    The IS 350 sucks because it is reliable for people who are used to constant repairs and furthering a relationship with a repair shop that aspect of car ownership will be greatly missed.

    I'd just get the 250 but either way they are great cars.

    Wife has an IS 350 and we both love it. I usually drive it with the pwr button on for better throttle response. The seats are ungodly comfortable and the Mark Levinson stereo is fantastic.

    I've heard they are a little too slow, I don't have to have a manual so tiptronic will do for me.

    All cars and trucks are girl's cars and trucks respectively. If you don't drive an M1A2 Abrom's tank with the head of a vanquished enemy on a stick coming off your tank then shut the fuck up.

    I am telling myself not to get another RWD here in Jersey, but my IS300 is getting a bit old :hs: Will probably go for 250AWD or 350 this summer.

    He has a huge pickup truck so disregard. That alone brings up some compensation issues.

    yea used IS350s have held their value so well; i'd almost rather get a brand new one and not have to worry about potential previos owner negelect.

    on theother hand, if you can find a certified pre-owned you'd be getting a bawler ass warranty on a cheaper car thats probably fine anyway (being that its a lexus)
