Talking RGV IS350 F-Sport Build Thread - Clean & Simple

Figured I might as well start a build thread since I got a big weekend ahead of me with spring install, intake, LEMS parts, etc. Will update this thread with pictures as I take them. Here's one picture of my 2014 Lexus IS350 FSport, bone stock!



Parts going on the car in the next week or 2 are...

RS-R Down Springs
20mm Ichiba Spacers
Injen Intake
LEMS Carbon Front Lip (or whatever you want to call them)
F-Sport Axle-Back (I know, not a big power adder, but looks and sounds great!)

That's it for now. More soon!

Nice car!

How about you put on that F-sport axleback before your intake and take some exterior and interior vids! I'm really interested but haven't yet heard one with stock intake.

LEMS front lip(s), 20mm spacers and RS*R Down Springs installed...

Quick teaser until I get it washed. Still waiting to install intake and exhaust!

EDIT: I had my wife drive my car so I could check out how it looks with the drop + spacers... OMG. If anyone is contemplating on what your first mods should be, RS*R down springs + 20mm spacers all around ASAP.

I have to agree. RS*R Down and 20 mm spacers makes the 3IS looks awesome. Nice ride

Be careful with putting spacers on your car. Many different brands have been known to suffer cracking, etc.

Also spacers cause undo stress on wheel bearings....

I agree the RSR Down Springs and spacers makes the car look more aggressive, even with OEM F-Sport wheels =)

Looking good...do you still have enough clearance given the slight decrease in ride height and the accentuated lip?
