I really enjoyed my time working with Lexus and the ownership experience is great too. Since I left the store, you can see some of my obsession continues with this photo series:

2008 Lexus IS 250 RWD 6 Speed Manual

2008 Lexus IS 250 WOSCA

This was my first Lexus. I chose it after getting to drive one at the launch of the F Sport line for Lexus and being chosen as the F Sport Champion for our store. We got to drive the IS-F at Calabogie near Ottawa and an IS 250 with all of the performance parts, intake, exhaust, springs, and 19 inch forged rims. I was really impressed at the overall balance of the vehicle. So I leased this car from my store brand new, it was the base model completely, a real price point vehicle for Lexus. I ordered a set of the smoke finish 18inch wheels and tires to give it the OEM+ look and to use the ugly 16inch stock wheels as the winter package.

 I leased this car as a Certified Pre-Owned CPO. The only modification I added was the F Sport Intake. The sound of the motor with induction noise was incredible. With winter tires, snow mode, and Vehicle Dynamics Integrated Management the vehicle drove great all year round. The back seat was cramped, even when used only as a 4 seater. It’s funny that the Ward’s 10 Best winning engine, the 2GRFSE 3.5 V6 is largely unchanged even today.

2007 Lexus GS 450h Premium Blue Icicle Blue Periwinkle Crystalline IceI bought this car wholesale from another dealer because I wanted to the combination of the rarest exterior color in Crystalline Ice, Icicle Blue Pearl, and with the lighter grey leather with Black wood trim. I added an iPod integration cable and that was it for modifications.

Tried my hand at a 2010 LX570 but it was way too big.
Built this 2003 GS430, and it made me fall in love with a V8 sedan.
But needed a more reasonable daily driver, so I picked up this 2013 GS350.
When the chance to obtain a 2012 GX460 came across my desk, I jumped at it.
