I just bought a 2004 Lexus IS300 5
speed manual. let me tell you that
this car is like a rollercoaster every
time i get in. My last car was a 95
acura integra that was hooked up!...it
had everything...it was my pride and
IS300 has the Luxury and the sport
capability that i once owned. i made a
great choice in purchasing this
IS300.The IS300 has way more to offer.
I LOVE THIS CAR!!!I can still keep the
speed and Sporty-ness and still be
looked at as the young adult. I dont
even want to fix up this IS300....its

exterior is beautiful, I love the
front end, and the Euro ligths look

the same one that toyota put in the
The 5sp manual ( autos are boring),
the auto leveling lights, and the
limited splip differential ( a must in
this car, no fun without it).
It needs more low end torque,that
would really help drop the 0-60.
Toyota should put a turbo on like the
Supra had and have this baby making
320hp! Then she would be fast. ALSO,
put on some wider tires on(I think
they are 7 inches wide, they should be
