Great write up, definitely! Super interesting to hear about importing a car, much less an F.

im glad you chose to keep the F instead of getting a Hyundai or Kia!!

BTW, your F is not too black... your bro us just a little jealous of how good it looks!

Awesome story, thanks for sharing! Enjoy your car in Korea and hopefully parts are interchangeable.

Yes, I do have a sunroof, although sometimes I wish I didn't. Headroom is definately a precious commodity in the IS sedan.

You never know! I actually got a Kia Sorento for family duties - Not bad for a family hauler with 2.2 litre piezzo-injected turbo diesel. Impressive fuel economy!

We need to have a Seoul Lexus meetup sometime. Have you found a good mechanic to work on mods or checkups?

^^^
Definately not me
Obsidian is not available for ISF in Korea. It must be either F-ed IS250 or gray imported ISF.

BTW, what are you doing here?

Happy hunting! If you plan to visit Seoul and got some time to spare, we should go for a night snacks or something.

Sorry, I got you very late..
Although my car has never needed any service (other than scheduled maintenance which was performed at a local Lexus service center), I know a good mechanic. He has worked for i Code in Japan for some years before coming back to Korea. He mostly deals with Porsches (you know, i Code specialty is Porsches & Toyotas).. But if my car needs anything, I will definately see him.

I got to know him when my 1995 Audi RS2 needed a lot of work. He practically resurrected my RS2 from scraps..
