  1. Is your F 100% stock?

    @flytvr is yours stock? I kinda recall from the blat that you said it was??
  2. Is your F 100% stock?

    Borla catback exhaust, K&N air intake system, subtle rear diffuser, vaistech wireless audio module and larger tyres all round. And, hopefully, I'll get the USRS kit.
  3. Spotted this yesterday

    Lovely machine! looks well cared for. I remember a friend's of mine dad having one in the early 90's. This one is defo a Jap import...it reminds of of the mk1 MR2 from Toyota.
  4. Isf to Rcf

    I drove the RC (300h) as a loan car for a day, it is a lovely package but it isnt for me. I'm 6.2" so there's little space at the back for one of my lil' ones (I have 3). If I'm to stay with the Lexus brand when I change my car next year, it'll have to be the GSF. I'd love the LC (in spite of limited leg room at the rear) however, that will be out of my budget still. I nearly committed to an E63 last month, but it didn't feel like twice the car that the ISF is...at least that was my reasoning....I keep changing my mind on what I want....grrrrr!!!!
  5. She's Finally Here

    I've only seen one other ISF in the SE of London in two years of ownership - a black one with a private plate. Seen 7 other ISFs in Wales though - all at once! The black ones seem to have the loudest exhaust @Rusty Crobar!!
  6. She's Finally Here

    Great colour combo @Defratos! She looks good! Grey ones are the fastest! LOL!
  7. Haywood and scott

    Hey @Big Rat! all well mate! How are things? It's the full cat back setup. The tips are stock though. I purchased it with the Borla exhaust already installed. I've been lazy and I've only added a subtle rear diffuser in 2yrs or so ownership.
  8. Haywood and scott

    Having heard the exhaust sounds on the standard ISFs on the Welsh blat, though a lovely v8 note, I do like the extra beefiness that my aftermarket Borla exhaust emanates especially above the magic 3500 rpm number...very addictive indeed! Of course, there are other less costly options, but anyone that's thinking of it I'd say go for it! I use mine as a daily drive and boy it helps make typically boring journeys a tad more enjoyable..well worth the £££!

    I'll make time for it...
  10. Bluewater Meet

    Hey Pete, I'll be there no probs. Only 30mins away. cheers, D
  11. New owner questions E92 M3 to IS F

    Hi Wesley, I've gone the Vaistech route because I wanted to use the built-in touch screen and the steering wheel controls (mainly to change my songs in spotify). Of course, I can then use the maps from my phone (android OS) and any other app running on my smartphone on the larger ISF screen (relative to my smartphone). Relatively easy to install and keeps it all looking OEM. Welcome to the club!
  12. Bluewater Meet

    The calendar seems clear on the 25th. I'll check with the Boss when I get home this evening. I've missed the last couple. D
  13. I totally agree - go the long way home once or twice per week! and in a v8 it will be fun (roads permitting). I usually run my engine for a short while before driving off in any case and would recommend it if you are able to do so (without vexing the neighbours)!
  14. ISF Supercharged

    @Rusty Crobar I agree, but...it would be nice to have, wouldn't it??! The chassis and transmission can easily cope with an extra 80-160bhp think. Would I?... even if I had the cash...maybe, only just!
  15. What's important to an ISF owner

    Agreed, however in my case I'd swap the reliability (35%) and rarity figures (15%) round. I've spent too much on Mercs and BMW repairs in my lifetime (for now at least)!
