Well I guess first off I should introduce myself. My name is Missy, im from Jacksonville FL and I just bought an IS300 last night!! I've wanted one for about a year now, and my dad finally came through! Im so incredibly excited, although i wont get to drive it home until next week. It wont be at his dealership till tonight, but i cannot wait to see it! Its pearl white, on aftermarket 18s(which is scary i hope they arent toooo taky, prob will replace them anyways) Im sooooo excited!! Cant wait to get started on performance.......anyways just wanted to introduce myself and i look forward to chating with you guys!!!
oh and any ideas on what i should do first feel free to pipe in! i appreciate all the ideas i can get......

welcome to dot net :) my advice would be to learn how the car handles and performs. Its like a getting to know each other relationship phase, learn the limits of the car and adapt your driving style to its characteristics and go from there. If you feel you need more power, there is IHE. If you need more handling, there are a ton of suspension upgrades. Taste the food before you add any more salt and pepper , that's my .02. Happy moddin'

welcome and congrats on the purchase.

You might want to go introduce yourself in the "south" forum, which is where all the FL regulars hang out. Add yourself to the member list there...

the FL bunch is pretty active when it comes to meets and the likes... I'm sure you will meet them at some point, and they can give you better insight on what you could do with your car.

In the mean time, post some pics , of both your car , and yourself in it!

And enjoy the ride! its always fun getting into this car, and I almost always find myself turning around to look at it when I park it. :)

I agree, I didnt buy a ricer for a reason!! haha, all my money will go under the hood, of course besides a system, wheels, and dropping it. I believe its already tinted out, but like i said, I gotta see what Im working with first!

like was said before, enojy the car and learn how it drives and handles first...if you're serious about the work under the hood, then I would suggest save your money on the NA mods and just get boosted!!! It's a greeat feeling haha. Anyway good luck with the car, I am in Boca Raton, and you should definitely come out to the meet in orlando, it's going to be huge!

Nice! Welcome aboard. What year is it? Mileage? Automatic? Stick? Lets get some details if you know them.

Looking forward to seeing some pics of it when you pick her up.... oh by the way, you are more than welcome to post pics of you posing w/ the car... that'd be a nice way to show us how you're getting along w/ the car :)

Good luck. I'm sure you'll love it. The Pearl White is sooooo nice but you have to keep it clean!
