Half the time my contacts don't transfer when I start the car. Eventually during the ride they transfer but then the car losses and regains them multiple times during the ride. Pretty frustrating...

I found the same thing. The suspension with the lower profile tires rides better than the car with the higher profile tires. I was really surprised. I really noticed the difference when going over RR...

Processing and handling? I think those two phony charges only exist in TV commercials at 3:00 in the morning.

But wait! We'll double your order.........just pay processing and handling!

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.

If your referring to my post; you misunderstood me. I think the offer they made you on the Merc is a little on the low side because you have the AMG package. But you need to understand the dealers...

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...

I guess I'll just leave them on. They're really not that noticeable until you get close to the car.

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.

IS rear door clear stone guards

This question is for those that have removed them. Do you regret doing so?

These clear appliques didn't bother me when I had an Obsidian IS but on my SLM I think they really stand out and detract...

Loved the look of SLM under the showroom floor lights. Once I drove it home I started to think that the silver looked a little washed out under normal day light. I've grown to love the SLM again...

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.

In tight city traffic the 250 might actually be ok. The 250 has an overly aggressive 1st gear. It has a high 1st gear throttle setting so it can jump from a stop sign or red light. The big issue with...

I may get tired of the 350 and want to upgrade but it's unlikely that I'll despise it like the 250. The 350 just does everything correctly. It's a competent car on the road.

I thought I was the only one frustrated by this. No air for the fist ten seconds then another 30-40 seconds before it gets cold. Plus there are hot spots with no air movement up around your head area...
