I would get a 997.2 over a GTR in a heartbeat. The GTR is a car I respect, but don't love. The 911 has been a dream car for me since I had a poster on my wall as a kid over 20 years ago. I don't...

I also want/need 4 doors but the RCF still had me thinking of a switch.... before the final numbers came out. I'd rather buy a gently used 2014 ISF as an upgrade to my 2009 than a 2015 RCF. Four...

I know you said it was theoretical, but I can't see why anyone would seriously consider this. It'd be a whole lot of money spent just to make the car perform worse.

Agree with the OP that heating it up and denting it should not be the solution for something that expensive. Fitment should be perfect at that price point. The good news is that it appears several...

This is an easy one. Ship your ISF there, enjoy it in ways you can't enjoy it here in the States (autobahn, ring, etc) then sell it there before you move back for more than you could sell it for...

I haven't been tracking this forum as closely as some others, but I'm surprised to see that the starting price is listed as LESS than the IS-F on the website. That is not what I expected!

Congrats man! As far as "break in" it's piping, so there's really not anything to break in. Your car's ECU "learns" as you go, but that happens relatively fast. I don't think anyone has done any...

Motor trend best drivers car 2014. Where does the ISF fit in?

Or the RCF for that matter. In looking at the chart where they've mapped out 100 or so cars and times around Laguna Seca, I notice a few interesting things.

The 2008 M3 lapped at 1:43. Our ISF is...

Favorite replacement battery for ISF?

my battery went dead about a year ago. I jumped it, but it has gone dead on me 2 times since then while sitting in my garage for a few days (sometimes I will go 4 to 5 days without driving the ISF)....

You've got at least one person that is willing to swap your aftermarket exhaust for their stock one, and you seemingly have a dealership willing to do the labor for free. So it seems to me that you...

They look fantastic! I'd go with black lugs. Did you buy them new from Sewell or a dealership, or did you pick them up used from someone?

To the OP, THIS is the solution to your dilemma. Worst thing is you'll be without an exhaust for a few days, but you should definitely take him up on the offer. It'll be much quicker than trying to...

To be fair, it is quite possible the dealership didn't know the exhaust had been modified. Of course they could have intentionally lied to you, but being that these cars are rare, and it was a BMW...
