Hi Guys:

It's been ~ 10days since me girlfriend picked up her IS.

Done about 800km so far. Still in run-in period, so she is very gentle with the gas paddle.

I have driven a few times, handling feels much softer than mine.

Engine is quieter too(4AT vs 6MT).

I took lots of pics of 2 IS this avo, I will up-load some in the gallery.


Please also check my "yahoo photos" for updated pictures.

Thanks Guys for your comments!!

To Tezz: I m in Brisbane AUS.

To Frylai: The plates I got are personalised plates (Retro style) there are many different colour combo/ letter combo / even American, German Size plates available in QLD. u can visit www.ppq.com.au . There are many different plates in other states of AUS.

My GF also noticed a small difference between our cars.

The windscreen washer jets only have one hole per jet for 2004 IS,

whereas mine (2002) has 3 holes per jet.

I noticed the shape of the washer jet housing is slight different between 2 cars.

Anyone with 2004 model noticed this differnce?

Hi all:

Just updating the news on my GF's IS.

It's done about 2500km now, I am about to change oil for her soon.

The bonnet got a big stone chip :( ,it's been touched up by service department, but it's no where near perfect. :angry:

The windscreen washer jets I mentioned in the last post; 04 model has one hole/slit, but it actually has a fan shape misty spray, rather than 3 seperate strems of water from 3 holes. The 04 style jet distribute water much better than previous style. :D
