Default WTB IS300 with Manual Transmission

Hello, Im looking to buy a 02-05 IS300 with a 5 speed manual transmission.. Any edition.... Regular model, special edition or even L Tuned IS300.

Im located in Los Angeles CA, and would like a local seller.... but willing to travel or purchase anywhere in the US if the vehicle is worth it

Must have:
- Black Onyx exterior, White, or Blue, but willing to consider Green or Graphite Grey Pearl...
- Stock manual transmission
- Black interior or Grey SD leather , NO TAN
- No rust

Preferably:
- non salvaged
- Stock, or little to no modifications
- No accidents

Please message me with what you got, and hopefully its a good price so we can do a quick sale.

Im a serious buyer, and a longtime Clublexus member. Been driving a few ct200's these past years, so haven't been on the forum much since i kept them mostly stock. Please don't waste my time, don't use me to test waters. Only contact if your willing to sell.

i hit him up but no text back yet. Also Iím really looking for black as first choice. But seems harder than expected, most manual IS300s are ravished and destroyed by youngsters, or salvaged... donít have time to fixed what others messed up sadly

i checked norcal and so cal and I was surprised at the lack of manual IS300s currently for sale. whenever I've looked in the past, there has always been a somewhat abundant selection.

best bet is to wait it out until the right one comes along. that is what I did waiting for a LS430 ultra luxury, I ended up finding a manual sport design IS at a dealer for a great price. good things come to those who wait!

Are you looking for something turn key or..?

I have a clean title 02' original 5 speed manual w/ LSD, blue with black leather interior. Heated seats, navigation. No sticky dash. All original matching VIN just has upgraded F-Sport rims. No. 000 on VIN on door jam

Southern California car, no rust. 255k miles timing belt water pump done 6 mo's ago, engine is leaking a bit of oil. Sometimes runs and drives great, idles smooth and quiet, other times it will idle funny and sputter a little bit. Transmission shifts super smooth, and car still pulls strong. Some clear coat peel on roof and trunk.

I bought a whole nother is300 parts car for the motor that i will throw in, it is built and is a monster. Has Megan racing headers w/ down pipe, upgraded cam gear I believe greddy. Upgraded spark plugs with STi wires. Super healthy motor, no check engine lights, still turn key ready to fire up sitting in a salvaged title 04' sport design that I have the title to and will throw into the deal as well. Doesn't leak a drop of oil. You'll hear this motor fire up and say holy ****, swap it into the manual you'll have a whole lot of power at your disposal. Located near Menifee in Southern California, will post pics some time tomorrow.

i may end up having the swap completed, or selling everything separate. I'm just going to be moving in the next month and a half and adding another member to the family in a few months. I really don't know if I'll be able to take everyrhing with me or have the time/space for it. If anyone is interested let me know.

For sure want the hear more! Im starting to give up and even began looking at is250's sadly. I want something clean but is300's are mostly beat. IS250s being newer are in better condition but sadly a ****tier generation in manual.

Has the headlight auto leveling light on the dash, no check engine. Has a tear in the drivers seat. I installed black housing headlights hoping it might fix the light, but it didn't, (still have the OEM headlights you can have.) I read more into it and it's a sensor in the wheel well that needs either adjusting or cleaning. The Headlights, high beams and fog lights all function without issue. Has a magnaflow exhaust and F-Sport rims. Engine is bone stock, but like I said it does leak a fair bit of oil. I will post the carfax later today.

And i know how big people are on numbers and production and all that, and I've seen a ton of manual is300's and they've usually been numbered in the No. 600-800 range. This is a triple 0 across the board and it's likely something you won't ever see again in a manual is300. I know people on these forums have stated manual is300's w/ navigation is a less than 5% of all production as well.

id like $6200 for both cars, or $6600 w/ F-Sport rims + tires
