LEXUS IS I Is this a decent price I got on my new Frontier

Im picking up new 2012 frontier Crew Cab Long Bed 4X4 SV tomorrow for 25k. Am I getting raped or is this decent I can back out but I would feel like a dick because the dealer had it sent from a few hundred miles away. Just curious how good or bad of a deal it is.

Yea 72 months is long. I plan to keep it longer though. The problem is my student loan payments are about 3k per month (dental school was expensive) my mortgage is like 2200 per month Medical insurance for my family (3 kids 7 4 and 3 months) is pretty damn expensive etc etc. Oh and my wifes job of breast feeding cleaning diaper changing doesnt pay any bills. That and my wife needs a new vehicle we

LEXUS IS I 2004 Rear Bumper Adjustment -- Is there any

Ive bumped my rear bumper a couple of times over the years and I swear it is leaning down now (from the front side to the back side maybe 14). Is there any adjustment in the bolts holding the bumper to the bumper brackets or in the bolts holding the bumper brackets to the frame I didnt see anything in the service manual about an adjustment at either location and I didnt see any previous threads discussing

Thanks guys I loosened the two bolts on each side holding the bumper to the bumper brackets (there are three on each side holding the brackets to the frame) and that gave me plenty of adjustment. Im not sure if the whole bumper dropped down some or not. I think it may have because Ive got a good 38 between the top of the bumper and the tailgate when the tailgate is down and I dont remember having that

LEXUS CT Clear 3M Front End Protection...Good and How Much

I would like to hear from someone who has installed this on their car...either the CT200 or in the past. How much should it cost installed And does it really work If a stone that would normally chip the paint hits this clear plastic wouldnt it still chip the paint And it it gets scratched up do you then remove it after awhile and redo it

My 09 ES350 came from the factory with the clear bra that lexus calls Paint Protection Film. I wasnt thrilled about the 429 option but because the car had the Mark Levinson premium audio package (rare for a 2009 standard ES350) and was otherwise equipped exactly how I wanted I decided to take the car. With the money already spent I am now glad that the car came with the clear bra despite its cost.

LEXUS CT Amplifier upgrade for front speakers

Hello please assume that were upgrading the base system left and right dash and doors. This would greatly help people like me confidently upgrade their after market speakers that can use more power than the factory had unit. Thank you for your participation 1. Location for amplifier 2. Where to pull 12v ground and turn on 3. Inputs for amplifier 4. Outputs from amplifier Where to connect to speakers in door and dash 5. Recommended power output of amplifier 6. Recommended accessories

My recommendation if you wish to keep your factory headunit is to use something like the AudioControl LC8i. Basically like a line out converter but you will get a good quality output out of it. wires something like this this will also get rid of the factorys built in x-overs(which is there for speaker safety) So i dont think i would put too much power to the factory 6x9s i would be afraid to blow them

LEXUS GS Road Test - Lexus GS 350 F Sport (A)

GS at its Purest The lexus GS has evolved from its predecessor making it a bona fide sports sedan that does not compromise on comfort space and luxury. The first generation GS began in 1993 introducing the Japanese brand into the unsympathetic luxury segment. It wasnt until 98 when the second generation using a new platform saw daylight. That was also the time when lexus incorporated a V8 engine for

LEXUS CT Upclose & Personal 2011 Lexus CT200h

These are the pics that I took at the CT Kick Off Party in NYC a few weeks ago at Skylight West. I had a chance to check out the CT200h upclose during the event. This CT200h is painted Starfire Pearl (077) with black interior. The dramatic club-like lighting at the Skylight West gives you a hint of what the CT would look like in different colors. There are a lot of L-Finesse design cues inside and

Distinct quarter window kick up is more prominent in the CT. This design gives a more masculine feel. This a cue that first started with the 2IS. front center fascia is pulled forward to give a more aerodynamic feel. This approach is very similar to how the ISFs front end is designed. The headlights have a raked look which is pulled up and back at the ends and angled down and forward at the inner edges.

Trying to decide between a 550xi and the X5 50i. I want to get the M Package but have to admit I am more intrigued by the M performance package available on the X5. I live in the great plains so the SUV is nice but the all wheel drive on the 550XI would work. I have previously owned a Cayenne S and am turning in a Mercedes GL 320 for this purchase.

TESLA ROADSTER Body Panel Gap and Alignment Issues

Now that Model S production is in full swing I wanted to document some remaining body panel gap and alignment issues. Overall the body panel gaps and alignment have improved a lot from the beta and pre-production vehicles used at the test drive events but issues still remain for a vehicle at this price point especially along the hood and front fenders. I know this has been discussed before but it was

I have to say I see the same panel issues. It is nowhere near the perfection of my previous lexus. As a matter of fact the top edge of the front fender by the A-pillar mentioned above is something that is common on a 1969 Camaro - which I have a body shop correcting on my Camaro. For me to notice it and compare it to a 43 year old Chevy is somewhat sad actually. But that is not something that can be

MERCEDES BENZ SLK R170 Dirt in the speedo...

I am sorry to take the attention away from the AMG frenzy with my mundane 230 (which I love nevertheless -)br br Recently I have noticed a small speck of dirt in our speedometer at the bottom near the odometer. How difficult is it to open it Is there someplace I can try to blow compressed air in How can something get in therebr br To be honest there is probably no chance that I will work on the cars

1) Im sure nobody here buys a new car (lexus MB whatever) as an investment. (Except Victor-)br 2) It would be much more fair to compare the lexus investment value now with the SLK in 98 when it just came out and there was a huge shortage on the cars.br 3) I actually did try to take a lexus for a test drive but the sales people only had one on the floor that was already sold. I must say to my surprise

BMW X5 E70 Which other SUVs did you ownconsider

I already have my X5 (two weeks now) but it was a TOUGH decision between it and the MDX. Factors that swayed me were -German design engine and transmission (although I have no beef with Japanese stuff per se and really like my G35). -Non-transverse engine for better handling ditto a rear-drive platform (yes both are AWD but its the starting architecture Im talking about). - Acura is a glorified Honda

best all-rounder of the bunch. Only the Touareg came in at a significantly lower price and after the BMW incentives the X5 was a relative bargain. I really didnt consider the Japanese SUVs seriously. Several co-workers have MDXs and like them but Acura has really screwed up the styling and theyre not much fun to drive. The MDX ends up feeling like a minivan without the versatility.

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS M W163 Anybody warmed up to W164

Well at first I thought after a few months I get used to the new ML look. But the more time goes by the more I dislike the exterior design. It reminds me on a Toyota RAV4 in a larger scale. Just wonder how you guys feel.

more luxurious than the W163. I like the upgraded instrumentation and controls and the power tailgate feature and the cargo management system. I do not like the upholstery job though. In fact the quality of leather and stitching in all newer MBZ models seems to have a cheaper more mainstream look and feel. Would I buy one Maybe but probably for my wife and not me.
