Well, my Aristo's new owner should come to pick it up before Christmas so I am now looking for an IS-F

There are 3 ones available in my price range at the moment but I am not sure which one to go for. They all have the same specs/options
My personal preference for the color is Mercury Metallic > Starfire Pearl > Smoky Granite > Obsidian Black (we don't have UltraSonic Blue in Europe for 08-09 IS-F)

- Mileage 7 000km, first registration 06/2008, SGM, full options at a car trader for 49 900€
- Mileage 30 000km, first registration 04/2008, Mercury Metallic, full options at a Toyota/Lexus dealer for 49 900€
- Mileage 5000km, first registration 01/2009, Starfire Pearl, full options at a Lexus dealer for 55 500€

Obviously the first one would be the best choice but I am a bit concerned that it is not sold by a Lexus dealer and for such a car I think it would be safer.
The second one would be my choice for the color and the fact that it is a Lexus dealer however with that mileage it seems pricey compared to the others
The 3rd one is a bit more expensive but it is at Monaco which is one of the few reputable Lexus dealers in France

What is your opinion?

Make sure to ask for maintenance records, check out the car, see how much left on the tires, Do they have something like a Carfax report in Europe?

If your worried about the 1st one see if they are willing to let you have the car inspected before purchase.

That is what I will do, I will go there with a mechanic and have him inspect the car.

We don't have anything similar in France unfortunately.

Get the Starfire. :D It has the least miles and looks to be the newest!

First one is the best idea if you are really stretching your wallet to buy an IS-F. If you have the money, go with the starfire, because the 09 has that nice black dash.

My dealer said there are a ton of crashed/rebuilt IS-Fs circulating, so definitely do your DD if you pick up the first one.
