I've currently got a break from work, so I figured I would go ahead and post up about my build. I bought my little lady just over 2 years ago, and after unsuccessfully selling her (dear sweet baby lowballers) for what I thought was a reasonable price (14900 at one point) I have decided to spend some change on her, and get her looking pretty. Side story, I bought her 2 years ago with 70K....after putting 24K on her in a year, I gave her to the wife to drive, and she's going to end up being my summer time fun car (at least until I get an itch to get back into an NSX again)
First off....when I got her, she was a basic IS350. I apparently am not the norm when it comes to buying cars...nav? no...dont ever use it, if I do, it's on my phone. (my wife has it, and all it is it a nice screen
) It was originally a Florida car and did not come with the options of heated/cooled seats....meh, once again, dont really mind not having it. It must be a if you never had it before you dont know what you're missing. And last but not least....HID's didnt have it...Well I was told it had it, only to get pulled over one night for not having my headlights turned on, upon further review, the previous buyer pulled the HID kit and took it with him
All and all it's been a great car, I chose it over the 250, because the one thing I did care about was the get up and go....an extra 100 horses, makes a world of difference....Anywho....on to my build. Two months ago, I opted to get a new 06 bumper with the GFX front lip from Sewell, and while it was gorgeous it just didnt do it for me. I started to fall in love with the 09-10 front end with GFX kit ( the thread with the gent who took pics above the fog really and I mean REALLY had me in love). After kicking it back and forth, I've decided to say let's do it....so here's the rundown of what's to come.....the car is currently at the shop getting worked on but the parts list looks like
Rvinyl redouts-okay, seriously, if you dont know what this mod is, search and do yourself a favor and buy you some. For such a cheap and easy mod, I dont know of anything that will make you look better for the money. A little mad it took me a few years to stumble upon them
Hyundai Genesis R-Spec wheels- I was going back and forth between Vossen and Weds and ended up coming across a thread where I saw these wheels on our car. I thought it looked slick and OEM, and ended up buying a set
2011/12 Headlights-I figured since they were on sale, I should just go ahead and get them. Opted for the HID loaded set so I can keep it clean and simple. Thanks Sewell
2011 Fsport front end-This front end bumper has really started to grow on me, so I saidlet's do it, I am interested to see what it will look like in Crystal White paint
GFX rear lip/s2k tips-I have decided to complete the lip kit (after seeing the show us your rear end thread) there was something about the s2k tips that really fills in the look for me.
Flyaudio navigation unit-only buying just incase I decide to sell going forward I wont here this deal breaker question
annnnnnnnd a new set of carpet mats
I hopefully will have pictures coming this next week and hopefully the final outcome is clublexus worthy
And of course, this thread is worthless without SOME sort of pictures....
