  1. Thanks smooth1 ... Will let u know how it turns out.
  2. here you go smooth1 ... thanks for looking into this! now that i look into it closely, the main bumper didnt get scratched but rather the lower portion which I think is part of the ground effects kit. but here are the pics ...
  3. Hey guys ... messed up my front bumper on my IS250 today by overrunning the parking space. The bottom portion of the front bumper got caught on the curb and it left some very visible scratches almost all along the front bumper! :( any of you out there had the same experience? any idea how to get rid of this mess? do i need to replace the entire bumper?
  4. The IS is designed to be a sport/luxury vehicle. It is also a relatively small car, and as a result of those two points, you will feel more of the shift than you would in a larger luxury car. What did you drive, a Lincoln, or a Mercury? What model was it? The size, power, and suspension would make a big difference in the feedback you got from the car. Ford/Lincoln/Mercury vehicles have been notorious for having pretty mushy suspensions, with the exception of the Mustang, and maybe the new Mark and 500 platforms. That said, I have to also say that I don't feel the shifts in my '08 250 very muc
  5. Hey guys ... been a proud owner of a 2007 IS250 for the past 6 months or so. Love the car so far and am very happy overall. The car handles well and I find it reasonably responsive (as much as a 200hp car can be). One gripe I do have is that I have felt that the transmission shifts during acceleration is not as seemless and smooth that I would like it to be. You can almost physically feel the car changing gears as you push on the gas pedal. Drove a Lincoln Mercury the other week (rental while out of town on business) ... really felt it accelerate smoothly with no hesitency (although otherwise
  6. It amazes me that stuff like that MUST be ajusted by the dealer. GM cars, for example, have a dash knob that can adjust the light sensitivity. There's just no good reason they can't make some of those things driver adjusted--especially light sensitivity and auto shut off. man ... you folks are some of the laziest bloggers i have come across in this website! just press the damn lock key TWICE on the key fob and the lights will go off immediately! quit your whining like the Republicans! :P
  7. I read somewhere that tinted windows sometimes mess up the GPS signals. Is your IS tinted?
  8. I dont think you can physically steal the IS x50 (unless someone tows it) ... if someone breaks into the IS, the engine immobilzer activates, meaning your car engine shuts down ... hence rendering it useless. Am I correct in my understanding?
  9. hey guys ... it's time for my 15K miles scheduled maintanence and a couple of Lexus dealers in my area are quoting me approx. $280 for getting the scheduled maintanence done. Does this quote sound reasonable? Or should I opt for just changing the oil and filters and ignore the other minor areas that Lexus recommends looking into while taking the car in for the scheduled maintanence? Any input would be appreciated!
  10. attached is a picture from the Lexus website of the 18" rims ... my 17" have 10 spokes, while - if i can count right - the 18" have 15 spokes! i personally like the 18"s for its darker shade ... anyway i can change the colors besides having to spray paint them? B) That's the accessory wheel 18-in ISP Mode alloy wheels with 18-in tires http://www.lexus.com/models/IS/accessories...ls_w-Tires.html There are also the G-Spider wheels http://www.lexus.com/models/IS/accessories...w-Tires_IS.html But the wheels Smooth1 has pictured are the factory optional 18 inch wheels. Ah! lesson lea

B) well, attached is a picture of what is printed on the side of my tire: and here is a pic of the 10 spoke rim: those definately 18's yes? haha! that was quick! agreed .... those are 18"s! anyway, i can change my 17"s shade to a darker tone?

  13. nice one! but correct me if I am wrong ... but your rims look like they are the standard 17" ... The spokes look like the 18's that I came on mine. the spokes on my IS250 looks exactly the same as the ones on Scorpios ... and mine are no 18"s
