i got my 08' IS250 blk/blk + nav last month for 36,8 (out the door), I hit a 1000 miles driving to the rose bowl, and in the morning I did my free 1000k check up. The service guy said to bring in the car next month to get my brake pads replaced since they're squeeky and noisy. anyone notice that on their 08' IS?

I just drove my car past 3000 rpm for the first time on the 5 freeway, also using paddle shifters for the first time. It was a GREAT experience!! paddle shifters are sooo cool, and just hearing my car hit 5000rpm was cool too, I wanted to go a 100mph, but I didn't feel like getting pulled over. anyway, my car is sweet. what does a front bra look like on a black IS? how much is it and where do you recommend I get it done in LA? thanks everyone for these posts.

08 250 Manual

Brand new, 08 picked it up Sat 11/10 with 24 miles on her and in one week I have 1k miles... Back to the dealer this holiday week for the 1k service.

By the way, do they change the oil at 1K?

Obsidian and Tan interior, stick... Love it.

Now the question is - larger wheels? (17 stock) - and intake?

hi everyone :] i'm jen and this is my first post.

i drive a 2007 is250 rwd starfire pearl/tan interior. i got it just barely three months ago, and i've already racked up 9k miles =/

i have the all-weather rubber floormats, and they're great. if you like to drive barefoot like i do, then it feels good on the feet too lol. the only thing that sucks is that it only comes in black, and i have a tan interior =/ hopefully they have something new out.

the only other addition to my car is squash air freshener ahah.

and washing/waxing the car is so rewarding!! it's the best when you walk to your car at night and see it shine ever so nicely under the parking lot or street lights no matter how bad the lights are hahha.

1st-time Lex owner, newbie at this place
_______
07 is250 RWD Manual----
One of very few here in Monterey County that doesn't have an automatic...

1st leasee declared bankruptcy just short of the halfway mark of paying this car off in full - just before the car got repossessed I bought my way in to take over the payments...at the time that I first drove it, the car had only 3000 miles - with all the 50-plus-hours I been doing each week at work, I should have the whip completely paid for by Summer - - so to make this long story short, Im getting this Lex for a little bit more than what I paid for my 07 Civic EX (!)
Unfortunately I dont have any mods to speak of yet, but that should change in no time at all tho -

Bored one day after working on it... mean happy face! (and signed by my beautiful wife)


A little Side Project playing around with a Truck Turbo made into a real Turbine (yes, is real, and we had to use ear protection because of the loud sound just like an airplane) NOTE: crazy experts on a very unsafe environment... do not attempt... lol

Just leased my 2008 Starfire Pearl IS 250 RWD 6MT w/ DVD Navigation, Premium Package, Wheel Locks, Cargo Net for $1500 down, $500/mo, 36 months, 15K/year. I'm sure a better deal could've possibly been bargained, but I had to get this "special order" model before someone else swooped it up!

08 Black Onyx IS250 AWD. All options, "loaded" if you will. Just installed the F-sport intake along with 8000K HID's. Tinted every window with 20%. So in love with this car its absolutely rediculous.
