It is strange how we Lexus owners feel about this, whereas over in the BMW forums they all flock to put m3 stuff i.e bumpers, spoilers, engines, etc on their cars.

It would be different if it had some aero or other benefitial aspect other than aesthetics, unfortunately I have to agree with the "posing" comments.

given that there are currently only two choices to have quad exhaust (WALD or IS-F) I would go with the IS-F bumper everytime.

I thought about doing this conversion with an aftermarket exhaust. Just get a cheap exhaust (m2 exhaust). Cut the tip off and weld it or have a shop weld it to your quad tips. That way you won't have to worry about the tips being high on one side

Did you end up doing this? I'm in need of replacing my rear and would like to do this, but it doesn't make that much sense to pay $300 just for the tips...

Did you order the whole kit shown here?: http://is.sewellparts.com/accessorie...2009/1954.html

If not and you ordered the tips separately, you'll probably need to get the mounting hardware too.
