Default Hello from Tennessee

I've been looking around for a while and finally found an IS. 2007 IS350 with the F Sport package. I bought it from the original owner that special ordered. Only had it a few days but I'm really happy with it, at least till I can bump up to an ISF. Great forum, glad to be here.

1. 2007 IS350 F-Sport Package
2. RWD
3. 212 Black
4. Stock 17's
5. Rear trunk spoiler will be here next week
6. Black Interior
7. It's a daily driver, besides the Fsport suspension, Fsport breaks, and Fsport intake that's on it, maybe getting a new set of wheels if I can ever decide what I want, way too many options to choose from to decide.

Nice car but that isn't an Fsport and those are just regular is350 brakes just painted.

Painted by who? They came that way from the factory with drilled and slotted rotors. Sorry man, but I beg to differ. It's got FSport package on the window sticker so I'm going to say that would be more accurate . It was like a $3800 option.

From the pictures it doesn't look like the Fsport bbk but I might be wrong. And also I don't think they had an Fsport option for 07.

Finally crossed over from a BMW to Lexus & couldn't be any more satisfied!
2006 Lexus IS350, Starfire Pearl, ML fully loaded package, RWD, Black interior...

Changed out the grills to the black ISF honeycomb style, Plastidipped the stock 18s (for now, just wanted something until I find better rims to slap on ), VHT spray tinted the tails and rear reflectors, 20% tint all the way around, installed Injen cold air intake & just ordered the satin black vinyl wrap to throw on the roof when it gets to the shop.

Next ideas will be to black out the chrome window trim, a front spoiler, thinking a rear spoiler would add the Stormtrooper effect I'm going for & then hopefully some RoadMagnet lowering springs (heard good things about those aside from coilovers) & I want to black out the headlights, but still trying to find the right bulbs I want to throw in ...

Okay but I believe that's for the 08 model and the Fsport badge didn't come with the car till 2011 and also your brakes don't look like this from the pic.But regardless it still a nice car just hope you didn't pay extra for the f sport package.

I didn't pay anything extra but the guy I bought it from did when he bought / ordered it new. Dude, all I know is that's the way it came from the factory. It has the F Sport badge, intake system, sway bar, and breaks. It says F Sport package on the window sticker, that's all I know, I'm no expert but it's nice to have one on the forum. Honestly, I got a hell of a deal on the car and I'm really happy with it, F Sport or not. I'm just glad my old Infiniti FX35 has a new owner and I have a Lexus again. I have 6 drivers in my family and all of us have Toyota / Lexus vehicles, you can't beat Toyota. My 2003 4runner has 160,000 miles on the 4.0 and it runs like a new one. One of my sons has a 2002 4 cyl Camry that has 290,000 miles on it and hasn't had to do anything to it. He did break down and bought a Highlander a couple weeks ago with 100,000 miles on it so he has something newer to drive. Now I have to try and sell an 02 Camry with almost 300,000 miles on it and I'm betting the thing would go another 100,000 with no problem.

Default New to me IS350C and First Post

Hi all! I'm Jeremy and live in Nebraska. I've been a lurker for several years on this form just have never posted. I've owned 4 Lexus cars to date. My first one that I bought was a new 2001 RX300. Following that was a new 2005 RX330. Then a used 2001 ES300. And my latest the 2010 IS350C seen below...

For the most part, I love the IS350C so far, but I returned to the forum because of 2 things that irritate me. The seatbelt chime and the NAV lockout. I will be fixing the chime tonight thanks to the posts I found on disabling it. And I have already ordered the Prestigious Society NAV Override after seeing reviews and comparisons posted on the forum. When I do the install, I will take detailed pictures and post a "how to" for everyone. I am also a member of the Kawiforums because I love sportbikes and track racing and have posted lots of very informative "how to's" there. I will try to offer the same type of informative stuff here as I encounter it.

1. 2010 IS350C
2. RWD
3. Matador Red Mica Exterior
4. 18" Liquid Graphite Wheels
5. No Spoiler
6. Black Interior
7. Has the Mark Levinson system, and I have a Prestigious Society NAV Override on order.

1. 2009 IS350
2. RWD
3. Tungsten Pearl
4. Factory 18 inch wheels 225/255
5. Spolier
6. Black Interior
7. I flew to Florida from Dallas to buy this IS350 and drove 700 miles back. The car was $20,968 with 18 inch wheels and Navigation. That was the best deal buy far I found while I was searching. I was told the car was priced too low, but they honored the ad. Good people.

i feel like such an idiot. I just started looking for an IS to buy this week and have been searching for IS 350 everywhere in AWD and couldnt find anything. I just realized they didnt make an AWD option. Also, i wish i could post in the classifieds that i am looking for one, but wont let me post because im new.

rant over.

yeah they are right. those are not F Sport brakes, those are standard IS350 brakes with an f sport sticker. actual f sport models didnt start until 2011. you can get f sport parts like the intake and badges, exhaust, etc.... but thats not an f sport. i really hope you didnt pay extra for it though

1. 350
2. RWD
3. Tungsten Pearl
4. Stock 18's (for now)
5. No spoiler (for now, undecided)
6. Black interior
7. Selling my Subaru WRX (seen in first pic), considered a G35 sedan. Didn't like it, loved the Lexus so I bought it. Tried some 250 AWD but they were a bit too slow. Figured the AWD would be nice coming from my Subaru WRX, but I wanted a change.
9. Toronto, Canada area
