Default Stainless9' mini "build" thread.

Whats up CL. Picked up my 07 is250 AWD with the "Premium/Luxury package" a few months ago. Been lurking the forum for a while so figured id start up my small thread. Previous car was a scion tc (yeah yeah girls car blah blah) lol, but it was the first car that actually got me into the modding game.

As far as my 250, I recently dropped it on Megan EZ coilovers a couple days ago. Being an AWD, i have the headache of not being able to slam it. (Should have gotten a RWD but MA. snow sucks). Reading through the forum, I hear 25 inches fender to ground is a safe drop. I still notice some slight vibration when at a stop at this height. Any other AWD owners notice this or was the vibration completely eliminated at the 25 inches height?

Other than the coilovers, Ive done 20% tint all around but in the process of taking them off, I want to go for the non-tint look now.
Ive also done Nokyo High yellow bulbs in my high beams and also my fog lights.
Also painted my small 250 calipers,previous owner went for the rusted caliper look
My plans are to just keep this simple mainly with a drop and wheels, never works out that way


Still havent been able to take any good pics but ill upload a quick crappy pic that I took right after installing the coilovers. Also, if anyone is interested, Ive included the link to my feature that was done on my previous car. Let me know what you guys think.

Ok so I bought one of these underglow kits for my car. Tell me what you guys think?




LMAO haha just kidding thats disgusting.

But serious question, has anyone bought TPMS from ebay? I need to pick up an extra set, not sure if the aftermarket ones are worth picking up. I found these for a decent price. They say OEM but I know thats not the OEM part number, especially at that price.
