Nothing looks better than our IS F fellas it bad ass.. well hope to hear from u guys..always looking for suggestions...headers and cat back will have to wait a bit cuz my wife will kill me..she didnt know i got the car till late last night cuz my daughter cant keep a secret..she wasnt happy,,oh well lol

Welcome to the forum. Sounds like you'd better get a radar detector as a first mod. I have a Passport 9500xi and it's pretty good. Search the forum threads to get opinions on the different makes.

Welcome to the forum and congrats on the new car. You will love the reliability and comfort of this car for sure. As for the curb rash, bring you car to a reputable tire shop or a good dealership and get some quotes to get them fixed. Depending on how bad the damage is, it could be just a simple blend and paint which should only cost $25-50 per wheel. If it is bad enough it might be better to get them off the car, blended, stripped and refinished. I got a quote for powder coating at around $300-400 for the set.

Welcome and great deal on the car. Its a very enjoyable car and the reliability is something you will love believe me. No bashing BMW I like the M series but M performance comes at a price of dealer visits and the F doesn't.
