Dont say "Lexus owners" because I for one think upgrading bumpers, body parts, lighting even engines towards the high end model side is a good thing. As you can read most of us welcome what he has done to his car, some dont but that does not constitutes "lexus owners".

I been upgrading my 06 IS350 to F sport and I will sport the F sport badge once I am done, no shame and if I stick an IS-F engine.......................I will leave it with the IS350 badge as a sleeper

If not and you ordered the tips separately, you'll probably need to get the mounting hardware too.
i just ordered the tips. i didnt see mounting hardware on the parts portion of sewell for the bumper?...if you look at the start of the forum the guy didnt order any of that.... is it possible to mount it with screws from somewhere else?

You can try going to a hardware store and getting some bolt, nuts, and washers.

I did email Sewell a while ago when I was planning to get the OEM tips and he said the hardware to mount them were sold separately. This is the link they emailed me back with but you'll have to look at the diagram to see which parts you'll need:

Looks like the retainer brackets help secure the tips to the bottom of the bumper: http://www.clublexus.com/forums/6871025-post99.html

Hey that's me. Yes the brackets hold the bottom of the exhaust tips to the bumper.
