Hey there! It was me in the SSII E92 on 295 yesterday. I saw you take my on-ramp in your IS-F and follow down to my exit 8B. That little blast at the end was fun. I'm down for anything so PM me if you want to catch up.

Cheers,

Steve

I haven't seen an IS-F in person but im anxious to see one.

There was one IS-F here down in Manila that drove into a flooded road I believe, got his engine blown

His was the first one I've seen in person but I knew what it was right away even from the front. It had a nice, aggressive stance and sleek lines. Of course, it's snowed here a lot lately so both of our cars were pretty dirty. The pics he posted look a lot nicer than the in person one did today but dirty car plus a brief look passing each other at 80 doesn't afford much of a real assessment.

If we do get to meet up, I'll let you know my close up impression.

I am from RI. When the weather breaks a little we we should all get together. I have never seen a ISF in person so I think it would be cool to see one. I have had my M3 since May. Also I have not seen to many M's around RI either, it would be nice to see who's out there.

Hi Steve, that's great you're on this board. We should definetly all meet up as car enthusiasts. I personally haven't seen the M3 in too much detail either. Yours is the first M3 I've seen on the road. I literally just landed in San Diego and won't be back until next weekend. I look forward to meeting up with some of you. We could do a photo shoot or something. I can't wait to tale the snow tires off the car and for spring to come around. Yes my car is Sooo salty and dirty. Black shows everything!!!

Sounds great. Hit me up when you get back and maybe we can do a winter NE get together or arrange something for the early spring. Enjoy Cali.

By the way great idea for mounting your front plate. I've been looking for an alternative to drilling.

Thanks. I didn't love it at first but the offset has grown on me and I kind of like how different it is.

Here's my winter snow tire setup. Running 19" Blizzak LM-25. Works great!

















That's one hot IS-F. Nice pics as well!

Steve, we should take photos of the same quality of images I've posted above of your M3. I also noticed yours is debadged. I was thinking of an alternative to drilling into my front bumper. I'm seeing how long I can get away with it.

I would love to do that. You obviously have some serious photog skills and it would be great to see that level of quality with my car too. I starting debadging my cars with my first M3 and now I have done it to everyone since. This one lost its badge the moment I got it into my garage.

Love the IS-F, almost bought a blue one. That blue is simply jaw dropping, the car also looks worlds better in person. I got to test drive it, and it is an impressive slushbox, even if it wasn't my preference for transmission. I ended up choosing the BMW and I think it was the better choice for ME. But don't worry about some of the guys around here, they are a little sensitive. Awesome pics too.

The ISF looks pretty nice, but just wish the tailpipes were as functional as they look.

x2. I was one of the few people that actually like the stacked quad tips. I just wish they were connected, even if there was an advantage to leaving them disconnected. It just makes it seem as if it wasn't authentic. I think it looks good though, and gives the F line something to make them unique in a sea of similarity, and companies not willing to look outside the box.

No way that's not photoshopped LOL.

I have seen 3 IS-F's so far and they have a great presence, but I won't have an automatic in a car with that much power.
