Default Tomorrow FINALLY IS-C - waited 4 months!

I know there are no pictures here yet, so don't harsh on me too bad....however, I am antsy as anything regarding tomorrow, and wanted to tell people who will appreciate and understand, so I come here to ClubLexus! I ordered an IS-C on Aug 10th.....tomorrow I get to pick her up. I work for Toyota Motor Sales, so I go through the lengthy process of ordering instead of taking a customers order.

IS-C, 6 speed manual
Tungsten Pearl (aka silver), with black leather

Factory options:
HID lights
Navigation
Heated/Ventilated seats

Port Installed Options:
F-Sport 19" Forged Wheel/Tire upgrade
F-Sport lowering springs (include Blistein shocks)
F-Sport sway bars
F-Sport exhaust
F-Sport intake
F-sport shift ****

I CANNOT WAIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I currently have an RX400h, and prior to this had an 08 IS250 (automatic).

I work at the port in Jax, we get the ships in from Japan...so I have watched the whole process of my car from ordering to knowing it got put on a ship, to it coming into Jax, and now watching the Port Installed Options be installed. The rims/tires will be put on tomorrow, then delivered to the dealer for pick up in the afternoon.
I am hoping to post some pictures tomorrow, if not at latest on Wed!

Thanks for understanding my want to tell someone, haha

Mv350.....it will be next, no worries. I wanted to get all the things I really wanted at first.....the intake I am actually buying at the dealer with employee pricing tomorrow. The rest is all installed already. It's a lease through our employee program, and then I will buy it after I hit the mileage for biggest discount. The short shifter will be a couple of months out. I have heard it is a must to have.

Hey! I talked to you a couple times through PM chat......I am ready to go back to Hawaii , haha! It's 6 speed manual, so it's the 250.

Mikes RX - thanks bro. Thanks for your feedback in regards to the car also when I was asking you about it - really appreciate it. Tomorrow is finally the big day

LexusIS408.....I am honestly not sure how much they dropped it. I saw it today, but it still had the stock 17" wheels on it, and it looked low/really good. I ordered a pckg in my lease that came w/ the springs, sway bars, and shocks. I am an employee for TMS, so they give us diff pckgs to get in our leases.

Terrance - thanks man, really appreciate it. I got the one's I really really wanted, and that were covered in the lease. I will do the short shifter later on outside the lease, and am doing the intake now outside the lease......but I plan to purchase the car when I get the right miles for best employee discount.

Steveo.....for the employee lease price, it was still a good size difference, believe me, I checked Plus I really wanted a convertible really bad.....I have watched the car since they told us they were doing it a few yrs back....so it is kind of surreal to actually be getting it tomorrow.
