I'm 20 years old and purchased my IS-F with my own cash. I bought a Black IS350 with 23k miles on it in February, and then traded it in for an Ultrasonic Blue IS-F a few weeks ago. These are the first two cars I owned myself, before I was driving my dads 1996 SC400, which is over 13 years old and has yet to encounter a mechanical prob...

I only had it for about 9 months. My insurance company dropped my coverage on it (I was 22 at the time) and I couldn't keep it. I ended up trading it for a '93 525i (was 4 years old at the time). Fun car, but it was a nightmare to maintain and repair.

I loved that GSX and regret selling it to this day.

Don't regret it too much, cuz once I started upgrading the car, stock parts started falling apart. THe turbo blew, the wheel well was huge and the front bumper was too low and the tranny was going out. It was fun though to destroy mustangs and Trans Am especially off the line. I was pushing 22 psi though. I found from that experience that making a Frankenstein's Monster out of my car with parts from different companies was a bad idea. Now I just trust the countless hours of engineering that go into cars that are stock. Turbo cars are fun, but not fun to maintain.
