In fact you should probably put tape over all the gauges. They are a distraction on the racetrack.
The backseat in the CTS-V...there's not much room there either by my recollection.
My guess is the IS F is going to be a discontinued experiment. I have absolutely nothing to back that up, and I hope I'm wrong.
I'm a Dallas native although I've lived the last 30 years in Denver. Sewell Village Lexus and Cadillac has a great reputation I thought...my family in Dallas has always thought so. I don't like getting soaked for unnecessary repairs either. I thought Tynan's Nissan in Denver was guilty of upselling, but their service I have to admit is pretty customer friendly.
Anyway, I think the suspension of the IS F is appropriately controlled and nicely compliant. I also think the backseat is surprisingly roomy and a comfortable place to ride. Ingress/egress from the doors is a little tight.
My opinion of this car, is that it's a great sedan for luxury sport touring, but unless you can afford to keep tires, rims and brakes on it, it's not a practical family car for most people as a daily driver.
The CTS-V doesn't fit into GM's future plans either.
How is the IS F selling? Not many were sold in Colorado, but it's sold out. I understand it's going to be available special order only, at one of the Lexus dealers here.
So is the IS F viable? Barely for the time being. But there's never been a street fighting hooligan that can match it for hushed sophistication and comfort, and that includes the CTS-V. I'm in love with it.
I'd be game for a Colorado meet...We should have a Colorado meet for sure. I can round the other boys up and you guys can give feedback on the coilovers for your self.
I got the last 2008 then, at least as of last week. It had been on the showroom floor, smoky granite mica. I was told by a very nice young couple, that there was a black 2009 coming in. I met them the night after I purchased mine, when Stevenson hosted an introduction party for the 2010 sport utes. They saw it where I had parked it, "look the gray one's back." I honestly had no idea about this but they said they had been looking at mine all month, had been down at Kuni and the last two they had were gone the same day, and came back to Stevenson to buy it 15 minutes after I was already signing the contract.I picked up the second to last one from Stevinson Lakewood and its been great.
So funny but so true. I hear you, Krell, I second. You really captured my sentments, bro!EDIT: I have always likes BMW's styling and performance, but I cannot stand the driver demographic and did not want to be part of it. Just a personal opinion I have had since I lived in Chicago.
That's Thanks to the "FREE" maintnance that is "included" in your purchase lolMy wife has free service on here BMW 335i convert. for the first 50k miles. I now know how they do it.
I took my ISF in a 1k miles for a check up and 5k for the first oil and filter change.
My wife called the BMW dealer when her car hit 5k to schedule the oil/filter change and they told her not to being it in, to wait until she got a change oil light. She now has 12k miles on it and still no light.
I will probably have the oil and filter changed at Kwik Kar Lube for my own peace of mind.
At the rate it is going they may never furnish any service during the first 50k miles.
