Hi,

Thanks!

 

I had just enquired last week when COE fell - ES 250 Luxury 4IL FWD is 225K with 20K overtrade - 215K OTR. 3+3 service and warranty. 

 

The new look Q70 Infiniti is 212K - V6 2.5 litre RWD "artisan model" - looks more voluptuous and has also 3 + 3 service and warranty. 

 

Test drove the ES - no complaints, can live with it happily. Must try the new  Q70 - drove the previous M37 - a little noisier. Apparently the new Q70 is much quieter and handle better?

 

Lots of options at this price. E class Merc, A6 Audi, XF Jag all about the same price range or a little cheaper. However Lexus is a keeper - I have owned 2 - a GS then the LS. They tend to "spoil you" and you tend to gravitate back to them.

honestly speaking ES has very lousy interior.. so much plastic and looks cheap... I don't know about the drive but when I sit in , I cant believe this is lexus.. the plastic and rough finishing turn me off .. can be worst then some entry level car ...

 

go for GS and above.

What you mean OTR 205k instead 215k ? This price too expensive as I enquired it in April when COE at 71k the SE offer me 207k , 3 years servicing , 5 years warranty and insurance subsidy up to 2k . Now COE only 58k and the car price almost the same ?!

I visit Lexus during the weekend as well for the ES.  The ES250 Executive is listed as $225k.  I have a vehicle to trade-in and the trade-in price is $33k over the scrap value.  But noted that the scrap date has about 4.5 months left which suppose to have around $3k+ in residual value over the scrap value.  So, the overtrade is more like $30k which make the net price to be $195k.  Also, a $50k min 1 year loan is needed to get the price. My SE said either get 5 yr warranty OR $2k insurance subsidy.  From the SE, the overtrade value is the same for the hybrid or luxury model.

Plastic interior never mind, nowadays most cars so plasticky looking or with fake coated like brushed metal which i remember in my old ride fades to leave a black plastic   ....but the  Lexus ES plastic like stains easily and leaves a kind of white mark or dust like look or oil stain , maybe they try to use soft plastic for the cool like feel but i'm kind of wondering why it happens so easily 

 

I remember the OMV was quite low (at that time there was no CEV rebate for the ES250) only ES300 had

The old car left with 4.5 month, the quote is scrap value + $33k

Was told that price will be higher for the facelift model and they will not reduce price to clear stock. Not sure if this makes sense.  Anyone got any latest price quotes from them?

go for GS and above.

Interior is oklah in my opinion, dont think it looks cheap.

 

Yes, will go for GS if u want a sporty drive - its v powerful, larger screen, HUD display etc. Pls note that i find that the camry is more spacious than the GS (especially back row), headroom is poor too.  

 

ES interior space is cavernous, second only to LS, with added space of absence of middle hump.

 

Go for ES300h luxury, the only want with auto tail gate. BSM (blind spot monitor) is v useful.  Fuel consumption is good too.  If careful eco mode most of the time - can get 1000km range.  Otherwise, if spirited driving, still can get at least 850km.

 

However, since the facelift ES is coming at the end of the year, suggest new buyer should wait for this latest version.

plastic nevermind? haha sorry I cannot.. if look at the center console / door and the gear stick area all so plastic and the gap uneven throughout. I expect such luxury car to have like those soft touch layer over the plastic. second if u look at the rear blind... the metal looks so cheapo. maybe because I am in the manufacturing industry we tend to have this occupational disease.


Agreed,RWD for better handling,if for Lexus,go for the GS250,or maybe later is there a GS200t.?

then there is always this question.. I realise the paint work tends to look different frm the conti brand.. I just feel the paint work looks more solid and smooth for merc/bmw but the lexus paint work looks wavy. I believe this has to do with the sheet metal under.. maybe because thinner

still no worth. considering XF is cheaper and higher omv. Volvo s80 seems better too
