Instead of scattered threads, I'd thought I'll put them all in one build thread.

Here's how she started off.

2/15/2014 - F-Sport Intake

First mod, I actually bought just the filter and lower box only. Ended up adding the pipe and hardware kit later on. Should have just purchased it all at once, would have saved some cash.

2/21/2014 - OEM rear lip spoiler, purchased from Sewell Lexus.

Added the OEM rear lip spoiler. Ordered from Sewell Lexus, already factory pre-painted.. Removed the bolts and used 3M double side to install it. Fit is perfect and color is spot on.

2/25/2014 - Bridgestone Potenza RE760 Sport Tires


The stock all season Turanza's weren't cutting it at all so I decided to get a set of summer only tires. Living in sunny Socal you know...

These tires greatly improved traction and ride quality over the stockies, noise levels went down also.

3/3/14 - Tanabe Touring Medallion Exhaust

This exhaust seemed popular on the forums so I decided to make the purchase. Boy am I glad I did, it sounds GREAT and not loud at all. Keeps the Lexus character but adds a little personality to the tone.
Okay, I admit the way the tips looked had a big hand in my decision. Love the tips on the Tanabe, doesn't look too aftermarket which I was going for.

3/12/2014 - New Pre-Painted Bumper from Sewell Lexus.

Decided to purchase a whole new replacement bumper from Sewell Lexus. Didn't want to fill and repaint my original bumper to get rid of the license plate holes so I just got a whole new one. Yes I'm crazy..

4/18/14 - F-Sport accessory shocks and springs

After much debate between full coilovers and shocks/springs, I went with the full F-Sport Shocks/Springs for a set it and forget it setup. So far I'm loving the ride quality and handling feel.

4/25/2014 - 19" Staggered F-Sport Wheels 19x8 Front and 19x9 Rear

The 19" F-Sport wheels I ordered finally arrived and I had them installed to see if I like them or the Velgen's better. Still undecided which one to keep, might keep them both! I can already hear the wife sharpening her butcher's knife.
