Any IS owners in Aurora? Seems like IS are kinda rare around here hardly ever see them around (probably cause there soo bad in the snow). Just thought id be cool to see more CO members :)

I'm down in Colorado Springs and I just bought a solar yellow IS 300 that was originally from Aurora before it went to auction. Maybe you guys saw it driving around a few months ago? Hopefully it wasn't beat to crap but from the looks of everything I think it was babied. It already has Volk GT-N's in gunmetal and HKS Hipermax coilovers, sweet ride!

^^ yes unfortunately it does! I wish I could get all the original parts from that guy, but I do appreciate the wheels and suspension he traded it in with! Could you tell me anything about the owner?

I'm obsessed with it and I haven't even taken delivery yet lol. My prelude is going in for repairs on Monday, so if they finish on time I'll pick up the Lexus on Friday or Saturday. I can't wait, I've already paid for some of the stock pieces I wanted and I've sold over $700 in parts from my Prelude. I could put that money into toys for the Lexo, but to be honest I think it's perfect in stock trim. I modded the crap out of my previous 3 cars and now I've learned that there are a lot of problems associated with even simple mods. If the car wasn't everything I wanted stock I wouldn't have bought it, but like I mentioned before it has the wheels and suspension upgrades which I am actually thankful for because that's two areas where you can see huge improvements with minimal tradeoffs.

If you guys want to meet up sometime let me know!

Just wondering if anyone is interested in some aftermarket parts for their IS300, I finally took possession of the car and I'm replacing some of the aftermarket parts with OEM. Right now I have a Rod Millen Motorsports intake, clear trunk lenses, and soon I'll be parting my 18" Volk GT-N's gunmetal/polished with brand new tires.
