It looks cool, I wanted to do it, but the people at lexus told my shop it wouldnt fit right without extra mods. But IS-f exhaust and intake would make it complete.. if you dont want to pay for that, just make a hole in your muffler with a screw driver

thanks everyone for your feedback. everyone has their own opinions. it is good to hear your honest opinions at the end of the day. some may not like the look and others may think it's posing. to each his own..

i personally dont think it's posing at all. there are many people out there who genuinely like the look of the stacked ISF tips. I am one of them and because of this i wanted to do this mod. not because i want to look like an ISF or want people to think i got an ISF. What would be crossing the line and posing would be if it was de-badged and badged with ISF emblems. I am absolutely happy with my IS250 emblem without the need to disguise it as an ISF or anything.

Like I said everyone has their own opinions

Oh sorry, i forgot to comment on that. the colour does actually match 99.9% but in the picture it looks not 100% because the weather was really bad during the install with constant drops of rain. the iphone wasnt able to take perfect colour pictures after all

ISF owners are shaking their heads. Here come all of the Camry smoked a Silver ISF videos on youtube. Seriously, looks like a quality job, nicely done.

The rear swap was very well done.

That said, it does seem out of place on a stock 250. This mod on a highly modded car would look proper, IMO. New wheels and a drop would be a good start.

great job on doing it~!!
but it looks too aggressive for your car for now
more aggressive bodykit and rims might compliment the rear

but you already know that it will never look as good as a REAL IS-F

You know if you get good quality oval shaped tips and some mesh material you can actually create a very similar look to the IS-F tips. When i was installing it i examined it and it isnt really that difficult to replicate the look by DIY without spending on OEM tips. Its just like two tips welded to a mesh and bolted down
