Default Can anyone tell me which modifications are on this IS-C F-Sport?

IMO this car looks completely perfect. Just gorgeous to me and exactly what I wanted and a vast improvement over the stock IS-C look. I'm just not keen on paying $42K for it when I think I can find a non F-sport model for almost 15K cheaper.

Anyone know what mods would be needed to make a stock IS-C look like this one? I'm looking at it and it appears all I really need are the 19" Forged F-Sport wheels & Tires and the F-sport lowering springs (assuming that's what this vehicle has on). Does it look like there is anything else on this vehicle, or did I make a mistake on what those two parts are on this car?

Thanks

Here is a link to some info. You get a limited edition with some different things added on but you are also giving up some other things like 3 memory seat positions. You are not getting the heavy duty F sport performance parts with this edition. Not worth the price IMO.

I have the regular 2012 IS350C with the Lux package. Here is what I have done to mine for less than $7K, all work has been done by me.

Wow! My '13 was only 50k brand new, but mine is a 250. I see some major inconsistencies between it and mine. No F-Sport logo on the steering wheel, no aluminum pedals, my grill is different and I have little lips under my fog lights. I'm wondering if this is just a rebadging or if those things changed between 11 and 13 MY.

Just bought a 2012 350C with nav and 10k on the clock for 40K certified. Looking at the specs the only performance mods I can see are suspension. I don't even see that it has the f-sport exhaust. I like the red interior, but I think it is about 3-4k over priced.

Love your car, but it's slightly more aggressive than what I wanted to go for but thanks for giving me an idea of what it would cost. I really like the wheels, exterior color and the drop the guy had in the listing.

Based on that information it doesn't seem like this was an F-sport model, but one with F-sport parts and the badge. I still really can't tell which of the mods he/she used, except my best guess is that he has the 19" Forged wheels (I think???) that were available from 2011-2013 and has the F-sport lower springs and the F-sport badge. As for anything else, I wouldn't be able to tell as I am not yet an owner of the IS-C but hope to be within the next few months...

Good luck. They have to be hard to find. I have only seen one like mine since I bought it a year and a half ago.

Did you read this link I posted for you? It explains what you are looking at. It is a limited edition factory Fsport. Read the link and you will see the car you are looking at.
