Hey everyone,

I wanted to introduce myself as I should be joining the boards here full force shortly. I am currently in works with a dealership near me to trade in my 04 Dodge Viper for an 08 IS-F. I'm in the process of putting my viper back to stock since the dealership won't give me money for my modifications. I will be looking to jump into it sometime early next week (Hopefully!!)

Long story short. I recently got engaged and am giving my fiance my current daily driver, my 08 F150. It's paid off so we are selling her car to get rid of her monthly payment and I'm trading in my viper for a new daily/fun car, the IS-F.

I think I'm going to like this route a whole lot more due to the fact that with my work (new home sales) I basically have to drive my truck to work everyday and rarely get to drive my viper (I gotta have 4 doors and 4 seats to drive people around). I'd rather have a nice fun car that I can enjoy on a daily basis, than a boring (to me) DD that I drive 95% of the time knowing a Viper's sitting in the garage.

Anyways, I've owned a bunch of sports cars in the past and I typically go through cars pretty fast. I'm hoping that I'll hold on to the F for longer. It seems like a great car and there's a good following for it. Also, from my reading on here and clublexus, it seems as though the mods are starting to catch up with the car which makes owning one all the more appealing.

Just to give you an idea, the IS-F I'm looking at is a black 08 w/ nav and ML and around 17k miles. Keeping fingers crossed that this goes through but if not I'll still be getting one but it may be a little longer.

I look forward to catching up with the members on this board, shooting the chit, etc...

-Kyle

I go thru cars pretty quick too and I will probably own this one forever. My goal was a Viper and then kids came. I am not at all lacking in the car department with the IS-F. In fact its exclusivity is the greatest appeal in my opinion. You Will Enjoy It!

The car has just over 17,000 miles on it. The dealership replaced the tires, but it's still on stock brakes. Is this something I should tell them to replace or do the stock brakes have more life on them?
