Hey so I'm finally getting around to posting my build for my 2is.
I got it about a 2 years ago (used) and it was bone stock.
In just the last few months, modding has begun (In order of install)
->Precision Acoustics dual 10" subwoofer (with built in amp)
->Plastidipped AWD emblem
->Back and rear windows tinted
->Oval exhaust tips (GX460)
->Takeda Stage 2 Pro Dry S intake
->Avant Garde M310 18x8.5 +35
->Hankook Ventus S1 Noble2 225/40/18
***After getting all of my mods installed I thought it would also be worthwhile to mention a few problems I encountered when installing my aftermarket parts which would affect all is250 users.
-I blew the stock sub and wanted more boom!
-I hated the amber turn signals... Redouts!
-Found a neat thread on ClubLexus about plastidipping badges instead of removing them!
***Make sure you leave each coat about 45 minutes to dry on a warm day outside! I did 6 coats! (Yes "Lol" I used 6 coats for that little "awd" badge)
The first time I tried this it did not dry and turned out to be a huge mess. Also make sure you spray from a distance and be patient! Don't try to get it all in one coat as it will Not work.
-Got my back and rear windows tinted as they were not tinted stock.
-Ordered the "Oval Exhaust Tips" off Sewell for the is250.
***They are actually just tips from a GX460 and they DO NOT just clamp on as advertised. They stick out quite a bit and the clamp is too big to grab onto the muffler... Got them cut down, clamp removed and welded to the muffler!
-Installed the Takeda Stage 2 Pro Dry S [carid(dot)com] ... this thing is LOUD when at WOT
***There is a little electronic box that was in the way of the new intake frame... I had to unbolt it and zip tie it down in another spot
-Got a set of Avant Garde M310's 18x8.5 +35 [getyourwheels(dot)com]
-Got a set of Hankook Ventus S1 Noble2's in 225/40/18 [tirerack(dot)com]
And thats it for now... thinking about lowering but the roads are terrible here and winters are unfair. Springs are not the problem price wise, its the ridiculous quotes for labour... I'd do it myself, but I don't have the tools and time at the moment.
Let me know if you come across any problems with these parts as I have probably seen them.
Let me know what you think!
