    Default Lexus IS250

    Just thought I'd share this with you guys; brother popped round today in a Lexus IS250, what a nice motor this is, had a drive in it myself and I have to say it's the best drive I've had in years, just couldn't fault it at all, certainly puts the veccy to shame on all fronts, got back in mine and felt like I was driving an old banger!! LOL just need to start saving those pennies I think!! anyone else driven one at all?
    Cheers Pete

    You're right there mate, I know the old IS200 had handling and tyre wear issues which could be resolved by altering camber etc, but feels like they got it right on the 250, so top marks to them for producing a decent motor unlike our cheapskate vx counterparts!!LOL

    You have to remember that the Lexus range is produced as their premium range, pitched against Merc and BMW.

    I had one as a pool car from work, couldnt fault it at all - lovely car. Although, they have a very high "wasteline", getting out of a 4x4 and getting into the Lexus - felt like a something Al Capone would use for a driveby shooting!

    Definately wouldnt complain at having one sat on my driveway
