Review

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 joy.The 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 already Fixed up...if your looking for a Sports car please dont pass on the IS300.


Best Features

ITS A LEXUS ...WHATS NOT TO LOVE!...the sound system ROCKS!!! Trust me i had a 2400 watt MB quarts sound system with 2 12's and this sound system still brings it.the look the feel and the performance.


Worst Features

man i just filled up my tank and it cost me 40 bucks! the gas mileage is not the best feature.needs 6 speed. could use more cargo space. could introduce diffrent color's to the dash panel.other than that its great.

Review

I have a Graphite pearl grey with a 5spd. It is great. I love the dash layout and the seats. Also the aluminum pedals and trim looks great (unlike that cheasy wood). The exterior is beautiful, I love the front end, and the Euro ligths look nice too.It handles great, and the engine picks up quick. The inline 6 is the same one that toyota put in the Supra.


Best Features

The 5sp manual ( autos are boring), the auto leveling lights, and the limited splip differential ( a must in this car, no fun without it).


Worst Features

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 9 atleast).
