Obviously this is for those who have had more than ONE.

I've had two and even though my current CW is far better than my first MSM car ('01 with no options V/S '02 with all options except factory nav), I still love my first IS300 more than my second one. I don't know if it is just because it was my first and it was new and exciting, or what the deal is. All I know is that I had a bond with my first IS300 that I don't have with my second one.

For those that have had multiple IS300's, which one was your favorite?

Ive had 2 of them in the last 2 months. Bought a automatic black '02 and found a '02 GGP with Manual so i bought it and sold the black one. Couldn't stand to drive a auto in a car that could be so much fun! :)

I'm on my 3rd (technically) ...

Initially, I had a silver 02 back in 2002 but for whatever reason financing didn't go through. It's ok, I put about 3k miles on it before I had to give it back haha

IMMEDIATELY after that, i got a pearl white 01 ... and missed it from the day I sold it :(



so a couple weeks ago, I got me a new (to me) one ... just put in the springs and got the rims a few days ago



:)

Hard to get away from them, isn't it? You can enjoy other things for a while, but you always end up thinking of the IS3. I thought about mine for a couple years and got rid of a much nicer Mercedes because there is only one ay to enjoy an IS3 and that's to have one.

This is my second..see sig. I'm biased to the first, I liked that one much better. Even though they are both the same color, year and I even took out the seats and put it in this one, it still doesn't feel the same...lol.

See, I've been saying this all along. You guys that are on your first IS3 enjoy it, because no others will ever be the same. After a year (as of last month) with my newest IS3 I'm TRYING to warm up to it a little now, but it has nothing on my old IS3.

I have had two, an IS200 sedan and now an IS300 SX. They are both great cars!
The SX has more power and is more practical (when you have kids...) but the IS200 is the first IS and will always stay that....it makes a car special to be the first....

First 03 silver 5spd,nav,lsd,heated seats,full leather, polished allowys bout in 05.
I settled for silver becuase i could not find the GGP 5spd manual with full leather after looking for 6 months.
Then 09 at a honda dealership!!! I find a GGP 5spd,Nav,LSD,Full Leather, but with 35,000 more miles. I Couldn't freaking believer it!! I ended up trading it!!! lol i need to post pics..
