I don't think 95% of the population could justify anything above $30K other than for badge status. The magazines all review cars going around race tracks and cones. How often does someone stuck...

Using the A4 CVT FWD as the comparison point is ludicrous. That's their bottom end model used for newspaper advertisements.

The complaints of turbo lag also make me wonder if the reviewer knows...

Well, I first would not consider any Chrysler or Government Motor car to begin with. But if I did (which I won't), it'd have to be a heavily subsidized lease. The resale value of these are atrocious....

Is that 47k out the door with tax? If so, good deal I think.

72 month financing is never a good deal. That puts like another $6500 on the price of the car.

What other cars did you crossshop and why did you go with the IS350?

For those who have already purchased the new IS 350, what other vehicles did you cross shop, and why did you decide on the Lexus?


Maybe your responses will help me make a damn decision already!...

Bump to this thread. Any insights on VGRS and what it actually does?

Unfortunately, this small upgrade seems to be bundled with the upgraded stereo, effectively making this a $1600 option.

I have now had three dealers come in with email quotes of around $450 over invoice. No negotiation required. I imagine they would go even lower if you were in the mood to chisel them a bit.
