Been a long time member of CL, started with an 08 IS250, after four years I came to a cross roads with the build, keep spending money on the VIP route and wide body the car, or buy the car I knew I always wanted, the F!!!
My previous car (static btw, everyone used to think it was bagged!)
So after searching for a couple months for a low mileage, un-modified F, one finally popped up at Lexus of Pleasanton which happened to be fairly close to me!! I went to look at the car, and walked away that day with the keys in my hand!
2008 Mercury Metallic IS-F
47k on the clock!!
First Night with it
First Mods were the RR-Racing Intake Tube with AEM insert, combined with the Air Oil Seperator
Then came the ISS Scoops, and I was able to find a used Joe-Z Catback from OneSiCkF, big thanks to him for working with me to pick up the exhaust!
Since I own a commercial graphics/wrap business, and to be honest, I'm not a big silver guy. I wrapped the whole car using the new Orafol Color, Aubergine Bronze (found on the VIPautosalon cars at SEMA), and Black Chrome for accents.
Added a Tom's Rep Rear diffuser as well.
Was able to pull the 2013 Headlights, and 2014 LED fogs from my previous build to update to the 2014 front end for the F!
In the sun it changes colors constantly!
That's it for now. Next up is suspension, I have FIGs LCA Bushings, Megan Toe and Camber arms, and the F-Sport rear sway bar for the rear. I am NOT slamming this car, I bought it to drive and track it. Thinking of going the Penske route for Coils, but still undecided! Hope you guys like it, I know it's a little different than usual
