    2002 Lexus IS 300 - Manual Sedan

    Pros: inline-6

    Cons: too cramped in the rear passenger area

    Advice: look into getting the A4 quattro 6sp for the same price

    The car handles nicely, but it is missing a lot of the amenities that the Audi A4 has. Such as, memory seats, heated rear, dual climate control, 6sp, awd, power trunk release, air bag release based on impact, rear seats fold down, 12-way electronically adjustable seats, free oil changes and scheduled services and a lot of rear legroom. The Lexus' rear passenger space is very limited and the seats do not come down to have access to the rear (only a ski pass-through in the armrest).

    2002 Lexus SC 430 - Base

    Pros: hardtop convertable, interior, performance-handling, quality-features

    Cons: trunk space-but they all suffer from that, front grill - but it growing on me, cup holders/seat belt position, side/rear visibility - small things like that.

    Advice: Get on the waiting list. Can't bargain because it's in high demand. Learn how to say thank you for the compliment and it costs??? and other questions people frequently as you . The one I get the most is 'I'll trade you'

    The best care I have ever driven. I feel like a celebrity in the car. It gets a lot of attention...not for the shy. If is worth the wait and price. The quality and performance is next to none. The body style is quickly growing on me...everyone thinks the is unique and 'wow'. No regrets. Buy it, if you can!

    2002 Lexus IS 300 - Manual Sedan

    Pros: The tightness of the car in every aspect!!

    Cons: ??

    Advice: get a car cover.

    Gripping, Literally!! This car stays on the road. When you get in the car it feels like the car is pulled over and around you. When you hit a 90 degree right turn at 45 and you never slide in your seat or on the road that is when you know that the car can handel. Also available at the dealer is a L-Tuned package. You can get 18-inch rims and a sport suspension.
