this was my dilemma, what should i get, i had quite an eclectic assortment of cars to choose from all within the relative price range. my list was something like; Honda S2000, 95-96 Hummer Wagon or Softtop, Plymouth Prowler, Lincoln Navigator, Audi TT/Roadster, Lincoln Navigator, Saab 9^5, New Celica, MR2Spyder, Porshe, SLK320, Convertible Corvette, and the IS300. Somehow or other most of the cars got crossed off without a testdrive, and i ended up waiting for the IS, waiting, waiting, going to the dealer, eating cookies, playing golf, waiting...then i got my IS, picked th blue, sight unseen. No regrets whatsoever. Car does everything i need, has everything i want, almost. not perfect for everyone, but perfect for me. i went and got me an IS300 brochure(dealer), IS200 Brochure (friend from this forum), Lexus 2000 Press Kit (ebay), some Lexus patches(ebay), Lexus hat(ebay) and a model car coming(dealer gift) to supplement my car.
