oh and if anyone decides to do this mod, i forgot to mention that the following two part number items are also needed:

52577-53020
52578-53020

they are basically retainer brackets for the bumper and exhaust tip

would the exhaust tips stick perfectly centered thru the holes of the bumper? because like someone said, i wanna see what 2 HKS hi power exhaust tips look like thru that. and personally i don't like the quad tips like that so, i would prefer rigging an aftermarket exhaust to shoot on thru there, and mesh around it.

How is this posing? Its just like any other F-sport product. Lexus is now offering an F-sport package that includes steering wheel, seats, and other things from the F for the ISx50. Does that mean its a poser from the factory?

Looks fantastic! Nice way of saving 20k from the price tag. All you need now are the fenders and the front bumper. I like it!~

Good job on all your DIY work!!!

Glad I was able to help you through this process.

People, please with the silly comments already..

This is NO different from all the members that have installed IS-F tail lights, Rear Spolier, 19" BBS Wheels, Shift ****, Interior trim, Steering wheels, etc.. etc.. etc.. onto to their IS250 or IS350..

OEM Upgrade for the FTMFW!!!!

Plus, the 2010 IS250 & IS350 "version F" package in Canadian, European & Japanese market offers a whole bunch of "F" components.
F Rear Spoiler, F Grill, F Seats, F Steering wheel, F Door Sills, Ultrasonic Blue Mica paint, etc etc..

We covered this about 8 weeks ago.. Changes for 2010 IS350

Looks to be just the Front Seats, Grill design, Trunk Spoiler, Steering Wheel & Door Sills for the Sedan.


Here are the upgrades it will have in Japan... Notice the color too..


**DO NOT EXPECT TO SEE THIS PACKAGE OR OPTIONS ON US SPEC MODELS**

Great way to empty out the IS-F parts bin!!

Nice work but don't understand it. 4 huge exhausts on a car with 204 hp. Sorry not for me.

I'm going to have to agree with him on this. You got the look. (kind of) but not the power to back it up. This is deff posing. At least get some descent wheels, a nice drop, is-f tail lights, an exhaust to complete this. A for effort But an F for the mod. just my opinion.

I hate to agree but I think it's posing as well....but only because it's the 250 instead of the 350. Even with the 350 the pipes aren't really connected. Even on the F they are just for show so I guess it's posing from the factory.
That's cool, I'm gonna do some posing too after I put the fack shark fin on my wife's GS300. She wants it and doesn't care what anyone says.
Neither should the guy who put the stacked exhaust tips on his 250.

looks good. i wonder if the 2010 is250/350-c front bumper fits the 250/350 sedan? if so it would really finish off the look of your car.
