My 1999 Lexus Is200


Recommended Posts

Well, its the time of year where i buy a car for the winter months, and this year i thought i would buy a lexus..... seemed to tick a lot of boxes and cheap enough to for only 6 months ownership.....

Have to say though, i did just but this car as a run-a-bout BUT after a spiv (it was truly manky when i bought it on Friday) and put some miles down in the car, i reallly, really like it...... yeah, its slow but it just doesnt seem to matter, its a very nice car, and i am sure i will be sad to see it go come the spring.

Here are some pics for anyone that is interested.....

Thanks guys.... Thw window tint in the flesh is actually a little darker than in the pics (something i am not to keen on, but if i took it all off i would imagine it would ruin the rear screen.

Just got rid on my AERO HOT Saab Convertible (which was a hugely dissapointing car) but am looking for an old R129 Mercedes 500sl..... but i have been looking since april!!!

I paid £2400.00 for the IS200 which has done 103K miles, but it feels very tight and has a nice ride (which i think is what i like about it..... it feels very German in its ride and quality)

The car had recently had a cambelt change, new rad and new ball joints, and has MOT and tax well into next year, gear box is smooth with no bad 1st to 2nd gearchange, and i have already dialed into pulling away with enough revs to elliminate the very light clutch judder.

My brother is a Garage Service Manager (not a lexus dealership) so he is going to take it into his work next week and give it a full inspection and service. And hopefully she will be ready to serve faithfully for the winter.....

Great cars, these, i am discovering :-)

nice choice mate, if u ever sell the seats and spoiler let me know asap ;)

Are the seats not the standard ones that they all come with? i dont think the spoiler is standard, as it has a brake light on it (that works) but there is a brake light on the parcel shelf (that has been disconnected)
