I have not seen this posted anywhere so sorry if this is old news. I got a voicemail from my Lexus sales gal last week stating that she had some updates for me. I had placed my deposit on the new IS350 at the beginning of the year. I finally met with her today and she told me the IS250 is still slated for an October release but that the IS350 would not be released until 3 or more months after the IS250 was released. Im kinda bummed about this but I guess it will give me a chance to look at the interior/exterior colors before placing my final order.
