I doubt this would change the "feel" of the car that much - ECU adaptation is relatively subtle. I would get the car that "feels" better or keep looking.

You could try a transmission fluid drain and flush. Sounds like dirt has got into the solenoid/actuator. I believe the solenoids are inside the transmission but others can confirm.

Well, there's full retail price, regular discount online price, and CL discount price. They're switching to full retail?

Maybe a 225/55x18. Narrower is better but I wouldn't go with narrower and smaller.

The LS used dual fuel injection - both direct and port injection. So it probably won't have the same issues as the IS250 which has direct injection only.

I don't think so. Look at the edge of the console top and you'll see plain red painted plastic - just no wood photo finish after it curves down - dead giveaway.

In town, 15-20mpg depending on how gentle I drive. On the highway, its speed dependent - 30mpg at a steady 60, 28mpg at a steady 70 and 25mpg at 80-85. That's on premium gas.

Thanks, good to know. I have a buzzing from my front passenger door but I think it's the door panel, not the speaker - will check out the condition of the foam surround.

Yes, KBB had its uses as an information source but even that is much more limited now that they stopped providing invoice prices (because of auto manufacturers'/dealers' pressure, I'm sure).

Well, I guess you do have 50% more miles than I did, so the price may reflect that. Good luck, and may your control arm bushings fail catastrophically (so you get your money's worth)!

That's a bit steep. Try Kuni Lexus, or some other Lexus dealers in your state. Also, do NOT say anything about the control arms or cat - pre-existing conditions are not covered!
