    Raced an IS300 today...

    So I was driving home from work and I came up to a stoplight, front row. One left turn only lane, two straight lanes, and one right turn ONLY lane. As I'm waiting for the light to turn, this silver IS with tinted windows pulls up next to me, I could tell he wasn't turning right, so I fiugured I'd see if he wants to race. The light turns green and I didn't launch, but I heard him rev up his engine and take off, gets maybe half a car on me as I floor it, we go up to about 80-90 before i shut down because traffic was coming up. Instead of slowing down with a car coming up in front of him, he swerves onto the breakdown lane to pass a guy in front of him and do a fly by....

    So up at the next light I notice he's hanging back a bit, I pulled up next to him and gave him a thumbs up, I like IS's, they're nice cars. So he rolls down his window, starts yelling at me
    "What, you got a problem!?! PULL OVER I'll Beat your a$$!!, What? What? " etc. etc.
    Meanwhile his gf is yelling at him to stop and such. But yeah, the guy was a jerk, just p'd cause he lost? who knows...

    Sorry for the length, had to vent a little bit.

    maybe hes pissed cause his $35+ car got beat by your impreza. He probably only lost cause his fat girlfriend was adding more weight to the overly-heavy IS

    I was thinking new

    I LOVE Altezza'a (IS300), but I hate most of the people around here who drive them. They think they own the fastest car ever. When the talk **** about my wrx I tell them to get a Supra conversion and we'll talk later.

    Hah, she actually looked pretty hot, but yeah, it's great to be able to beat cars that cost much more than the impreza does.

    Its just like e46 m3 drivers they think their cars are g-ds gift to the world. I love the is300 guys that think they have a turbo already when they actually only have a exhaust. However when those cars do get turboed watch outttt they are soooo fast then.
    Heaven is where the police are british, the chefs Italian, the mechanics German, the Lovers French and it is all organized by the Swiss. Hell is where the police are German, The chefs British, the mechanics French,the Lovers Swiss, and its all organized by the italians.
