Default ISCjonny's Budget Friendly Build.. NOT Budget Friendly anymore...

Well.. after being MIA for the past year after selling my old IS350 and starting a family.. Here's the ISC i picked up last year for my wife and left it stock until now.. I know its not gonna be as crazy as before.. but diapers and formula are not cheap.. So here's my best at a Budget Friendly Build. HAHA.

Picked up the car back in March 2010.. Went home that night and swapped out the intake and installed 8k lows, 8k fogs, and LED interior lights..

1 week later.. car got tinted..

then nothing for 6 months.. until Tim (LEDguy) came by and hooked up the console LED's for my wife. (Pink/White theme).

then nothing again for 6 months until now.

19x8.5/19x10 LC818 - Thanks to Zoeb @ Wheeldude.
Bridgestone RE760sport 235/35/19F & 275/30/19R - Thanks to Joseph @ Tire Outlet Alum Rock
Custom Stainless Piping for Fabulous Exhaust - Thanks to Joseph again.
Tein Springs (for now until coilovers are fabricated) - Thanks to Trieu & Cary @ Speed Element

Just washed after getting it back.

your budget friendly build is more than what a lot of people spend to mod their cars!!

lmao, you went from a seemingly more family friendly lexus IS350 to a much less family friendly but super tight ISC after starting a family? get it how you live!

the ISC is a really tight ride as-is but you just raised the bar on them significantly.

has anyone modded a ISF fenders and kit on one of these yet? :thinking:

nope.. after holding on to my full payment for over 6 months.. i was told by the company that was in contact with branew and in charge of importing the kit for me that.. "Branew replied back saying they are not ready to produce the kit at this time." So i cancelled the order and got my money back.. IF its true or not that Branew not ready to produce the kit.. i don't know. but after waiting for over 6 months.. i just didnt care anymore so i never bothered looking into it.

But hopefully i have something else in the works thats on stateside.
