    Right now I have a 1993 bmw 325i, 170,000 miles on it. I just got it out of the shop and repairs were around 3 grand. Mechanic said I could probably get 100,000 more miles out of it but I don't want to risk it. I can sell it now and get my doe back plus a down payment on another car.

    I'm looking at an 02-03 Lexus IS300, anyone know much about these cars? I've heard good things about them.

    I wanted to get a black one, put a dope body kit on it, tint, and some 18-19 inch rims.

    yeah, I like them and they're priced pretty well...

    but if i had the money to spend on one, i'd get a new wrx instead...or g35

    plenty of options in that price-range. G35 would top my list.

    G35 are pretty dope, remind me too much of the lexus gs 300's though, and I don't like that round body style really, and I wouldn't be caught dead in an wrx lol, they look goofy as hell to me.

    I'm either gonna get a 2000-2001 bmw 330 or another 325 OR a lexus IS300. I might look more into these G35's though, thanks for the mention, I didn't even pay much attention to them before.

    G35 COUPE.. easy... the IS300 is ehhh.. unless you have one like my best friend. TT IS300 540rwhp, w/HRE's...hmmmm butta.

    But besides that, stock, shitty gas mileage, decent handling, not a great bang for the buck.

    Sorry tigre, you bombed on that one...

    g35 = 14.6 in the 1/4 mile off the lot.

    wrx sti = 13.2 off the lot.


    It's not often you're wrong about these types of things, but it just happened.

    LOL... come on.. you said WRX, not STI

    And the G35 coupe runs 14.1 the auto runs 14.6.

    So therefore, mark up another one for the Tigre :D

    well, it'd only make sense to get the sti, considering it's in the g35's pricerange....since we're comparing.
