Default New Cab ----

Well I pulled the trigger. Went to the local dealer and then compared the IS 350 to the BMW 328i and the Infinity G cab. The fit and the finish went to the IS hands down. The quality of the roof sealed the deal. The BMW was its usual self, but was about 10K more.

Driving them back to back for me was a wash. The handling in the BMW was better, but I can mod the IS with the F-sport suspension package that will be enough for me at the fraction of the cost of the BMW. I always prefer a naturally aspirated engine.

I am picking up my cab on Friday.

2012 IS350C
Nebula Gray/Black
18" graphite alloy wheels
Navigation
Headlamp washers
Park Assist - front and back
Luxury Package

I have attached a iPhone picture of my new ride, more to follow.

+1 ^^^ Have them get rid of the dealer advertisment or the deal is off.
You will have a smile on your face every time you get in your new ISC.;-)

Couldn't agree more - very nice ride, but shame on the stealership for adding their cheesy bages in multiple place. If there is even the smallest mark from those stupid stick-ons I would force the dealer to replace the car or offer a deep discount. Shame on them for not knowing their customer.

The badging is the first mod that I am making, the deal was sealed only if the badging was removed. That large metallic star is heavy and has to be taken off very carefully.

Yes, the dealership badges all the cars that they sell.

Ugh, the ownership changed hands, and the star badging became prominent.

Love the ride!!!

I seem to prefer the darker colors in cars, but you can never go wrong with white!! It was my second choice for my cab.
