From BMW 3 series to Lexus IS 300
By Ralph on

Vehicle

2002 Lexus IS 300 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5M)

Review

As a previous owner of a 2000 BMW 323i, it was a pleasure to finally turn it back at the end of the lease and purchase a 2002 IS 300. This Lexus is fun to drive, all of the controls are within easy reach, everything seems to be in the right place and the inside and outside styling is refreshingly contemporary as compared to the aging 3 series. The Lexus has been problem free from day one. The outgoing 323i was a great automobile but was ridden with broken window regulators, stuck moonroof shades, horrible window creaking when driving and poor quality leather seats which required frequent shop visits.

Favorite Features

fun factor, performance, reliability of a Lexus, great a/c system, awesome brakes, 6 disc in-dash changer, ecsaine seats, manual shifter, dash instruments, lots of standard features = "big bang for the buck"

Suggested Improvements

fuel efficiency, need an IS 430 with a V8, swap tacho and speedo
