IS300 and if you have 30k to mod it, you can beat a million-dollar McLaren F1, no kidding. The PFS IS300: 11.09 s @132.59 mph. That's family. thumbsup thumbsup

and the Celica GTS can get in the 11's too for 30k, but a few haters on here think that is impossible.

LOL...whelp I'm kinda bias on this topic...since I own an IS 300...that I love...I would definitely say an IS 300. I'm starting to look around at what modifications I'm going to do to it... grin

And IS300.NET is an awesome site...I'm a member over there...under the name Burnt IS. And like was said above there are quite a few cars on that forum with around 450 hp. There is also an IS that has 600rwhp...so there is a lot that you can do to the IS. Even though if you plan on turboeing it, you might want to have about $10000 to spare... thumbsup

Anyway, good luck with whatever car you choose... thumbsup
