Hey every one...

The IS300 has been one of my FAV. Cars... (Since it has came out)

I hope within the next couple months to pick one up
I am looking for a Yellow or graphite and it has to be manual (if I can find one)

I kind of find this site hard to navigate;
I am looking for a general IS300 information thread
Not sure if the site has one... Just like random things about the car.
Information, things that seem to go wrong motor specs.. etc..

Just trying to do my home work on the car.

I don’t want to do to much to the car right away
But i want to find out more about boosting the car
or even dropping in a different motor such as a 2jz

Other things like Coilvers, nice exahust

some prices i have seen for the car range from 16K-20K
and yellow seems extremly hard to find.

I want to wait in till my main project car is completed.
Which is a Nissan 240sx coupe, 400WHP

Here is a old picture of the car
It has Tein Flew Coilovers, and 18in Super Advans
Blacktop TypeX Sr20det, Garrett GT2871R, 859cc sard injectors, Power FC, + lots more

its hard to find the Is you like at a dealer. Just shop around online or in mags, if yellow is the color you really want and isn't available, have it repainted, if thats the case, find an IS with some paint damage and see if the owner will give you a pain allowance.

Dude one suggestion is to do some research on this site and look for cars for sale in the For Sale forum. You mentioned that you are planning on going boost later on, well my suggestion, comming from someone who paid to have their IS boosted, is to look for a car with a Turbo/SC already installed. If you look on this site and find someone with the car you want and it's boosted then you can ask around and i'm sure anyone will help you determine if the car is in good shape and the owner took care of it.

Unless you have the money and time, or you just want to do it yourself to make sure the job is done right, you can find some pretty good deals on prior boosted IS's on this site. Even within the price range you mentioned above. In face i remember seeing a boosed yellow IS in the FOR SALE forum not too long ago in fact.
