Hey guys, not sure if you know or not, but I'm a service advisor for Lexus of London (London, Ontario, Canada). This morning we got three of the new IS' in; an IS 250 RWD (auto), and IS250 AWD (auto) and an IS 350 (auto of course). Two were gun metal and the other was deep blue, very nice. The IS 250 AWD has accelleration very similare to that of the out going model, and is fairly well behaved (it rained all day here). But the IS 350 is pretty fun to drive, and I was amazed to see that it is infact possible to turn the traction control off! And no it does not turn back on on it's own! Anyways, we got these cars in ahead of schedule because we are having an official launch party at Club Pheonix here in London, so if any of you are in London tomorrow night (October 13, 2005) head to Club Pheonix and ask for Brad Van Bakel, and I will see to it that you get in! Collective Soul is playing as well as some local tallent! I am going to try and take some pictures so keep your eyes peeled!
