Master...so the 2002 has arrived at Fremont Lexus? Maybe I gotta go take a look myself over the weekend.


So what kind of option is in the white IS that you took pics from? I see it doesn't have NAV. Did you ask them about price?

I thought the IS300 MPG for automatic is 18/23. The sticker says 18/25 MPG..Is this a stick car or did they just improved the fuel efficiency???

Hey Master, looks like the center console is still gray and black. Is that true?

The lighting is playing tricks. The console materials are made of different textures (rough vs. smooth), so it appears that the dash looks the same as the 2001's.

IS300GTE : i do kinda think they are slightly more gray....but i couldn't really tell. if it is tinted it's a VERY VERY little more dark.

lex300: yea the dash colors are different. it's grey now instead of the kinda silverish thing like before. but the texture is the same.

YisSerl: it just had the escaine and auto option

cdm2: i was wondering the same thing haha

i think the sticker price on that car was 33k i think...i forgot

The 2002 is 25 on the highway vs. 23 for the 2001. I'm wondering how they got the extra 2 MPG.

Probably slightly different engine tuning (due to updated ECU?).

yeah, but even 25 on the highway still sucks!

I have always like the "SHELBY" stripes on blue. I wish I waited for that one. Well see how the '02 will hang with the '01
