Thanks! The pedals came with the car. Are they normally different? I've been thinking about keeping the IS350 emblem and removing the LEXUS one or removing both, unsure for now but it's not a big issue. Or I may just redo them in gloss black after I get all the major stuff over with haha.

Looks good man!

Question: what shocks are you running with the Swift lowering springs?

How's the ride with the swift springs? I've been wanting to order them but have been putting it off.....mainly because of no time on my end..lol. But any feedback on the ride would be appreciated.

The ride compared to the stock sport suspension is a bit more comfortable on minor bumps and long dips. It's not as harsh on the rebound. Under cornering load, it feels more planted and responds quickly. The height difference from OEM sport springs to Swift springs is barely noticeable (about 1 finger all around). I did feel a noticable difference in the handling and ride comfort.

another teaser...
