Default My is350 build...suggestions

Hey guys so I bought a 2006 IS350 about 3 months ago and I have been adding to what I think tasteful mods. Just wanted to see what everyone thought about my progress in this short amount of time and if you have any suggestions or pointers to make the car look better, enjoy...

New drop from today lowered it 3/4" in the rear and 1/4" in the front, had to wait for the fender roll that's why it took me so long. Im thinking about putting a 3mm spacer in the front to make is +22 and lower it a little more like 1/4" more to get more of a rake look. What are your thoughts? Also I apologize for some of the photos being sideways I keep trying to edit them to rotate but it wont post that way.

And finally my IS on the dip of my driveway to observe my clearance and get a good picture
So let me know what your overall thought is on my 3 month build and suggestions on any future modifications

And I know that many people aren't big fans of XXR wheels but its all I could afford after buying a house. I am also a CNC Machinist for an aircraft company and in XXR's defense their tolerances are within an above average allowance, it also only took about a 1/2 of an ounce each wheel to balance all four. This proves that there was consistency in tolerance and machining, plus no one was rocking 526's on their 2nd gen IS so I wanted something different
