Default New Member - JohnMorgan w/ Project OREO

So I've been lurking this forum here and there for quite sometime, but decided to join.
This is my car, I call it OREO since it is obviously white and black.
IS250 6SPD Manual
ISF body conversion (minus rear) - wanted the looks without the gas and I am not passing this off as an ISF car at all
Matte white paint
Black Tenzos (I know the offset is TERRIBLE, they're just interum wheels)
Custom coilovers
Straight axleback exhaust
JDM tail lights
the car was a little dirty when I took these pictures so please don't bag on me too hard, also I know I need a thicker tire in the rear

It's pretty deceptive, except the fact I don't have any badges on the car.

The body parts had to be test-fitted, the only real modification was drilling new mounts for the fenders and the bumper guard for the front, otherwise everything was fine.
I can only imagine the wave of negativity...

The hood is slightly off, made more obvious by that angle.

As for the wheels, if I got some Work Vs-XXs I would be set

I don't care how over-played they are

No hate here - I see M kits on BMWs all the time. Looks clean - now you can put the Wald kit on.

Hahaha do a conversion and then put the Wald on the F components! That would be awesome!

+1. I was just about to say wrong section. Anyways, do you still have the IS250 hood? If it fits, I think that would look better. Never liked that bulge in front. Makes the car look like a whale. Just my 2 cents since you're not trying to pass it off as an F.

Car looks great btw. Are you going to share any info on your custom coilovers?
