Got My Dream car!

My mom bought a 2003 Lexus IS 300 5 speed, the car is absolutely amazing, its black with gunmetal emblems with awesome 17" lexus rims, the Celica and the IS300 have always been my 2 favorite cars so im in heaven! Theres not too many things i really want to do to it besides exhaust, Intake Clear Corners... theres an awesome supercharger that makes 450+hp and its only about 4000. Just thought I'd share, ill post pics as soon as I can get my friends Digital camera!! What do you guys think of the IS? grin grin

God I hope not. thatsfunny

At any rate, glad you have one in the family. Personally, I'd be less excited if my parents bought a car I really wanted... just because I wouldn't feel like it was "mine". I'm weird though spineyes

If I were you, I'd just work on some audio/video mods. That car already handles so well and looks so nice... it'd be cheezy to lower it or slap on chrome rims or something.

Eh, let the kid like what he likes. None of the cars I really want cost over $35-40k. Unless you are some sort of speed fanatic (yeah most of us are tongue), most cars over that price are nothing but status symbols.

true, ferrari (as well as other exotics) are 'status symbols' but the reason they became status symbols is because they are also symoblic of power and handling--NOT just because the cost an extravagent amount of $$ and have a horse,bull,shield logo thumbsup

450+bph with just a supercharger? wtf I dunno..

Guys, he said his mom bought the IS300 and it's her car, but it's one of his dream cars.

In my family I bought my mom her "dream" car. Which would be the red Panasonic Edition Celica GTS.

My step dad got a nice camry, but I've only driven it once in the past year. I am glad you got it, but I don't think our parents would appreciate our "seeing what the car can do" tactics. My car is treated much differently than my parents' cars.

Those who knew me, knew me well.
For those who don't, can go to hell.
