As long as the car was taken car of... you shouldn't have a problem with high mileage IS300's. The car itself is sturdy... but then again it all depends on how well the car was taken car of.

-on 4th set of brake pads
-4th set of tire
-tranny slips around 2k~3.4krpm when accelerating and makes noise when cold.
-LSD feels worn.
-i have to turn the CD player on and off in rapid succession about 10-15times in order for it to recognize a CD.
-heat seater(tm) light went out 2days ago. but still keeps my back warm.
-wiper blade needs replacing for the 1st time, hasnt rained in months.
-doors that are rarely used (rear ones, esp) creak when opening/closing, needs to be greased.. who cares, i rarely use it anyways.
-wheel lock key broke for the 2nd time.

car still feels stable and pulls great up to the speed governor.

Most of those items are general wear and tear/maintenance that needs to be done on any car. If you don't look after them... your car will deteriorate fast.
