It's the slowest car ever made, in fact if you pop the hood there are 2 hamsters running in there, when you drive normally only one is running, then when you floor it the one called "vvti" starts running also.

If you bought the car "cuz it's a lexus" then you bought it for the wrong reason. Buy the car because you like it. If a Ferrari looked like a Yugo with a big spoiler would you still buy it? If you said "yes" then you are buying it for the wrong reason. Buy a car because you like it, not because it has a marque on it that you think will get you attention.

:lol:

Wait, he should by a POS Cobra, race it once or twice, and then start complaining about all the problems he's got. Then, and only then will he appreciate the quality and reliability that goes into our cars.

You buy an IS300, because it's sexy and reliable. If you really had an LS and 55 AMG, you wouldn't be raising this topic :shame:

Wouldn't it have made some sense if you actually did some research on the car before buying it, and notice that it only has 215 HP. How fast did you think it was going to be? Just because a car costs more $ doesn't mean its automatically going to be faster.

1. I bought my IS 300 because it's slow and that way I don't get so many speeding tickets.

2. I bought my Is 300 because those big ole Lexus emblems strike jealousy in the hearts of other drivers.

3. But I really bought my IS 300 because once I drove it, I just lusted for it.

I was wondering why the little brown pellets drop out from under my hood after a high speed run. :lol:

If you have a CLK55, nice, if not you can use my 430 from my pics and photoshop a 55 on it and use it as your 55. Then more peeps will believe you.
Why would you go out and buy a Cobra if you have a 55 in the garage?

aight guys dont get so defensive. I bought the IS300 cause it is really nice and handles extremely well. I'm just saying that compared to other cars now, its engine is weak. The LS430 is my wifes and the CLK55 is my weekend car so I can't drive that to work n stuff. The point i was trying to make is that IS300s need some more power from the factory, when "family" sedans are pushing 240+hp.

And yet, u have to remember the IS300 came out back in 2000. When most family car was below or around 200HP.

The new model won't be out till early 2005. If you want something with more power, obviously, you haven't done your homework when you purchased the car.

Either post pics of your so called "weekend car" and your biatches ride or you'll get no respect around here ! :shame:

We do not like MOFO's who talk smack and then can't even back it up. :bitching:

We are not ricers, nor muscle heads that shoot the shiet. Therefore if you wanna deal with intellectuals, show some maturity and show what you got.
