In case anyone's confused, my mssg was intended for 32kcolors, so I guess the rest of you don't know what I was talking about. He was teasing me about being vegan and chosing the 350 (kills trees) vs. 400 (kills cows). Yes, I prefer killing trees to cows, plus by supporting cow farming, you support tree farming (do the research). I don't want to turn this into any debate, I was just explaining that I find it ironic that the 400h isn't offered with a cloth interior, but the 350 is. Doesn't make sense, environmentally speaking, but these companies never make sense. They think they know their target audience, but at least lexus is trying. If a true environmentialist has to buy a beast like this for practical reasons, vs. getting a Prius, they will pass on the leather and get the cloth. Again, my focus is on the company. It it not my intention to set off an environmental debate here. I just wanted an SUV that was more gentle on the enviroment, but the 400h wasn't an option because of the leather. It would be smarter for lexus to offer the cloth or leather option on the 400h, vs. the 350. You'd think with a more expensive car, you'd be MORE likely to customize it the way you want, not less. Sheesh! Anyway, I'm picking up the car tomorrow. I'm really excited and hopefully I can get a pic up and at least let other veggies/vegans know that lexus makes an suv with cloth seats, you just have to custom order it....My gosh I've been waiting a long time. Feels like Christmas Eve!!!!

veganbiker,

Yes, I was just teasing you. Be sure to post some photos when you get it. I'm really curious to see what it looks like inside with the cloth interior. Have fun picking up your car.

Hi 32k, I figured you were teasing. Ya never know with email, if ya know what I mean. I picked it up yesterday, and it is absolutely beautiful! The seats are a two tone. Once I get a chance, I'll load a pick. I'm probably the only person in the US with this interior:-) It's just great and the RX rides like a dream. Now I need some good tough canvas seat covers to protect it. I hope I can find something that's worthy of my new ride! Do you have a pic of your ride up? I'll browse around for it. Take Care!

I have joined the ranks of a proud Lexus RX350 owner. I just got it last night so I can't really post fully qualified opinions yet.

I just purchased my new RX350 yesterday. I'd been lurking for a few weeks, and appreciate all the help and advice that I found. I'm heading out this afternoon for a long road trip (my daughter's fall break), so I'll have ample opportunity to test everything out.

Hey AV,
Welcome. We have the same RX!! 6 days and counting since we made the purchase. My wife has graciously allowed me to drive it to work for 2 days and it makes LA traffic a bit more tolerable.

I noticed that when I was posting - I guess I could have just copied and pasted and saved a few keystrokes...
I was going back and forth on the colors for a while, but now I am certain I made the best choice - I think it really stands out and looks great.
I live outside of Memphis, and am taking off this afternoon for a week in Orlando (stopping about halfway both going down and coming back). The new RX will make the long trip much more tolerable. I plan to let my wife start out driving so I can play with the navigation for the first couple of hours. But then after that, it's all mine!

Greg, enjoy your trip! I don't think I'm biased when I say you definitely picked the best color...this is widely considered fact! (Okay, maybe slightly biased)

Well my wife just joined the club. She picked up a Black 07 RX 350 with the grey interior. It doesn't have the NAV but I wished we would have got it now.

Took delivery in June 2006 with 0 miles on it. Long commute puts me at 5900 miles or there about.
Personally, I believe this car screams; Beautiful Successful and Single Women!
Color:Breakwater Blue w/Cashmere Leather
Options:Prem w/Navi
Previous car was a 98 Camry XLE with 100K -- loved that car but it was due time for an upgrade.
I love my RX!
