To everyone buying this car:

Drive this car like you hate it. This is not a Camry, this is a performance car.
Do not be afraid to squeal the tires.
Do not be afraid to take a turn a little too fast. Do not be one of these middle-aged men in their Corvettes afraid to push the accelerator pedal.

If you're not going to drive this car like a performance car, DON'T buy it.

What the hell are you talking about?? Thats what the peroid of 500-1000 miles is for, after that it will get old (the new car syndrome), and ill be laughing as i see your IS smoking out the pipe with bald tires as you slide off the road and total the car. I can see it now, and ill also laugh as you get burned by that man in the corvette....because there is no comparison.

Are you on crack? This is a performance car,
it's built to be pushed to the limits.
I guess you're the one they built the automatic for. Also, I'm not saying you can compete with Corvettes. I'm just saying you should have fun in this car, not drive it like Grandma drives a Buick.

True, this is a performance car, but it doesn't means you need push it to the limit every chance you get. People you see driving their cars slowly may be better drivers than you think. For me, I will drive it everyday like I'm driving a Camry, nice an easy. Laugh if we will, but street light races don't impress me. It's just showing off. When I want to have fun, I'll take it to the canyon roads or the track. This car's performance needs to impress only me, not who's around me. The car's good looks will do that.

I would refrase it to Drive it like you stole it!

I did that with my rental RX 330 today WOOT WOOT! Fun but be safe dont do it around heavy traffic areas. I used to, now i have become more conservative when driving.

Maybe at night on my way home from a friends house ill take it to a country road and let it take some turns. It always fun to find a vacant like road you may never see a cop on!
