There are a few of these at my local dealer. They apply the film at the port like many accessories, for example, the rear bumper appliqué. The film they use is not the best. The white IS they have at...

Well I hope the mpg gets better, I've had my IS350 F-Sport AWD for a couple weeks now and only got 17 mpg for the tank and that was in Eco mode the entire time and babying it. How is it possible it...

Well I ended up leasing the IS350. For me is was more about economics than anything since it is just a daily driver to me. However, after driving it for a week I agree the seats are uncomfortable,...

GS leases are not good right now because the residuals are not good although probably more realistic. I wanted to get a BMW 3 series or Audi S3 and as much as I liked them, their lease deals weren't...

It's seems like all cars in this price range have trade offs. when I looked at the BMW 328 you had to get the parking sensor package for rear view camera. Then for blind spot monitors you needed the...

I was looking at both of these cars as well and it is really annoying that a $50k car doesn't have memory seats and parking sensors but then has radar cruise control which is typically a higher...

My GX is a pig but I like it. More truck like and pretty ugly but it can handle anything I like the X5M's, SRTs and Cayennes for a more sporty and fast ride. We thought about trading ours in but...

The ET is what it is, I'm more surprised at the low trap speed. I would have thought it would be 100 mph.

Yeah I guess it evens out somehow since we don't pay personal property taxes so I can't complain too much. It's just frustrating when I see such low lease payments in other states and the fact that...

It isn't fair to say that unless you know how his state charges for taxes on a lease. That payment is near impossible in my state because MD charges full 6% tax up front on the sales price of the car...

I did drive them back to back along with the c300 and S3. I liked the S3 best, it was the quickest and most fun. I put both the 328 and the 350 in comparable sport + mode and I just felt the road...

I seem to keep coming back to Lexus. Im looking at a $49k 328ix and a $51k IS350 Fsport AWD and the monthly for each are $600 and $550, respectively with the same terms. Not sure the 328 is worth...

He said power was overrated which to some degree it is. But wouldn't you say the amount of power for a 328 and a IS350 would both be sufficient? Some here make it seem like the 328 is a dog when in...

Just curious, did you go with the IS200T or IS300? If you went for the 350 would the same hold true for getting the 350 over the lower models?

I'm considering both as well. At first I really like the Audi S3 since it is in the $50k mark with both of these cars but the wife ruled it out because it was too rough. So we test drove the 328ix...

I bet you had equity or maybe they don't have a big loss by doing that. They are taking a $4k loss on my car so I bet they wouldn't do it for me.
