Did the dealer actually say they wouldn't budge from MSRP on the AWD IS350. Because if you accept their trade in offer and negotiate the IS down to 43k you drive home with 19.5k in your pocket.

I think I'm going to stop at the dealer and ask that they replace them with a set that doesn't have mold spots growing underneath them. Looking at Sewell's website they cost $50 (retail) for the set...

Hmm, that's not what i wanted to hear. :sad: Well maybe comparing a 2IS to a 3IS is comparing apples to oranges...... hopefully. I'd really love to peel these eyesores off and not regret it.

The saving grace with the nav option is that your insurance is less than with a non nav car. Lexus nav has theft recovery GPS built in. Non nav cars don't.

Yes, the IS's run rich. All in the name of longer engine life and reliability. Lean would yield more power but would lessen longevity.
