IS200 testing in the US???

Hey all -

I just saw an IS200 (yes 200) with Michigan manufacturers plates on the car in a parking lot. The car was definitely a stick but I couldn't tell if it was a 5 or 6 speed. It also had the fender mounted turn indicators (sorry - don't remember what they are really called). It didn't appear to have the tons of instrumentation that the test cars typically have but if it is just here (Arizona) for warm weather testing they don't always load em up with monitoring equipment.

I don't know if Toyota does their warm weather testing for non-US cars here or not.

i'd much rather have the 2jz motor.

I wonder why they don't do that.
