Default NM Special Build

I love my ISF, especially the fact that I got the NM Special Build at a steal. I was wondering where all the other NM Special Builds are?

I've got a sitting offer of 56,833 on a black with alpine, light washers and park assist but I haven't decided yet if I'm going to take the deal. Awesome car but 56k is a good chunk of change and gas prices are making me nervous.

# 6 is in Las Vegas. Got it the first week of March but haven't had much of an opportunity to drive it. Not even 700 miles on it. Every time I've had it out, someone has given me the thumbs up or commented on the nice look. Going to driving school at end of July. Sounds like you got a great deal. Good for you. Enjoy yourself.

I don't know if my handle is self explanatory, but I have 50 of 50.

I just did the Skip Barber driving session that came with the car. It was awesome. We did about 8 laps with the instructor in the passenger seat, then 10 laps of follow the leader and then 2 "hot" laps with the instructor driving. The experience was excellent.

The driving session was great. The sucky thing was that American Airlines cancelled my flight back to Los Angeles. I would have had to wait a day to fly out so Lexus provided a rental car. The rental was a VW Jetta. Needless to say, the drive home was horrible compared to the track time.

I didn't think I should start a new thread on this - so I'll just add to this one.

I never even knew of the "Special Build" IS-F until I visited my Lexus dealer today for some wiper refills.

Anyway - if anyone is interested, one of the Special Builds is still available (new, not used) at Highland Park Lexus in Highland Park, IL.

I saw the sticker and the package adds $12k to it - I was like, wha??? I thought the only option was the Nav package.

They also have an IS-F in blue on their showroom. Ahh.. maybe in another life I'll be lucky enough to have the $$ for one.

It was black. These two IS-Fs were the first I've seen up close. The white interior is gorgeous, but I certainly wouldn't turn away the black interior.

I love the white interior. I special ordered a blue/white F coming in in November if all works well. I got to drive a blue/white F at the TOL here in CA. Ironic that I did and that it was the only one there.
