Hello all,

I've been reading over this board for several weeks. I like the people here so I've decided to register. I, like most everyone here, am very interested in owning the IS.

This may sound weird, but my drive for owning the car spawns from the Playstation game Gran Turismo 2. I like driving the Altezza and the Limited Edition Altezza and I wanted to see how they drive in RL. To some of you older gents this may sound crazy but hey you only live once, right?

I'm still saving my pennies so I can buy one in the next month or two... maybe longer
I will definitely let you guys know when and where I acquire my IS. Keep me posted on all the good information regarding the IS.

Don't worry bro. You're not the only one who plays PSX GT2 on this board.=)I love that game. hehe..

I got an Silver Altezza on there, and bought everything u could possibly buy on there. I got the HP maxed to about 415BHP (with an assortment of enhancements including turbo).

I had to buy the Altezza jus to see what I could do to it, so then I would have a good idea of what to do wit my silver IS300. Sounds silly, huh? hahahhaha I dont care.

IS300Purformance,
Where do you live in Irvine?
I've seen a Silver IS in Turtle Rock, a couple of black ones on Culver and a yellow one on Jamboree a couple of times. Any of those yours?

I think $50K + a year will do.
There are alot of people at UCI that make big bucks, especially the engineers and the ICS people. I have friends that just graduated with me and are making $60,000+ w/ a bachelor degree. This is why I am heading back right now for a M.S., to learn more stuff so I can go for that magic 6 figure salary.

AltezzaRoku,

Whereabouts do you work ? I see the same yellow IS parked at that furniture store.. its slammed with chrome wheels.. if I ever wanted a yellow IS, its because of that car.. its just so clean.. but I guess they're all like that.. anyhow, I work at Newhope and Slater..

AltezzaRoku,

Yeah.. thats where I am.. I've never seen the owner of the ywllow one, but sometimes I see a GS in its place.. our CFO bought a silver IS for his son, which is away at school right now, so he drives that instead of his ES right now.. so you might see that from time to time also.. where exactly do you work ?

Also, for the record, I went to UCI too but I graduated 6 years ago..

AltezzaRoku,

Yeah.. so you probably know my little sister that I always wanted, Janie.. we'll have to go cruising once you get yours


IS300Pur,

Last time someone discussed salaries on here, TEG deleted the message.. the rules say we can't disclose that.. besides, if I told you, you'd probably drop out of school now and become a male exotic dancer.. kidding..

[From TEG: Yeah - good advice - it just gets people in a tiff worrying if they measure up... ]
