Hi all!

I'm Dixon and I've been lurking around the forums for the past couple of weeks, but I've decided to join today. I don't actually have an IS F right now, but I am planning to get a fully loaded SFP within the next two to six months. I joined this forum also to try and get as much information and insight into the car before I make the splash.

My current car is a 2004 Acura TSX, stock stock stock with OEM body kit and spoiler.

When I do pick up the F, it'll become my DD, as I may either be trading in the TSX or leaving it for my girl to drive.

Hope I can get it soon! :D

Thanks thanks! :D I'm definitely going to go for a test drive some time soon, just that right now school's a bit hectic, so I haven't exactly found time to go, but I'm definitely looking forward to testing it out!

Thanks again! :) I actually went to a dealership today, Don Valley North Lexus, they are having $7000 cash incentives for cash purchasing on the remaining 08 IS Fs, but none are the colour combination I want! :( and the closest fully loaded SFP with black int. is out in BC, so they're not going to ship those here, argh!

But seeing the car in person up close is something else! She's a beauty! I also wasn't able to test the car either, because they just sold both demos last week! :( But they said that if I check back in a couple of days, they might plate one of the three remaining IS Fs as a demo.

Grrr, was looking so much to being able to test it, oh well, maybe I should try another dealership when I have time, haha. :D

omg. i had a 2006 tsx and i can tell you that driving a tsx and the f is not even funny. I know its a 4cylinder vs a 8. but wow everytime i get behind the wheel of the f i have a smile and a gron on my face. The tsx was a good car but drives like it was made for a college girl. the tsx was boring to drive.

Thanks for the welcome! :D Nice! A fellow TSX driver, I wouldn't say the TSX is a boring car to drive (well, definitely compared to the F it's definitely lethargic, haha) but during bouts of spirited driving, I am pretty satisfied with the TSX all in all. It's a good car to get me from A to B with no fuss, and I haven't had any major problems with it. It is getting 'old' though, almost 100,000 km on it, so I think it's time to move on up. :)

For the colour combination, I think I'm pretty set on a Starfire Pearl on Black Leather, but I have yet to see the SFP in person. However, I did see a Smokey Granite Mica, and it looks pretty good, although it blends the whole car together similar colours, with the rims and all. I really want to be able to see a SFP in person!

After a three month delay, I can finally say I'm part of the F family. Pulled the trigger today on a 2009 Series 2 IS F, SFP with Orange/Black two-tone Interior, it'll be ready to be picked up this coming Monday, I'm so excited! :D

Thanks thanks! I've actually pushed forward the date to pick it up, the dealership said they can have it ready by Saturday morning, so I'll have the weekend to enjoy it! Can't wait! :D

I'll post some pictures up when I get my friend to do a photoshoot for me, he's a real car buff, and does wedding gigs on the side, so his photography skills are pretty top notch!

Congratulations. You'll have a blast with this car. Every time I visit my parents, I drive my father's 2004 6spd manual TSX, and it is decent to drive...not fast...but fun. Of course after the ISF, past fun with the TSX will be a distant memory floating in the back of your head.

Thanks all! Had it for the weekend and it was a blast to drive, watching people turn their heads in their cars to look while driving by was a HUGE treat :D
