I don't know if this has been asked before, so I'm sorry if it has.
O.K, if the IS was sold here as the Toyota Alteza meaning no Lexus model but had the same IS engine, features, etc would u have bought/considered this car??

yeah I would still buy it if its the same price

the word Lexus doesn't mean crap to me. I care more about the styling, comfort, and reliability.

it wouldn't matter to me neither. i have a "toyota" supra...so i wouldn't mind a "toyota" altezza either. although, i'd rather go to a "lexus" dealership rather than a "toyota" dealership. the ppl at the lexus dealership seem much more helpful and personable.

Very true, lexus dealers have great service. Defnintely better than a toyota one. But other than that the name doesnt mean anything to me.

i'd actually prefer the name altezza though.. i dunno.. it has a better ring to it... sounds more attractive to me than IS..

actually thinking about getting rid of my lexus badge and replacing it with the "altezza" that they have in japan.. along with the grille of course..

i just think that since altezza was the name it was born with.. altezza it shall be called...

possibly but lexus has to stick with their naming structure, just like how honda is changing "integra" ot something else to match the rest of acura's lineup
