i dont own a IS300 but im thinking of getting one. but i cant decide between and Acura RSX type-s or an is300(manual trans. on both) I need help on choosing. is an IS300 worth buying? I heard that the IS300 is costly to maintain, is this true?

Get the IS.

The prices aren't too far off....fully loaded rsx type-s about 27-29,000 and a 5spd IS300 is about 29-32,000.

I test drove the rsx and the one problem i had was the road noise. It felt so cheap when I shut the door and drove off. When you shut the door in the IS, its a solid feel and it feels nice inside. Not to mention...the IS is a sedan which allows for a more comfortable ride for your friends.

RWD is worth it. It was the determining factor for the first IS I bought.

never test drove the RSX cause it didnt meet two of my requirements.

1) RWD
2) has torque

If those are on your list, cross the RSX off your list

IS all the way bro...It has the potential to be faster than RSX if you wanna speed.

peace- don't confused yourself between the two!
