Where did you get your grill from I was thinking about getting this one but im worried about the center "L" logo. Is there a way to put my OEM one onto the Fsport grill like you did?

I bought the grille from the dealer. You will need the grille and the emblem, you can't transfer the emblem because it is practically glued to the grille.

After only 8 months and 1,391 miles driven I traded this in. I will post pics of the new car soon. This is the shortest amount of time I have ever owned a car!

Luckily I was able to get the F Sport exhaust back. If anyone in the northern Nevada area wants a deal on the exhaust: https://reno.craigslist.org/pts/4439126086.html

The 250 sold with 6853 miles. It sold before it even hit the lot. I guess the car was still going through inspection and there were 2 customers fighting over it without even seeing it.

Yep, traded in for the IS-F. They gave me all the money for the 250 which really helped me make it possible for the IS-F. Sounds like it paid off for them because they had a bidding war.

It is a definite boost in power. Even though this thing moves, I am more impressed with its stopping ability rather than acceleration (not in anyway to say it has not enough acceleration).

I am a time capsule car kind of guy. I am still on my original tank of gas! I want to keep the mileage low because I am one of those crazy ones....
