Default Kalel's build thread

Hello Club Lexus.

I recently picked up a 2008 IS250 in SGM. She is in great shape with only 59k. I wanted a clean comfortable daily and this fit the bill. Originally was going to go with a E90 or C300 but really felt more comfortable on the reliability and service of the Lexus (Toyota). My inspection 2 just cost me roughly $1700 on my M3 and I really don't want to get crushed with another German car with high dollar maintenance.

Not too sure exactly what i want to do with this yet. I opted for the 250 instead of the 350 because I am not looking too much at performance with this build. It has to be driveable and comfortable for my two sons.

I am thinking a subtle drop, lip kit, and maybe wheels. I'd love to do the 2012 headlight conversion eventually. I don't want to spend too much just because I still have other projects that need finishing.

She is pretty much stock. I added the 3k fogs.









Here are a few pictures of the ///M and my past builds:

I am totally open to suggestions and lessons learned. Please dont be shy.

I've really taken a liking to how Bob4256's IS turned out, something along those lines. Can't wait to learn from you guys.

Nice pick up, if they turn out like any of your other past builds you'll be just fine happy modding!
