BaT Auction: 2004 Lexus IS300 5-Speed at No Reserve

This post was originally published on this site

This 2004 Lexus IS300 is finished in Indigo Ink Pearl over Ivory leather/Alcantara and optioned with a limited-slip differential, 17″ Sport Design wheels, navigation, and power/heated seats. It was sold new in Georgia before moving to North Carolina in 2007, where it has stayed since. The seller purchased this car more than seven years ago and has added over 80k miles. It now has 169k miles and is powered by a 3.0L inline-six paired with a 5-speed manual transmission. This IS300 is now being offered at no reserve with service records from new, factory books, three keys, a clear Carfax report, and a clean North Carolina title in the seller’s name.

130+ pictures are provided in the gallery below, with the Indigo Ink Pearl finish shown from multiple angles. Cosmetic imperfections include a few nicks and scratches, chips on the forward-facing surfaces, and wheel curb marks. The included Carfax does not list any accidents or other damage.

Relatively few US-spec IS300s were produced with a 5-speed manual transmission. The clutch pedal was lubricated in August 2018, and power is sent to the rear wheels through a factory-optional limited-slip differential.
