2001 BLACK ON BLACK IS300!!!!!!!!!!!!!! FULLY LOADED!!!!!!!!!! I CAN'T STROP DRIVING IT I LOVE IT SO MUCH!


My dad has been calling me all day talking about today we are just going to look for cars today .. he's telling me that we are going to look at Kias and Hyndias (SP), I'm all telling him on the phone NOOOO I want the IS .. he said "theres no black on blacks, and you don't want to wait", so he said that we would go look at this used GEO .. lol again I was all noooo. So he picks me up, I'm thinking we are going to look at some used old shi-t cars, we get into Concord .. he says "well, lets go to Lexus they have some nice used cars there I saw", So I said "DAD I DONT WANT NOTHING BUT THE LEXUS", so we get to Concord Lexus, we pull in and I say "Dad, lets look around the lot for a black on black IS ..", THERE IS NO BLACK ON BLACK IS ON THE LOT! .. I'M PISSED , because earlier I had called Concord lexus to see if they had any black on black IS300's, and they said "THEY ONLY HAD ONE", so I said .. cool, we will get over there just in time before someone else gets it .. so we walk around the lot .. I'm sad cause theres no Black on black, this delear comes out and says Hi my name Is mike, my dad says we are in the martket for a black on black fully loaded IS", the delear says "theres no black on blacks around in the Bay area, we ordered them and will get them in in about two or more months", I began to get mad and I say "TWO MONTHS"!!!!! the delear says "come in maybe we can locate one around somewhere" .. we walk inside and in the middle of the showroom is a NEW BLACK ON BLACK IS300 WITH BALLOONS AND IT HAS WRITTEN ON THE CAR "HAPPY 16TH. BIRTHDAY GINO!!!!!!!" I BEGAN TO SHOUT IN THE SHOW ROOM .. OMG THIS CAR IS MY CAR .. OMG OMG OMG .. everyone starts to laugh because they had this all planed my dad bought the car two days ago .. the car arived from another delarship around Blackhalk! ... I WAS SO SUPRISSED .. AFTER HUGGIN MY DAD FOR LIKE AN HOUR I GET INTO THE CAR AND JUST EXHALE WITH A SIGN OF RELEAF .. I FINALLY GOT IT! .. Concord Lexus was great! .. they have me key chains showed me all aobut the car .. I will always work with Concord Lexus, what great people they have there! .. I still can't believe I have .. boy, can that car drive! .. and the sound system .. WHEW!!!!! GREAT!!!!!!! My car now has 98 miles on it because I have been driving it .. I LOVE IT .. I LOVE MY PARENTS FOR IT .. and Cocnrod lexusfor keeping it a surprise and playing it off as good as they did!

Question:


Are you supposed to be really EXTRA easy on the car , brakes .. gas .. because you want to break the car in? How many miles do you have to do this? Tonight, I kinda pressed on the gas a few times to see how fast it went and stuff (not hella fast ..just like 75, 80) .. because I did this a few times will it hurt the car? From now on Im going to be extra carefull .. only going 65 .. not more over (even thought your going 80 and you ont realize its going that fast) .. omg the car is so quiet! .. The sound is so good!!!!! OMG .. I cant stop gonig on and on about my car .. I love it to death!!!!! we got a nice car cover also from lexus, my dad got me a 300.00 bag full of towles, polish, windex, tire wax .. its great! .. he got my this good duster .. and hella more stuff .. i love my car and right now i feel like driving it but its late .. so im gonna have to wait till the morning ...

BoYiE:
You must have wonderfull parents. You must be really blessed for getting the IS300.

My first car was a 1974 Datsun 710 (looked like a bumblebee) during the first quarter of American High School. The next year the bumblebee broke down and borrowed and my bro's mitsu mini truck. Later on, in jan of 1992, my parents bought me my Honda Civic Si black on black/grey for being an obedient child and always get excellent grades. I love my first brand new car. i know how you feel, except for the thing that your dad planned with concord lexus.

anyways, congradulations. hope you have alot of $$ for gas
because you said that you like to drive around alot. drive carefully and watch out for those people who dont signal on the roads and they switch lanes. be safe...

-Jason...

Another satisfied customer, "oh what a feeling". Congrats on the new car and treat her well.
Your parents are exceptionally nice, not many 16 year olds driving a 32,000 car.

Oh,and be careful around your PEER groups, they maybe jealous and they might try to vandalize the car. Keep her on the road and in the garage.

Congrats to ya Boyie...

enjoy it, but don't go around school and act bad ass...even though you are
because you probably do have the best car at school. And do be careful and jealous guys, so keep it under wraps. We all hope nothing happens to your car so that you can enjoy it to its fullest.
