I have also replaced the stock 4300k HID bulbs with 6000k GARAX HID bulbs. I have installed a 6000k HID kit in the fog lights. Also the halogen City Lights have been replaced with 6000k LEDs. Color matching on all 3 is very close and looks tasteful and exotic. S4Play rear Diffuser is also installed.

Everything is about as good as you could expect to find on a used car. Perfect Carfax, Full maintenance performed by and history available from Lexus. This is a very CLEAN car with a CLEAN Title. No accidents, No damage, No issues or problems.
I see my car as a reflection of myself. I take great pride in this very nice and very fast car. All performance parts were installed by a performance shop in Lubbock, TX. (I recently moved to Kansas City, MO from Texas) I will gladly let you talk to the shop that did the work. I have nothing to hide. All modifications are Bolt-On only. No engine intervals nor factory tuning has ever been messed with or touched. And although I've always wanted to, NOS has never been installed. The car is plenty fast for me however, producing approx 550 horsepower (approx 430 whp). If you can get the tires to stick, this car should be capable of high 11s and 120+ mph in a quarter mile. This car can easily beat stock C6 corvettes, GT 500s, CTS-Vs, etc. There isn't 1 thing mechanically wrong with this car. This is my daily driver and I drive the car to and from work and the majority of the miles are highway miles. The car is extremely reliable and I would feel good letting anyone drive this car on a cross country road trip. 400-800 mile day drives are no problem as the seats are very comfortable. You can expect 26-30 mpg on the highway thanks to the incredible 8 SPEED transmission. I searched high and low for what I felt was the perfect exhaust. The exhaust is now about as perfect as it can be balanced between sound and power. ZERO drone, nice low, unobtrusive rumble when driving normal and much more aggressive once you get on it. This is my daily driver as its soo comfortable you almost can forget it's anything other than stock. Always garaged, and I'm extremely selective of where I park it as I am not a fan of door dings. The only thing I can think to say that isn't perfect are the rims as the first owner rubbed a few curbs and there are a few normal rock chips on the front of the car. It isn't that noticeable to me so I haven't bothered repairing either. Included in the sale will be all stock parts to include: Intake Airbox assembly, exhaust manifolds, exhaust and other misc items. The exhaust is straight through right now but a quick swap to the stock exhaust from the headers back and the car is emissions compliant with in-line OEM catalytic converters... for inspection purposes. However, the Borla exhaust has built in resonators that appear to be "cats", most can't tell the difference. =) The Intake Manifold and Throttle Body are the original OEM parts that are "Improved". There are NO dreaded Check Engine Lights or codes thrown. This car WILL NOT disappoint. The car was just serviced by Lexus using Full Synthetic Mobil One Motor Oil and I have brand new OEM rear brake pads in the box ready to be installed. Front brakes are less than a year old and the tires are filled with Nitrogen. I'm asking $37,000 for the car, thousands more have been invested. If you plan on improving on a stock IS-F, you can't do it better than what I've put on this car. I have been VERY selective on what goes on the car. I think I've given a pretty good description of it but if you have any other questions feel free to contact me. $36,000 (price lowered) is for the car, to include ALL stock and after-market parts. Serious Inquires only. I'm in no hurry to sell the car so please don't bother with low-ball offers. I don't want to waste your time or mine.

I would consider a trade valued up to approximately $3-5k to come off the overall price for a nice, 2000+, clean, dependable car as a daily driver that I dont have to worry about where I park it. My preference would be Japanese and Sporty but not necessarily a requirement.

I'm selling my IS-F because I am getting married in May and I am going to be the only one paying for this wedding. I am torn between selling it and keeping it, believe me. This is just the right thing to do for me at this time. The future buyer however will NOT be disappointed.

I don't always get notified when I have a PM on here for some reason so please contact me via email (please include 2008 IS-F in subject title so that I don't accidentally delete it). Thanks for Looking and have a great day.
