Default SB350 Progress Thread

Updated Pics/Mods on Page 3, Page 4

ABOVE THE FOG Photoshoot




_________________________________________________________________________


I bought my 2009 Tungsten Pearl IS350 in December 2008. About a year after owning the car, I decided that I wanted my windows tinted. I went online to see some examples of 2IS’s with tinted windows and discovered Club Lexus. Quickly my eyes were opened and my wallet was emptied to modding this car.

I decided to start a thread to share the progress of my car with Club Lexus. This thread will be updated as I continue to mod my car. Feel free to ask questions and leave comments. Current mods are listed in my CL Garage.

Most of the progress photos are from my iPhone, so I apologize for the quality. Thanks for looking.



Brand new, stock 350:






35% Tint, OEM Spoiler, F-Sport Springs Installed:




Installing 5000K HID Fogs:






F-Sport Intake Installed:




F-Sport Exhaust, Black Peal Emblems, JUN Roof Spoiler, Color Matched Grille Surround Installed:






Weds WedsSport SA55M Wheels and 09-10 GFX front installed:

The Fsport springs are not low enough. Wish I would have done more research before getting these. It was one of my first mods. No clunking, they are the TSIB springs.

looks nice and clean. im a fan of an oem look since im in my early 30s. i would look into getting some bcr coils if its in your budget. id stay away from the H&R springs though. lower than f sport buy harsh ride over bumps.
