Hello there!!

I do not have an IS-F yet but I will be an owner soon! To all the married guys out there, am sure most of you had to seek conjugal approval first to buy such a car. I did and wifey said yes!!!
The only trade off is that I have to own the car for more than 5 years as I have a penchant for losing interest and changing toys after only a couple of years.:p
I am glad I found this site and looking forward to contribute..:)

When I read the title of your post I thought that some lucky member's wife agreed to a three way.

BTW, congrats on the new car.

I didn't have to ask approval with mine, she actually wanted to beat me to it! I said, "No, you had your chance, now it's my turn to get what I want!" Anyway, congrats to your new toy!

Congrats on the approval! Let us know if you have any other questions or need help finding an F in the particular color exterior/interior with options. There are very knowledgeable people on here. Congrats again and welcome :cool:

lol, that is hilarious, I had the same discussion and she said yes too. Only difference was mine was a bit more lenient and said it has to be 4 years :D:D:D.... Truth be told i imagined getting bored after 2 years but at this rate i'll be sad to give it up in 35 months :(..... Enjoy my friend!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have actually been shown the 2009 Ultrasonic blue and the 2010 starfire pearl ( I remember it having a different style rims than the blue one) at Wayzata. I am still debating if I am getting a brand new one or slightly used unit. Am actually driving to cheesehead country and Chicago this weekend to look at possibilities. Its weird that Minnesota does not have used units for sale and Wisconsin have them in numbers.

This is correct they changed the rims for the 2010's.

I had the same wife conversation when we purchased our second F. I actually went to the dealership intending on buying an IS 250 AWD or a GS. We saw a Lexus owned 08 IS-F in Black and decided to ask a bit more about it. We went back a few days later figuring the 08 was a left over and come to find out it was used with 6000 miles on it. Fortunately there was a brand new 2010 Red IS-F in the showroom to make the long story short we ended up with the 2010. My wife wanted an F because of the way it handles and the fact that it can move out of it's own way unlike her previous car. I have a feeling if you can get your wife in the car for a test drive it won't be so hard for her to say yes. What's the worst that can happen she says no again?

Wow..you must really love the IS-F as you have two.:)
Wifey drives an Audi A4 convertible and she only cares about the top down motoring.
