Hello to everyone. I knew there had to be some place F drivers congregated since in the two months I've owned mine I've only seen one on the road (and it was in a restaurant parking lot)! Northern Virginia here (Ashburn).

I've posted pics in the gallery. Love the car and find it a joy to drive -- it's my daily driver (and I commute to Maryland every day) -- especially since the other one I own is a 2006 Jeep Rubicon Unlimited (with mods). Opposite ends of the spectrum. :)

Looking forward to the forum and discussions.

Welcome to the site! This is a great place to learn about our car and keep abreast of what is available. I only have one warning for you...This site can be very addicting. I don't know what I'm addicted to more, the growl or the info I get here.

Have fun.

Welcome Scott. As a daily driver, what do you think of the fuel economy?

I drive my IS-F daily as well. My overall in-town average has been around 19 mpg, which isn't bad for 416 hp :) My previous car an Acura TL made 21-22 mpg on the same route which was about 3-4 mpg more than its EPA city rating.

I think that's one of the most surprising things about this ride. I've averaged nearly 23mpg since getting it. I don't do that hypermiling nonsense either. :) If I'm not heavy on the foot and keep my highway speed under 80 I've averaged as much as 26-28mpg on a tank.

Muuuuuuuch better that the 15mpg I get in my Jeep or the 16mpg my wife gets in her Xterra.

Amazing! I drive most of my miles in town and my overall avg is 18.4mpg. I normally don't see anything on tank avg much higher than 23 and that only lasts a short time...must be heavy on the foot. I just love to hear the ROAR, I'm addicted to it.

I know what you mean. I also like the double-hit when you punch it. The first hit wakes up your kidneys; the second hit throws them in the back seat.

:D
