I got mine from IRA Lexus in Danvers (North Shore). They are getting two automatics next week. I have already put money down on the gray one with an MSRP of appx $34,500 (everything except the nav). The other car that is going to be arriving will be with the same options, but in black.
I can give you the number of my sales guy if you want. That dealership is really nice (free soda/food) and they even let me test drive it by mysef
It is definately a sweet ride and I would recommend that dealership to anyone.
Just went to JM Lexus and saw a bunch of 5-speed IS300's. May be too much of a drive for you guys up north, but I know they sell all over the US. My friend is in sales if anyone needs a name. Don't know how I feel about the gold, but the silver is veerry nice
Ira Lexus is great. Both the sales and service teams. Matt Leonard works in the parts department. He also owns an IS300 with some modifications. He has saved me money on parts. He is also a dealer for L-Sportline and RMM. Check him out if you are in the area or if you have any questions.
I've emailed Bayridge Lexus(same owner as Manhattan Lexus) for a test drive the 5speed, they said going to be the end of August to have them in showroom.
Maybe you could try Lexus of Englewood, great sales, and service there.. i really want to have a test drive so bad...
