Default baf2468's Build

It will be a slow process modding the car, since I'm saving for a house, but I figured I should start one of these anyways. Here are a few pics of when I first got it (covered in pollen ).

Installed Sport Pedals so I can accelerate, brake and rest my left foot in style. haha

Next will be an LED lighting kit, then the F-Sport cold air intake

Default Sewell LED Lighting Kit Install and Replace Left Rear Mud Flap

Was not digging the orange incandescent glow of the dome lights, so I decided to go with the Sewell LED Lighting Kit:

Pretty easy to install and cheap also! Enjoy the pics!

Default Sewell LED Lighting Kit Install and Replace Left Rear Mud Flap contd.

More pics

REALLY simple install and only tools needed were as follows:

LED Install: Phillips screwdriver and a small flathead

Mud Flap: Stubby Phillips screwdriver or 10mm Hex head w/ small Socket Wrench. Don't forget the clips (also available via the previous link).

Total Install Time: 15minutes.

Can't tell from the pics but did you get the clear door courtesy lights as well?

Is350 is a great start. Saving up for a house is a smart thing to do. Good luck on the house and modding the IS.

Haven't ordered the clear light covers yet. I'll probably get those with the intake purchase. Thanks!

Clear courtesy lights make a world of a difference at night IMHO.

What intake are you looking to pick up? F-Sport?

Yep! I'll be buying it this next month or the month after. I was going to order from Sewell. Know anyone who's selling?
