My salesman told me the same thing butI still babied mine for the first 1,000 miles.

Enjoy it and be careful!
CONGRADS!!!! .. I got the same color .. and I love it .. It's hard to keep shinny and clean .. but a nice Wax will fix that! .. Enjoy the ride .. I have 240 Miles on it, and it has only been a week today. Enjoy it! ..Be safe!!!

I just got my IS300 today... black/black. The handling is awesome! You can't drive slow on this car...especially if you got a heavy foot like mine...

i also traded in my M3 for an IS300. but i cant agree with you that M3's resale value sucks.
i had $19,300 for my m3 payoff, but resale value for my m3 was $18,300....
So, i had to pay for $1000 from my pocket..
it was 1997 BMW M3 and 52,300 miles on it..
Congrats.......but it makes me mad, I still waiting to get mine

Welcome to this disfunctional family we call

Don't worry about the language crack my first language was spanish not english and more than half of us on this board can't spell worth a crap including me.

What year was your M3????
4dr or 2dr???????
How many miles????????

What are you planning for your IS?
Show, Race, Competition????

Anyways I hope that you enjoy your IS and drive safely we wouldn't want you to hurt the car.
(or yourself)
