I made the same mistake with my honda civic many years ago. I hit a curb at 40 MPH and it changed the car for good. The steering always felt crooked when driving straight and there were odd...

It didn't come across poorly at all. The entire point of this thread is to share specifics on what you paid for a 3rd generation IS. gvan1998's criticism was rather tactless and unwarranted.

I've heard! I'm glad you brought that up I had forgotten about that car :D. I'm really excited about that car. The LF-LC concept is an absolutely stunner :thumbup:

The OP is just a troll account. He signed up August 2014 and this is the first post he's made. It screams troll account.

Yeah that is indeed the problem. $375k supercars just aren't attainable by mere mortals. You pretty much have to have made many millions in a short period of time or make $1M/year+ regularly, both...

Oh, and Volvo was last. No surprise there either, I guess. I didn't even realize Volvo was considered a luxury car.
