I think 2mm is the absolute minimum - I agree that you should just go ahead and replace now. If the rotors don't have runout (uneven surface) or gouges, and haven't been giving you problems...

Geez - with all due respect - just watch autotrader and Carmax.com - you'll get a great idea of what the market is. Per your posts, you're not even close to pulling the trigger.

Just shy of 12k - vehicle was immaculate - we just traded on the 12th and I think the dealer has sold it already. We really loved the car but wanted to go back to the smaller size IS.

Just a thought - safely shipping a car can get very expensive, especially coast to coast - it can run a couple grand.

That's the other way to go - if you have an indie shop, it will be an easy job to do - maybe an hour or so. It's up to you whether to machine the rotors or not - if you've got quality rotors and...

If you have an f-sport, it's got the performance pads - composition is geared to increased friction and better bite which equates to less life depending on your driving style. That said - no way...

They will. Two year 30% depreciation will put them easily in the mid thirties or less. Of course, you will have to be ok with 30k miles or so (still a very young vehicle mileage-wise).

Just traded our 2013 ES350 that we paid $37k for 18 months ago (sticker was $42k). We got $31.5k for it along with a 14% discount on the new IS350 we traded for. These cars hold their values very...

Don't think anyone's getting 0w20 TGMO for a buck a quart unless it's stolen and it's an under the table deal - most are paying $5-6 a quart

Yeah, the 2015 only has a couple new features that we aren't really that concerned with and this will only be a 2 year car for us, so going with a 2014 made the negotiation process much easier.

Ninoblack8 is in NY so Longo is probably not practical. I will say that when I was trying to land a deal on a remaining 2014 last week, Longo's take it or leave it quote was $2500 more than what I...

You do realize you responded to a post that was made in July 2013 (15 months ago) when the new IS was just hitting the dealerships and the deals were probably not as good as they are now, right?

Sounds like a solid deal. Is this a 2014? I would recommend trying to get the money factor reduced to .00085. That's what it should be if your credit score is anywhere near 700. This will reduce your...

Not sure the market has gotten that good yet on 2015 350 F-sports - and who knows what it is in NJ right now. That said, we'd need all the other details of the deal to make an accurate judgement.

You're in a predicament - I think you will be disappointed either way you go. If you like the 350 and the F-Sport, anything short of both will not do the trick (my opinion).

For sure - but my wife had 2 IS's before the ES and she missed the nimbleness and sportiness - the ES is a great car but this F-Sport is awesome - she loves it.

Thanks moose!
