Stand Out, Drive Sideways
Drifting is a new phenomenon, but it didn't take long for the IS 300 to be absorbed into the culture. It's a fairly accessible, rear wheel drive platform which makes it ideal for constant repair work that drifters have to make. But fixing and IS 300 is still expensive, which is why sometimes drifters get a little... creative.
Dings, dents, and busted body work are something like badges of honor. Busted fender? Eh, just stitch it up with zip-ties. Hit a wall sideways? Don't worry, just JB weld your mirrors back on. As long as you can still drive, you're good. That diy ethos and style is part of why drifting is so popular.
Also, it's really fun.
