choppyshrimp posted a topic in Lexus IS250 / Lexus IS250C / Lexus IS350 / Lexus IS350C Club / Lexus IS-F / IS300hHey everyone! Soon enough I'm going to be an owner of an IS350, and I'm very excited about it, however I have some questions I'm hoping you guys here could help me out with! I'm not too familiar with Lexus' so I'm not sure what cars are safe to buy, how many KM's are considered "high" for this car before things start breaking/needing replacement? Should I be worrying that much about whether or not something expensive is going to go wrong when I get one? What badge type would you guys recommend? Personally I'm wanting the 'Sports Luxury' just because it has a heap of nice features (ventilated seats, premium sound, distance control, memory seats, etc) that some other badges lack. Otherwise I'm really liking the 'F-Sport' too. Would it really be a bad option if I inevitably went with the 'Prestige' or 'X'? Any regrets picking them? I say this because the market for these cars in Victoria (within my budget) doesn't appear to be very big and I can't wait forever for the right one to pop up. I've heard the 'flappy paddle' gear shift in these cars doesn't actually let you control the current gear you're in (rather, they control the maximum gear the auto transmission shifts to). Is this true? If there's anything else you guys think I should know about this car then please let me know! I've done quite a bit of research, but there's always more to know. Thanks heaps!!
