Smile My IS build!

I would just like to show off my current 2006 is250! A little about myself: i'm just a high school student about to go into college and I worked insanely hard to pay for half of my car and have had generous enough parents to pay for the other half after having my licence for a year. I bought my car with 102k miles and am currently at 112k after having it for a year and a half! I really want my car to last me all though college so I try very hard to keep it in the best shape possible! Washing it twice a week and waxing it once a month, 93 octane, synthetic oil every 5k miles constiantly cleaning it (black is impossible to keep perfect ) I love doing "mods" to making it look nice and to turn peoples heads!
Everything ive done to it since i got it. (Its hard to save money for college and buy "mods" haha)

Window tint
Windshield tint
6000k HID low beam headlights
6000k LED fog lights
6000k LED DRL's
6000k LED reverse lights
6000k Interior LEDs
Painted red calipers+ black lexus logo sticker (+50 HP)
Low dust brake pads
Rear fenders rolled
Injen intake
M2 performance axle back exhaust
Resonator delete
Blacked out tail lights
Blacked out window trim
Blacked out front grille
H&R springs
20mm wheel spacers (front)
25mm wheel spacers (back)
Powder coated rims gloss black
Fake shark fin antenna
12' inch Alpine sub
600w sound stream amp
Dynamat Sound Insulation (in rear seats and trunk)
7 color 4 piece LED strips
6 tone siren PA
F-sport carbon fiber shift ***
F-sport carpets
Hard wired cop radar
New OEM headlights

Let me know what you guys think of it so far! I know not to many people like the black on black combo but trust me it looks good in person. If you have any suggestions on what I should do to it next just let me know I love hearing feedback! I was thinking F sport grille?

The first day I bought it.

Current:






















The 6000k reverse lights

Spacers are perfect!
Any rubbing?
Fsport grill is cool but save your money but I'm a fan of our headlamps with day time running lights.
Other than that your rocking

Black out the headlight housings!! It looks dope. I too am a high schooler without much money for mods, painting is the cheapest and easiest thing to do, and black housings would look sweet on that combo.

Haha I don't think you can really tell from those pictures but they are!
(Kinda an old picture before I had spacers but it was the only one I could find that actually showed the headlights that well)

Nice work! Did you just paint the OEM wheels black? I'm interested in more details on that as I may consider that as an option.

Haha I painted the stock wheels quite a bit. If you want a cheap non-perminate choice then plasti dip is the way to go. If you want a perminate cheap method then spray paint them. But if you want an amazing perfected perminate painted wheel then get them powder coated. I did all 3 over the course of having my car and man it was so worth the $300 of getting them powder coated.

.They look good now but trust me they wont stay this nice for long. If you dont have "low dust" brake padds they will get insanely dirty and they are very hard to clean espically since they are BLACK. Also depending on where you live and how many coats you put on they will eventually start to fade and peel and crack.

Freshly plasti dipped.



PLasti dipped: After 3 months of not having "low dust brake pads" and not cleaned.



Here they are spray painted and this is more of a permainate solution, where as they will not peel and crack. How ever me living in FL where it is very very hot and humid they started to fade after 4 months.This was taken after 4 months.




Now here they are powder coated. I didnt have the center cap put in at the time because I was waiting for the center cap to dry, I had to spray it myself because its plasic and can not be powder coated. My stock rims were in pretty bad shape because the previous owner had curbed it a few times, but luckly for powder coating when they sand blast the rim to get rid of the imperfections and made them look brand new! Powder coating even makes the inside of the rim perfect which is amazing. Also, these are amazingly easy to clean you just take a micro fiber to them and the dirty and grime litterly just comes right off its awesome!
