I had an interesting day yesterday when it came to the F
I noticed that on Friday morning, while washing the car, there was a huge nail in my front left tire so I called the Lexus dealership to have it brought in (purchased the tire plan) and have them check it out
When I was on my way there I saw my first Nissan GT-R and I have to say, I'm not sure I'm a big fan of the way it looks. It was flying down the opposite side of the freeway and was the titanium color they offer on the car so I didn't get to see it up close but from what I saw, it wasn't anything special. It could of just been the color of the car (which looked really dull and not shiny) but I'm going to continue to wait until I see one up close. Has anyone else seen one and your opinion on it?
When I got to the dealership I went sniffing around the parts department and purchased the new IS-F watch. Its silver with a rubber band and it looks awesome in person, not so much online or the magazine. I sniffed around the showroom and found the only IS-F the dealership had. It was an Ultrasonic Blue on the showroom floor. The manager of the dealership said they were having a huge problem selling them and this was the only one they had in stock, which I found interesting but not surprising. I found out the nail was wider then it was deeper in the tire and didn't puncture so they pulled it out and I was on my way. On my way home I was at a stoplight and pulled behind a Nissan 350Z.
I couldn't see any major modifications and the exhaust sounded stock but he managed to take off from the light a little quick and so I followed a little behind. I let him get two to three car lengths ahead and wasn't in the mood to race but I saw a huge plume of black smoke come out of the exhaust tips from when he downshifted and I said to myself "here we go" I downshifted like hell and was able to pull over a car length and a half on him by 120.
I slammed on the brakes and he passed me and started to weave in and out of traffic like a bat outta hell. I figured if I could pull a car length + from that far behind, its not worth weaving in and out of traffic to prove who's quicker through traffic so I backed off.
Just figured I'd share my little excitement for the day
This doesn't include a spanking of a S2000 or a Scion that both wanted to race
