Yea IS300's are nice, but the aftermarket turbos for them make them pretty sick.

I don't the IS's too much, I like the fact that they are RWD though.

Those IS's are nice cars- Lexus' attempt to compete w/ the 3-series...

The good thing about that car is that it's a Toyota deep down- which implies (I think) that the engine is bulletproof, hence easily and somewhat risk-freely FI'd.

My bro has an SC400- when they were in R&D with the V8 for it, it was putting out something like 600 hp. But they tuned it down to 300 or so so that the engine would run forever.

Doesn't the IS 300 have same engine as the N/A Supra.. I think a little detuned though. So yea...it's gonna be strong.

I got with an IS300 and I didnt plan on even racing as I just got Starbucks and I have to hold it in one hand or I will dump it (damn cup holders). He jumped off the light by a car length launch and I just rolled out but I leaned in and caught up and pulled up on him and started to edge him before I backed out. He wasnt impressed as I tipped my Starbucks cup at him as I grin with pride.
