Have I Made The Right Decision?


Recommended Posts

OK.....I will try to make this brief!

Expecting first child and so my Porsche Boxster is about to go up for sale. This is truly my pride and joy and the result of a dream and saving hard so feeling a bit sad at present.

However, I have for a long time loved the look of the Lexus IS range although only knew of the IS200 and it's average performance. 2 days ago I found a beautiful 22 month old IS 300 in black and bought on impulse. Drives extremely nice and perfomance OK I guess.

Question is.....have a made a good move???

Guess i need some reassurance that this was a wise move and would also be interested to know if i can increase the 211 BHP without screwing up the car???

Nice to see such forums dedicated to Lexus owners. Keep up the good work!

Not quite a Boxster but the IS is a good car. I think you have made the right choice although it depends on what you want out of a car.

As for increasing the power, all the mods. are very expensive for the 300. An intake and exhaust are the only things that do not cost the earth but only offer marginal gains in performance. Maybe you should consider strut braces and anti-roll bar upgrade to increase the cornering performance so you don't miss your Porsche too much.

You've gone from a hairdresser's car to a proper car, of course you've made the right choice ;) :lol: Just joshing.... we had a Honda Prelude before!

I bought my IS200 when my first kiddie was imminent and have really enoyed the benefits of a nice looking, fair performing car. It's a family type car without looking like one! The only gripe from a kiddie perspective is that the boot's a bit of a weird shape and it can sometimes be difficult to cram everything you need in there.

Hope you like the IS300!
