Hi guys,

I'm not sure if this belongs here, but I needed some help with a school project that is due over the holidays for my entrepreneurship/small business ownership class -- which involves making a business plan.

Since I my parents own an IS300, and I like them very much, I decided to make a mock business that makes parts exclusively for Lexus.

The problem I have, is that I don't have primary research on Lexus related anything - and its hard to find secondary sources. I want to do well, and I couldn't think of any better way but to ask my fellow IS300 owners for some true enthusiasts responses.

So I came here with a small survey! If you could help me out by responding to it, it would be great!

Age:
Gender:
Location: Country, State/Province
Annual Salary:
How old your Lexus is:
What type of Lexus do you drive:
Have you ever bought aftermarket parts:
Do you buy aftermarket parts online? Storefront? Other (specify)
What type of aftermarket parts did you purchase? Accessories/Performance/Both?

Hopefully I get some responses.

Thank you very much if you do! You're definitely helping me out.

And lastly, does a 2003 IS300 Auto have an LSD? And are the stock tires good enough to drive in snow weather? I've been hesistant to taking it out for a spin in the snow, cause I feel that the car tends to slip quite a bit.

Thanks, it does quite a bit! The objective of this project is to make a business plan and by doing so, see if the business idea is feasible. With positive responses, I'm supposing that would mean yes... lol. Sorta biased results, but I'm sure the professor won't dock me marks for doing something like that.

I added; what type of Lexus do you drive, but I'm sure everyone will say IS300! =P

=P Thanks everyone!

It definitely helps. This section is probably the hardest. Haha, I wonder how the other students are going to handle this section. But I guess if you do stuff like flower stores, I suppose you can ask people directly.

aahh.. lol

My korean isn't great -- I'm actually chinese.

But let me try to translate this...

>> Do you have a boyfriend?

Well.. I might.. if I was a girl.. but I'm a guy. youngji short for my full chinese name. Although.. Chenji alone sounds extremely similar to Report Card in mandarin.
