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


One month later Window tints, Road Magnet springs , Oem spoiler , M2 cheap Exhaust (oem was rusted)


Opened the Headlights and painted them & F sport replica grill


Front bumper repainted & new smoked fog lights to match the headlights



Flyaudio replica or china unit with backup camera before I bought the 2009 center vents




Mounted new Wheels & tires (19") , Painted calipers and added Lexus decals, Brand new brake pads and rotors .


redouts installed


Getting the car aligned at The Alignment Factory ( Ken is the man )




Installed D4s Hid replacement bulbs (6000K) & Hid's for the fogs along with LED DRL'S


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







Finally installed (pretty good fitment for a cheap replica )




prepping the rear lip ( Trust me I added more 3M tape than what it shows )

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 .




All done , Hopefully I can get some daytime pictures with a better camera after I clean the car.



Tomorrow I will install the aluminum lexus logo pedals, New intake system, Oil change , new oem spark plugs, I will post pics tomorrow.

Hopefully coming soon
2012 headlights
Coils ( I'm still debating because i cant lower it too much anyways)
Full led interior lights
Carbon fiber dash trim kit
Illuminated door sills
Led side mirror covers .

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.
