5th Gear's IS-F road test:

Very "beeping" funny. You'll see what i mean when you watch it.

The way it handles on track reminds me of the C63 AMG... this is no M3 beater.

A car should not throw the tail without the request of the driver from the throttle. A car for fun but not polished driver's tool, especially with that annoying beep.

I like the looks though.

More exclusive than an M3. Good. They could keep it.

It seems like in the most part Tiff where purposely throwing out the tail and i'm sure he had the VDIM off.

For some reason I never really warmed up the IS-F's looks but it's OK. It's certainly no M3 though especially on a track. The M3 seems to be way more controllable.

IMO, it looks like Tiff is actually enjoying the car's handling and engine quite a bit - he's smiling quite a lot. I wonder if the beeping can be "customized" to not occur. Probably can - it's only software.

I like the way the car looks except the tail pipes. It seems completely counter intutive to place pipes one above another.
