Default Hi new around here.. ISF next week!

Hey guys and girls just wanted to introduce myself around here as im about to take hold of a Blue 2011 ISF with only 10k miles on the clock! Trading in my 08 EVO and 11 WRX and looking forward to a luxury sports car and after driving the C63 AMG and a M3 I knew the Lexus was for me! (I actually sell Toyota's so keeps my boss happy)

So first off any suggestions on mods any must buys i need to know about I have heard there isnt many aftermarket parts out there like the Evo.

Congrats! Sounds like a great F to pick up, especially considering the year and with such low mileage. I've had several "B" level cars in the past too like the STi/Evo and, while the F isn't as supported by the aftermarket, I think that's partly due to the fact that it really doesn't need as much. It's a pretty well sorted car from the factory, and this is coming from someone who has modded every car I've ever owned.

It's just nice being in lap of luxury and having that power at your fingertips. Car is dynamically quite capable as well. As far as mods or must buys go, IMO some sort of intake, header, and exhaust is a must to really open up the motor and hear that V8 roar. Otherwise you have a really new car so might as well just enjoy it as is, it'll feel great stock. Congrats again

I just bought mine too so I know how much fun you're about to have!

Grats! I'm sure its going to be a looong few days until you get the car. LOL

You're correct regarding the low aftermarket support, but there are still quality options. Exhaust and Headers are the two main power mods. They'll be the recommended "must buys." There are a few intake options but any gains will be minimal.

Where in Florida are you located by the way?
