i love my lex dont get me wrong, but i wish i had bought a manual not an auto,. i'm a driver (not a b/racer) but i do like to drive hard at times and like to feel that theres grunt under my feet!
i dont really want to be chopping about my IS as i always said i was going to keep everything standard and now i'm getting a little bored of it and like you i to have had a few niggly faults.nothing serious but annoying all the same and not what i expected from a prestige car. the one thing that really annoys me is the fact that i have crap fuel economy and not enough performance to justify it.
also the car is up to 85K now and i realy want to sell it before it hits the big 100 as i feel that this always puts people off, its like putting a 99p on the end of a price tag it always seems cheaper than 00!
also most of my friends round hear are into v dubs(not yah yah rubbish all OEM parts with style) and so was i, up until the lex but ive been out of the vw scene for a year or two now and i'm kind of missing the it, i havent got into the lex scene really as i feel a little lame to be turning up in a standard auto which is nothing out of the ordinary unlike some of you guys with your 300's 250's and altezzas.
anyway what set the ball in motion (and some of you may laugh and take the p**s!) is that my mate who has the golf rallye has offered me his corrado vr6 and it seems to solve all my probs, it means that i get chance to go to meets and shows with all my mates and that ive got the grunt i am crying out for, and also its a car that i dont mind choping about a little to get how i like it.
anyways thats the long and short of it all really. plz dont take any offence as i love lexus and i know i will end up with another in the future,( i know that a year down the line i will be wanting my air con / climate / cruise and all those other toys back!)
so before you all dose of after this essay ive just typed 1 quick question how much do you think i should ask for a 99t 200s auto with 85k on the clock in plat ice?
