I should have never posted pictures of my cars and just let them always be in the background of your car's pictures. Hahaha the IS300 and IS350 is almost always somewhere in your pictures.

The carbon fiber hood is overkill I think but everything else looks great! Cant wait to see what else you have in store

holy good mother of God, your 2is has come such a long way. i still remember meeting you and karasha the first time the weekend of The Pursuit!

this is one of the very few examples of doing things the RIGHT way: no half-assing, no cutting corners, no mickey-mousing.

Holy ****, I didn't realize it from how you car is now. I remember how it looked when you came to SD to pick up the wald trunk off my friend! I was the one who helped installed it with the Black 2is Looking good sir!

Thanks, the hood will definitely be hit or miss with everyone. It's meant to be outlandish and bold though, pretty sure it accomplishes that though.

Jasonnnn. Thanks so much man, we really are trying to keep the 2IS game from being stagnant. It's a ways off, but look for me and Katie to be hauling our cars out to Cali for Wekfest or a big meet 2014.

If anyone asks me how an aggressive IS250 looks... THIS would be the perfect picture
Your car is amazing man. Lot's of hard earn cash and sweat put into this and I'm digging it!
Definitely one of a kind
Keep up the great work man.
