Hi guys, 

I am looking into buying a is250 2010-2012 but juggling between the f sport and potentially the x? 

Personally love the f sport finishes especially wheels, seats and grill. 

Would be looking to change the grill if I purchased the x

It's a bit of a situation as I live in QLD where an x is available for a fair price but I'm also looking in melb for an f sport that's fair price but has done 100km.

Is there anything I should be wary of with those kms. 

Also trying to justify price because if I get the one from melb I'd have to fork out for freight, new rego and transfer? 

Will be used for everyday drive.

Any help would be much appreciated!

there alot of differneces between the X and F sport

-sound system

-body front spoiler and grille (will set u back atleast 1K) and half if u do find any F sport wrecks

-suspension

-wheels

-Telescopic steering wheel

-memory seats

 

what is a fair price?

X is a lower grade than F sport

so the F sport prices are higher than X

Thanks for that! 

So would you go f sport over the x even if the mileage is 35000km more with prices being similar or even slightly cheaper for the f sport?

yes i would do that

the F sports are sought after than the X as well for the obvious reasons as mentioned on my first post

oh and i forgot to point out F sport has bucket seats compared to the rest of the line up

they are similar to the ISF bucket seats

Yes, definitely a huge fan of the extra f sport features.

Is there much difference in performance wise for x and f sport for is250? 

Test drove the is250 x today and it felt heavy. Quite comfortable but definitely missing some good features. 

It probably wasn't a good idea to go drive the is350 f sport then a 250 x lol. Definitely a huge difference in performance.

The X was just a run of 450 vehicles with cosmetic changes. No performance modifications.

The extra 100hp of the 350 and no carbon issues swung me....
