Not an easy decision but we're buying a new motorhome and the much loved ISF is up for sale. I usually import a different car each year and about 18 months ago I imported this 2008 ISF from Japan. I absolutely love it, my family will be quite shocked to find out its for sale!
It drives very well and sounds superb, its had a few choice modifications outlined below but still looks standard. I had it serviced and MOT'd recently. It is still a 12 year old car with over 80k on the clock so it has its wear and tear, but nothing out of the normal expectations in my opinion. Anyways, I'll stop babbling and list some of the key info:
2008 JDM ISF
Approx 84k Miles (135,000kms)
Speedo has been left in KM's (I'm used to it personally having had so many imports but can be switched to MPH with a simple converter)
Usual ISF refinements, heated seats, radar cruise control etc
Recently serviced and MOT'd (May)
Comes with all documentation from the import process
Private plate will be removed and returned to original 08 plate
As well as the normal specification I have done the following:
HPS Intake pipe inc K&N Panel
F Sport Gearknob
245/25/19 front and 275/30/19 rear good tyres
Tein Street Advance Coilovers - adjustable height and stiffness
Secondary cat removed (cat provided)
Boot ducts replaced
Lexus brake kit fitted front and rear
New pads front and rear
Interior bulbs replaced with LEDs (inc outside mirrors)
New gas struts for the boot
Android Head Unit fitted with phase 2 vents
Hardrace rear sway bar fitted along with new drop links (original provided)
Hardrace Lower Control Arms fitted (originals provided)
Ive missed a load I'm sure, lots of normal maintenance inc bushes etc. It has a few bits that I'll be probably too detailed about, I'm the worst salesman. It sometimes has a rattle from the drivers B pillar, a common IS issue. I just haven't got round to taking the pillar off and packing it. It has not bad damage but there will be some small scratches that will come out with a polish. It has had some brake rattling from the pads which is now resolved with the fitting kits.
Highly recommend viewing for anyone interested, I will as normal for me, try my best not to sell it. It will be sorely missed. It drives superbly and sounds excellent both above and below the intake changeover. I was considering and exhaust but the setup to me now is excellent.
I'm based near Glasgow and the price is fixed at an honest £11,000 which is in my mind a very fair price so I wont be looking for offers. I might be wrong but I think the price is excellent for what it is.
Any questions, please just ask as I have likely missed many things!
