I know the feeling.. I had a Tanabe axle back on my IS350 for awhile, but the drone during day to day driving began to annoy me so I sold it.. And that was probably less than what I'm hearing now. ...

Quiet down the exhaust

A little history: 2012 purchased as CPO this past January. From day one, I thought the exhaust was a bit loud and exhibited some drone at lower RPMs. Before I purchased, the last time I'd driven an...

OPs situation sounds just like what happened to me a couple weeks ago.. I'll see what kind of filter is in there (replace if needed), and clean the MAF.

This confuses me.. I think I need to find another stock IS-F in the area for a comparison. While my car does sound awesome under hard acceleration, it seems to have a lot drone at lower RPMs, which...

Sounds like there's something not right with your car's sensors and/or electronics. My '06 IS door locks have responded to finger touch instantaneously nearly every single time since the day I...

Wow, $6K/year?? In many cases, getting older isn't necessarily a good thing, but this is definitely one area where it can be a plus! I pay just over $1600/year for full coverage on my IS-F and a...

I agree that racing NASCAR isn't as simple minded as haters tend to portray it. They're talented drivers, no doubt. However, I don't think it compares to what it takes to compete at the top level of...

No, Pohanka since it's on the way to my office (I work near 28/Waxpool). I used to go to Lindsay (I bought the IS 350 there), but it's just too far out of the way for me these days.

To get on regular 5K OCI (with mileage ending in a 0 or 5K), I changed my oil early this past weekend. I bought the car with 8.2K miles, and it now has 11.3K. After 3K miles of use, I was amazed at...

When the IS F first came out, the salesman that sold me the IS 350 called & offered an overnight test drive. I kept the IS F for ~24 hours! Now that's direct marketing. :p :thumbup:

I was happy to see Ricciardo beat Vettel by 24 seconds after that "tough luck" comment over the radio. Every time I gain just a bit of respect for Vettel, he confirms my long standing option that...

Rough idle (near stall), CEL, loss of power

A little background.. It's a 2012, purchased CPO almost 3 months ago. 11.3K miles currently. I'd noticed what I thought was a slightly low idle on occasion when stopped (which is apparently not...

This seems like a typo.. Shouldn't it be "maximum weight"?

Wow, I knew F1 drivers aren't big guys, but I didn't realize how light some are (like Massa).

Here are some pics I took this morning. It was good to meet some other IS-F owners first thing, but my son was on auto-pilot (with camera in hand), so we were gone for the duration... I'm thrilled...

At this time, it's very likely I'll be going this Saturday.. I'll try to be at the Maryland Athletic Club before 7:30. It'll be cool to park w/other IS-Fs (& meet fellow owners as well).

I might take my son up to the Hunt Valley meet this weekend.. It sucks that the weather forecast for Wed-Thur-Fri is going to make it difficult to show up with a clean car :sad:

Yep, that's an unfortunate issue where I live/commute (Northern VA/D.C. suburbs). After 8 years, the front of my IS350 has lots of wear & tear. I really need to get a clear bra on the IS-F ASAP....

It'll become my DD any day now as I plan to sell the IS350 within a week.. Sucks that I'll have to start driving it during foul weather, but when I hear the V8 fire up, I'll get over it :p
