I've been followin the Altezza for some time now and I finally got to drive the IS300 today. One conclusion...You guyz are lucky..this car is very very nice! My test car had TRD suspension and exhaust..grille..18" wheelz etc...so it looked really sweet too. I can't imagine how good hte 5 speed will be but as a M3 owner..i liked the E-shift thing...it'll be quite awesome for the track..congradulate yourselves...very nice car indeed!!
