    Hey there, Looking to trade my Lexus for a Tacoma 4x4, manual trans

    2003 Lexus is300
    77,xxx miles (12x,xxx km)

    Power windows, locks, sunroof, keyless entry, heated leather seats, auto with manual shifting buttons, yellow foglights, hid headlights, 12" sub with line converter with stock deck, Magellan gps retrofitted to stock gps location, has audio in wired into stock deck, and video in to gps so you can watch dvds with a dvd player

    engine:
    2jzge vvti 3.0 inline 6, 220 hp, just changed oil with castrol syntec, cold air intake. Runs awesome, no ticks or rattles at all. Very smooth car.

    footwork:
    Megan ez street coilovers, figs engineering toe arms, steelies with brand new Hancook winters,drilled and slotted rear rotors, fresh alignment at big o in vernon a couple months ago, drives straight.

    exterior:

    I assume you're just trying to be funny. I have a 2004 IS300 SD and a 1995 Tacoma. I'm not driving my IS300 anymore in the snow, so I picked up the Tacoma for winter driving.

    Both are fun, both are well built, but the IS300 will smoke almost any car out there on the roads. You have excellent taste my friend! Are you on my.is?

    Beautiful car, good luck with the trade.

    I too have an 03 IS300 as well as an 09 IS350. Wonderful cars, built to last. It's too bad you are letting it go but whoever gets it will be the owner of a gem.

    Sounds like we've got ourselves a little Tacoma/Lexus party here!

    I had a '98 RX300, upgraded to the '04 RX330, then fell in love with the IS300, so I picked one of those up too. I need a bigger garage needless to say. Are either of you on my.is?

    I don't think you're going to have a hard time selling that IS, but trading it might be tough.

    I went there but it's not as fun as Club Lexus. A lot of my.is people are on there too so you might know a few people. :)

    Also another Tacoma/former IS300 owner. I used to have an 03'GGP and was on IS300.Net. I had alot of mods on mine, and was also one of the first members to modify IS300 Red/White tail lights (Modelista) mod and even came out with a prototype lip spoiler. Man I miss that car. Anyways good luck with the sale, certainly not the fastest car on the road, but as far as looks, comfort, and ride quality there aren't too many cars that can compare.

    Haha awesome... I just made the jump from an IS300 to a Tacoma, no regrets at all.

    I was lowered on Work wheels... whole different world now being able to take speedbumps without some ridiculous angle

    GLWS!
