    When you say "tell US about it" who is sitting next to you.
    On the other hand you do know that WE think that this thread is silly?

    AFAIK he's referring to 'us' as the other forum members.

    No, I don't however my friends mom has the GX470, one of my neighbors has the old style IS 300, and another neighbor has the rare LX 450 (not LX470).

    My mom's friend has one of the first RX300s, for some reason it has a really tiny gas tank (they later made them bigger), but she says she constantly has to fill the car up with gas.

    My friends mom's GX470 is pretty nice in the inside, overall though I don't think its that special, I would rather have a german car. It has a crappy air suspension too, it doesn't really go up or down that much as compared to other SUVs with it. However, it is comfortable.

    i think this is someone doing market research for lexus.
    if not, i'm sorry, but his username, combined with this being his 3rd post, suggests that.
    i don't mean to insult you if this isn't true, lexus. :eek:

    Guys, calm down...who cares? If the topic interests you, reply, if not, don't.
    I have a 1992 Lexsus SC230. I love it, but it's had its share of problems...stalling on the expressway is not cool. Although if you do work for Lexsus, could you hook me up with a cherry-red Lexsus SC430 hard-top convertible? :)

    My mom as a '00 RX300. It's a very nice car, and but has had it's share of non toyotaish problems. AWD Trans went, had to be replaced, now the alternator isn't working and it keeps dying. And also has a small tank as previously mentioned. All that being said, it's still a very nice car. Reccomended.

    Oh I so agree, but come on, what's the deal with not offering a manual option on a sports car like that, even if it is a luxury sports car? It's the only reason I didn't end up getting one the last time I was getting a new car. :(

    I didn't know there was no manual option...that's BS.

    If I was in the market for a sports car I'd get a Z4 Coupe, standard of course. :D

    But at least the IS does have the option of manual-- dunno if you have to special order it though.

    IS350 here. A great car, I love everything about it. It is very quick, handles like it is on rails (most toyota/lexus cars do), and is very comfortable. The navigation is very nice and the leg room in the back is ample. A very nice "sporty" luxury car. The only that that really sucks is that it gets on average 19 MPG. I love it though.

    ^^Meh, the IS is the only one that appeals to me. That, and the hardtop convertible, but I imagine a lot of old rich guys driving it.
