Hey every one...

The IS300 has been one of my FAV. Cars... (Since it has came out)

I hope within the next couple months to pick one up
I am looking for a Yellow or graphite and it has to be manual (if I can find one)

I kind of find this site hard to navigate;
I am looking for a general IS300 information thread
Not sure if the site has one... Just like random things about the car.
Information, things that seem to go wrong motor specs.. etc..

Just trying to do my home work on the car.

I don’t want to do to much to the car right away
But i want to find out more about boosting the car
or even dropping in a different motor such as a 2jz

Other things like Coilvers, nice exahust

some prices i have seen for the car range from 16K-20K
and yellow seems extremly hard to find.

I want to wait in till my main project car is completed.
Which is a Nissan 240sx coupe, 400WHP

I should be looking at getting the Lex maybe 4 months from now, I wish sooner..

I am just looking for a newer, more reliable car, some thing comfortable.. But still sporty

Well, welcome first off. For general info on the car itself, go to General Infomation forum and IS300 Owner's Forum. For issues on boosting Try the Go Faster Forum.

EDIT: oh and btw i'm sure i won't be the first to say it but...search ;)

Going alone with orangetangs words...searching does help out greatly. And you def will get that answer from a lot of members. The homepage for the forums.... http://my.is/forums/index.php? is where you should start looking. All the different areas of interest are broken down into sub-forums. This should help you out when searching for different mods and such.

Oh I definitely know about searching...

I am apart of so many forums...
A lot of Nissan forums

I just wanted to introduce my self.

I am getting a hang of the forum layout
and have found many answers to some questions I had.

You won’t see to many Noobish questions coming from me

Once again I am so excited and can not wait to get the car

I first feel in love with the car, when I seen HKS’s Wide body alteeza YEARS AGO.

Let me continue reading and learn more about my beautiful future car.

WOW... Isn’t that some thing..

I would like a yellow one over all but.. Charcoal/graphite will do also.
Income tax is coming soon, so that will help a lot for a down payment.

i would like to get it now, but that will take away to much from my 240.

any thing done to your coupe ?
mine is around 400 wheel HP, Blacktop SR, GT2871R, 8500cc sard injectors... Plus so much more, 300zx brakes, Tein Flex coils, 18in Super Advans...

I had 2 other fastbacks, but I sold them

Here is an old pic.
