& I would like to thank steve &Tony, & just about all o' y'all here for your support & info & general obsession with this car.... :D

I was SOLD on a '99 e36 BMW M3 & i was actually going to buy it that fateful night (one year ago last night ) when the guy with the car had a late day at the office & had to cancel our meeting on the car....

I happened to stop by an old friends house & discovered he was the Sales Mgr at a Local Lexus Dealer :eek: ... I have known this guy for over 20 years & he's been in the car biz for at least 15 of that..... & even he was kinda trippin that i'd never asked him to help me with any car stuff... so I TELL him to hook me up on the Is in a 5 speed, & he says NO PROBLEM come by tomorrow....... less than 24 hours later i was driving my beautiful brand new IS300 home from the dealership with a HUGE shitteating grin on my face... this was a BIG Bday present to myself last year & ( my Bday is tomorrow....) I am still happy as a pig in fresh shitt :crazy:

I had never bought a brand new car before & this was the 1st...


The night before when i told him what i was interested in & he said it would be no sweat, so i ended up spending most of the night & virtually all the next day at the office looking over Is300forum.com, & Colorado Lexus club.com & etc etc untill i found IS300.net & I spent at least 5 hours straight making sure i was making the right decision... all your posts & info on this site GREATLY helped me be confident that this was my 1st brand new car....i read up on EVERYTHING i could mods issues recalls performance suspensdsion... .body kits accessories etc etc etc....learned so much i was chomping at the BIT when i drove it home to mod it......

i registered with the site two days later & here I am now 362 days after that day with 2100+ posts & many new friends....

it has been a pretty great year of ownership ... no problems to speak of with the car at all, & i am really happy & satisfied with that...
..my car still looks brand new & actually much better than it did when i drove it off the lot, I love it more each time I drive it


so again thanks to all you all who have provided so much guidance & clear & concise info about these cars & the fun we can have with them!!!
feels like i've only JUST begun.... :D


Special thanks go out to

Happy IS 300 day, mine was one year ago too(8-20-02). I love the car. I actually put money down on an Acura RSX, but my wife said to get a sedan. I drove the Lexus and canceled the RSX. Smart wife! Happy B'day.

Hey bitch, you better thank me too! I was the one talking to you at your first Lexotic meet when everyone left. Oh wait, they left me too, nevermind.

It's hard to believe that all the gripes and complaining started one year ago and now you are all grown up :whine:




Just kidding bro. :D
