Default adule's 09 is250 awd build

Hi, CL...a few weeks ago my gf and I picked up a 2009 IS250 AWD with 44k miles on it for $24k. Not the best pricing, but it was a fair one. It was exactly what we were looking for minus the navi. Starfire pearl, awd, black interior, relatively low mileage, and a stock platform. It already had tinted windows so that was a good start. I put in a order for a set of JDM oem visors ($400 ) a few days ago and now I'm in the process of searching for a set of Work VS-XX wheels.

My gf isn't really into the whole car/jdm scene, but she wants me to make it look "nice" for her haha. I always wanted to do a build thread and I guess this can also be my intro post. My first car was a Mugen themed DC2 (integra GSR) with a jdm front end conversion. Gave that to my brother. Now my dd is a '05 CL9 (TSX) with basic bolt ons and minor mods here and there. Next to her is my garage queen AP2 (S2000) that has a J's Racing theme to it who shares summer duties w/my '99 CBR600 F4 lol. I haven't spent $$$ on mods for a good while and now it's itching at me again w/the new is250

here are some pics for now:

Thanks for all the comments guys. I use the TSX for my daily driver and I think I'm done modding that car. As for the s2k, just installed a Shine Auto rear diffuser and waiting for my Vortech V3
I don' t think I'm going to do anything "crazy" to the Lexus, it's my gf's dd and still has 5years/100k miles warranty =\ Just mods that I can easily take off for now.

Lexus Japan OEM window visor
$399.99
www.nigel-jdmparts.com
Still trying to wrap my head around the $400 pricetag
Holding the visors, you can just tell it's a quality part. Comes w/install instructions and is held on w/double sided tape and (2) "claw hook" on each piece that sticks to the window trim. Very straightforward and easy installation. The top part of the visor comes w/a stainless steel strip built in on the top so it matches your OEM window trim. Most visors don't come like that. My only gripe would be that it didn't come w/a packet of alcohol solution to prep the area that's going to be taped...no biggie though.

Installed...slim and subtle . Looks really good w/tinted windows, pics don't really show it.

Since I had the hair dryer in the garage, I figured I would wrap the foglights w/some yellow Oracal film I have laying around.

Closer examination shows how much abuse these things take sitting so low to the ground, hopefully the film will rectify that.

Really easy to install...just heat, trim, and tuck.
