Just quick random questions:

1. I have a black ISF, has anyone noticed that the paint seems a bit "soft"? I have some many little scratches!!!!!!!!!!! Like around the door handles, i feel like a tiger gets in my car everyday and scratches the paint with its claws!!!

2. How many horsepower do we have while just driving? Do we really have 417hp????

3. How can I get my rear view mirror to stop vibrating so much? It drives me crazy....


I guess that's all i the questions I have for now........THX

I have a black IS-F as well, and yea, the paint seems soft. I have a lot of very fine scratches on the hood. Not sure how they got there (garaged most of the time). Sucks.

Most of the questions have been answered already, but I'll add a few more links.

Get a clear bra, though it sounds like you already have some chips.
Under the door handles I still have some scratches, just try to keep it well waxed, put some extra ventureshield on?

2) Yes, The engine is rated to have 417HP (measured at the crank). That being said, the actual Rear Wheel Brake Horse Power is going to be lower.

talks about actual ISF Dyno Numbers.
Here's a wiki article on what that means:

Don't concentrate so much on the numbers as the feel of your car. See how it acts when its cold, warmed up, in sport, in manual. Just enjoy it!

1) Wreck your front end, get a new one, install a clear bra. Hey, it worked for me!
2) I don't see any reason to doubt the 417 HP rating.
3) Not sure. This only happens when I have the stereo very loud.

Thanks for all the answers could've searched but was kind of lazy, honestly.... Not doubting the horsepower just had heard somewhere that sometimes the car says 417hp for example and you really have access to 380-390-400.... But thanks for the answer..............
