Hi clublexus! I picked up a 2008 Starfire Pearl IS250 with black interior on April 3, 2014. This is my first build ever so I wasn't sure how to approach any of the mods. And I'm from San Jose up in northern California.
Special thanks to Mariano (Sffd103), Ashton (chase), Anthony (lizerd), Peter (yammy) & his homies, Mike (o7iS250), Zach (zackteee), Will (willsfp), Van (vpcutes), Timmy Tang and those who are not from the CL community for helping me get this far.
April 3, 2014
First mod was 6000k low beams and 6000k fogs
Next came the 35% Tint
Got a greddy exhaust but it's a little on the quiet side for my taste. Difference of some metal polish
How she sits like today. Waiting for my coilovers (ordered from SonicsMS) to come. With rates 14k/12k. Also I scraped my Wald trunk spoiler on accident.. LOL. Picking it up again this Friday.
NOTE: **WATCH IN 1080P**
Before exhaust was broken into
Off to a good start. Glad I could help you. What exhaust modifications do you have planned?
Yeah thanks a lot! Invidia midpipe or some sorta delete involving muffler/secondary cat/resonator. But leaning towards the midpipe because it keeps the low deep growl and will be easier to replace when turning it back to stock. Funny because I catch people staring at my exhaust, who probably expect it to be super loud but nothing comes out hahah
Hmm really? I don't even see any vendors selling Megan midpipes and I heard the invidia one is louder because the 2ndary cats are off. At this point I don't know if I wanna sacrifice a little bit of deep tone for a louder exhaust since greddy is already so quiet. Buy wow Megan midpipes are sure a lot cheaper than invidia'
Took forever to take off the OEM spoiler but after some time, I managed to install the wald spoiler. But since I didn't shave the corners, the edges are really throwing me off right now. Anyone else have this problem?
