I finally was able to pick up an IS, without spending a small fortune, was 1st to respond to a FB listing for an 01 white, auto, cloth, moonroof with 190k, at $2300 and daily driveable I jumped on it. I'll be keeping it as well as my gx470 for several years so don't mind upgrading and mods to get LSD and possibly MT. Anything I should know about the 01 besides less options? Saw a FB group where someone WTB specifically an 01, seems like most want the later models. Just happy to have found one sub5k$

They are easier to 1jz swap and don't have the sticky interior. I actually swapped my center console and dash in my 2002 for 2001 parts. just make sure that ball joints have been done and timing service is up to date. otherwise these cars are very solid even at higher mileages.
