gen is250's produced were MT....not sure what that equates to in real world figures though.

I have a MT IS250. While hunting for my current car i think i came across 6 or 7 with MT. Most of them had the suede interior though. Luckily i found a leather interior one.

Based on the sample I observe in my city, in every 10 Lexus IS on the street, I only see may be 1 IS350. I think IS350 occupy less than 10% of the total sales of all the IS. Well, the sample is quite small and not representative of the whole US but it does have some truth to it, definitely no more than 10%.

I don't remember the exact number but I think it's about 1500 per year?

Jeff: correct me if I am wrong.....
