I'd still rather have a 911 turbo. Cayman's are nice, though.

And a 95 Maxima, which I still drive more than the Porsche or the Lexus.

The only one I have handy is this one after a shopping trip:



I'll take others later if you'd like. Any shot in particular? The interior of the IS F is really pretty much the same as all IS cars. Their are some F logos, a metallic carbon fiber look on trim pieces, and the seats are bolstered a lot more. Unlike other ISs, the IS F seats do not have a cooling function as they could not fit with the extra bolstering. I have the NAV override switch aftermarket mod (about $400) as well, which lets me input addresses while the car is moving. In comparison, the Porsche does not need any mods to do that. However, Porsche nickel and dimes you to death. I spent close to $10,000 in interior options alone. I still have to order a new steering wheel so I can have audio/phone switches on it.

Here are the other pics from that trip. I nearly crapped my pants when a cop did a double take when he drove past me that day.




And yes, the leather did indent for a few days, but thankfully went back to normal.

Wow I have never seen that many lego boxes. But you have a Lexus IS and a Porsche and you still kept the Maxima, that really says something right there!

And if you can afford a IS and a Porsche I think you might have some spare change to turn that 95 into VIP wheel gap eliminating, turboed, 250HP, BEAST!

The IS F seats blow away the Cayman's. You are really snug in the IS F and not as much in the flatter seats of the Cayman. I paid the extra to get the extended leather option (about $2500) in the Porsche, but the leather in the IS F is softer, and feels much more expensive.

Out of all my cars and I own three others besides the three you see, the Maxima is the one I am most attached to. It's the first car I paid for completely on my own and I've got close to 250,000 miles on it. I've paid way more than it's worth to keep her running. Even my mechanic has advised me to sell her, but she is the one car that I can't imagine getting rid of.

Let's just say that I have the world's largest Lego minifig collection. And if I were to sell my entire Lego collection, I would be able to buy a Ferrari F430. The pics you see are from one of my shopping trips. The most memorable one I had involved having the store employees unbox all the Lego and stuffing the car so much that I lowered the windows and shoved bags of Lego until the car couldn't fit any more. Oh man, I regret not ever taking pics of that. I think I managed to fit some $9000 worth of Lego into the car that day. Every time I used the brakes, an avalanche of Lego would casade down on me. I learned to be more careful after that day, which is why in the pics you see here, I still have decent forward visibility.

The other cars are not as interesting to enthusiasts:

- 99 SLK 230 with AMG package
- 08 LX 570
- 07 Honda Odyssey (soon to be replaced by one of the new 2011 Odyssey or Sienna)

It seems like the only time you come on the forum is to either brag about your cars (which you do so in almost EVERY post you make including the one where you paid off your $65k IS F in 6 months) or to have your ego stroked like a $40 hand job.

Either way, this is the typical profiling of a narcissistic tool.

Wow. What a douche bag thing to say. Outside of this thread, the majority of my posts have been about Maxima questions and how much I love my Maxima. There was a two threads where I bought up my other cars. The first is one someone claimed the IS F has poor range. I identified myself as an owner as it was relevant to the discussion. The second time it came up was when someone commented on whether I could afford both the IS F and the GT-R. At which point, I explained that the IS F was paid off.

Perhaps in your jealous, impotent rage you were reading way too much into it?
