Ok so I have been observing this over the past few months... is it just me? So its easy to spot an IS in your rearview mirror. lately I have been having ISs dip and doge through traffic to catch up to the ISF. if and when they make it through traffic they pull up beside just enough to show off there FSPORT badge. Even had one try and race me at a light (didnt entertain the thought btw). REALLY? why in the hell would someone risk life/limb and there car to do this? I DONT CARE THAT YOU HAVE AN FSPORT BADGE. I am an IS fan of all levels. before my F I had a 300 my lady has a 250awd but I have never went out of my way to show off my vehicles, just plain dangerous and stupid.
My rant of the day :) have a good one

I haven't had any negative experiences with F-Sport IS's but I do see a lot. Even CT F-Sports (which is weird to me), but anyway....

They all seem chill and don't drive any different than a normal IS. At least that's my experience....

Edit: Oh, but I hate the F-Sport badges...it makes it more difficult to spot other F's when you only get a quick glance.

The badge seems forgivable now I've seen IS owners installing IS-F front bumpers...
The front bumper isn't the reason why you bought the F is it? Besides isn't that the most sincere form of flattery?

Dangerous is relative. There are people on the road who have vision problems, seizures and other disorders that make them unfit to drive (I work in a hospital and get to see the outcomes all the time). In my personal/professional opinion, when someone drives in that manner they are actually more aware of their surroundings. Dangerous drivers drive while texting or making a phone call or doing make up or shaving or any other number of things besides DRIVING quickly. Anyway I digress.

I've not noticed the phenomenon but I've only owned my car for a little under 2 weeks. However, had that been me, I might have offered him the view of the back of my car.

When I see an IS I honestly look for 2 things so that I know to throw the deuce at a fellow ISF: a larger/blacked-out fog light area, and the fender badging. On my car (white) both of those stand out quite a bit as do the fender vents. But on the dark gray and black cars I can't tell until we've driving past each other.

But I have noticed that the F-Sport badge is a silver on white vs the blue on white of the ISF.

I was driving today and saw a fella (obsidian) ISF at the end of I-95 S going to Coral Gables (just outside Downtown Miami). I pulled up next to him all happy and threw deuces in recognition of his F. The fella in qestion flicked me the bird and tried to speed off. I have a feeling he wasn't in the correct gear so I took off after him, overtook his ignorant @ss and cut him off.
