Lowest amount of money paid for an IS300?

Hi everyone, just wondering what kind of deals people got and the lowest people have paid for an IS300.

I'll start out:

I bought a 2001 MSM with about 98k miles, clean title, works 100% only two minor dings for $6800 cash.

I bought a 2002 onyx black IS300 with full leather interior, clean title, interior and exterior was immaculate. Owner thought the engine (130k) was blown (I replaced it anyway) but turned out that it was fine all along and it was a problem with the coilpacks. Bought this car for $6000 cash. Got AEM intake, lowering springs, and car cover as a bonus.

I came across a 2002 IS300, 75k miles, salvaged title, needed engine replaced. ABS, Trac light, brake light, CEL were all on. Had cwest kit and some other extra bonus's for $5800 but passed up the deal. Figured it would be too much of a headache....

Just to update this thread... I bought my 2001 IS300 that I just totaled for $7000 out the door from a dealership with 120k on it in 2007.

I know there's many other people that have got even better deals, let's hear them!

Auctions? I wouldn't trust the places that sells the car that low of a price.

Just bought my 01 IS300 silver with black leather/sude interior. No heated seats, no gps. But it does have leather and limited slip and sunroof. It has 113k miles, needs tires(480$), 2 02 sensors (230$), has a dent the size of a quarter (300$), and could prob use a new drive belt ($?) bought it for 10,400 Clean title and carfax. It had a new timing belt, brakes, water pump and tune up. Slightly high miles, but I figure with the money I saved I can rebuild the engine and turbo it.

Bought my '02 MSM 5-speed from an insurance auction with minor front damage for $6,700. Salvage title. Only 51K miles, no frame or suspension damage. Obviously doing it this way is not for everyone. By the time it is complete I will have actually spent around $9,500.
