  1. Also need to add that 1 lap (in an ISF anyhow) uses 1/4 of a tank of fuel. So factor in a tank per 4 laps plus the cost of 4 laps being in excess of 100 Euros.... All adds up.... but I still go every year as it's an amazing place. Even if you didn't drive around and purely went for beer, banter and watch other cars. There are worse ways to spend a weekend.
  2. Ah the old Honda Type R forum... I miss those days (I had 2 x DC2, 1 x DC5 Integra Type R's and an S2000). To be fair, that forum would stick it's nose up at people if they did so much as change tyres to anything other than what was on the car when it rolled out of the factory ;-) I won't be putting the ISF for sale on here then.... as my profile pic is a bit of a giveaway. Mind you... I am never selling her :-) Nurburgring again in September this year.... Best get my Euro's in order....
  3. Surely it depends on what car you are buying? If someone was buying a 750i and it was tracked then surely this would apply. If you are buying something that is meant to be pushed a little bit more than the M27 on a Sunday evening then you would be a little less bothered.
  4. Too many.... NSX is right up there but.... E46 M3 CSL when they weren't 50k upwards. I was going to buy an E46 M3 CS before I bought the ISF but the wife veto'd it due to only having 2 doors and our second car was a Mini Cooper S so needed a baby friendly vehicle. Decent E46 M3 still on bucket list now but the standard ones are creeping up as well :-(
  5. I met him at the Nurburgring in Sept last year. Pleasant chap. Pretty handy around there as well. Pretty sure he was running R888's front and rear and told me that he runs the rear tyre size at front as well. His Mrs always looked like she was none too impressed.
  6. 155k miles and still going strong (1st video). Happy Days :-)
  7. 1 injector went and they did all 6 under a recall. Everything was under warranty apart from fuel pump. It was more the inconvenience that the car was at BMW for 11 weeks in 1 single year rather than cost :-(
  8. Got a reminder on Facebook today that I picked my ISF up a year ago today. She replaced an E90 335i which I also had for a year. Summary of ownership below... BMW 335i M Sport - MY2007 - 40k miles Failures... 2 x turbos 2 x turbo actuators 1 x Lambda sensor 1 x High Pressure Fuel Pump 6 x Injectors 1 x major oil leak Then on to Lexus ISF - MY2008 - 50k miles Failures... Zero In case of tempting fate I have just renewed my Lexus warranty for 2 years. Money well spent? ;-)
  9. Alfa Quattrofellatio or whatever it's called just as it dips under 50k ;-)
  10. Used them on my 335i and my old Nissan 350Z. Not got a bad word to say about them. Didn't realise they did them for the ISF :-)
  11. I'm on my 5th read. It's like reading Bravo Two Zero... Get's better every time you read it ;-) @Big Rat I should add that it would leave it for dead in a straight line only. The ISF stops though which is a big difference. I am sure the VXR8 has brakes off of an 80's Opel Manta ;-)
  12. My brothers father in law had a supercharged VXR8 and had no end of problems with it. He had a gearbox sensor issue which Holden/Vauxhall would only sort via a new gearbox (he runs a gearbox repair company so he knows his stuff in that area). So instead of getting a new gearbox at a cost of several pounds, he decided to break the car and has replaced it with..... another VXR8. I have no idea what to make of this. On a different note, a supercharged VXR8 (when working) would leave my ISF for dead and sounds amazing on full SC whine.
  13. You have pm :-)
  14. I enquired about the diff to fit it to my 08.... £2500.... No thanks.... Can get a decent aftermarket one for a lot less.
  15. Damn you... I wanted a white one... Looks ace. Congrats :-)
