I'm down in Colorado Springs and I just bought a solar yellow IS 300 that was originally from Aurora before it went to auction. Maybe you guys saw it driving around a few months ago? Hopefully it wasn't beat to crap but from the looks of everything I think it was babied. It already has Volk GT-N's in gunmetal and HKS Hipermax coilovers, sweet ride!

^^ yes unfortunately it does! I wish I could get all the original parts from that guy, but I do appreciate the wheels and suspension he traded it in with! Could you tell me anything about the owner?

I'm obsessed with it and I haven't even taken delivery yet lol. My prelude is going in for repairs on Monday, so if they finish on time I'll pick up the Lexus on Friday or Saturday. I can't wait, I've already paid for some of the stock pieces I wanted and I've sold over $700 in parts from my Prelude. I could put that money into toys for the Lexo, but to be honest I think it's perfect in stock trim. I modded the crap out of my previous 3 cars and now I've learned that there are a lot of problems associated with even simple mods. If the car wasn't everything I wanted stock I wouldn't have bought it, but like I mentioned before it has the wheels and suspension upgrades which I am actually thankful for because that's two areas where you can see huge improvements with minimal tradeoffs.

If you guys want to meet up sometime let me know!
