Default IS-F Rear bumper Updated 10/01 with Pics.

I was wondering if the IS-F rear bumper would fit on a 2009 IS250 without any modifications. And does anybody on here have one to see how it looks like? The only thing I'm worried about is the extra cut out the IS-F has for the exhaust outlet. Thanks in advance

there was a thread a while back about this. I think it did fit the 06-08, but there was a pretty big gap between the bumper and the trunk. There are pics in the thread about it.

There is NO gap, it only looked like that in the angle of the pics. The ISF bumper
will fit the ISX50

It'll fit, just be aware that the shape of the IS-F rear bumper is different, specifically where the trunk meets the bumper. The "shelf" of the IS-F rear bumper sits lower, giving the appearance of a gap when compared to a regular 2IS bumper cover.

i know that the bumper fits, but can anyone confirm whether it is necessary to change the enforcement bar and the insert foam aswell? or will it be ok with the stock IS250 ones?

I suggest you ask an authorized Lexus body shop. They will have the answer for you.

If you're going to go through the trouble of installing an IS-F bumper, why not do it right? If it were me I'd buy the foam energy absorber to make sure I got the best fit possible. The reinforcement bar is identical between the two models, you don't have to worry about that.

NO. Remember, the IS-F exhaust doesn't actually go through the bumper, it stops at the collectors (the quad tips). You would have to modify the exhaust to get it to work with the IS-F bumper.
