2. Nav
distant third... might get the sport package.

How does the manual compare to the automatic IS250? Did you have to order it or did they have it in stock? What dealer did you find it at?
I have not been able to go out and try an automatic IS250 (good idea, I'm going to do it)... I told the dealer last summer what I was looking for, so I'm not sure if it was individually ordered through Lexus or if he was just able to find it. He did, however, get everything I asked (int/ext color, trans, nav). I'm one of the few people who prefers not to have HIDs, which helped my wallet considerably.

Seriously though, the nav makes the car.

Default Tungsten Pearl on Sterling - Sport Package

Hello folks! Just signed up for your site. Great bunch of poeple with plenty of constructive feedback.

I've owned most Acuras for the last 7 years (EL, RSX-S, MDX, TL) but the TL (despite it being a nice car) was the turning point. The car build was pretty good but not what I expected. The other Acuras (built in Japan) were markedly better but I just couldn't tolerate the rattles and poorly-fit things here and there. With I/E, the TL was fast but required some finessing to get all the power down.

Recent JD Powers Vehicle Dependability Study results have Honda and Acura at 9th and 10th rankings seperated by a few problems per 100 vehicles. Of course, as many of you are aware, Lexus ranked first with almost 100 less problems than industry average (Toyota ranked 7th).

Rankings, smankings. Once I test drove the 350, I knew that this was the car. The rear seating area is a tad cramped and fitting three sets of golf clubs may prove to be tough but blowing almost everything off the road more than suffices for these shortcomings.

Anyway, on to the rollcall!

1. 350
2. RWD
3. Tungsten Pearl
4. 18s - stock
5. OEM spoiler
6. Sterling
7. On order - haven't decided on receiving date (before or after the snow)
8. Sorry no pictures but here's a pic of my TL.
9. Toronto, ON

1. IS250
2. RWD
3. Tungsten Pearl
4. 18s
5. no spoiler
6. Black
7. Navigation Package with bluetooth and backup camera
8. Not delivered yet

Just bought this car yesterdat from JM Lexus in Margate Florida. They charged me sticker which was about $35,214 plus $600 dealer fee. They did give me a $500 discount though which is not much off of anything but whatever.

I had walked out on them the previous day and they did not seem to care much i guess because this is such a hard car to find and they are selling like crazy. They wanted $3900 Total out of pocket and $478 a month plus tax. The next day i came in i got them down to $3550 total out of pocket and $470 a month plus tax which came out to $498.12 a month. This is all based on a 12k 36month lease. Overall im happy that i was able to get the car but i wish they would have cut me a better deal i still feel like i over payed. i'm aware that this is a "Roll Call" thread so if anyone has any comments just PM me, thanks.

Default Is 250 Awd

Hi-

This is my first post, although I've been lurking for awhile.

I had my 250 AWD delivered to my house by Stevinson Lexus yesterday. Got it for $1000 under sticker. No pics yet, although my most recent 2 cars are pictured in my gallery. This is my first Japanese car ever (previously a Porsche/Audi purist). I'm moving from a 1999 Boxster since I really dislike spinning out every 5 minutes in the snow

So far I'm impressed, although I feel like I'm riding uncomfortably high up even though I have the seat set as low as it'll go. Nav is amazing. Stock stereo is very nice, although the low end seems a little shallow compared to the Bose system in my A8.

I've been switching vehicles yearly for the past 10 years looking for "the perfect car". I hope this is it. But it probably isn't

1. IS 250
2. AWD
3. Black Onyx
4. 17s
5. No spoiler
6. Cashmere
7. Navigation and Premium package. Live in Estes Park, Co. Purchased from Stevinson Lexus in Denver.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Briareos

Default New IS 250 AWD is HOME

Got our new IS 250 AWD Thanksgiving eve. Wooooo Hooooo !!!!!!

IS 250 AWD
Smokey Granite Mica
Sterling Interior
NAV
Luxury Package
Everything else is stock.

Mulling the thought of spending $900+ for XM Radio.

After reading all the trash about how underpowered the 250 is, I had low expectations. Boy, am I ever surprised and pleased. It has plenty of get up and go.

Every time I try to add pix to this post using the Manage Attachments button, nothing happens. I''ve searched FAQ's and tried everying there (there is no 'browse' button below posts) with no luck. I'll keep trying, but it's more fun playing with the car !!!
