Default Apok-C's Continuous Build

Finally got the money to pick this badboy up. 2006 IS350 Matador Red Mica

Got it fully loaded (Idunno if it's the Sport or Luxury package tho...) Mark Levinson w/ Navi and the telescopic steering wheel.

Can't wait to modify it (Already took off the front license plate, illegal I know, but oh well). Already got these planned in this order:

1. Hack the navigation / DVD player
2. Paint the brake cal's (was thinking either red or black, with white lexus decal)
3. Red Out the tail lights
4. Get some Xenon 6k HID Headlights
5. Change out the front grill
6. Possibly Black out the emblems
7. New rims
8. Any other suggestions?

Thanks, I've been trying to figure that out. What's in the sport package that I don't have?

And ya, all my friends live in Chino Hills since I went to Chino Hills High School, so I'm always over there.

Where can I get a Club Lexus decal?

Mainly the sport suspension and sport pedals


Other options the car appears to not have:

park assist (don't see the sensors on the front bumper pic)

Pre-collision system (front grill L would look different)

Headlight washers

rear spoiler (hard to tell for sure without a good rear pic, but doesn't appear to be there)

So at a glance the options it DOES have-

Lux package w/18s
Nav/ML

It may or may not have XM, can't easily tell from looking... you'd need to press the AM/SAT button a couple times and if you get anything besides AM you have it, otherwise not.


Which is nicely equipped, but nowhere near fully loaded.

Anyway, first mod for this, or any other 2IS, should be the F-sport sway bars

Get the sports pedal. It will look 200% better every time you get in to the car.

Congrats on new purchase, welcome to CL... Maybe a body Kit and lower the car a bit.
