Dilema

Recommended Posts

Hi All!

I have had the delight of driving an IS200 SE for the past three years, its now coming to the time when I can choose again and I was looking at the Sport or limited edition versions. What do people think I should go for? I like the spoiler on the sport version and the scuff plates but also like the colour and wheels on the LE.

Does anyone have any pics of an IS200 LE?

I was thinking of maybe buying my SE off the lease company, they want 11k, Y plate 60k on the clock. However I lose the benefit of not having to worry about servicing, tyres insurance etc. What have people here done in similar situations?

Ian

HIDs and Full leather and better residual value make the LE an excellent choice if buying from new (and if you like the colour)

1 - get the LE for the good reasons mentioned above

2 - offer to swop alloys for standard sports ones on here

3 - wait for several people to bite your hand off!

:P

Hmmmm................ok 2p worth commin up..........

LE.................

Like:

full leather, HID's.

Hate:

Wheels and not able to get the tints/LSD as on sport

I guess considering the price dif the LE is the better option, but i like the tints on the sport, the HIDs would be cool though, and im not fussed about the full leather as it takes a lil while for your rear to adjust to it in the warm summer days..........and dont even think of wearing a pair a shorts :)

Get a sport. The new ones (when they become available) will have the LE wheels and full leather.

If you like the colour of the LE have a look at the new standard IS colour Antimony, looks similar.

Don't forget the LSD that comes with the Sport...

Thanks chaps, just out of interest what is LSD?

I've looked on Lexus tech site and cannot find any mention of it.

Limited Slip Differential.

I think it means that the power can be adjusted in different levels to the rear wheels (ie 60 % on the left and 40% on the right).

Thanks aido,

I went to my local dealer and then had the IS300 LE, I like the fact it comes as standard with spoiler, tinted windows, scuff plates etcs. Pity they didnt do that for the IS200, although I guess you could get them as extras.
