Default Ben's 2008 IS250 Build!

Hey! So I finally pulled the trigger and decided to mod my car. I recently sold my motorcycle to invest in my 2008 Obsidian IS250!

The mods I currently have shipping at the moment are:

ISC Coilovers
18x9.5 +30 Varrstoen ES111 and 2 Goodyear Eagle Sports A/S 225/40/18 for the rears
Complete Wald replica kit ( I know i will get a lot of smack for this but I'm a college student on a budget, I loved the look and wanted it! )
Takeda Intake
Invidia Mids
Tanabe Cats

And stuff that I might consider getting soon!

2012 Headlights --- Does anyone know where I can get a pair for a good deal? eBay will cost me about 1600-2200 for a pair of 2012's.

Plastidip in FlexBlue!

Please let me know if you guys like/hate what I have on order! I want to know if I made somewhat the right choice!

Pictures soon!

Great start! And dont worry about the rep stuff, weve all got budgets and this forum is more forgiving than most.

I'll have pictures soon as the stuff comes in!

I'm still debating between getting 8.5 fronts and 9.5 rears. I have to call up my buddy who orders the stuff for me check it out. If I run 10.5 rears I would have to roll and pull my fenders and probably do a lot of work in the rear, so I decided to either go squared or 8.5 9.5!

btw, I'm running 9.5 F, 10.5 R, on 18s. No problem at all. Love the fitment. You may have to roll rear fenders. But i'm not that slammed.

Hey guys so just to update all the stuff came in today, i will upload a picture tomorrow of all the goods! Invidia mid pipes were backordered for a month from the guy i was buying from so I might as well go to a vendor on here and get me one! I was wondering if it's a huge difference in sound with just the tanabe exhuast with oem mids?
