Wow. That's a great price. Gotta love eBay.

Yeppppp...Ebay is the best in most cases. I installed it with the gap so that water will hopefully drain normally and not get stuck under the spoiler and diminish the life of the adhesive.

Here are a couple more shots of it installed:

Looking good man.

Anyone have the JDM Lexus Visors on their USB? Thinking of picking some up soon.

I'd like to see what the JDM visors look like compared to the avs ones.

Have a couple pictures of my new MTEC 8000k bulbs:

Just grabbed this bad boy...I'm sick of not having something on the driver's side of the trunk lid.

Also, what would you do in my situation? I've ordered several sets of HID bulbs and can't decide what I like. I currently have 8000k MTEC low beams and 6000k white w/ blue v-leds fogs that don't match perfectly. V-LEDS just sent me some 5000k D4S and H11 bulbs to see if I like how they match, and they match the led swoosh perfectly. Would you stay with the 8000k because our car is blue and it looks really good, or would you go with the 5000k because it matches the LED drl perfectly? I also have some 6000k MTEC h11 bulbs that I wanted to try and they are pure white w/ no hint of yellow or blue.

Thanks in advance for your opinions

I got AVS Visors - from Amazon. quality is ok for 100 bucks. I returned my first set to amazon because the chrome was cut wrong. Still 1/4 the cost of JDM ones. And im lowered on Megan EZs.

Just had a guy at my local bodyshop help me place the badge...worst part is I think I could have done a better job myself if I took the time.

End result: Looks pretty good, but could have been placed a tad higher. Worst case I can remove it and retape it with some more 3M.

Let me know what you think

I think it looks good as is the badge is in line with the right side IS 350 badge and if you raise it higher it will look off balance IMHO !

Looks good man. When you look at just the F Sport bage, it looks as if it could come up a bit. Yet when you look at both the F Sport and the 350 badge, they look pretty damn even.

So I guess it is good enough to not mess with it. Thanks for the feedback guys.

Then again, if you look at the area under the is350 badge you will see that there is more space than under the F-SPORT badge. I'd like it to be perfect, but...nothing is ever perfect.

I might just forget about it because I am the only one that will ever know.

Looks good...except for... that tag frame! Sorry I couldn't resist, I grew up half way between Gainesville and Tallahassee so the rivalry between UF and FSU is a big one.

My husband (I am married to the enemy) is going to the FSU game next weekend so there will be two USB IS's in Tallahassee when we hit town!
