got my smoky graphite yesterday. it's like my honda
s2000 with 3 times more torque and luxury. the automanual is so fast, i don't care to have real manual transmission any more.

i really like the understated styling, i would hate to get the attention of those punk kids wanting to race on street.

I've heard of some people with the Obsidian and other more noticeable colors getting unwanted attention. My Smoky Granite Mica IS-F seems to fly under the radar though. Only two or three people have even figured out what it is in the entire 3 months I've had it, and luckily no one has wanted to race me yet.

Enjoy your new F!

The Smokey G is definately a subtle color. It does help it to stay stealth and fly low under the radar. I know you will enjoy that car and welcome to the club!

Welcome to the site and congrats on your purchase! The SGM, MM and SP (Starfire Pearl) are the three most subtle colors the F comes in :cool: Congrats and can't wait to see pics and hear about how you like the F

I would have to say, the automanual is way faster than a stick... most of the super-cars are all come with paddle shifters as well. can't beat shifting in less than 0.1 seconds or however fast it is... got to love the autoblip function as well, no heel/toe driving needed...

i have the smokey color too... i agree that it is more low key than other colors... so low-key, i think i get hit up by guys that don't even realize that i'm driving a F until they see my rear bumper pulling away from them... haha

Hmmmm... I don't know about the "understated styling." I've been challenged too often by several punks lately... Not worth the time.

Welcome to the family.

Most people know the F badging and the tailpipes. I agree, I get alot of Evo and Sti kids trying to egg me on the freeway. I just let them pass and be on their way. Not worth wasting my gas on. :D
