Hey everyone, decided to make a build thread for my new is350, I previously owned a 2007 is250 and some of you may have seen pics floating around the forum in the vossen thread and what not, I never had a full build thread because most of the work i had done to it before i was active on here and I just wasent in the mood to back track threw old pics.
Heres a pic of my old ride at v2 lab
I striped her down back to stock in 18 hours with the help of a buddy, it was still a painful 18 hours.. I had all my stock parts except rims and tires. But the dealership Let me swap my vossens for the stocks on the new car. This is what it looked like when I took it in for trade.

Many more mods to come stay tuned!
They only had 2 is350s on the lot and the other was white not a big fan of white cars plus the interior was that cream color.
This is the first day I took it home.
Wasted no time, within the hour I put on my intake and exhaust, sounds good when you get on it, but daily driving its just not as loud as it was on my 250 so im probably going with the invidia mid pipe for some more sound.
Congrats on the new IS! Loved the silver one, and this one is coming along very nicely very quickly! I might be biased, but I think the CV4's look even better on the new car, the finish flows so well with the Obsidian! Keep up the great work!
Got some small stuff in yesterday, Power wire for a mod coming up very soon new h11 8ks for the fogs since the 9005 out of my ld is250 obviously wont work, and caliper decals, already got my g2 kit in and ill be doing them wednesday as well as my lip.
Coming along nice & fast bro.....cant wait to see it in person
are you planning to add any spacers to push the wheels out a bit ?
I cant really push them out any farther until I replace the rear tire with a 255 or 265, and get stiffer spring rates. And dont hold me to it but im probably switching to air by next year or end of this year.
