Thanks!
Yeah the cars been in an accident. I don't really notice the gap but it must be noticeable if you noticed it :[
If you're talkin about the trunk spoiler, it's just oem

Sorry, didn't mean to draw attention to it. Coming from owning BMW's, I notice body panel alignment and fit. Toyota is one of the best after BMW for sure in that dept. Car looks good, now I have to find a good source for an OEM spoiler that can be painted FAP.

IS looks like its coming along great. The WALD front and JP rear look pretty good together. What sides are you planning to get? A WALD rear trunk spoiler would compliment the car very nicely.

How do you like the ride of the TEIN SS?

I was thinking of upgrading my springs to a set of coil overs some time soon. My choices so far have been TEINs and BC.

My0gr81 - you must really pay attention to the small details (: I like that!
skottydznt - yeah I don't go to Keyes Lexus anymore. Just got the car from there and then doing my things at Longo Lexus! Had this car for almost a year now buddy! Thanks though!
Initial G - thanks bro! Car is prettty stiff with the Tein SS coils, coming from stock shocks with H&R springs, but can't complain when your car looks that much better being lower! I know it's not slammed but low enough
I can't speak for BC but Teins were well worth the money!
I want the wald side skirts but again, im 19 and still saving up! It's a project heh

BOOGER GREEN UNITE!

Haha, it's a really rare color. I've actually only seen one green IS250 so far. Everything else is mainly silver.
Really nice car though.

So I haven't updated this page in a while!
Here's what happened after the last update.
Got my FXR Projector retrofit and Orion V2 Angel Eyes ( Second brightest angel eyes out there, also made by Umnitza, maker of beamers OSS angels )
Here's a before and after picture of the retrofit. I had my bumper off, and had my left headlight unscrewed, aimed up, and my right headlight installed. FXR projectors are bi-xenon's so I do not need my high beams anymore but I left the bulb in there so it doesnt just look like a hole
Here's is the difference! It's A-FREAKING-MAZING

Here's the picture of the angels in daylight

Here's a picture further away from the car, facing the California sun


And! Finally got my wheels! Linea Corse LC818's in Hyper Silver. 19x8.5 and 19x10
I am still rubbing tho because of my meaty tires. I'll swap the fronts to 225 stretched to get ride of that and go lower. Excuse my height, had to drive around so lifted my car for the mean time.



Let me know what you guys think. Man, that's a lot of money spent within eight months.
I know most of the stuff I have are either cheaper or replicas, but don't hate. I'm 19, work two jobs, and studying hard. I do not have any payments, so I save seven out of ten dollars, and spend the rest on food, cloths, and of course, my baby Linny! Positive and negative comments are welcomed.

RDIS250AWD- thanks man!
Hieu- thanks bro! Definitely better than before all thanks to you and Tuan. The left side still sags though, Tuan said nothing could be done so I'm thinking about ISF front conversion >___<
rookieIS- thanks man (: Get a lot of compliments on them, but also a lot of hate haha!

Wow, great progress! And great choice on the headlights. Very unique!

Any problems with ordering the front and rear from ebay? Were they packaged well, etc? If possible, could you PM me the seller's name?
