Personally, if i had $45k to spend on an F...I would go for a High mileage 2011, Performance enhancements (LSD + Better Steering/Suspension) alone would be worth it.

Not to mention LED DRLs, Newer Gen Nav with Bluetooth Audio streaming.

That's how I feel about it. Unless it's an exotic, which this car clearly isn't, it comes down to year and mileage and that's how you base what you should pay for the car. I've reminded him about this. I'm sure he could find a 2010-2011 IS-F for $5k-$10k more, but the plus is that it's a few years newer. And I know the new models have the LSD, and the sweet new spider looking mesh wheels.

Doesn't matter if it's special. The only car I can justify paying a decent amount of money for is an unmolested Integra Type-R.

Exactly this. Or even a 2010 for all that, less LEDs and partial suspension upgrade.

Absolutely for me it was worth the little extra but I know there is no "performance" advantage.

I have a NM edition and the rims, white stitching, "F" headrests, and exclusivity made it worth a little extra coin for me...I would say $45k isn't horrible from a dealer. I biased though b/c I want prices to stay high since I own one....and yes, the original sticker was almost $69k.

Texas has lots of hail damaged cars. Beware. I paid 39k for 19k miles on my 08 USB 3 months ago. But I'm in the finance business and do business with the dealer, 45k seems fair being a specialty-specialty car with 12k miles, I would go in person and try to at least get a grand lower. As rare as these cars are they do sit at the dealerships because of the price tag. I can run a carfax for you if need it. I would check autocheck too if you have access. I would buy it if everything is clean

I am going with him to the dealer tomorrow to look at the car. 12k miles on a 5 year car is a sight to see. Attempted to go today after work, but the weather was not cooperating.

Compare to what the newer models have, I think you're better off getting the newer one because of the suspension improvement and LSD.

I remember seeing it when it literally hit the dealer. The salesman said that he had room to negotiate, and I do feel that I could've haggle some more, but I got a pretty sweet deal for it. He said that he was willing to negotiate despite it being mere minutes in the underground inventory lot because he knew the embarassment I had to go through with other salesmen before he stepped up on my behalf.

Right on! Just the subtle accents make it special and more unique. It's no different than any other F performance- wise, but the difference in detail makes it worth it for me. I'm glad Lexus decided to team up with Neiman Marcus to kick start sales and introduce the IS F to the North American market this way.

Went today to go see the car and apparently, the car was gone. The sales rep my friend was dealing with was not there so we spoke to someone else and he called a few of the guys on the lot and they said it was sold, but has not been confirmed yet. It was never posted online for inventory viewing. My friend said that they only required a $50 deposit and that his card that he put it on would not be charged, but rather to hold it.

That didn't work, because the car was never held for him to look at it today with me. To clarify, it actually only had 10,000 miles, not 12.

If anyone is interested, I can get you the information of the dealership. My friend still wants it if it isn't sold, but is considering newer models, because I told him he will want LSD and the newer wheels, etc.
