Proven faster than an M3
By Max SPek on


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


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.

Best Features
