Congratulations and to the non believers, see how much nicer a smaller mirror looks!

You're right - the mirrors on the IS-F look much better.

Great pictures!

The comparison pictures are great to see what $25k more gets you. By the way, what tint percent is your IS350? I'm thinking of getting the that grade for my IS F.

Great shots. For what it's worth, I think the F looks much nicer. Ha, I haven't even gotten mine yet and already my first dissapointment, no AC seats? I actually LIKE AC seats. Here's a question, is the steering very precise? It's one of the things I like most about my M45 and I'm hoping it's not mushy or anything. I don't need it to be Ferrari precise but I do want it to go exactly where I move the wheel to.

Tint on the very back window is 5% (or 95% depending on how you read it) - basically limo tint. The side rear windows are 50%, but they look much darker because of the dark back window. I did not touch the front windows.

Interestingly, I noticed that the IS-F windows look darker that the 350 did when it was stock. I assume it may have to do with the black headliner.

I think the steering is very precise, but then again I don't drive Ferraris. My last 8 cars have been Lexus, in addition to a few Toyotas and Acuras.

Thanks for the pictures. I love that color and am waiting on one as well. My guy at Magnussen's in Fremont says that there are no whites in allocation yet. I haven't heard of any Bay Area dealership to have sold a white IS-F so far. If anyone knows a Bay Area dealership (or Norcal dealership) that has this color, please let me know. I am requesting for a dealer trade but with the limited numbers, I'm not sure if that will be a possibilty.

IS-F Cali, Roseville Lexus has another white coming in next week, but it is definitely sold as well.

Bass Mech, temp tag? If you are talking about a temp license plate, in CA they tape a small paper printout of your registration to the passenger side of the windshield until the actual plates arrive in a few weeks. We get new plates every time you purchase a new car. I know some states have you keep the old plates and move them from car to car.

Agreed... but only by an inch or so...

Last night I was at Aerotect watching them install the mirror protection from a reg 2IS kit and it needed some triming...

I like the new design too..

Wow, I love the White! Thanks for the side by side comparison. The ISF definately looks more sportier and aggressive than the IS350. One thing tho, are both the front and rear fenders more flared than the IS350. Front the pictures the rear looks almost the same with the front a little bit more flared right?
