I am looking at buying an '01-'02 IS300 and just wondering how cramped they are? I am 6'4" and 280lbs.


Also if anyone in the SE is looking to sell their car let me know.

Look for one without a moon roof...1.5 inches more headroom. :)

You shouldn't have any height issues. I'm about 6'1" and perfectly comfortable. You've got me by 100 lbs on the weight thing though so I can't help there.

Well I am not a fatarse, just big from lifting.

Ohh, I've been looking and it seems by best deal on getting one I can afford is a 2001 with around 50k on it for $18k, does this seem decent?

Maybe its just me I'm 6'1 and when i weighed 230 from lifting i didn't feel that comfortable width wise in mine. Now i'm 205 and i fit much better. But why dont you just go to the dealership and actually sit in one. I mean everyone's sense of comfort is different.

6'2", Broad shoulders, feels ever so slightly cramped as far as my arms and shoulders, but my hips and legs are fine.

Smallest car I've ever owned interior-wise, though.

G-Damn your one big MOFO!!! Yeah I would def go to the dealership and sit in one. I'm only 5'8" @ 180 and I feel snug in there(Broad Shoulders) I wish I had the 02 and up arm rest though to make it more comfortable.

No wonder some of you complain the IS is so slow...bunch of fat asses here j/p

I'm 6'2 and 180lbs. I couldnt imagine being much bigger while being comfortable.

Top end must go waaay down as weight ^

Well I guess I'll just have to sit in one. I can fit in Mustangs fine and MKIV Supras fine, but something like a C5 is a little cramped so I just didn't know how small the interior is on an IS.
