Looks well. Nice colour and wheels are tidy. Why sell it after doing the work on her?

Reason to sell was relocation.
Moved to england, and it is hart to drive left hand drive here.
And damn here is only automatic IS300, mine was rare manual from US.
Thinking about Allteza but thinking its gona be less powerfull.
Really gona miss Nm.

Fair enough. Yeah a shame to get rid of a manual is300 and probably a hard enough colour to find too. You'll just have to get yourself a turbo tez or a 2jz drop!,make up for it :wink:
Best of luck with the search anyway dude.

Shame you sold as looks loads better after what you did, and being manual and an unusual colour,
power wise wouldn't be much difference as the is300 is a heavy beast having things like sunroof, electric seat's, although does have a fair amount of torque and being 6 cylinder, you'll have to have a go an altezza to see, although the triptronic is great you should have a go in one :wink:

I drove celice VVTi, Honda VTEC and even had S2000 for two moths
Altezza is like them, high revving, it feels different from 6 cilinder
So i think in emotions you get you can not compare Altezza and IS300 MT
And triptronic for me, naaa.
If you have a balls you should have 3 pedals
Its like to be a man without one leg
Sorry but its my opinion
Still think Alltezza is a best choice
