I have the exactly same problem but I also felt that my car wasnt getting into the first gear properly, so I kind of bunny hop it like if I was a learner driver. However this makes no sene to me because Ive been driving manual over 5 years and I also had a Mazda SP23 before I traded it in for this new Lexus as well. Anyway to put my mind at ease, I took my car to Chatswood Lexus service centre and after one for the service guy test drove my car, they told me that the noise I was hearing was just normal and its most likely Im getting used to the new car gear shift. Hence, what I thought and was hearing is either plain normal or in my head. To be honest, Im not happy with their response, so Im gonna take to NRMA service centre for their second opinon. Please let me know how you went with yours. Good thing is mines still under warranty.
Anyone else have a Lexus is250 Manual? Does yours make this noise? Its not so loud but its definately there.
