Good god man ...what sadly misinformed magazine have you been reading? 1.8T faster than the VR6? Never, unless maybe it had a chip, and exhaust. Dude get your facts straight before you open your mouth about nothing you know about.

Whoever posted this topic needs to shut-up, dude deal with it, thats life people are gunna hate on ya. Personally i think IS300's are a joke. Why? well if it's Lexus's "sportiest" model why the hell doesn't it have a 5-speed? That whole torque issue is Bull$h!t, the SC300 came with a 5-speed, and it has even more power. Those tailights are a joke too.

IS 300s have problems, namely of which is a slow engine, cheap interior, and too high of a price. We are just expressing our opinions of this.

The topic of people coming in here and expressing these such opinions has been addressed over and over again. Lexus-IS300, I would recommend using the search function, and please shut the f*ck up.

Thank You

Your an ass. The sportest model yes stick will be out. Why not have the stick out first well its not Lexus's fault the AUTo is more popular in the states. The mercedes till resently did not even offer stick. I would mind owning a six speed E55. As for telling LEXUS IS300 to deal with it he would if stupid ignorant NON IS300 owners woul dget a life and post on there forums. Soundspeed are u a crack smoker 215 hp on a ca that is suto that can run 15's is not slow by any means unless of cource everyone in this forum owns a Ferrari.The stick version will run 14's, 14's on a stock car is pretty damn good, nice platform to start doin work on.SC300 OMG people pull these things out of there ass sometimes. The SC class has been largly unchanged since they first came out. I personally don't like owning a car with a dated body style. The lights is all personal taste, I think it gives the car a interesting loook. If you don't embrass chang then everyone will drive Tauras's. Some editors of popular mag have mix reviews of the tailight design, but none have any second thoughts on how its a joy to drive. I think from now on we IS300 owners should not even waste our time explain our purchase, as it is obvious for the money we could have went elsewhere and we picked the IS300 cause we like it. When you like a car I don't see the need to defend it with people who state ignorant opinions when they truely no nothing at times...........

My Audi TT has a 6 speed manual transmission and after driving it through the Bethesda/Rockville traffic I appreciate the Automatic transmission in my E55. Maybe Mercedes Benz should have offered a manual tranmision as an option, but my car is still rewarding to drive....

Lexus offered both a 5-speed manual and 4 speed automatic on their SC300 when it came out. However the manual transmission was removed from its lineup (probably due to lack of demand...

I'm getting pretty sick of you telling every IS300 owner here that your "VR6" is so much faster, and so much cheaper... dayam, I bet you my cousin's Prelude cost less than your VW and puts down 189.x hp to the wheels. You were saying you put down 160 something to the wheels? So what? What is your point? Does hp determine how nice a car is? First, you talk all this bs in an IS300 forum, then you talk about how slow my car is (although it doesn't seem very slow to me)... how fast do you think your car would be if it had a slush box? Although I think a Lexus tranny wouldn't be called "slush" anything... Oh, and the price difference between a VW or an Integra or anything else people try to compare it to is for more than a badge or those taillights. Having certain ammenities or speed if fine, but that is completely different fromm how it is executed.

Apparently you were a bit irritated when some one suggested that the 1.8t was faster than your car... you beginning to see how owners on this forum can get irritated too?

Oh and by the way, a 1.8t with a chip (1.0 bar or variable boost ECU... APR,GIAC,Neuspeed, etc) will destory your precious VR6. (240 lb-ft/197hp) But the VR6 will get there smoothly, with less fuss and with better harmonic qualities. That's why I'm going to buy a Jetta VR6 for a second car.

sorry to rant again... I'm sick today.

slow engine? I think its good enough for its price range.
cheap interior? well.. i agree with that some what. I would prefer full leather seats rather than escaine.
overpriced?? definitely not overpriced. Look at Mercedes C-class, Bmw 330i , audi A4
now, those are over priced. Sure they might have lower starting price, but if you have the same amount of options included with IS300 those car would cost wayyyyyy more.

like i said before, any car that has been taken care of is a nice car, i don't care to bash anyone's car because every car has it's pros and cons, and bashing would not benefit me in anyway, does not prove anything and is as pointless as sticking a spoiler on a street car. i find it rather disturbing that ppl would spend the time and energy to come into a forum that has done nothing to them and has no reason for them to come to just to say, "your car sucks, mine is better" what does that do? make you feel better about your car? trash talking is good in games where you want a psychological advantage and throw someone off their mindset, as in football, but in football the trash talking stays on the field and coaches of rival teams have great mutual respect for each other. but cars are a whole different matter, you bought your car, you did not make it, you might have stuck a few different parts in there but you still bought the car, anyone can buy it, you talk sh't for what? all the trash talking and talk of my car is faster than yours and cheaper, yet if someone had the money to buy a pricier car, what makes you believe they can't go out and buy what you have? would you bring all you poser attitude to someone who owns a Lexus 430 or BMW 750? what happened? talking crap about honda civic, dodge neon and toyota celicas get boring? you want to prove something, bring your car to the track, go up to an owner of whatever car and start bashing them, chances are, you'd get beat in a race or beat down, thats assuming you have whatever car you say you have, you spend too much time talking sh't and not enough time enjoying your cars. my friend has an old beetle with a porsche engine, he doesn't go around talking sh't about, my car's faster blah blah...i have three other friends who have 300zx's one of whom squeezes NOS and he doesn't go around talking sh't, there will always be a someone out there who is faster, so watch your mouth, BOY.

i like the escaine better than full leather, i really appreciate them when i do the turns i do...
as per the "slow" engine..hmm...gee, it has the same engine as the SC300, the GS300, the n/a Supra, which, to my knowledge, has been taken up to 1000 hp, and run reliably, and there are numerous n/a Supra engines running 750hp daily, reliably for many years and many miles. the Honda Civic SI B16A motor maxes out at 500hp... cheap interior, hmm.. dont know about that one, plastic is plastic is plastic, i dont touch the dash board everyday, i dont sit on the cup holders, i dont care. no stick...guess you'll have to find something else to bitch and moan about next year, won't you? too expensive? as compared to what? a Honda Civic? Geo Metro? oh wait, this car is a BMW 3 series competitor, and an equally equipped Bimmer would cost at least 10,000 more, is it too high of a price because you can't afford it? you tell ppl to use the search function as if you are a member of this board, last time i checked, nobody wants you here, nobody needs you here and quite frankly, you don't belong here.
