Default iMcAlister's 2008 IS250 Build

Hey folks!

Got my car 9 days ago, and let the mods begin! Albeit, mods will be few and far between...

Supposed to rain tomorrow, so I'll get some much better pics of her all cleaned up on Sunday!

List of Mods

1.) 12.1 Navigation Map update (had 7.1, my house and all roads leading to our subdivision were not even there!)
2.) Carbon Fiber Rear Window Spoiler - Looks MUCH better than I was expecting with my Smoky Granite MICA!
3.) Plasti-Dip Front/Rear Emblems and Chrome Grill Cover

Congrats on the new car, looking forward to more pictures of the ride and roof spoiler.

Looks clean, I have a 07' same color. How many miles you got? I ran sea foam at 110k miles, wouldn't believe how much it cleaned it out

Thanks ISlove......it just turned over 43k. Still loving it so far. We haven't had rain in forever here in North Texas, but as soon as I want to spend sometime on the weekend to clean, its rained every (or chance of rain) both weekends since...ugh!

Plasti-dip Rear/Front Emblems and the Chrome grill surround. Turned out pretty good....few minor scuffs that I'll have to redo at some point but oh well...not bad for a first try!

Also changed out the oil this weekend with Royal Purple 5w30!
