Default Crazy stories that you may have regarding your 3IS

I was at Target today and there were 2 teens that started taking pictures of the car as soon as I parked. I felt like I was in a photo shoot. They kept saying "dude awesome car, awesome car." I said thanks and then got back into my car and decided to go to Walmart instead.

not usually a big fan of racing on the freeway but roads were clear and this EvoX kept asking for it so I went ahead and had some fun. Thought I'd get smoked but ended up pulling away from the Evo pretty easily (4-5x).

Wouldn't call this a crazy story but I was pretty impressed how fast the car was from a 4th gear pull. Switched over from a E92 335i (blown engine ) so always felt like the car was a bit sluggish (IS350 of course).

Don't underestimate this cars pull. It's pretty aggressive.

I was going through a fast food drive through getting a drink and the guy at the window where I pay kept complimenting my car and saying how sick it looks and just going on and on about my setup asking questions. He apologized for making me wait 5 minutes while he talked and through in a large thing of fries for free. I thought it was pretty cool.

I was driving near 90 mph down the interstate last week and a Scion tC flies up beside me so they can take pics. Thumbs up all around.

I was on my way to a racing event and stopped at a red-light. There was a nice looking car on my right.

I told the guy that he has a nice car and asked him what's the retail price on one of those things. He replied "More then you can afford pal. Ferrari." He revved his engine.

It was on now. I was going to teach this guy a lesson.

Long story short, I got smoked lolol.

Yes, @ PAPI007. And yes to the IS350 being pretty aggressive! Don't underestimate your Lexus!

Another story from last night!

Stop at a light. Guy pulls over next to me in a Benz C300. Keeps revv'ing his engine. I didn't look at him and took off. Next thing you know, guy gets pulled over by a cop who was hidden behind an old factory building! LMAO Lesson taught here!
