Interesting sighting! Is it some rich UCLA guy?

I didn't see a post that said "I just picked my IS-F @ Longo" ??

However, I know this was Longo's 1st delivered Black IS-F for last week...
Since its the only one that came in... (according to reliable sources )

Yup, each dealer gets one car on the same day so everyone's equal, then they all start rolling in later.
I saw one at Glendale's showroom, their's is a white with black interior, crazy how much extra they're charging for that car.

Did theirs have the $10K dealer adjustment ??

Most dealerships will put on the "$5,000 chrome wheels" and the "$900 pinstripe", etc etc etc.....you know the drill Joe. lol

Although to be fair, I know Longo will sell cars at straight msrp, no add ons, and Glendale said they would take off any extra options the customer didn't want to buy. I don't know about any other dealers though.

Funny you mention that..

There is an IS350 at Longo I saw Friday... it had $5,995 19" CEC Wheels as an ADD ON.

They have soo many 08's just sitting on the outside lot.

No worries...
If I was a potential buyer of that IS350, and it was the only one on the lot, I would have demanded they remove those fugly wheels...

... and reinstall the 08' OEM set up.
(after all, they are still charging for them)

Default IS-F Spotted!!

Such a sweet looking car, it deserves its own post. I was on my way back from tahoe this afternoon, got gas at the Chevron someone near Sacramento, when I noticed a lexus pull up.. not an ordinary lexus that I notice, this one had eye catching fenders. At first I thought it could've been an IS350 with custom fenders, however, I would've expected more, if he had the money to do custom body work..
He turns in, and parks far away from other cars, when I noticed a little something, next to the "IS" area, and also noticed the quad exhaust, which has its unique look, in a good way.
When I finally realize, it's a IS-F!
Now I don't roam through this forum much, other than the car audio classifieds , but I thought I'd make a stop here, since I was already registered [Originally reg'd to look up stuff for brothers birthday present on his 3G gs300]

Anyways, I guess after that rant, this thread needs a pic to spice things up. Just a driveby crappy phone camera shot

Thanks for the pic. Even with a phone camera shot it still looks good sitting there all alone. Guess you'll see more of them in Cali then any other state at this time.

HAHA

I'd hate someone if they parked next to me when I was trying to avoid anyone parking next to my IS-F!
