interesting, usually cars make improvements and people barely notice. Seems the consensus is most notice it on the IS-F.

I personally love the looks of the IS, but the lack of mods available it what kind of bugs me. Which is why i'm leaning more towards the c63. That electric blue the F comes in is drop dead gorgeous.

Check out tiff needel and fifth gear crew testing the two. That video looks old from the thumbnail.

Actually they've made suspension tweaks to it for a number of years. It's only getting better each year.

I have 2011 Ultra Sonic Blue or USB ISF, it great car and suits my needs perfectly as fun, fast DD. As far as modding car is concern it's good and bad the bad part if your looking to make big HP number by adding Turbo or SC it's not happening know one has been able to crack ECU. I've modded every car I have ever owed this is first one car that wasn't modded with force induction etc.

The good part I saved tons of cash and aggravation lol, I have done bolt on route PPE ceramic coated stainless steel headers, Joe-Z full exhaust both primary and secondary cats deleted,Joe-Z intake, AFE hi flow filter. Dyno 357 whp stock and 412whp modded the ISF response well to these mod's and factory ecu adjust and quickly learns. Luv the way ISF sound with headers and exhaust combo especially when rev matching.


2011 saw several updates the suspension settings have been totally recalibrated. Yhe combination of spring rate revisions and dampers, fitted with new high performance valves in addition to reinforced suspension member connectors and bushes, this new set up generates greater traction and stability at high speeds this created more comfortable ride as well. Adjustments were made to the power steering assist mechanism which made for more precise and accurate turn-in as well as greater feedback through the wheel, as well as mechanical diff replaced electronic diff.

These improvements have aloud ISF to cut 8 sec off it's lap time at VIR and 2 sec at Fuji Raceway. Ever year they have made slight improvement up to last model year for ISF which will be 2014. In 2015 RC-F coupe will be released they have not said if they will make sedan variant as of yet.


Here are some pics of my F
