Photos of my IS-F

Well I've been a BMW fan before. I've owned a Steel Blue E46 323i. This time I decided to try something different and bought an IS-F. I've posted these on the Lexus boards but I figured I'd share them here too.

I'm in the RI area. If any of you ever want me to take a few pictures PM me. So far I've only seen one new M3 on the road and it was in Newport parked. I would love to photograph the new M3

Thanks... So far I love the car. Yes I do know what you mean about the stack quads or even the look. I had to get used to it too. But after driving it for about 2 months now, I've gotten used to it. I love the car so far!

haha.. I know.. I'm sure I'll be back into a BMW before you know it. One thing I liked about having the BMW was BMWCCA and autocrossing.

Well so far I'm pretty happy overall with the car. No mod plans yet. Even the stock wheels I like! Already has Brembo brakes... Tint maybe! I did add XM after I bought the car too.

that hood bulge is ridiculous. I think you should get a new bumper and exhaust asap .

Awesome car though.
