Welcome! I'd say you made the right decision trading the Audi for a Lexus. German cars can't beat the reliability of Japanese cars...

Congrats on the car, you'll love it! Its funny as those were the two cars I was looking at before purchasing the ISF. I went into my local Audi dealership looking for the S5, the salesman laughed as he told me there was a 12 month waiting list for it! I then saw an imola yellow 2007 RS4 on the lot that really caught my eye. Boy, am I glad I walked away as my username says it all, I LOVE MY ISF!!!

Driving it like I stole it!

Just out of curiosity, how many miles do you need to break the F's engine in? I sort of figured out not many people actually are breaking in their cars in the F's case. For myself I will definitely do it once I receive my car that is being shipped to me...

If I remember correctly, the break in period is 681 miles. Once you get the car, it tells you what to do and not to do during this period

Congrats on the new ride. I am really enjoying mine and I am sure you made the right choice. I have not noticed the rear view mirror vibrating on mine so as others suggested, I would have the dealer check that out. I too went for an 08 demo instead of the 09 because the deal was too good to pass up.

thanks for the info guys I was thinking 1000 miles or so as on the 09 530i they said to run it in until 2000Kms which is about 1200 miles... I like to stay on the safe side to ensure good power and reliability despite the fact that its a lexi!
