Did I over pay?

Hey guys, new member here. Around a month ago I picked up an 01 IS300 for $8,500. It has 63,000 miles on it and only had 1 previous owner on it. Aside from a couple tiny scratches and nicks on it, the car is perfect inside/out. I really feel like I over-payed for it, but I think she's worth it

Naw, thats pretty low millage for an 01. As long as the title is clean... If its a rebuilt title, Then maybe a lil to high in price. congrats and welcome to a great community of nice informative people.

Is it 5 speed?

In my area (Chicago), there is an 03 is300 5 speed 62k miles for $11,000 (rebuilt) and another one GGP that is also 5 speed and has 99k miles for $13,500.

Keep in note, that isn't dealership and these guys are literally asking for gold. You paid the right amount, you didn't OVERPAY but you surely didn't get a steal, let's put it that way.

It depends on your area, and who you bought it from (dealership vs private). I'd say you paid a bit much for an '01..... but does it even matter now? lol

Do you reside in Hoffman Estats too? I live like 15 minutes away if you are - cool.

It's okay if you don't know how to drive stick, usually finding these cars in 5 speed is very hard but obtainable was just curious.

I live like a good 30 mins away from there. It was a pretty decent drive to get there
