I knew that the IS F was ahead of its time when I first started looking at them. When I first drove the '09 IS F and the '09-'010 M3 I felt that the IS F was a much more tractable daily driver...

I can see why JORDANAF would buy another C63, especially if it is a '12 and up. I just recently traded in my '12 SPW IS F for a '13 C63 sedan based on extensive research and a very long test drive....
