I posted this before,and got no responce,ive seen about 4 IS's total in my area,just wondering if anyone who has one reads this board or if any other people have um who i havent seen and are in Atlanta, thanks cole
Doesn't seem like there's half as many ISs here in Atlanta as their are in SoCal. I've only seen maybe 5 in the last 6 months too.
I know of at least one other besides myself here in ATL, donerb is his name on this board. He lives in Brookhaven. I've been chatting with him via email. He already has a black one he got from JM Lexus.
My wife and I are about two weeks away from buying an IS. I'm out in Lawrenceville. Where are you? Did you buy one here in the Hotlanta area?
Hey guys, I am in Norcross,its over in Gwinnett, I got mine from Hennessy Lexus of Gwinnett, a solar yellow ,ive seen a silver one around gwinnett mall and then an the blue one pulling into my neighborhood,any of yall interested in getting your friends with them and others to start an IS club?
9 days isn't so bad. I may give them a try, but I'm gonna take a shot at JM Lexus in Fl and a couple other via email first. Thanks for the info.
I'm not sure I'm interested in starting a club, but wouldn't mind meeting the rest of Atlanta owners at an event of some kind. Malibu racing perhaps? Or that drag racing place up 75? Just a thought....although it seems we may have a tough time getting a crowd.
Kompressor, is there a particular reason why you're aiming at 2.5% over invoice? From what I've read, there is a lot of regional variation in how much dealers are letting IS300's go for. It seems in TX they are going for invoice, and in SoCal the dealers are asking (and getting) MSRP.
I spoke with a dealer at Nalley's and told him of the offer from Hennessy. He said he would match it, but he really didn't sound happy about it. In fact, he assumed that the 29.8K didn't include some $187 fee that they all charge. It turned out that it did (so I guess you could say I got an offer of 29.6K). The claim from Nalley was that Hennessy wouldn't give me as much as they would for my trade-in (a '96 Contour SE w/ 110K miles). I got the car appraised at CarMax, and indeed Hennessy offered $1000 less than CarMax. They wouldn't even match the figure when I told them about it. So I'm selling my car to CarMax instead of trading it in.

I figure 2.5% is as good as place to start as any. The beauty of the internet is that you can shop by region. And in reading this board 32K seems to be the going rate. I may try TN, or SC, but I'll focus on FL and GA until I get the offer I'm looking for. Someone's bound to be looking to clear them off the lot, and 2001s will be old news in 6 months. We have time, and that's always a plus.
I'm glad you mentioned Carmax. We plan on selling my wifes car ourselves, but if all else fails and nobody buys, we'll try them. The last thing I want to do is lose a $1000 to a dealer. It sounds like Carmax gave you a fair deal.
Our track club is going to be in Sav., GA this coming weekend. We rented Roebling Road to have our track event. We have 3 IS300's coming. Would love to see some of you there. I'll be in the Solar Yellow. The event is both SAT. and SUN.
