I just bought a used 2007 IS250 (26K miles), and have fallen in love:loveit:! The car is absolutely beautiful and in exellent condition, black on black, 18" wheels. However, I have noticed that when i'm driving and the sun/moon roof is open there is a really loud wind noise (it also makes a little wind noise when its closed). Am I crazy, or is the noise too loud? Also, there are a few minor paint chips on the front of the car. Can I buy some touch-up paint and fix myself, or should I just break down and take it to the professionals?

Yeah, it should not be that loud. It if makes noise when closed it sounds like there is a problem.

On the other hand, it is not suppose to be fully open. The quietest position is selected at the "O" position on the dial.

try opening the dial to the "o" rather than all the way, and see if that helps.

As everyone have been saying, it should not be too loud. I would recommend bringing it to a dealer if YOU think the noise is too loud and see what they have to say. As for the paint chips, there is a thread here by SupraMan1784 showing us how to remove paint chips using Dr. ColorChip. Heres the link to it. http://my.is/forums/f171/dr-colorchip-diy-review-pics-383566/
