I assume that I was one of the targetted subjects of this thread.
Every other post or reply you'll find someone talking about how fast and cheap the CL-S is, or how an Integra Type-R or M3 handles better, or how some other totally unrelated car beats the pants off the slow, expensive, and forget-me styled IS300.
I only speak of the CL Type-S when 1. the topic is about a CL Type-S (as in the 3 or 4 topics that read: "IS300 vs CL Type S") or 2. When someone else brings it up in the middle of a thread, either asking a question or outright dissing it with incorrect so called facts.
If you remember, which I do quite well, Italia's "who has raced their IS300?" thread, HE
brought up the IS300 vs Type R comparison for the first time. I don't think that anyone before that had even mentioned the Type R. (Except for Bananie in her Signature as being a previous owner of such a car, two if memory serves correctly)
So the whole Type R debate was brought up by an IS300 owner.
Not any flame-starting UBB troll who doesn't own a lexus as some ppl were lead to believe.
And do you know how I responded to that? (almost the very next post) - by saying the Integra Type R will soundly beat the IS in just about every category, from straight line to cornering. And its a fact proven by 0-60, 1/4 mile, lateral g's, and slalom.
I don't see how that's inflammatory.
Am I the only one that sees that many posters don't own an IS nor do they plan on purchasing one?
So are you saying that a board member who does not own an IS or intend to own one, has no business here?
I'm a member of clubsi, is300, supraforums, newcelica, acura-cl, and no one else seems to complain, and I've been at those other boards longer than I have here...
Just chalk it up to envy!
I'm with TEG...they all envy the car
Exactly,Jealousy. I agree with you 100%....
Oops where did that come from, I wouldn't happen to drive that everyday, god forbid I be ashamed of such an ugly car far inferior to the IS. I'm just sooo jealous of all your IS300's.
Really though guys... Can't I come here to learn about IS's, offer you a different perspective of the near luxury market, after hanging around the Supra guys quite a bit, I've got a bit of 2jz-gte in me, if you can tell me how I've instigated an unnecessary fight or inflammatory thread with anyone, and prove it was uncalled for and was caused my immature behavior on my part, then I'll leave. But if you check the archives, I've answered ppl's questions, and offered my opinion. Not flammed unnecessarily.
