2001 Lexus IS 300 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)

Review

No regrets other than not holding out for the manual transmission. with no upgrades 0-60 is 6.35 on mine, which edges out my friends stick M3 from 1999 by about a second. The best part is, it goes way faster than the Beemer, 165 MPH and the doors start opening up with vacuum pressure so i didnt try to go any faster. The A/C is automatic contrary to the editors beliefs and if anything feels like a corolla its the little twitchy German crap buttons on the M that require you to carry a set of pencils to press accurately.

Favorite Features

Speed, pedal response, Dealer service = 100% oilchanges + loaner cars for anything over an hour

Suggested Improvements

MPG, standard DVD navs
