Alright first time poster i just found the message board a few days ago and damn i love this place . Neways i am only 18 going into my first year of college but i plan to get an is300 sometime in the spring. I will be going to UIC in chicago so i dont want a new car due to the crazy winters we can have up here.. neways i was curious what you guys think about buying a used is300?? i will be making about 25 dollars an hour for maybe 6 - 8 hours a day after i get out of school so i think i will be able to keep up with the payments on the car, and as long as im getting good grades my parents wont mind helping me a bit if i cant keep up with payments... but neways! i really wanna know if there is any reason not to buy a used is300? i was thinkin about getting a use 2001 manual trans not sure on color really but i think i would save alot of money this way... any opinions or experiences? thanks for any replies, and yeah i know im a newb :-?
