Well, it’s been almost 4 years since I got my 2008 IS250, but with sadness (I LOVE my IS250) I decided to bring it back to Lexus to replace it for a new 2011 IS350 (thanks to my brother David as he just did that too… he is under “Slash300ZX” in this forum).
My old IS was my first Lexus, and I have to say I was very well satisfied with it
A new chapter has now opened where I have moved into the IS350 world. I have to say the power increase was my only reason to move up, but I am happy with the new color (old one was obsidian black, new one is smoky granite mica) and the Navigation System which I didn’t have before.
My only disappointment is that the Sound System (I did not get the ML) doesn’t come any longer with the Position Selection (P.Sel) option. I think that was the best option for my old IS250 as they managed to center the sound to the driver seat. I am still trying to figure out how to replicate that effect on the new IS350.
I was with my wife in her car when we passed by the Lexus dealer on Saturday just to find out options and prices, but since I know the manager, and based on the fact they had the IS350 on the color I wanted and with the options (more or less) I wanted, we took the new IS out and didn’t have to bring back the old one until the next day. So… I took some pics before leaving my house to bring back the old one.
I wish I could have kept both cars… lol
And one last view of my old friend
Thanks for looking.
