Default FreshIS250's Build History

Ok guys so I finally decided to make a thread about the progress of my Lexus... I bought the car 5/16/2011 and held out for about a couple months of not doing too many modifications to the car...

List of Current and Old parts

*LEDs in the full interior
*LED interior door cup
*Clear Door Lenses
*F-Sport intake
*F-Sport rear sway bar
*5% Window tint all around 50% on front windshield
*M2 Exhaust
*Road Magnet Springs (no longer installed)
*BC-R Coilovers
*ISF Steering Damper
*Carbon Fiber vinyl wrap for inside interior
*JL 10W6V2 and JL 500/1 amp (no longer installed)
*20x8.5 and 20x10 wheels wrapped in 235/30/20 and 275/30/20
*Invidia Midpipe w/o resonators (no longer installed swapped back to stock midpipe)
*F-Sport shift Knob
*Aftermarket NAVI Unit (sold)
*6k low beam HIDs and 6k foglight HIDs
*Vertex Rep Front Lip
*GFX Front Lip (uninstalled)






I started out small with the basic led everything lol and then HIDs in the fogs and changing out the color of the low beams.. as well as VLEDs for the DRLs. Allso purchased steering damper... F Sport shift **** and rear sway bar.. and I also did a JL setup as well







In August of 2011 I purchased the road magnet springs and installed those on the car and also a set of wheels to give me an idea of which route I wanted to head with this car...



TLC Luxury meet at stone mountain park







After those couple of items I decided to plan out my coilover and exhaust route.... along with my minor visual details








Eventually I decided to check out and go with BC-R coilovers and a M2 Exhaust...

Pretty clean start! Although the pictures aren't showing up on CL.

I loved the look with the matching fogs btw.

Thanks Bro. M2 exhaust is nice and keeps the car on a luxury level. I like the sound paired with stock midpipe

I had to do the bumper tab mod but mine was running that bracket. So I cut and pushed it back. Then the top part of the fender lining in the wheel well was rubbing so I cut that. As far as the rear yes it's cambered in and tucking.

Preciate it man. Yeah they grew on me as well. I'm thinking about a new setup but still debating the route I'm going to go.
