Default PDX 2007 IS250 AWD Build

So I got my car in August 2012. Got a pretty decent deal on it and it had about 52k on it. Here's what she looked like the day I first drove it.

First mods were basically dropping it on some road magnet springs, getting an Injen intake, and throwing some spacers on to get it looking a little more flush.

Shortly after doing those mods I put an exhaust on, deleted the resonator, got a rear window wing (that flew off cause I used ****ty two sided tape to get it stuck on there ), got some BC coils with 14k/12k spring rates, and started doing some accent plastidipping and getting a front lip.

Got quite a bit coming in the near future so that's why I figured now was a good time to get a build thread going. Upcoming mods:
Linea Corse Le Mans 19" wheels
audio setup (not definite on what yet)
avs window visors
Vinyl roof (rather than current plastidip)
IS350 Front Brake Upgrade
VIP Front Table
Garson Curtains
Garson random other accessories
Paint Match Lip
Customize engine bay covers

Probably a few other small things here and there. Going to be ready for the 2014 show and cruise in circuit in the Portland/SeaTac area for sure. Can't wait for some hot weather and car shows and no more of this damn rain here!!!!!

I like everything except the black mirrors, they make the car look super cheap.

Yea the mirrors are actually coming off this season and going back to regular. Just waiting till crappy winter is over cause at least for now it protects my paint.

Thanks bro. Agreed. Plastidip done properly looks pretty good. However when laid down improperly it looks like crap. I'll be getting rid of some in favor of vinyl soon. Wheels come in tomorrow and then random other goodies for the next few weeks. I'll keep post updated.....

Couple new pictures. Wheels came in Thursday. Got them on that night and had rear fenders rolled this morning. Front lip is getting paint matched tomorrow morning and possibly a few other goodies we'll see - maybe little bump in the trunk.

I got one ticket last year on St. Patricks day for no plate. I was leaving a meet and they were just looking to pull people over. No issues since. If I get another ticket I'll probably just tow hook mount it.

Black part is getting removed once weather is a little nicer; I just did it for fun to see how it would look when I was bored I don't really like it either . Lip was paint matched yesterday by me and my buddy. All legit supplies and it came out great. I'll post pics when I'm off work tonight. Build a mini booth in his garage ventilation and all. Grille coming in today but I don't think I'll install till all the gravel from the snowstorm is off the roads.

Audio install starting on March 15th. Going to be a sweet setup!!! Also ordering SAGE RCA kit for front to kill that front gap and raise the rear a little to level out and get some 5mm spacers going.
