I don't use photoshop actually. I utilize Apple's Aperture program to make adjustments to my RAW file images if necessary. If there's something to bright or too dark, you can control the exposure, contrast, brightness, etc. Camera is a Nikon D300.

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.

yea IS-F is a pretty sweet car imo, the reason why it gets so much hate is because its the first "sporty" car from Lexus and everyone had to analyze/detail the shit out of it and even the smallest mistakes had to be pointed out. i am not saying exhaust's can't be better but they are not as bad as some people think, still sounds nice

Hey Nicholas, awesome car. I've seen you on Club Lexus as well.

Thanks deehoo. However I can't wait to change them back to my stock wheels. I personally think the car looks more aggressive with the darker wheels. The snow tires saved me many times this winter. Blizzaks are great

Thanks. I just put the stock wheels back on recently. Hopefully it won't snow up here (crossing my fingers).

Taken after I swapped wheels.

Toyota did make the Supra, which can be considered sporty stock.

I love the IS-F. Lexus made a great car and it's a fact. I'd appreciate it if you didn't post negative comments like this. This post is about me seeing another member of this board on the road and making contact. Never made any remarks about M3 or any other car. So please keep your comments to yourself.

I am the person the OP saw in RI that day. It was a quick run and his car looked stunning. He has already shown through his posts here that he's a good guy and has never bashed the M. In fact, he had nothing but praise for it. Keep your negativity at home. It's not wanted here.

Thanks Wolf-e92. By the way, where did you order your license plate bracket. I'm going to see if I can get one for my car. I don't like drilling into my car. Well I've put my summer tires back on so we'll have to meet up sometime. We'll have to meet up in the mornings and see who can get to your exit first heheh j/k. I look forward to seeing your M3 again! Cheers.

+1

Negative posts like that don't add any value to this forum or the members who contribute to it. Show some class your driving a $60k+ car.

I bought it from here: http://gominigo.com/NHLPB-main.html but they don't list Lexus as one of the cars it fits. It attaches to the front bumper on the BMW via the tow hook and I don't know if your car has one or not.

BTW: I wrapped up my assignment at Fidelity so I don't take that exit anymore. Now we can run all the way up to exit 32 on 128 in Burlington, MA!

Too bad they don't make one for my car. I guess for my inspection I'll have to tie wrap it! Wow up to Burlington huh. That's a long commute. I end up in Hopkinton, MA. What time do you usually leave? We'll have to meet up now that it's slightly warmer than it was when I first ran into you on the road. Glad my summer tires are on. They make a BIG difference even when accelerating hard going 50+ mph. By the way is yours a manual?

No, I'm DCT. I don't have my summer tires on yet though. I'm holding off for a couple more weeks until the temps are a bit higher and my OEM 19s are finished being done in black.

Yeah, the commute to Burlington stinks. If I leave before 6:00 AM, I can get there in about 75 minutes. After that, it's better to wait until after 8:00 AM if I still want to get there in 75 minutes. Leaving between 6 and 8 usually leaves me with a 2 hour commute. Luckily, the DCT is very helpful when in traffic and that is primarily why I got it. I've always been a 6MT guy but with the M as a DD, I went with the DCT.

On the up side, I rode along with a 335 and an S6 on Tuesday all the way up 128 from exit 15 to 26. I've seen some pretty nice rides and even with the traffic, it's fun to just cruise along with them in an enthusiast caravan.

I bet they would make one for your car... its just the rod that crews into the tow hook hole... Call them and they will tell you how to measure it... you would be the first to have one for the Lexus IS-F

Yes that would be nice. I liked this option because I can put it on or take it of whenever I want. I'll call the place and see how fast they can make one.

I to am one who likes the look of the quad pipes. Very sharp car the op has, aswell as the qualiy pics.

You mistook an E60 M5 for an E90 M3, at point blank range.

There is lots about the IS-F to like, the rims for example are probably the best design, the seats are mighty comfortable and the noise is as good as any of it's rivals.

Though not a complete fan of it's overall look I do see the appeal in it's aggressive looks and it definitely looks it's best in Black.

A fine example you have there Nicholas.
