Default Who drives 3IS?

Just for fun I'm curious what type of person drives Lexus 3IS. Reply with below information if you want to participate. All of these are optional so answer the ones you feel comfortable with.

- Color & Style (IS250 RWD / IS250 AWD / IS350 RWD / IS350 AWD)
- If you own F-Sport would you have added Luxury package for say $2k - $3k?
- Reason you choose what you drive.
- Gender & Age
- Occupation & Income ($0 - $50k / $51k - $100k / $101k - $150k / $151k - $200k / $200k+)

Thank you.

How do you do it anonymously?

Please feel free to skip any information you don't feel comfortable giving.

I don't think it's appropriate to ask these kinds of questions especially income and previous cars. Someone can certainly use this info to reset banks passwords etc..,.

I'll play.


- Style IS250 AWD F-Sport
- Exterior & Interior Color Obsidian and black
- Packages you got Plus blind spot monitor and cross-traffic alert, Navigation, Cargo net, Trunk mat, and Wheel locks
- If you own F-Sport would you have added Luxury package for say $2k - $3k No
- Gender Male
- Age 40
- Single or Married Married
- Occupation Digital marketing
- Salary $101k - $150k
- Home Rent (but buying within 6 months)
- City & State you live in Denver, Colorado
- Previous Vehicle 2009 Lexus IS 250 AWD
- Purchased or Leased Leased
- Reason you choose this I chose the 2009 because I preferred the overall appearance. I considered BMW 3, Mercedes C, and Infiniti G before deciding I just liked the Lexus better. The redesign even more so.
- How long you intend to keep At least three years. If enough additional options are there in 2016, I'll lease a new one, otherwise I'll buy out my 2014.

LOL! They'd have to know a lot more info.

Let me simplify this! Just provide whatever you are comfortable with.

Go ahead dojoman, see if you can access my bank accounts. Come on, it's not like you're being asked your mother's maiden name.

I was expecting 30 and 40 year olds with $100k+ income but was wondering how many 20 something year olds with < $50k. Lexus seems to market to that age group but I just don't see how they can afford a $50k car.

I dont think you will find anyone who makes < $50k here unless they have family money.

I think 1 more question should be asked, "How much did you pay for your IS out the door."

I'm 28, and make a six figure income.

Sounds like the young kids are loving this car. Maybe I should get a different car. Still deciding.

That's impressive. I didn't make that kind of money until my 30s. What is that you do?

There is another thread about price.
http://www.clublexus.com/forums/is-t...250-350-a.html

Also OTD price comparison isn't valid since tax rates vary.
