Here's another useless thread for you.

So I tell my friends, "I've finally decided on which car to get... Lexus IS300." And in nearly all cases, they do a double take and yell "Lexus? Isn't that for old people?"

Judging by "How old is everyone?" thread, I bet I am not the only one who gets this sort of reaction.

At any rate, I immediately point them to web sites (including IS300.net, of course), and most immediately say, "aaahh!"


P.S. What is "I" in IS stand for?

This is a question included in the "Lexus IS 300 Q & A" section of the Press Release :

Q : What does IS stand for ?
A: There's no specific definitiion, but we consider the IS 300 to be international, individualistic and athletic.

Yes - my sports car friends freak out when I say that I am buying a Lexus.

At first I thought IS300 meant
"Inline-Six, 3 Liters"
or "Inexpensive Sedan"
but Bernie straightened me out.
