I was stopped in a first lane in an intersection...this driver in a honda civic on third lane was going crazy rapidly pointing his finger at my car. I think he was trying to say..." dude, that's a bad @$$ car!" I can read lips!:lol:

Damn it.. I can't wait to see the reaction when I get mine! This city is full of little riced out Hondas that sound twice as loud as they are fast. I can't wait to show them the V8 Fury too :) Enoy the people staring while it lasts, I hope to join in the fun soon.

I catch people taking double and triple takes. I also see random flashes at night from cars nearby (probably camera phones). Today I visited the dealership to thank my salesguy, I couldn't find any parking spaces so I parked in the used car lot. I walked away and came back later.. saw people standing in front of my car asking salesmen if they could purchase my vehicle. I told em sorry.. but I'd let it go for $80k. :)

I see people looking at the car all the time. Honestly I'm afraid to park it sometimes. I wish there was a button I could push to put it in stealth mode and makes it look like a normal car. Then when I hop back in and push the ISF button and the fenders flare out exposing the side vents :) Had a porsche cayman give me a thumbs up on the highway tonight.

not gonna lie, I freaked out when I saw an IS-F on the highway. I yelled at my mom to catch up to it but she doesnt know how to go faster than 100km/h

We finally caught up to it while it was at the exit ramp, so damn nice -.-

like you guy I get looks one day coming from work some girl and her mom were behind in there RX350 and she startes snapping her camera phone. Also I had a couple of guys in porsche's a carrera4 and twin turbo check out the car. Also speaking of giving the thumbs up I was in a shopping and some pedestrain saw the car and gave me the thumbs up. My co-workers all love the color choice. Going to work in the morning yesterday I got a look from an older guy driving an aston martin db9 there nice cars.... Its funny how this car draws attention especially from the beemer crowd..hehe take care

Besides the added attention since this car is rare here for now I would have to say having to fill up the tank 4x per week.

I agree with everything that has been stated about owning the IS-F, it does draw attention in my area. Since having my IS-F...I have found small groups of teenagers around my car when I return from shopping or doing some errands. Most have been very respectful. However in two months, I have had my black pearl chrome valve caps stolen, one black pearl emblem stolen, and one F badge (rear) stolen when I leave my car parked in a grocery store or shopping mall. I have now resorted to only going grocery shopping at 7am (right when they open), not parking my car at the mall, not parking my car at the movies, etc. I must admit the stress of being somewhere with my car out of view takes the fun out of going out if I am driving. I agree with others that having a flashy car is nice when you are in the car and able to keep an eye on it, but it also makes you worry when you have to leave it parked for extended periods of time.
