    IS 250
  1. I have the standard 18inch summer tires on my is 250 rwd right now and was thinking of getting some winter or all season tires. I live in Seattle so am more concerned about wet pavement than snow (but i do live near a hilly area) so do you guys think I can get by with just changing my 2 rear tires to all-season or winter and leave the front tires stock? Or is it better if I change all 4 tires? Any recommendations on which brand/model to get? Thanks
  2. What do you guys recommended I use to condition the leather for the IS? Is it harmful to use "Armour All" products on the leather? I think the leather in the IS is a thinner type of leather compared to the thicker kinds found in other vehicles.
  3. I live in the Washington area and wondering if anyone has had the 3M clear coating installed onto their vehicle. The Lexus dealership is offering the service but I know I can get more coverage for a better deal after market. (they are charging me $1000 for headlights, front bumber and hood) Has anyone had it done in Seattle? Where to go or where not to go? Thanks
  4. Wife & I also special ordered an IS250 with 6 speed manual tranz & sports package We too were quoted 90 days .. we actually had to wait about 150 days (almost 5 months) We missed the special order cut off - all special orders are placed at the end of the month. We ordered last week of Jan and missed the Jan ordering (it's 3rd week of month) so our order did not go in till feb. Call the dealer and politely ask for the customer service manager. He/She sould be able to e mail Lexus corporate and get an allocation date or at lease more info than the sales person has. Once allocated, y

  8. Hey Guys, I live in Washington state and had ordered a new IS 250 with Sports Pkg 3/28/06. Originally, the dealer said it would take at least 60-90 days to get the vehicle because it was a special order. Today, my sales person emailed me and said that they still dont have sight on the arrival date of the car. Is this normal?? How long did you guys needed to wait for a specific color/pkg that was not available at the lot? eager and annoyed
  9. It all depends on where you live.... got to Lexus.com and click on built your own.... try diffrent zip codes... like for example.. up here in Mass... you can get the 250 with the ML package.... but in LA... no dice.... They have the option on lexus.com but it looks like they are not offering the Lux for the 250 RWD right now.... What I find a little ironic is... ML is located in Mass... but you can not get the ML package on any IS... :cries: It all depends on where you live.... got to Lexus.com and click on built your own.... try diffrent zip codes... like for example.. up her
  10. I am a pharmacist living in rainy Seattle. I just purchased a tungsten pearl IS 250 with sports package. My other vehicle is a 93' Acura Integra.
  11. I just recently bought an IS 250 from the dealership in Bellevue. It is currently on order, hopefully I wont experience the same problems. sorry about the scratches
  12. Ordered IS 250 with Sports Package today. Dealership said it will take at least 60 days...boo.
  13. Best of luck to you Scott! We're in the same area (CT here) and the stock was sparse, to say the least. They ended up getting me my second choice, from a dealerhsip in NY. In retrospect, I'm glad, it turned out to be a most-excellent color (the red)! If they seem to have trouble finding you a car, you can "help them" along as I did, hit http://www.autotrader.com/ and search for your car yourself! Do the power search, put in the car, 2006, etc. and see what shows up... Mike I find it difficult to tell the difference between Tungsten Pearl and Glacier Frost Mica. Does anybody have actual
  14. Im in the midst of negotiations with the Lexus dealership in Washington state. Im interested in the IS 250 with Sports Package (Im not too fond of the woodgrain trim and would much prefer the HID, AFS, tighter suspension and larger wheels) Has anyone else opted for this option? - comments? I want to get this vehicle in Breakwater Blue Metallic but unfortunately have not actually seen this color in real life. Does anyone have pics? The dealership says they have to special order this vehicle so will have to charge me MSRP ~ $35,639 (including - accessory package/sports package/ scratch/den
