Thanks MTV. Yes it's because of the curvature from the lens. Here's a fresh shot from this morning taken. Cloudy day... top of garage.. camera had to come out

Haha I like the glowing aura effect you've got going on around the car

Seriously these are probably the nicest owner-taken pictures of any car I have ever seen.

i think this car superior to m3, i like it a lot, the reason im going with m3 is because there is a coupe, if i was taking a sedan i woulded preffer is-f or c63.

I think dark colors look the best on the isf, hides some of the more questionable lines of the car. Great car none the less, it was fun test driving one!

Thanks.. Yeah I like the first picture too. I just thought it would be a great idea to do a closeup as opposed to getting the whole shot of the car.

I appreciate everyone's comments about the photos even if you're not a fan of the IS-F but the nature of the images themselves. Cheers

I think that's a good thing. All the cars in that class are excellent. Everyone of them have their advantages and disadvantages. This is the general forum and an opportunity for people to see the IS-F from an owners camera as opposed to vendor specific photos. I'm not going to say that the IS-F is better than any of the other cars in the class. I do like the look of the M3 coupe though but I needed a four door this time. Maybe in a few years I'll get into an M.

The front of the car looks weird in other photos of the car I have seen elsewhere, not just his. It's how it is designed.

You trolling my posts now? Run along now, lame smoker.

Just a question --- in the IC I see analog fuel and temp guages, plus digital battery charge and **another temp guage?

No fuel economy meter though like before.

It's an Oil Temp Guage. It starts out at 1 bar... and as the oil temp goes up it goes up to 3. On a hot day and running the car hard, it has gone up to 4 bars for me. 3 is normal operating temperature.
