Yes I have. I Like the older ones better. Though these don't look as bad as I expected in person.

I've seen them on every IS F color in the last few weeks. I still am not a fan of them. And the reason being is the busy design of the spokes. Now if it were a more traditional BBS mesh look, then that would be a different story. :)

Ha-ha! A lot harder to clean with the stock pads on!

Here's a 2010 I took pics of at the LFA Press Preview at Homestead-Miami Raceway last Wednesday...

Definitely not a fan of the new wheels. Looks like the wooden frames to an old grandfather clock or something.

I'm so glad I went with an 09, with the two tone Samurai Blades.

Like others were saying before, the new ones would definitely be frustrating to clean to remove brake dust! :D

^^^^Wouldn't have made a difference for you. All the Canadian literature states that the model year 10 ISF will have the same wheels as the '09 model.

You can still get the original BBS "samurai blades" BTW.
Really? I had heard that would be the case prior to the launch of the new car. However, neither the literature or the web site say that the older wheel is optional on the new car. Is it a No Cost option?

I just took delivery of my 2010 Canadian Starfire Pearl and got the two tone Sammy Blades. Personally I was surprised to seem them but I like the Sammy Blades design better so guess I lucked out. Perhaps they are using up all remaining rims before moving on to the new style?

Congrats! Whereabouts are you in Canada?

Thanks, I am out West in Calgary. Just love the IS F! such a beautiful machine.

Back on topic, having a look at the Canadian site again, it seems the new rim design isn't displayed anywhere. I guess us Canadians still get the two tone Samurai blades design :D
