    2008 Lexus IS F
  1. No.. When I purchased my new IS-F in 2008, it was "the only one the dealer was able to get"... and it was recommended that I load it with every Lexus option.. including 'special' wheels (almost 4K) ... When I brought it into a snow tire expert, the guy said that he wouldn't mess with the 'special wheel package' so I don't use it on icy or snow covered streets... BTW, aside from the Paul Levinson sound and Nav. system, the dealer said that he got a message from Lexus corporate and warned that the IS-F was very high on the list of 'wanted' special cars to be stolen and shipped overseas...so they talked me into installing a "Lojac" stolen vehicle tracking system and a secret 'hidden' K-40 front/rear radar detector... I got tired of the constant "K-Band/Xband messages and shut it off years ago... Other than a quick 'burst' which lasts a few seconds, I drive it very conservatively... rarely over the speed limit.. but I am an acceleration junkie... My 1987 Buick Grand National GNX could burn up a new set of rear tires in about 40 seconds...My friends would always plead with me to 'smoke up their street' when I was leaving..... and that GNX easily could. I enjoy driving my IS-F 'sleeper' more than my Porsche 911.
  2. I love my 2008 IS-F .. but she doesn't like snow... she thinks horsepower will make her go anywhere.. <LOL> I live where the streets are plowed well... otherwise I would leave it in the garage
  3. did you ever get a reply?? I haven't found it at all..
  4. I also have a 2008 Lexus IS-F... I Love it... only 27,000 miles and since I got it in 08, Lexus replaced the battery in 2011.. Enjoy this amazing automoble..
  5. Some of us have been fortunate enough to be able to afford cars that can reach almost 200 mph... but the longer I live, I become more aware of the utter stupidity it takes to use excessive/uncontrollable speed on other than controlled, track conditions.
  6. I am still concerned that after all this work, how 'comfortable' will the ride be? I need more info before considering this mod.. thanks so much.. ( I love my LS-F) but the hard ride prevents me from marrying it (LOL)
