Hi my name is Chris, I am 26 and I live in North Springfield, in Northern Virginia. I just bought my first Lexus, a 2002 Red IS 300. I am looking to do some performance upgrades to the car, ie. turbo or supercharger, intake , intercooler, exhaust and maybe a body kit and rims. So I am hoping to meet other local IS owners in the DC Metro/NOVA area who have done some or all of the above to get their opinions and input. Possible buy some used parts off of people, and join a local IS or Lexus club. I am an Network Administrator for a small software company in Fairfax, VA. I also own two Jeeps one of which has been modified and is now my trail only vehicle.

Hi, I work for the R&D of the largest import car maker, my wife works for the federal government. We bought the ES 330 when we got married two years ago and we have a 97' Nissan Sentra which will be replaced with the IS 350 soon (finally got her approval after two years of struggles). We live in LA.

What year was the E55?

and driving a IS250 and your hubby drives a spur... is like your hubby driving a IS350 and your driving a KIA without A/c and a 5 speed with a AM/FM TAPE!!

I love my IS350... BUT... If I had a Spur in my yard... my poor IS would hardly see any road time.... :)

What year was the E55?

It was a 2005. We were having problems with it, actually. The first one was all four tires, the sidewalls split. Mercedes replaced them, all while messing up our rims, then refused to fix that. The A/C was faulty. Now there's a recall on the brakes failing, which my husband already experienced. It was time to get rid of it.

Dang lambobaby, why didn't you go for the IS 350? JW

BTW, any pics of the Bentley?

The dealer didn't have the IS350, and I didn't know about it at the same. We bought it the first weekend it came out, and I was desperate to get rid of my BMW!

I'll try and post pics of the Bentley if I can figure it out, lol!

Yes, there was a Lambo. A 2006 Gallardo, to be exact. I have pics of that, as well, if you're interested....

How much can you get off MSRP on one of them? How much is payments?

If you're asking me, it was about the same as the Lambo, actually. About $180-. No reductions off MSRP. It's a new car this year, and selling very well. I don't know the payments. It's my husband's car, so he takes care of that.

I just tried attaching a pic, and it didn't do it. I'll do some investigating and figure out how to attach....
