Default B16da9's IS350 build

I never really did one of these for my old 6MT IS250. However back in Feb. of this year she met her untimely death do to road debris instantly blowing out my right rear tire causing me to spin out on the highway hitting the guardrail twice. Needless to say the car ended up being totaled and a month later I purchased the 2011 IS350 bellow with less than 5k miles on the odometer.

First some pictures of my old IS250 6MT




When she met hear untimely death




The new replacement 2011 IS350









The very next day I installed the intake off my old IS250



Got her tinted and installed some AVS visors.

Purchased a practically new Tanabe exhaust from a fellow CL e member.







installed



Jumped on the last deal from Sewell for the sports pedals.



This is when the car started to look like my old one. The body shop called me and my GFX side skirts and rear lip and authentic Wald Spoiler were all painted and ready to be picked up for installation.



Wald Spoiler, and GFX sides and rear installed.





Hard wired my radar detector to get rid of the ugly coil power cord.



Installed an FJ cruiser fog lights switch with a relay to be able to turn my fog lights on or off once the ignition is on.

Couple of pictures of my Integra with the daily driver IS350. I've owned the Integra for 14 years.













That's all I have for now I should have my old wheels on her soon as the wheel shop told me on friday that the parts to repair the two damaged wheels have finally arrived and would be getting assembled this today.

In case any one wonders about my retrofits this was my last one. I upgraded my wife's Rodeo with TSX projectors one of my many retrofit.

Thanks guys, I hope to have my wheels this weekend. However before i put them on I need to do the fender tab and paint the calipers. I was also thinking of having all four corners rolled so I dont butcher my fenders like I did on the 250.

Well I got my wheels back and I have to thank the Strassforged guys for getting these looking new once again. This weekend I'll be doing the bumper tab and heating up my fender liners.


Wheels have new lips and barrels

I love what you're doing to your new IS. There aren't a lot of body kits for the 2011+ models yet so I'm watching your build closely before I start on mine

Keep up the amazing work

I thought about doing the centers gold so the integra and IS would match as I would like to take both of them to meets together.
