Anyone get their car from there? I went 2 months ago they said the 2009's IS-F were coming November but still none today. I asked for a test drive and the salesman declined and said they do not allow test drives only sales or only a drive within the premises of the dealership which is the inventory lot. so far bad experiences with the salesmans there. Any recommendations in So Cal Los Angeles area?

I haven't heard very good things about them, I'd definitely look around! Start where Fig sent you, he wouldn't lead you wrong :cool:

Yup, can't go wrong with Lexus of Westminister. My family has bought 4 cars from them and always have gotten great deals. Go and try to talk to Ralph, the salesman( he is an older guy, but very good salesman and person I might add). We brought our IS-F from them and definitely great service.:cool:

Tcelicargtsd did you go to that dealership by yourself? And also what's your age? I notice that these shady dealership judges you by your appearance. I went through the same thing as you did but it was in NJ.

Sorry to hear about the b.s. treatment you received at Longo Lexus--doesn't really surprise me. When the IS F came out early this year, they put me on the waiting list and never even called me back to buy a car!! I couldn't believe it (I was absolutely serious and bought a car from another dealer right away).

I'd recommend trying South Bay Lexus in Torrance. Good guys and no pressure. Also, there's an excellent strip of road near the dealer that surrounds a muni airport, so you can really get on the pedal for a bit if you'd like to.

Good luck.

I have nothing but great things to say about Longo. I have purchased 3 Lexus' from them in the last 4 years. The most recent one was my special order 2009 IS F which I just picked up this past Friday. ;)

BTW, since I was there just recently, they have a 2009 Ultrasonic Blue with Black interior in their showroom as we speak.

I have delt with Jim Brown at Longo Lexus and have sent more then a few other people to him for cars and Jim and Longo have been nothing short of awesome to deal with. I would give him a call and see if he cannot make up for your bad experiance you had with Longo so far.

thanks everyone.i chose to go to Longo because its only a few miles from where i live. and crazee i dont think it was my appearance even though i'm a bald 21 year old chinese guy. i went with my dad and we rolled up in a BMW 535i parked in front of the salesman. i also think they wont be getting 2009's until they clear the 08's because they have around 5-6 left. some of them have the red tag sale which is $3000 off so $59k plus tax or out the door would be great and possible. i guess i'll try making some phone calls next month or something

I picked up mine today for 53,500 fully loaded with clear bra, xm, and tint. 45 miles on it brand new. You can def. find great deals this month. You need to be patient, because you hold all of the cards.

What color are you looking for? They have one 2009 Ultrasonic Blue in their showroom as I mentioned previously. As for 2009 inventory, you wont find any in the Western Region until they deplete most of their 2008 in the current inventory.

Actually, the '08 and '09 F tailights are the same. The '09 2IS changed tails, but the F didn't. Mine is an '08, but i've attached a pict of an '09.

I got mine at Crown Lexus in Ontario. If you are a Sam's Club member, you'll save $4,700 off the sticker price. Talk to Jim Martin. He's very professional and accommodating. He'll even give you a chance to step on it! :)
