Default FINALLY introducing Br3akenout's 2006 IS250

Better late than never...

Picked her up July 2006 and have tried my best to take care of her. The past year I've been applying to medical schools and figured while I was at it I would try and finally finish her. Since I've been working and had a small amount of income to play around with I decided to try and finish her before I leave.

Taken one month after bringing her home

The modding started early but the big stuff only happened recently. I don't have much time to search for old photos of her but I'll summarize it:

Late 2006 - 6000k HID low beams
Early 2007 - TOMS Sides and Rear, OEM Trunk Spoiler, Lexon Front Lip (RIP)
- front lip was destroyed during one of the snow storms in the following years. Broke in half due to ice)
Late 2007 - Yellow Fog Bulbs and 4300k HID lows
Mid 2008 - Ebay Roof Spoiler (Ordered a Lexon one but I thought my parents had "accidentally" thrown it away while clearing the basement)
Late 2009 - HID Yellow Fogs and Ebay IS-F Tail Lights
Late 2010 - F-Sport Intake and F-sport Shift Knob (auto)
Late 2012 - Rear Sway Bar, Illuminated Door Sills, Weight in Steering Wheel, LED everything

Which brings us to the final round where I went nuts:

From Dec 2012 to March 2013 added:
F-Sport Exhaust, F-Sport Front Bumper, 2012 HID Headlights (Complete), 19" Prodrive GC-014i staggered w/ Michelin Pilot Super Sport Tires, Project Kics Neochrome R40 REVO, BC Racing Coilovers w/ Swift Springs, and I found the Lexon Roof Spoiler I thought got thrown away so that got installed.

So without much adieu. Here she is. This is my baby Alessandra. Currently 94500 miles.

And finally how she currently is. Rolling stock because I DID get into med school and I am not crazy enough to leave summer wheels on while this car does year-round duty here in NJ. Daily driven. Forever loved.

They are Project Kics Neochrome R40 REVO. I forget which site I bought them off of but it wasn't a Club Lexus Vendor (or at least I couldn't locate them here). You can find them through one of the vendors that carry lug nuts I just got it for a slightly better price.

Thanks everyone! I'm glad I got to finish her before I begin this next milestone in my life.

Grata looking car. Love the Toms rear. Where did you get the Lexon roof spoiler from?

Congrats on med school.

Looks real good. If you went lower it would look even sweeter.

Bought the Lexon Roof Spoiler here on Club Lexus the one time they had a big Group Buy years ago when the parts first came out. The offer was too good to pass up. Unfortunately, they painted it wrong...TWICE and at the time I didn't have the money to go and get it repainted on my own. Put it in storage and during one spring cleaning I found it was missing. Fast forward to last January as I'm doing my own cleaning getting ready to leave I end up finding it haha.

You can still order it from L-Tuned Parts (Carson Lexus?). I just remember it took a crazy long time to get it. Not gonna lie though it's a MILLION times nicer than the Ebay one most try to substitute it with (no offense to those that have it. I did too but I removed it quick once I found the original).

I would LOVE to lower it more. Problem is this car is a daily driver and gets driven in NYC almost every other day. Potholes, horrible roads in general, and crazy drivers keep me from going too low since they'd probably tear my fenders off. I also JUST got my f-sport bumper on and I can't bear having it scrape 24/7 haha. I'm actually scraping a bit still as it is over the bigger dips and bumps.
