So I'm turning on 8th street and I see two IS300's flying :eek: by and I give chase, they were already going too fast for me to close the gap. There was a silver one and a dark colored one (couldnt tell if it was the dark blue or if it was black).

We catch a light and they line up next to each other and I'm behind the dark one. Patiently waiting to see if they were going to run again. So the light turns green and they get me out the hole (damn RWD, and my bald michelins), I throw 2nd and I'm passing the silver IS300 like as if it was standing still, then I throw 3rd, and rape the faster darker IS. They were modded with atleast exhaust, thats all I could see.

They were nice cars, should have followed me to talk, but I guess they were too embarrassed a lowly VW beat them bad :lol:

Right... :-?

So what your telling us is that you beat a stock Is3 and an Is3 with only exhaust, in a jacked up VW.
Wow, you must have one hell of a car to be a stock is3. :roll:


Go race an is3 with as many mods as you have and then tell us how it went.

They were both lowered with exhaust, thats what I could see at least. Dude stop being condescending, I was just posting what happened, I wasnt hating on the IS300's they were really nice looking cars.

IS-300-Rulez, yea and I ran into a turboed IS300......that guy spanked me so hard he left me dizzy :). If youre in Coral Springs I doubt we'll run into each other but who knows :D

Nah I'm not stock.

Chip/Drop In/Diverter Valve/Downpipe.

However, I raced an IS300 when I was bone stock, not even broken in and still beat him, Granted it was an auto.

Which chip and what size downpipe are you running? Which 1.8T do you have? AWW or AWD?

Dude, I used to beat them in my stock 98 GTi VR6, (before the manual's were out)

Im sure I can find a stock 180hp to race an IS300 to show you guys the results.

Why are Audi/VW guys so quick to jump on our site to post their kills? Do we have alot of IS trollers on those sites that makes you guys come over here?

Oh well, from my experience I've seen some 1.8T's run pretty well. I have never raced one (b/c each time I had 3 other peeps in the car which weighs down our heavy ass car even more), but I have seen some run that were definitely modified. So props to the 4 bangers.

Damn...no wonder you beat the ISs. Couple of my friends have GTIs and there damn quick off the line. But I doubt a GTI w/o chip can hang with an IS on the high end.... Benign, a stock IS is not gonna take a chipped GTI. If you said you did then whoever you raced is an complete idiot.

The Upsolute chip is very conservative. They don't run quite as much boost as the GIAC chip. What helps him even more is running the 3" downpipe.

Why do you have to get upset that they do come over here to post a kill story? This is why this particular forum was created. It does say IS300 vs the World.

Simpdaddy - I NEVER implied I was upset. Just wondering why we are getting so many lately....

Besides, I gave them props in my post anyway. :roll:
