So let's face it.

This car is not as fast as most people would have liked it to be.

It's still a reall nice ride.
I liken it to a "pimp mobile"...
you ease drive everywhere, pimping and profiling your new Lexus. It's a car to be seen in, not speeding in.

enjoy the ride

it's funny...
I've been following this board for a while now but was afraid to post anything because everyone here is either into stock IS300s or Ricey IS300s...where as me, I think I'm the only one wanting 19" chromes (actually I might end up with 18"chromes...19s are reaaally expensive and hard to take care of), limo tint and big sub woofer box in the trunk, and possibly custom plush seat covers.

I wish there were gold packages for the IS300. ie gold emblems and such...

ok guys try not to flame away at me..I'm just trying to be different....like I said I'm not into speed...more into just pimpin the car!

19s would look really nice on the car, but they will definitely make the car slower than it is. There have been tests made of different wheel sizes, and the conclusion is that 17s offer the best compromise of ride/comfort and performance.

i don't see what you all have against "ricers." really, what the hell do they do wrong? i'm probably a ricer to you people. 18" NON-chrome rims, exhaust, and all that basic stuff. does that make me a ricer, or what? my bottom line is a mix of performance/appearance, with a little more looks since i already blew all the money on my car. 2001 GS430. like mrclam said a few times, "differenct strokes for different folks", so let's not complain about ricers, or stockis300.
