Talking Kchow510's Tungsten Pearl IS250 very slow build

Hello everyone! It's about to be 2years of owning my 2IS, so I decided to start a build thread.

07 IS250 RWD W/ Premium Package. I will continue to update slowly.

Enjoy.

Got the car back in 2012.
F-Sport Shift Knob and de-badged
F-Sport style front grille
Tinted Tails and swapped wood trim for Black Opal Mica Trim
Won F-Sport Intake at Lexus Evolution 2012 (Got ticket for tinted tails right after LOL)
Installed BC Coilovers
Swapped Tinted Tails back to oem and added red outs
Installed 6k HID and yellow fogs
Test Fitted friend's Work VS-Mesh 18x9.5 18x.10.5 +15
Test Fitted friend's Work Equips 18x10 +10 All around
CF Flat bottom steering wheel with blue stitching
Blue/White LED dash conversion done by 2slow (Tim)
Picked up some TE37s in Candy Red 19x9.5 19x10.5 +22

Man im loving your car! I would really want to do that interior blue led swap like you did, was it very hard to do? And also how hard is it to change out the grilles?

Thanks! I had CL member 2slow do them! It took at about 5hrs to do. It's pretty easy to swap out. Someone made a DIY thread on it.
