Default RVCAis250's Build Thread !!!

Hey guys, I decided to make a build thread just cause I felt like it. I don't have any amazing quality high resolution photography shots but hey, its whatever I guess. So here's my journey.
I purchased the car in January 2012 after totaling a 2006 Lexus GS300
Don't have any pictures of it completely stock but I'll start from what I can find..

A month after I get the car, an asian lady pulls out in front of me as I'm coming through the intersection and swings out into my lane and BOOM, first accident with my 2IS after less than a month. WTF

After that, for some reason, I decided to slowly mod it. Its a bummer that I wasn't into modding before cause I could've done an ISF bumper conversion or even new 2012 LED headlights

Thanks bro! It's definitely one of my favorite mods on the car. But if I decide to sell it one day, I'll let you know

It was actually an interesting experience getting this diffuser. But long story short.. I met someone who was in contact with wald and I purchased it through him. So I didn't directly purchase from wald, but overall the wait time was like 4 weeks.

Thank you! I get a lot of compliments about it around town and driving around.

Trust me, now that I look back it, I agree. My first few mods were just plain tacky. I'm just trying to go with the clean look now.

Thanks! I like it too, I just wish I had more power haha. I'm jealous of all you ISF guys that have the 400+ hp. All the meets I go to and people that just see my car all think its an ISF cause they don't recognize the small details that give it away. And every time I'm just like damn, I wish I did.
