I will "officially" become an F member by the end of this week. :D Just waiting for the call from the truck driver. I got a 2008 USB/Alpine demo through one of our sponsors, Doug at Lexus of Dayton who located it for me from a dealer in WI. 26xx miles, new Michelin PS2 tires, fresh oil/filter, Nav/Lev, park assist, hl washers, sirius satelite radio, preferred accessory package, and all weather mats. MSRP was $62.1k. Got it for $50k + TTL + my shipping costs.

I will personally vouch and highly recommend Doug for future references and purchases. He answered all of the billions of questions I asked him, stuck through with me and went out of his way in getting numerous things done to seal the deal, and treated me with the utmost respect.

Pics will be up as soon as I get it weather permitting. It's supposed to rain a bit here for the rest of the week. =\ I'll take pics of it coming off the truck and right off of it haha. It's going to get clear bra hopefully by this weekend at Aerotect. Then I'll wash it and take real pics with some scenery.

Next up, I'm going to look at custom plates. Here are my ideas. Feel free to comment. :)

*I'm not sure if the "-" symbol is allowed here in CA. If not, I'll use a half-space instead.
IS-FTW - IS-For The Win
IS-FLIP - a nod to my filipino heritage
IS-FAST - self explanatory, though an attention grabber especially from cops and ricers
IS-FREE - the feeling of freedom you get from driving the F :D
BIGBOY1 - one of my nicknames is big boy haha. no, I'm not big!
WOOCREW - inside joke

Sorry for the long read! I got too excited. :p

Chris, the pleasure was all mine. What a pleasure to work with a true enthusiast! What a unique ISF you've got there. I expect you to burn through a tank the first day. I'm also happy we were able to get your Taste of lexus certificate honored as well! I expect to see some pictures up soon from you!

Let this thread go to show, we are a supporting vendor here to help out any and all with purchasing an ISF or any of the services/parts we offer. Please feel free to email, PM or call if you have any questions for me!

Congrats on the car...sounds like a great color combo....I bought from Doug as well...class act all the way. You should consider getting a painted engine cover as well before it is shipped. I think they look pretty cool and it dresses up the engine bay a bit.

Congratulations Bulls!!! That's funny, my wife calls me Big Boy, though I'm not big either! Must be a Flip thing. Speaking of which, I think IS-FLIP would be good... Check out the picture. Can you see the plate?

Thank you everyone!! Sorry it took me long to respond. The car finally arrived this evening. It's dirty as hell! Long trip from WI to SoCal. Gonna drive it back to San Diego tomorrow night and wash it Saturday. Then Wednesday, it will be going to Aerotect to get partially clear bra'ed. Already drove it around tonight and that intake growl is so addicting! Good thing the car came with a loaded gas tank. :D

Lol, you too?! Maybe it is haha. Nice plate pare! It's gonna be between IS-FLIP and IS-FTW. I think I narrowed it down to those two.

Flip probably wouldnt be a smart term to use as it is a derrogatory term for a Filipino. My screen name coincidentally happens to be "Flip"side, but really had nothing to do with being Filipino American. :)

Really? I did not know that. Thanks for the heads up. Wouldn't want all filipinos to desecrate my ride lol. Ahhh, I totally thought this whole time your screen name was in reference to your heritage. :cool:

I didn't know that either. My buddy at work, who is also Filipino but was born here, calls me Flip. No offense intended though. Anyway, I just discovered today that "flojo" means lazy in Spanish, LOL! I'll just tell everyone it's my gang name! ;P
