ALL:
WOW, had the car for almost 2 months and I'm absolutley impressed by this car. It feels quicker then the rest. It corners without a mess. It brakes like the best... And it can be had for less!! (hey that rhymes...yeah yeah don't quit your day job) Less then your comparative BMW's, Audi's, and MB's. It's fresh on the market and a different flavor then your average European Sports Sedans and it's a step up from your average imports.

I'm not a racer, but the car certainly feels like one. But then again I have room for a wife and family to tow around so the 4 doors was more then welcomed.

I think the tail lights are awesome. The body's lines are beautiful, the interior is perfect. The guage cluster is unique. And the shifter and pedals are a nice touch.

I love my IS300 and I feel that I can take on the world with it! I can't get enough of the car, I just want to drive around in it all day.

Foes...if you hate this car...I respect you too, thank you for coming, and have a nice day.

Friends...if you love your IS300, post your love here and list what you absolutley love about this wonderful car.

of coarse...IMHO

I just had to spread some IS300 love!

Spread the love baby! I'm Feeling it here too. Just got my car for a few days (140Miles) so haven't had a chance to push it.

some initial thoughts...

I love the Interior. It's sporty interior design matches the sporty lines on the outside perfectly.

The more I look at the black escaine interior, the more I think It looks better than if it would have looked if it had full leather. The slight difference in color between the two leathers removes the monotony of just plain black.

The foot pedal rubber plugs are a little slippery. why didn't they use a softer rubber?

Love the HID and fog lights, lights up the road like nothing else. Is it possible to just use the fog lights?

Well I don't have a IS300 yet, but I'm waiting for the manual to come out next summer. But from my first impression of the testdrive on the automatic edition, I totally loved the experience which is why this car is a definite buy for me when the manuals come out. SUPER YELLOW~~~~

Right on, mrclam.


BTW, wazzup and others, I'm glad you're enjoying your ISs. It sure is a great car. Can't wait for the manual version next year.

I can't say it better than he did. I have about 3K on mine and though it is not fast, but it is quick I love my IS also. The int is great. You don't slide around much taking hard turns. I didn't buy the IS for speed (As some people say, thats why i kept my turbo Crx), but for the looks and luxury. But all in all it is a great paltform to build upon...
