I see everyone keeps saying rear diffuser but there are currently tons of options. Everyone acts like they cost so much and maybe that it is just that I am used to buying JDM CF parts for my TSX but 1200-1400 for a CF rear diffuser is not really that much considering the low sales potential for parts for a car like the IS-F. I paid $1000 for one for my TSX and there is obviously a much larger market for that car. I mean especially when considering the cost of the car do you really expect the cost to be the same as buying them for a Honda or similar cost car? You pay for Quality. I stopped buying CF parts from places like VIS and Seibon cause in my opinion the quality is just not there. Just my 2cents.

If he wants to sell 30 lips or diffusers.. hes not going to get 30 orders when its priced like all the other pieces out there. The only way to sell that many asap is to be the best deal around.

^^^I also agree. I don't like any of the current diffusers except the EuroTek. I really like the TRD diffuser, but I think it's $5k!

under hood panels, engine cover, brake duct and rear seat tray in cf. let's get stuff that aren't available in cf yet. id pay if fitment is perfect. nothing for the F is cheap, so I'm not expecting a big price difference from what's currently out there. anything with real cf with perfect fitment will come at a premium.

Thats the main reason why I haven"t bought one yet. The TRD version would be perfect.

Side pillars
Extentions for the brake ducts

Front lip with a full under tray

Agree. We have performance cars why not make a functional front lip. (Not just for looks)
