Default Farwell Lexus for now...

It was my first Lexus but sure won;t be my last. Bought my 2IS 2 exactly 2 years ago. I always regretted of not getting the 350.
I found myself frustrated with the power if my 250 everyday altho they were so many things I enjoyed about this car.
Anyway, few weeks ago I got into a very minor crash and that made up my decision to look into something that'll made me happy and so I did.
Traded up my baby 2 days ago and picked up my first Porsche.
Words cannot describe how this car handles. I thought my 2IS handles well.
The power is just phenomenal and it's not even the S model.
ALso the build quality is like a tank. 2IS was so flimsy and cheap.
I'll consider coming back to Lexus for sure but I'll get into RC probably.
Thank you CLub Lexus for this amazing group. I learned so much and everyone is beyond amazing here.






and the "new" one....

Nice Boxster, congrats. Handling is nearly perfectly balanced in those cars

What year is that one? (I owned a 2004 Boxster S before my current IS350.)

Thank you
It's a 2009 with PDK. I read a lot about the IMS problems that were solved with 2009 before deciding.

That's because new engines in 2009's don't have an IMS to fail. Camshafts are driven directly off crankshaft.

I'm still considering a 911 later.
