Hi everyone! My first post I thought should be this one. Proud owner of a 2007 RX350 with the premium package in Flint Micra. I will try to get some pictures up soon.

Thanks!

I use to drive a Honda Accord 1994. The Honda was a dream car. Then I broadend my horizons and the Lexus was my ultimate dream car. Love it. Now my husband has jumped on the wagon he wants a 430.

This is the most beautiful picture of the car so far I have seen in this forum (good job). The silver color is awesome. I remember that I posted my opinion in color selection some time ago. This picture indicates that I made the right choice of Silver color with gray interior (also see the pretty interior picture above - gray with black).

Mookiekong and all:

Do you notice that the engine is not as quite as expected for a $40,000 car? When accelarating the speed (even at very low speed and lightly press the gas pedal), you will hear the engin is working somewhat hard.

I think the engine is just a bit louder than some may have expected. I don't think it is working hard at all though. This is the fastest Lexus SUV in the lineup and among the fastest V6 SUV out there. The engine has plenty of power. It could be just a notch quieter but have you driven any other SUVs out there? My wife and I drove the X5 and Cayenne and FX45 before purchasing the RX350. The RX350 is way quieter than all of those. The RX350 is especially quiet once you are cruising and not accelerating. Also, the engine doesnt get very loud under heavy throttle like it does in many cars.

Default Semi-impulse buy

I went to the dealer to look at the RX350 to find out what the options were and so forth...on Saturday, 30 December 2006. I drove one home that evening. Savannah Metallic, ivory leather interior, premium plus option package, nav system, 18 inch wheels (which I could have done without), XM radio, trailer hitch. Traded in a 2001 RX300 I'd bought new in November 2000.

Damn, but it's nice...

The extra power is noticeable. I was driving home down a rural highway, and went to pass a semi and another car (who'd passed me just as I was getting ready to pull out). Romped on the power, got past both, looked down to see the speedometer at 100 MPH and climbing - and it wasn't breathing hard. The RX300 would have been struggling at 90.

The engine is no noisier than the RX300 was, and the rest of the car is quieter (on the test drive, my roommate said "they started with quiet and took the noise out"). The shorter turning radius is nice, too.

Now, if I can just figure out how to eject the DVD from the nav system so I can poke around at it.

I'd post a picture, but it's way too cold to go outside in my Tron Guy costume. Yes, that's me.

thanks for sharing all the pics! My family has a 2007 RX 350 and I'm planning on getting my own. Don't know if I'll get the '08 or hold out for the '09 though. The pictures have definitely made it clear that I want the flint mica though! I pretty much just see silver (and a few black) around here!

Default RX350 in Tx

Picked up my 08 Crystal White RX350 about a week ago.

Decided against the Nav option -- didn't feel it was worth the investment for how I plan to use this vehicle.

It was a toss up between the 350 and an SRX -- the 350 won hands down.

Only have about 500 miles on it and am enjoying it very much.

One question though - what octane fuel is generally being used and why?

Just brought home a 08 RX350. White with tan interior. Skipped the NAV as I have no need for it. 170 miles so far!
