Man ever sence I got my white 01 is300
I feel other cars feel the need to impress me
Or something! I mean don't get me wrong
The is300 used to get me staring before I owned one
But never felt the need to try and rev at them with
My less powerfull nissan 240sx.......
So I'm at a light guy looks at me bumping with the sunroof
Open enjoying the breeze and he tries to ruin it by reving his engine
He takes off at a less them impressing speed just to get pulled over 6 seconds later
Hahaha fail!

what's the retail on one of those?
Probably more than his IS300 is worth. That is not the point though....

Seriously dude....there are but a handful of IS300's that would impress anyone. I highly doubt yours is one of them. Please stop bragging about having a $6k lexus. Have a nice day.

^to each their own but I know the IS300 does impress people regardless of price.

I went to a meet this summer with RX7's, Skylines, Supra, M3's, etc and this dude pointed out my car and said "That IS300 is gorgeous, it's my dream car" not knowing that I was part of the circle's conversation haha. I thought it was pretty funny because he was driving around in a new VW Beatle which is more expensive than my "OLD" IS300.

You never know, one man's garbage, is another man's treasure.

I guess its about experience man. In my experience, it does not impress many. Sure you may get a "nice IS300" thrown around now and then but nothing like trying to "measure up" to it. These days those who dream of an IS300 can get one, unless they are like 1 years old......and btw dont get me wrong....im keeping mine forever. Its been 7 years and running strong!!!

Ya well around my city people have given me looks and nods
I'm not trying to come off as a tool or jerk I was simply trying to explain
What had happend to me recently, there are people out there with their
2012 cars but that's just something I can't afford anytime soon sence I'm
Only 21 and have a average job but I felt realy proud going from my first
Run down 240sx to this car I felt proud but noticed a lot of people that
Have cars like civics or my 240 feel the need to try and
Impress like they ha e little dick syndrom.
But anyhow I also disagree.....I'd say the is300 is one of my all time favorites
And would prefer it over many cars twice the price

I'm not bragging at all nor did I mean to come off cocky
Just more of me mentioning that this dude that got pulled over was stupid for
Trying to act like I'm threatening his manhood because my car is a little
Nicer then his. But eh to each his own perhaps you like the civic a little more

One reason I have always loved these forums is because you can get on here and have an intelligent discussion using dyno figures, engineering knowledge, etc with people who eloquently state their opinions and points of view while being accepting of new members and people new to modding cars. And you can always tell when someone joins the community from a 240, civic, integra forum lol

Just because the IS300 is getting old doesn't make it any less appealing, especially to those that appreciate cars. Perfect size, timeless styling (subjective, of course), RWD, tunable straight 6, great chassis, etc.. the car has a lot going for it.

No need to judge folk's car based on market value..

I know how you feel bro.
As soon as I had my full Wald Kit on, I had an EVO pull up next to me.
Ask if I was boosted.
I shrugged and said Idk.
He pulled off at the light just to get pulled over by an undercover.
I flashed my hazards as I passed.

I'm a tool =)


But alas, now I'm in an RSX Type-S.
But I still get Civics and junk asking me to race. =\
No bueno.

Hence me saying I owned a 240....
