    Yeah, I was a moderator on is300.net before it became my.is
    Similar to being a line-waiter pre-order for Model 3, I had pre-ordered one of the first IS300s back in 2000.
    My son has taken over the old 2001 IS300 now...

    If memory serves, didn’t you spray your car with a protectant coating? Guess it wasn’t a long term solution?

    I’m super paranoid about rock chips. Suntek ultra is holding up well, after a year, but I still keep my follow distances generous. Wish there was a speed based variable distance setting for autopilot.

    Very nice. I had a 2002 IS300 back in the day. I was on is300.net daily also. Wish I still have it. Love that car.

    As long as I have the Model 3, I won't miss the IS300.

    WOW! Great memory. Yes, the 3M Car Spray Film worked great for the first month, but I didn't wash the bugs for a 4,000-mile trip the first Summer and when I took it thru a no-touch wash the wet bug weight pulled the film down and it filled with wash water. Must have held 5 gallons coming out of the wash.

    The film was still on the back and when Winter came the film would get super grey on cold rainy days.

    Decided to get the ceramic touched up recently and took the opportunity to have them add the front film and finally removed the rear spray film. I was SHOCKED how much dirt had become impregnated in that film. The paint underneath looked (was) brand new. I may use another can on the rear next Winter.
