Hey guys, I'm new here and want some advice on whether or not I should buy a 2006 Lexus IS350. It has 65,000 miles and costs $19,000. This will be the first car I'll own and my parents are buying it for me but I can't decide between this or a 2004 BMW 545i for the same price with 5,000 more miles. So you guys think I should buy it? Also, does maintenance cost a lot and is 65,000 miles on it too much? Thanks for your help! :)

I love this type of posts. Since this is a LEXUS forum...hhmmm...let me answer the obvious, buy the Lexus IS350.

Why don't you post this on a BMW forum too and then tally up the results. ;)

depends, u trying to raise a family or u trying to have some fun...the is350 is pretty much a 2 seater considering theres no room in the back, which was a plus for me coming from a honda accord where eveyone wants a ride, to no one wants a ride cuz theres no room, the 545 is also gona a pain to maintain, probably gona have problems but depends on the car ofcourse (majority of them have problems), go test drive them and see how u like them, they are completely different cars, IMHO since this is ur first car, i say lease a car, i messed up my honda pretty bad in the 3 years i owned it, and when i returned it to the dealership, i did over 1100 dollars worth of damage to the car...which in the end i paid nothing cuz it was covered in the contract, i was gona get a is250 for my first car, sooo happy i didnt

I've had so many problems with a brand new BMW, and not one with a used Lexus (I had a 2005 ES 330) so my recommendation is of course the Lexus
