After 7 years as a multiple IS owner, the time has finally come to part from Lexus. I wanted to stick with Lexus, but the lack of manual transmission in anything aside from the 250 RWD has forced me to stray to BMW. I ordered my 335xi yesterday. I would have no problems trading the IS in, but thought perhaps someone here would enjoy it better than the BMW dealer....

Details on the Car:

2002 Red IS300, 5 speed manual, Limited Slip rear end, Full Leather Black Heated seats and black interior. Navigation. Every option I could get for 2002. Car has winter tires on it right now (Mich Pilot Alpines) and brand new summer tires that will be included. 105,000 miles on it as of right now. I'm a salesguy, so driving is a part of the job, thus the higher milage. I purchased this car brand new from Lexus of Wayzata, MN. Car is located in Minneapolis, Minnesota. This car has one of the original Video Nav devices. The navigation screen can be changed from Nav to broadcast TV and the TV can be watched at any time, even while the car is driving. Also have a DVD player for it, or you can use the Aux inputs to connect and Xbox or Playstation or whatever.

My car has voice ACTIVATED navigation also, just like the newer version. I had to order a plug in from Japan that adds a factory button you press to be able to say the command and say what you want to do, also control the stereo. This is all factory stuff, but no one has it. There is a vehicle movement over-ride also, so you can run the navigation while the car is moving. Also have a remote for the nav with phone style keyboard, so you don't have to use the joystick on the console to run things and enter addresses... Has the latest Navigation Update disc I had to pay 300$ for also.

Windows are professionally tinted 30%.

The car is mint, you will not find a nicer one, and you will not find one with the extra options this one has. Car has had zero problems and never been in the shop. I take the best care of my vehicles and if you see this car you will know that.

If anyone is interested, let me know. I would like to get $14,750 because of all the extra stuff I am throwing in, but we can talk....

Let me know if you have any questions or need any more pictures and I'd be happy to help.

Thanks,

Justin

This is a steal for a very rare manual w/ Navi. Someone should pick it up right away. Good luck.

Last one. Some of you are asking about mods. The engine and suspension are 100% stock. The only mods are navigation/entertainment related. Fluid changes and service done at my Lexus dealer. Zero mechanical or electrical issues with car since I picked it up at 2 miles. It has been 100% reliable. Steering is tight as new, as is transmission. Drives like it did at 1000 miles. This is, hands down, the best, most reliable car I have ever owned, that's why I have kept it as long as I have.

Very nice car. Same color and options as my IS that I just picked up.

Good luck with the sale!

I hear you on the lack of a manual transmission bro...That fact may ultimately force me away from Lexus some day...at least for a daily driver. E-shift just doesn't do it for me. I HAVE to have 3 pedals and row thru the gears as a part of the driving experience.

BTW, VERY nice ride. I have an '05 AR, 5 speed myself. Love the car.

Bump for this beauty

I have a deposit on the car, so it's currently pending final sale. Thanks for the nice comments, I will bump this if the deal goes sour, but I don't expect any problems.

Sale went through perfect. Sorry to all of you that were interested, you missed out on a great car. Thanks to my.is. I enjoyed the forums and found a ton of great info on here. I'm sure I'll own a Lexus again someday, but for now it's BMW time.......
