Default Stopped in and looked at the IS- F today

The seats are great compared to ours IS seats. Finally have some nice bolster support. It looks better in person than it does in the pictures. $60K -WOW!

Stop by Servco, it is on the showroom floor.

Aloha,
Larry

Ok check it out today, the dumbo ear mirrors are gone on the is-f, get micro swirls on da paint , the nubby things on the tires look like they got a good scrubbin , didnt care for the white cf overlays, inside the wheelwell was FILTHY dey neva even wipe , didnt really care for the rims, i could just paint my front calipers black and put a lexus sticker and it would look the same (but i'll do mine in red), the fender vents looked too over the top, the grill is... if my 350 came with it ok but its nothing i'd spend money to change over stock isX50, the L in the grill is like a big solid piece of plastic real easy to clean, i didnt ask to open the doors as i wasnt interested in the int., asked the old flip parts guy about the spoiler he said the isX50 spoiler was the same... he obviously doesnt know even thou he was looking it up in the computer

Final verdict? For 64k... no, i'll buy a 3GS and bag/rims/jp bodykit.

I guess I should stop by and check it out too. My friend went down and saw it and told me about it. I should drop off my business card to the lucky person who gets the free swirls when they buy that car! ha ha, LOL!

You know I am the bad guy here. I was getting my MB serviced while I was looking at the IS-F. On the MB floor was a CLK 550 for the same money. Hate me, but that is the one I would buy after owning both cars.

Hahaha!!! I wonder if that was ever tried while doing their road test?! Hahah!!! that would be funny if that came up somewhere in the forums that someone passed and cheated their road test using that.

And for the IS-F, I like the power and speed. Looks don't look to bad.....just ain't in my budget so forget about it. I'll just keep my car for a while and save. By the time I save enough or have enough I should be able to get the new 6th Gen IS. LoL!!!
