Hey guys, found my way here after looking for information about the Lexus IS200 service scheduals as ill be in the market come November and thought id join up to have a poke around a see what the go is.

A little bit about me, im 22 and live in SE Melbourne, been driving Hondas for as long as i've had my licence and had a couple of motorbikes in there too. Anyway as my 20 year old Prelude reaches the 210,000km mark its become some matter of urgency i start thinking about what to replace it with. Spent a lot of time wanting peformance cars like Supras and S15's but through my work at a Toyota dealership i was fortunate enough to drive a couple of IS200's as trade ins. I developed somewhat of a soft spot for the decent amount of power but more important the luxury features and the quality of the ride and build (sent from god after an ancient lowered Honda).

From what i've read, watched and heard from other owners and the guys at the Lexus dealership next door to us the auto IS200 is a bit of a cop out compared to the manual no? I havnt had a chance to drive a manual one yet but im looking forward to it as i've only ever owned manuals and id probably prefer to stick with them but not overly fussed as long as its a bit of fun to drive. Also considering an IS300 but that's a different kettle of fish.

Anyway this is an intro after all so ill do a bit of research around the site here and hope to join you guys as a Lexus owner by the end of the year.
