...of my new Blue on Black IS-F. Unfortunately it's raining here in Sunny Florida today, so no pictures just yet. Initial impressions are as follows:

Likes:
------
  • Ride
  • Noise level below 3600rpm
  • Noise from engine above 3600rpm :)
  • Audio system
  • iPod integration (dealer installed the Vaistech module)
  • Bluetooth
  • Navigation
  • Voice Activation system for Audio, etc
  • Color is sweet!

Dislikes:
----------
  • Bluetooth won't download my contacts from my iPhone into the phonebook?
  • A little snug in the Cabin, but not terrible (I'm 6'2", 240lbs so anything is snug for me)
  • Trunk opening is very small, even though trunk itself is pretty big
  • Back seats won't fold down

That's all I have so far, more to come over the next few days. :D

Chris, Congrats on the UltraSonic "F" !!!
Just to let you know, the IPhone itself is the reason your contact's won't download. And the rear seats won't fold because of the bolsters would not allow a "lay flat" position.

I just left Florida a few days ago where indeed it rained almost everyday all day....

True...but my 335i downloaded them...:) Might be that it just used the iPhone's list, I don't actually know. This is not a deal breaker for me, just kind of annoying.

Again, not a deal breaker. It's kind of nice to have the extra storage without having to throw stuff in the backseat. This is really only a problem with I go to the track and I have to bring a bunch of extra stuff in the car for the trip there. ;)

You know that's how it is, it could rain across the street and be sunny on the other side... crazy a$$ Florida. Congratulations buddy... after the first couple hundred miles cruise on I-75 AT 100MPH and blast that stereo to your favorite tune..lol

Hey congrats,

How does the IS-f compare to 335i?

I have a 135i from work currently and it's a psychotic car so I assume the 335 i is also a blast?

Never drove the Is-f yet but what is your take on the subjet.

Thanks, Don-

My wife drives a brand new 335i conv and I have the F. For just cruising around with the top down the 335i is great and a real show stopper. It is Montego Blue Metallic with a cream interior. But for the sheer pleasure of driving I will take my F hands down over the 335i.

You need to drive an F to appreciate it. Mine has almost 10,000 miles on it and I smile each morning when I slip into it to drive to work.

BTW I will be 70 in less than six months and still "feel the need for speed"

dealership near my house. largest volume lexas dealer in the west coast.

u guys might get 1-2 a month, this dealership gets 4-5 a month.
they now have 7 on the lot. contrary to popular belief, good deals can be had if u look. i am 100 percent positive i can get this car for 54k fully loaded with a window price of a shade under 61k.

some people are smart. they realize that if they make a quick sell and make 2k on a car its a lot better than holding off hoping to catch a sucker who will pay 5k over invoice so u can make 6k.
