Is anyone aware of a legitimate way to obtain an IS350 in the UK?

After looking at the Lexus range and deciding some time back this was the car for me, I found out it was never available (through Lexus) in the UK, but was sold into various overseas markets.

Such a shame as it would be a class beater - that performance in a small rear wheel drive package.

If there was a reputable source for these cars (RHD) I would be very interested to pick one up.

First thought was Japan possibly.  

I'm not familiar with the model but if you find one (or the equivalent Toyota model) you could import it in.

Here's a couple to whet the appetite. Grade 4.5 too:

Australia could be another source as they were sold new there. Although like-for-like they could be pricier than ones from Japan (but at least the controls would be in English).

Or alternatively there's always the UK-delivered Infiniti G37 😉

Thanks Ganesh and Jay, I''ll check into those Japan links Ganesh.  I did look at a company a year or two back but their volume was very low (almost importing to your individual order) and I wasnt sure how safe of legal it was, or if I would be stuck with a car that doesnt meet UK regulations etc.

Still I will look with interest at those links, thank you.
