Default My Is250 Build (lost of pics )

Hello CL,
I bought a 2007 awd is250 6 months ago and couldn't be happier. Finally, I can say that my car has come a long way since I bought it considering Its a LOW budget build . I just made this thread to share some pics of my mods nothing too crazy but here it goes I know I know needs to be lower , but I'm very limited because it's an AWD

The night I picked it up

Today I finally installed my Vertex replica front lip and Gfx rear lip . Install took me around 6 hours From start to finish. The key is to prep everything and test fit 10 times because the actual install just takes 10 mins. thankfully my friend helped me out

Update on page 2 : installed aluminum pedals and ebay intake.


After using the heat gun and worked the edges, I was able to have a nice flush fitment .

Thanks, I bought the front lip from eBay and the rear lip I bought it from a member here (vrooming350). Road Magnets ride just like stock maybe a little better because they are a bit softer , I really enjoy them .The drop is 2" all around.

I didn't know what I was doing lol. I failed to do a research before buying . I own an Evo and inside the Evo world AWD is an advantage so, I had that state of mind when buying my Is250.
