Default Official IS-F "Spotted" thread

With the impending retail release of the IS-F stateside, it's time to start a "spotted" thread for those of us lucky enough to spot one on the public roads. Post when, where, and which color you saw! I'll start:

Tuesday, December 18, 2007:

Ultrasonic Blue IS-F heading eastbound on 210 freeway in Glendale/Pasadena, CA.

I'm a little late on this one... But I'll post it up anways..

11/15/07.. Left turning lane Figueroa St & 8th in Downtown LA..

I'm sure he was heading to the LA Auto Show Sneak Preview night..

It was a wonderful sight to see a Smoky Granite Mica IS-F in person..
I was right next to him in my 08' SGM IS350

Please excuse the blury cell phone pic... I barely got the shot in as the light turned green..

Default Black ISF w/ Longo plates spotted in Westwood

So damn nice!

I took a few crappy cell pics, but they don't do it any justice. The car is sick in person, and I even thought the exhaust was nice. The black with the dark wheels looks really slick. A nice surprise.

I saw the car driving a little later, but wasn't outside to notice the sound and it was driving very slow, so I didn't get to see it show off any of that performance under the hood.

Anyway, nice ride!

We just received a blue ISF at the port and I agree with you its nice. I had the chance to sit inside and rev it. I think the exhaust need to be a little louder to hear those 8 cyl. roar.
