Maybe it's an issue with remapping my ECU?

I have the Carfax history of my vehicle and it was sold in CA and driven in TX before coming here to CO a few years ago.

Does it need to be remapped...

Well I just got back to Denver and car feels sluggish again. It was nice driving around the east coast at or near sea level. Car was way more responsive. A simple tap of my gas pedal and it went and...

Elevation effect on cars

I live in Denver at 5200 feet and routinely drive to the mountains at 7000-10000 feet. Car is pretty sluggish.

Driving cross...

Not a big fan of the 3IS styling especially that grill. We'll see what Lexus does with the 4IS

I think I will save up for a lower mileage newer 2IS, maybe 2011+

Quick question. I have the Joe Z intake and FStop rear sway bars on my 2008 IS250. These should be interchangeable with a 2007 or 2008 IS350 correct?

And same with wheels. My 2008 model OEM wheels...

KBB in good condition is around $12,500 so can expect $10K offer.

Yeah that would be a non-starter. May just drop by CarMax to see what they quote me. Thanks

Yeah for me not looking at that much more. I would hopefully get some money back from trade in ($3-$4K). With a $15K purchase, loan would be around $11-$12K
