drove home with the biggest damn grin you've ever seen, enjoyed the attention, sat in the car at home for awhile, taking it in, then got out and stared at it awhile, then stared some more, then tried to stop grinning, then sat in it some more, then drove it for a short while, then parked it for the night. went to sleep with a huge ass grin and visions of break in period ending dancing in my head.

Go in and demand they give you your money back because you made a mistake and you really wanted an Acura.heh heh lol


Actually you want to check for dents,scraped paint, or a ripped up interior such as torn leather or rips in the carpet or cracks in the dash. Make sure their are no cosmetic problems with the car. Do all of this before you sign off on the delivery. If you find any problems do not sign and have the dealer fix the problem.

If there are problems it is still not too late to get an Acura.

take a picture and call it 'before'. then start doing some major mods the next day...
mods could include 20" rims, custom-fit altezza body kits (as they won't fit on your IS), huge exhaust, put on fake altezza tailights...etc.etc.etc....
p.s. don't mean to start a flame as i know some ppl's on this board hate mods!!!

Oooh the title on this thread is just asking for smartass remarks
I'm actually very impressed with the restraint.

Thank you for all your inputs. I was mainly interested in some kind of maintenance steps I should do right after I pick up my IS.

SoundSpeed, thanks for your advice. Btw, I already have an Acura 1.6EL which is not available in US.
