He sent me this email ....


"I just got some information in on the SportCross. I am putting it in the mail today to you so you should have it early next week. Hope this booklet will provide you with some good information."

I'd like to get four of those 17x7.5 rear wheels from the SportCross for my IS. We should've had those (with 225 tires) from the beginning.

is it possible the wagon is being delay until october/november because it will be awd like the gita?

I don't think AWD is a possibility at this point. Perhaps Lexus will wait to see how consumers respond to the SportCross before offering an AWD option.

If there is a delay for the SportCross until Oct/Nov, maybe Toyota/Lexus is shifting most of their initial SportCrosses to Europe before offering them in the U.S.

My salesperson gave me the SportCross brochure when I went in for 1K service. I've scanned in the pages, but am still in process of uploading (56K dial up
) them to my Yahoo! Album. I'll post links when I'm done. Has it been pointed out that there ARE NOT fog lamps on the SportCross?

Yeah, I already know that the JDM Gita has AWD, but I'm saying that the U.S. and Euro versions won't get AWD. Besides, the AWD Gita is mated to a 4-speed tranny...

4 speed ain't no biggie, have you ever driven an auto supra turbo, 4 speeds are alright!

Huh? The booklet says on page 6 that it has integrated halogen fog lamps.
