Here's my 2010 IS250 RWD.

I'll update this as I get the parts in. I'm debating on getting another bike or building this car a bit more, I'll decide come spring time

All comments are welcome!

I haven't installed them yet, I will towards the end of the winter.

I picked up a set of 2009 IS250 AWD wheels this week, I'll have these on in the spring as well as the F-Sport springs.

Keep it up, you're going in the right direction.. On the F-Sport springs, many have said it feels stock, just a tad stiffer. The drop is minimal, but it keeps good ride quality. I just recently installed, H&R sport springs and it feels pretty much stock to me for the ride quality, so with the F-sport springs it shouldn't be much different.

Thanks!

I went with F-Sport because I saw photos of the "drop" and to me it's perfect and more importantly my dealer won't void the warranty. (They're installing it as well)

Man, your doing everything thing the right way! I cant wait to see what it looks like with those LF-A wheels on there. I wish I had the money to do what your doing but I guess that's what makes me strive for it! haha BTW don't get a bike your much safer in a car with more than 6 airbags in it =)

Thanks! The wheels are going on next month, along with everything else, since we're getting a snow storm tomorrow (15-20 CM)

I know a car is safer, but riding in general is so much fun!

Thanks! But aside from installing the parts that I've shown here, I have nothing else planned in terms of mods... I've modified cars in the past, so I learnt my lesson as to where I should draw the line

Thanks! I can't wait to get everything installed and see the final result!

I got the wheels installed today, now I know why people are saying the IS250 is slow... when you're on 16" wheels the car isn't slow, but with the 18s, I'm under the impression that a civic might be faster...

The car isn't dropped yet, so I'll update this as I go along.
