Whats up people. Okay, heres the deal. In two years im getting a new car, when i graduate college, well a semester after cuz im graduating in the middle of the school year. Well, i've talked it over with the folks and part of my graduation gift is a whole bunch of cash(rents, family, friends), which i plan on using most of it on a dp on a new car. My father and I came up with a deal. He will purchase a new car this year, then when i graduate ill buy it from him for whatever he owes on it at the time. Come time for me to buy the car from him, itll cost less than me buying the same car, used from a dealer. He will put no money down, and if he has to (lexus likes to go have sales come winter time) he'll just put money out of the cash they were going to give me initially, which in the end will still equal the same amount in 2 years when i buy it..so dont worry about that. We took care of the financial part... On to the car. 2006 Lexus GS 300 AWD Car and Driver Article Its a beautiful car in person. Each of us have gone for test drives, and each of us love the car. I dont really want a honda anymore, and i dont want a compact coupe or hatch. Im not going to auto-x, drag, road race..any of that, atleast not with this car, im keeping my civic and i can work on that when i can afford it down the road. What is everyones thoughts on the car? Not so much the deal or my plans, but the car itself. Anyone driven one? Thoughts, experiences, opinions, anything? More pictures: Lexus.com Gallery Yahoo Auto Gallery 2006 Lexus is 350. Official Lexus Site More Pictures Edmunds Article Car and Driver article my.is article This car looks great, and i plan on test driving one as soon as i see them hit the showroom floors. 0-60 is faster, plus it does seem to be a better car for the money, just not as big as teh gs300. Well, looks like its time to change the old mans idea of a gs and turn it into the is350. What are your thoghts on this car, the is 350??? we havent done much research on the is350. BUt as of right now, we are looking at the gs heavily, and probably the IS more so, when we can physically touch one. We wouldnt make a decision until the christmas time/early 07 when lexus has their annual sales and such. Id rather buy it from my dad who i know doesnt beat on cars or put alot of milage on them. Good to know it was in good hands and i can keep track of all his mishaps, shedule maintence checkups and all that, too.
