Default Sternb818 - IS250 F-Sport Build Thread

Hey guys! I have had the car for 9 months so far and it has been very slow. Things didn't kick off till about 2 months ago and I forgot to start a build thread. Here is my car and what I have done so far. More things will come soon but with a wait which is no big deal. Hope you guys like what you see!

2014 Lexus IS250 F-Sport RWD
Ultra White/Black
Navigation Package and F-Sport Package


September 1st, 2013
Picked the car up from Lexus of North Miami Beach. I ordered it back in August but they didn't have any Ultra White cars at the time. This was the only one coming in to the state when I went to buy it.

Got my windows and tail lights tinted. Don't have pics of windows but you can see it in the other pictures. I did 15% all around and the strip on the front as well as the tail lights minus the reverse/turn signal.

Got some pictures from the first car meet I went to. It was Cars and Coffee hosted by LexusBoys and I brought my stock car to it lol. I met some cool people and I even got to park next to a familiar face on the forums. My car looks 10x higher than his in these pictures. I also have one at the gas station with my buddy and his Acura TSX before the meet.

I installed my Greddy intake thanks to a friend of mine and a helpful tutorial on the forums. This thing sounds amazing and I love it. I'm not sure if it has any performance enhancements (more hp, torque, etc.) but it sounds really good in my opinion.

*Sorry for the bad quality. Had to take it from my friends Instagram because I lost the picture.*

April 4th, 2014
Fast forward all the way to April where I began to get some bigger things for the car. This was the day where I got my new wheels. I got a set of 20" Vossen CV5 Matte Graphite Machined. I have been saying since the day I got the car that I was going to put CV5's on it and I finally did. These pictures are all at stock height. The wheel specs are 20x9 +32 in the front and 20x10.5 +45 in the rear. The tires are stretched because I did plan on lowering the car.

After months and months of waiting, I finally received my springs for my car. I went with RS*R Down Springs because they were the best fit for my wheels without any fender modifications. The drop is excellent and the ride is really good. I love the way they look with my CV5's. I wasn't able to get any pics from the shop because I left the car there all day but I got some pictures after they were done.

More things are coming soon but in time. I'm waiting on one part to be released so I am waiting for that to come out before I order the other part that goes with it. It might be complete by the end of the summer which would be great.

Nice! Debating on 19s or 20s for my set up on RSR Down Springs. Any rubbing with your 20s with people in the back?

I haven't had anyone in the back since I got the springs but I did have 4 people in the car at once and had no issues without them.

I've had friends in the back seat and no issues with driving. Just go really slow on speed bumps. Went a little to fast on one the other day not realizing and it did rub but nothing major.
