Finally last night I was reunited with my precious (then my girlfriend) after my overdue business trip. I had my brother drive down my car from the garage and pick me up in the IS-F along with my girlfriend. I began my hour long trip from the airport to my home and decided to stop at a burger shop on the way home. I had to make a U-Turn at the first light I ran into after getting off of the interstate. When then I look all the way to my left I see a 06 or 07 Porsche 911 Turbo about 4 car lanes away from me... As I am making the U-Turn I take another look to my left and see the 911 completely cut off traffic in order to make the same U-Turn that I am making (obviously it was as soon as he saw the car he cut traffic to follow me.) The driver was about 2 car lengths behind my IS-F as I put the car in Sport/VSC off and in manual mode. I pushed the pedal to the metal and the race was off!!! Surprisingly I maintained the lead till about 80 miles an hour down a smaller highway (overkill) then the driver of the 911 Turbo let off and made a U-Turn to get back while waving to me. He ended up only getting 1 maybe 1.5 car lengths behind me at the end of the minute run!

Now after the delicious burgers and back on the interstate a new SS Trail Blazer pulled up next to me and decided to take off... Big mistake! I gave him about 3-4 car lengths in front of me then I proceeded to punch it. Without realizing it, next thing I know I am looking at the speedometer and I hit right around 150 mph! I turn around and the SS driver is nowhere to be found =(.

I am EXTREMELY and let me stress EXTREMELY satisfied with the decision I made when purchasing this vehicle, as a matter of fact my hand is a little shaky just thinking about the performance that the IS-F gives... I certainly hope that everyone who owns this beast is having as much fun as I am with the car!:D :D :D

Sounds exciting! Glad you got back safely to be able to play around in the F. I'm pretty sure we are all having a lot of fun in the F :) I spanked a regular CTS the other day that wanted to race :)

Anyways, nice to have you back and continue to enjoy the car but be safe
