Little Bit Of Guidance

Recommended Posts

Hey people!

First post on the lexus forums!

Firstly, im looking for a nice IS200, ill either be trading in my w reg focus 2.0 4dr ghia or 1.6 astra 02 plate against one, i dont know what car to trade in for one.

The question is im looking for a tidy example around about the 10k mark, and pay the diffrence on the trade in value just by finance.

Im also hoping to find one with Sat/Nav too just for the fun of having it! :)

Can anyone recommend some subtle touches to the car? ive mostly been a ford man, so i dont know much on subtle bodystyling on the lexus.

Sounds Good!

Can anyone help me out with the diffrent models?

Whats the best model to get? S, SE or just the normal ?

What one comes with the sat/nav system? I requested a test drive on the lexus website and put down IS200 Sport.

Between all the few versions is the engine spec the same?

Engine is the same across all the IS200s. Full specs are on the Lexus web site.

S (now called just the IS200) only has cloth seats, no sunroof, different stereo etc. SE has all the toys, sport has lowered suspension, spoiler, LSD.

Sat nav is an option

go for the SE or the Sport. S is not really worth the bother unless you are strapped for cash and want a newer plate on a lower spec car etc!

They don't hold their value as well and will probably not be too easy to shift later!

I would consider upping your budget a bit. My original budget was 10, but I ended parting with 15, lexus main dealer was brilliant, sorted out a brilliant 2 year finance package, rac checks, the lexus warranty etc etc I have no regrets about getting it from a main dealer.

For 10K i found most of them to S models, very FEW had sat nav, and most between 80-120k on the clock. I was looking around auctions, trade centres, privates etc. One place not mentioning any names, had people sitting in the cars taking bits even tho SOLD was written on the car.... :blink:

P.S LeedsLad has his old lex for sale ;)

And Part with the FIXED OR REPAIRED DAILY :)
