This is my first Lexus and while it's the bottom of the range, the attention to detail is clearly evident in the design of this vehicle. The Black Sapphire is a beautiful color, the fit and function is wonderful and the drive is tight and responsive, without being dangerously fast (like the IS 350). Chose the IS 250 over the IS 350 because I couldn't afford the speeding tickets and for the gas mileage. I'm getting about 18 mpg in SF city driving.
Keyless entry, reverse camera, voice command, interior and exterior lights are fabulous. Driving.
Move the plugs in the center console. Replace the ashtray with an iPod/cellphone holder. Seat memory standard option.
