e90 3series are definintely not growing on me. the new IS looks funny in those pictures. small wheels maybe are gettin dwarfed?

Its just not an IS anymore, it looks good but is just too far away from the old IS. Not my style at all and never will be.

pic is a 250. the 350 will have 18"s..

as for some of you not liking it. the previous model didn't sell for shit. so hopefully you are in the minority. we should sell twice if not more of these. we'll see i guess.

yeah, I was about to say that...those tiny ass rims look horrible on the 250, and it looks like a boat..

post up some 350 pictures when you get one! :p

It looks classier than the current IS. The stock 17"s look way too small on the car. Maybe the 18"s will look better on the 350. But anyway, thanks for the pics!

it actually looks much better in person... as has been said before a million times over.

the Silver is not the most flattering color..it looks hot in darker colors like the Matador Red and that Deep Indigo blue or whatever tis called!

Trov Notes: Buy whatever you want, how you want, when you want, it’s your money! :)



I think for most people the new IS will serve many purposes, i.e.
1.) There are some of us that simply do not want the headaches of boosting a car, attempting to find a competent place to service that ultra “needy” car, and the acceptance of the sheer upkeep! Oh ya, not to mention the addiction that continually grows once you experience & taste the wonderful world that is “BOOST!” :)

P.S. Option 1 is not bad by any means, I will probably be venturing down this road soon! Haha!!!!!

2.) Again, I also believe that the styling will grow on some people, most will undoubtedly be true diehard fans of the original! Put me in this category because I was hoping that Lexus would refine the current car, add some Jazz here, a little R&B there, and some Rock under the hood, but alas no factory 2JZ-GTE w/. v160 Getrag and a warranty.

3.) It’s all in the eyes of the beholder! Buy whatever you want and enjoy whatever you want! ;) All I can offer is my honest opinion, take it for what it’s worth to ya and make your own decision about what vehicle you decide to spend your hard earned dollar on.

I like it... Slap some wheels on there and swap out the suspension and you'll have a sweet ride.

How bout I give you $40000 for that IS250....NOT!
Hmmm, why give the guy a hard time? He's only sharing pics of
the first "display model" at his dealership.

:pissed:

It's not like he started a thread --> Who wants to buy the new IS
from me?

Your quite the people person. I am sharing pictures of the car. If our local give me a call and stop by. You have a huge chip on your shoulder about something.

An AWD IS 250 is 37k with nav $39k loaded (HID, memory seating and more).

Just got done driving it. A BIG thing about his car is it has the expensive leather that is in teh Ultra Luxury LS 430 (semi-ananline) and it's standard.

Is that an official price? I'm assuming you're talking about the Premium Luxury Plus package in that example or is it including something extra? $39K sounds like too much with that package + Nav. It's still missing ML and more, so it could probably hit $42K+ with everything.

yeah have no idea why someone would bust this guy's balls simply for posting some pics regardless if he is a sales person or not. LAME.

Anyway, thanks for posting the pics and good to see they will be showing up at dealerships soon.:)

As for the styling, I like it. I do prefer the look of the old IS but this one looks nice. Much better than the new GS...IMO that is
