Default Ryan's IS250 build!

I haven't been very active on my build thread but I still decided to redo it because the way things looked really bothered me; so lets get started!

I bought my 2007 IS250 back in January 2013. It had 61,000 miles and was 1GO (Dark Grey). Because of my location, it limited the mods I was willing to do.

July 2014: I began my first set of mods.
- HKS Axle Back exhaust bought through Charles (b2deigns)
- BC Coilovers 12k/10k bought through BC Superstore

Installation for both were done professional by the same shop. Adjustments to the coils were done by the two hands attached to my body.

August 2015: A long time since my next mod, which was bought from another member!
- 4GS F Sport conversion to my current 2IS: This mod is my most stressful. I took it to a local shop to get it repaired because when I bought it from Remy, it was a crashed bumper. Long story short, guy basically robs me and does nothing to the bumper, wasting months of my time, To this date, it is still not fixed (5/14/16) but hopefully it will be soon.

September 2015:
- MB Battles 18 x 9.15 +33 : Bought from a friend. Had to roll and pull the fenders. Cut the tabs to get these wheels to fit as well because the tires were way too big (225/45). Loved the wheels, unfortunately, they were later curbed because I let my mother move my car.

April 2016: My biggest mod, bags.
- Air Lift Performance 3P! Ordered and installed the bags by a local guy (518Motoring) who has done a ton of bagged cars in the area, The trunk is currently the one that was purchased through the forum but when i redo the colors and the line, I will post a picture!

Future Mod List which is always a work in progress..
- Authentic WALD Trunk Spoiler
- 78Works Headlights and Taillights
- WALD Side Skirts
- MyRide rear diffuser (?)
- Gram Lights 57Xtremes (?)
- Other Minor Things

After a full year, I'm finally ready to do some heavy modifiation to my car. But you have to start with the basics, rolled the fenders and got some wheels. Cut the bumper tabs cause I wouldn't need them cause that's the next project 😏😏

Nice to see another fellow lowered awd'er! How do you find the vibrations / wobble once you lowered? You look to be quite low for AWD! How are your CV's and components faired? Any premature wear / issues?

Looks great!

Thanks! The wobbles and vibrations, I was already use to that from last year so it's not a big deal for me. The rears are fine, except I rub on the liner but I'm too lazy to remove it. The fronts are such a pain because of the fender tab. Once I get my bumper finished, I'm going to address this issue either with relocation or quick release.

Thanks man! I feel like it's taking forever for me. My car just needs to be finished in time for Eurojam and Gumball in October. Hopefully getting the back done as well before then!

Sitting pretty on the bags but still too basic. Right after the bags were installed!

My current trunk set up for the Airlift! The trunk set was purchased from another member but I'm going to get it redone because the tanks leak. Matte white tanks w/ brushed copper lines and mounts. May change the floors to black later on but for now, it'll do.

New trunk set up done by local guy, 518 Motoring!



Power coated the tanks matte white with copper hardlines. Had a leak in one of the tanks so I replaced it and ended up getting the floating tank above. Replaced the lightweight wood with the darker wood in the picture. I have the Airlift emblem embedded into the floor but the picture was taken beforehand.

Thanks you. It's coming along slowly but surely. Hopefully getting some things done this year but not really getting lots of good news.
