New to the ISF

Hi folks,

Just checking in to say hello. My name is Manny, and I just purchased my first ISF on Monday. 2008 Matador Red, 64k on the clock, certified used through Hendrick Lexus here in Kansas City. Not much has been done to it. Previous owners did tint the windows, and add some protective film to the rear view mirrors. The dealer shod it with Pilot Super Sports, so I am on the hunt for some "affordable" winter tires. I realize that affordable and ISF don't really go together lol.

The ISF has been on my list of dream cars for some time, and the stars just happened to align enough for me to snag this one.

My wife and I are both photographers so we can be a bit picky when it comes to pictures. I have been around cars my whole life, mostly in the Honda arena, and even owned my own tuning and parts company for a time. I've been slowly moving past them, although I still have my 1992 GSR in storage.

Anyway hope to meet some fellow owners locally, and make some new friends.

M.

First crude pic.

Thanks guys.

I am so glad I opted for the color. I have been getting compliments constantly.

I think the plans this far will be:

Black out trim
Grill delete
11 steering ECU upgrade
Front/Rear Diffuser

And I think that's all for now.

Nice and clean! Great pics too! I just bought an IS-F as well but haven't had a chance to do any pics yet. Will start a new thread when I have some to share. I'm really excited to be driving this car now tho it's been on my list for a while!
