Nice looking IS F Sport.... I have the same color as your and I like the top Vinyl on the roof top. Might have to scroll down to SWR Motorsports myself and see if i get this done on my ride. Question/ Request. Can we see more pictures of the Red LED's in action and also the Amber LED"s as well. Thanks.

Niice, are the bulbs difficult to change....I know in the 2IS to change the turn signal you have to remove the bumper.

What size bulbs does it take?

Manual says - turn signals = 7444, and reverse lights = 921.

the front was way easy. no more bumper removal! you do have to remove the windshield liquid hose but that just clips on so its super easy. The rear, you have to remove the housing. The 2IS had a small cardboard door that you could access the bulb but not on the 3IS. The removal of the housing is in your manual. But I'll post a DIY of it soon...

I think he means the water channels which in the 3IS, there's no plastic moldings added there since there's a new welding process with the 3IS at that joint on each side of the roof...

loving the roof !!!!!! such a clean setup

Would you be able to do me a favor and measure the diameter of inner exhaust tip (not the chrome tip but where its connected to) ? Planning to change the exhaust tip finisher to a more oval one.
