Everyone can now rest easy as one of the greatest saga of Giant Bomb comes to a close.

According to his Tumblr, he bought a 2012 Lexus IS 350.

I now wonder what his next great never ending endeavour will be.

The "Raid" maybe?

edit: oh and here's an image of that model

I dunno much about cars but it looks nice

Awesome. If I had the money to buy a car in this price range, I might be interested in something similar. Four door sedan still fairly practical. Unlike my moderately wealthy older brother. Buying a two door no back seat completely impractical sports car. All I want is for him to buy a car that I can fit my goddamn suitcase into when he picks me up from the airport when I visit. D:

BAAAAAAAAAAAAAALLIN'

306 HP. Not bad at all. For me going from 100HP crappy Chevy to much better 175HP VW was significant performance gain so that would be insane. Also costs 15K more than my did new hahaha. That car is in Golf R territory,
 
Also, Jeff don't let what happened to Ice Cube happen to you. Don't kick a ho out on Imperial or that ho will steal your Lexo and smash your window and make you put out your indo.

When the fuck did Jeff get a tumblr and how come I only know of it now?

#10 Posted by Dixavd (1524 posts) -

If I were to give my deeply well-researched analysis of this purchase, I would say: "I sure does look like a car".

He abandoned Formspring for it.

#13 Posted by InfiniteGeass (2143 posts) -

So when was the first mention of him wanting to buy one anyway? Wasn't it a year or two ago?

I think at least 2 years ago. He used to talk about it on the drivestreams a lot.

Finally I have seen a nicer car than my 1985 Toyota Corolla hatchback.

I know what you mean. I was very close to buying an R/T Challenger and decided on an SRT Charger instead due to the 4 doors, spacious back seats, and 425hp.

Whenever the crew buy something big ticket like this I wonder how much this videogame reviewing gig really pays. Seems to be pretty well I guess.

#21 Posted by Harpell (185 posts) -

Man, and I felt so rad trading up from a '94 model Pontiac to something from the current millennium.

#22 Posted by Funkydupe (3458 posts) -

Nice car!

#23 Posted by Christoffer (2099 posts) -

I knew he could do it.

Now Brad needs to finish ME3, Vinny needs to buy a pocket watch and Patrick needs a new computer. Then order is restored in the universe.

#24 Posted by Zomgfruitbunnies (1010 posts) -

What is a car and how do I drive?

#25 Posted by wjb (1763 posts) -

Only assholes drive Lexus, so is Jeff an asshole now, or is the twist is he was always an asshole from the beginning? Like, The Sixth Sense...but assholes?

Doubt it's that well generally, Jeff is one of the higher ups and most well known so that's going to change things.

Also Jeff doesn't have pets or kids (at least not living in his house and if there are then oh Jesus call child services immidiately). But that Lexus is a pretty nice car. Not what I'd get in that price-rance but I hear that Jeff has been clammering for one for a long time so good for him.

#28 Posted by Subjugation (4815 posts) -

Hmm. This means that either Jeff is paid a lot more than I thought or he just took on a large expense that he probably shouldn't have. Lexus ain't cheap!

#29 Posted by laserbolts (5470 posts) -

Decent car. Congrats on the buy Jeff.

#30 Posted by Chrjz (392 posts) -

Damn, $40,000 is a lot of car.

#31 Posted by Deadmanforking (584 posts) -

White car? Meh, I do not like white cars. Purple is were its at!

#32 Posted by Sanity (2062 posts) -

Nice car, personally i'll never buy a new car just because i live in the northeast... Between the salt on the roads and the gravel its enough to make you cry if you really care about your car.

#33 Posted by XenoNick (1522 posts) -

Sweet car, congrats Jeff.

Yea. If you don't have dependents, and you're not a complete idiot with your money, you can actually live pretty well on a normal salary. I'm sure his is one of the better incomes in that industry, though.

Sexy car! Congrats!

Nice pickup Jeff. That's the next best to your original want of the ISF. :P

#47 Posted by JasonR86 (10028 posts) -

That's a pretty good car. He's been talking about getting that car for a while so I'm glad he made the decision.

Lowering alert level to JefCon 4.

Cool car. I want to hear him talk about the flappy paddy gearbox he has to deal with. Those aren't quite as fun to use as the more traditional gearboxes.

Nah, that is Audi S5s and the like. We learned this on Top Gear, the cocks went from driving M3s and M5s to Audi S5s, A6s, and so on. So now it is safe to buy Lexus and BMW again without having your reputation ruined.
