I just picked up an '08 USB IS F on Monday and I'm absolutely loving it! I've always admired the IS F's while driving my '08 Evo MR the past two years, and the used prices on them made it the right time to make the switch. I'll post pics when I hit 10 posts.

The Evo was a ton of fun: mean looking, stuck to the road like glue in the turns and with a sport mode that is more aggressive than the F's sport mode. While I'll miss the Evo in the snow, the F is just so much more. I don't think I'll ever tire of the sound of the V8, especially past 3600 rpm. And the interior is just so much nicer in the F. The much-publicized poor ride quality of the F is better than the Evo's ride quality, and while I don't buy these cars for the gas mileage, the fact that a V8 gets significantly better mileage than a turbo-4 is just crazy. I still can't stop smiling whenever I look at my F!

I'll definitely look in to that header upgrade... thanks for the tip. I've only seen one F in Reno, and that was about a year ago. I'll keep an eye out for you; what color is yours? Have you driven your F in the winter here (with snow tires, I assume), and how was it? That was my only reservation, but I decided to go for it anyway. See you around!
