I'm looking into buying a used IS300 and I was wondering if the IS300's require you to use premium gas.

I just recently bought a Tanabe exhaust for my is 300. It sounds great and fit my red car well. It has a deep throaty sound to it and says it raised the noise level by 6 decibels. That is the exhaust to get.

yes, the IS300 requires premium gas. 91 octane and above.

Manual says premium, but I have used everything from regular to mid-grade to premium with no discernable difference and I have had the car for 4 years. Great car no problems!

I was a little disappointed today by what i was told by a Lexus salesman.
We were talking about the new IS 250 and he told me that if i wanted i could put a deposit down to get on line to order or i could wait for 6 weeks until the car came in. That was ok with me too because i wanted to see the car in person before any commitments.
The only thing that bothered me was that he said that the IS250 with AWD and NAv would ne about mid to upped 30's.
Now what was that all about?? I thought it would be in the low 30's
All i want is AWD and no NAV so if the 250 is in the mid to upper 30's then what would the 350 be?? In the lower 40's.
If the 250 is above my price target i mine as well look at the Acura TL which shouldnt be more than 33,500 with no NAV.
Anyone here get any prices from a Lexus dealer on about what the IS 250 would be??

Why do you need AWD on an IS? I'm sure the first allotment of cars will have certain popular equipment normally ordered.

I guess I'm not sure what information you are looking for ... you can't offer it for sale in our Forums, if that's what you are asking. There is a "Sell Your Car" link on the left under "Partners" that you can pursue if you'd like.
If you want advice on how to go about selling cars in general, you'll enjoy reading some of the discussions on our Smart Shopper board. You'll also find some useful information in the Tips and Advice section of Edmunds.com.
Hope this helps.

has anyone had any problems with their paint?
I have an 04 Black onyx that now has chips all over the car (they are white)
i also had a white smear on the back left side of the car between the back left window and the rear window. now I have noticed that it looks as if the paint on the passenger door handle is wearing off (this looks gray)
has anyone else experienced this?!?!
ps- the car is garage kept every night and driven on the highway 5 days a week..
i have taken the car to the dealer about the paint chipping before and they say it is normal because of highway driving...no car that is 1 year old should have tons of paint coming off...what is the deal?
