    Thoughts?

    I'm considering an 02-03 IS300, anybody have any personal experience with one? I'm having a hard time finding anything negative about them on the net, perhaps the gas mileage is the only consistant draw back that I've found. Not a huge deal to me though, I drive less than 10k miles a year.

    i test drove an 03 i think, whatever year they started having manual trannies...probably the best steering feel in any modern car i've driven, I was blown away. The motor seemed fine and sounded good. Needed a short shift kit though. Handling was fine, definitely on the sporty side. The only think I couldnt deal with is the gauge cluster, way too busy for me...
