No Lexus enthusiasm??

for Lexus? I haven't found any good Lexus forums that are as informative and passionate about Lexus as this here e90post.com. I've learned so much about e90's in general and would like to learn more from other car forums but there aren't any good informative ones. I rather learn about a car from it's drivers than from the dealers.

I did just about the same...was checking out the IS250. Also visited acurazine (not bad) and mbworld (pretty dead). Actually this forum might have sealed the deal on my e90...

when i was shopping around also i was over at clublexus.com and myis.com (used to be is300.net) and those sites are huge so you have to filter out a lot of dumb stuff to get to some good info. but its there. good sites and i still visit them once in a while.

but the e90post seem like a good group of people with good info. more family like than say over at bimmerfest. maybe because so cals represented here so strongly?

ya this website played a factor in me getting the 3, that and the IS didnt handle as well IMO. Now whenever i see a new IS on the road it just looks so bland while a 3 is so pretty.

I saw a silver IS350 at school yesterday and it looked very nice. The look is growing on me. I think it has a very nice design.

my.is (is300.net) is definately one of the best automotive forums I've ever been a member of.

The IS300 enthusuasts over there are more passionate about their cars than what I've seen here on E90Post so far. For example, this guy: http://my.is/forums/showthread.php?t=287373

It's very informative over there as well. The only thing is that the tuners and aftermarket companies are VERY cometative and secretive for the IS300 world. Probably because they are fighting over such a small market.

The IS350/250 crowd is still very new, so there's not much there for those cars yet. Plus I think Lexus sold out to more of a mass market with the new car, so you get the typical sleepy lexus owner.

The impressive part is that he did it all in his personal home's garage, in a very short amount of time.
