Default Updates on my 340k+ mi 2008 IS-F

I purchased the high mileage IS-F last July (https://www.clublexus.com/forums/is-...000-miles.html)

Once I got the car back to Cleveland from Chicago I installed new rotors and pads all around and checked the suspension as well. I also ordered new aftermarket headlights with LEDs.

I also changed the transmission fluid as the car was running on original fluid. The fluid change didnít really degrade or improve the transmission. So the fluid is pretty much ďlifetimeĒ.

I went through winter with the car without issues on the Continental DSW06! Pretty impressive performance for an all season tire in NE Ohio winters!
I also installed an injen intake during winter. The intake really opened up the induction noise, especially when the secondary intake is active!

After winter, I installed new OEM lower control bushing and performed alignment. Car was still in spec after the LCA bushing change!

Iíve put over 8,000 miles on the car and has been trouble free. The only in between attention it needed was a 0.5-quart fill up around 2,000 miles after purchase. I think the shop that performed the oil change didnít put the full 9.8qts the car requires. I havenít had to top off oil since. I ran a Blackstone oil analysis and the results came back pretty near average! So the engine is still pretty healthy.

Last couple of weeks, Iím starting to improve itís appearance. I refinished the brake calipers by stripping them down to the metal and refinishing it in red with Brembo decals and clear coat (I didnít realize it until taking these pictures, but the front passenger decal was installed the wrong way... oh well). I also installed new RSR R704 in 19x8.5 and 9.5 setup. Still running the DSW06 in stock sizes. In the near future I planned on getting some of the paint touched up and perhaps an exhaust system or mod.

Here are are some current pictures of the car!

That old war horse still looks like a young colt If I recall correctly, the Injen intake removes the secondary flap, so you're always running wide open.

so as far as performance goes, how would you say the car is doing? is it still pulling strong? curious to see hear how a high performance car handles after such high mileage.

It definitely pulls strong. Very quick acceleration and its effortless on the highway.
