Hi all,

Im Raffy David. I have a SGM 08 IS F. Im a friend and customer of oarngemig who is also on this forum. Like him, I also have (he sold his though) an 07 STI and I take it out to Time Attack events quite a bit. I'm really enjoying the IS F around town and occasionally on the racetrack too.

Looking forward to learning more about this car here and meeting new friends.

Ill post pics of the car after I put up 10 posts.

:):):)

Welcome to the site Raffy. How long have you had your F? Did you have to have it imported? Enjoy the ride!

Hey Raffy, I am Filipino as well but am based in the U.S. I was actually in the Philippines just yesterday for my bro's wedding last week and I missed my IS F so much while there. I wish I can run it on the Skyway or that star highway in Pampanga. Great to hear that you guys over there are IS F owners. Mabuhay!

I bought it in March from a friend. It had 1700miles when I got it. Currently, I'm at 3500 miles.
Wow that is low miles for a 2008. I take it this is your daily driver. I bet there are some fun roads to take your F on. Are you a big car guy? What type of other cars have you owned?

Welcome to another kababayan! I grew up in Makati! Not sure if you know Jon DeGuzman. He drives a black ISF there.

Yes, its my DD for now. Im kind of a car guy and I really enjoy doing time attack events. I currently have an 09 Forester Turbo (Grey, AWD) 00 TT Roadster (Tuned, Grey, AWD) and an 07 STI (Tuned, Grey, AWD). Since I got the F, Ive barely touched these cars. The Lexus is a great car around town and on the highways.

yea, when I first got my F I wasn't planning on making it my DD, but I ended up selling my Acura because it just sat for 4 months. This car is addicting, especially in sport mode durring gear chages above 3500rpm.

Since it became my DD I decided to change the suspension to be a little more forgiving. I put on the Tien springs. I love them. the ride is softer, but hugs the corners better. I still can't figure that one out. Also put on the F sport rear sway bar, did that before the springs.

have fun.

Look who's here! Welcome to the club, Raffy. I've been MIA for quite sometime, tied up with work and other stuff.
By the way does anyone remember the model of the BBS Magnesium which I think was posted by Big Mike? I have to give my WEDS SA67 a rest since I changed my rear tires to 275 35 19 as they were rubbing big time. I already rolled my fenders and it was still rubbing at the rear part of the fender, the area where the bumper meets the fender. A drag since I like the weight of the WEDS. I figure I need offset 45 with the 275s. WEDS was 35.

Sorry Raff, didn't mean to sidetrack the thread.

Hey Raffy, I'm ordering some parts for the LS400. Would you like me to get you an F Sport rear stab? It's probably one of the best add ons for my F. Great improvement in handling. Don't worry you don't have to gauge my mood before it's installed, :) Sorry guys, some kind of an inside joke between Raffy and I.

^^^ no need to be sorry. I think it is great when people know each other use this forum. It helps the F community get stronger IMO.
