This should be interesting.

IS-F (in exchange for 09s)
06-08 mirrors (in exchange for 09s)
Bags

Not doing a crazy setup from the get go instead of doing what everyone else was doing.

I'm more of a "performance" I use that word loosely as I drive a IS250 haha. I was scared to drive my car the way I wanted to, the wiring wasn't done well, and UAS forgot to send me some brackets after I installed the kit which would be a ***** and a half to put in. Now I just have boxes sitting in my living room worth $2k with no interested buyers.

BTW - The alarm will help in the long run, door dings, people trying to mess with your car and even theft in parts or if our cars begin to be stolen.

Oh yeah I regret not getting a 350

Ahhh i see. The aralm could, but it wouldnt trigger my puddle lights or dome lights. im **** about that since my sideskirt puddle lights wouldnt work. I ended up having a tilt sensor and ding / glass breakage sensor module implemented to my factory oem alarm. The guys who do MOBILE TRACE for lexus, hooked me up with everything.

MV - i have a 12" ported box with a 1500 watt kickr amp.

My biggest and probably only modding regret would be getting 235/35/19 instead of 225/35/19 on my front wheels.

And I was debating whether or not to get 235/35/19 or 225/35/19 on my front wheels.

What are you dropped on?

I regret getting Limo tint when I first bought my car.

I was running negative 1 finger gap (on BCR's, 10K/8K, full dampening) for a while and it was rubbing like CRAZY. It's now raised to zero finger gap and it still rubs on dips. Plus, I think 225/35/19 (on 19x8.5) matches the profile of 265/30/19 (on 19x9.5) better.

Buying an IS350 with the intention of power modding...
I also bought 2 12" subs and an amp from a buddy of mine had them installed launched the car the next day and sent it flying across my trunk.
