not a fan of two tones but the car looks good! Maybe I'm being biased since I have the same kit

btw what is that badge on the right side of your trunk? hard to tell from here + I've never seen it before

I feel the lip kit is way to big/thick to be all white, and there are a lot of curves to it, I added the black to break up all the lines. I had the body shop paint the kit white, tape off the accents and spray black, color sand everything and then clear coat it as a whole, there are no paint lines that you can feel from the black to the white, pretty clean job imo

Looks good and assuming by your username you come from Mercedes Benz.
I do too. Had a w203.

Your IS looks clean, all you need now is those coils, exhaust and carbon fiber roof spoiler.
Any other mods?

Having the shop two tone the front lip was definitely a good idea since it is so large. Looks good!

Not a fan of the wheels, but once slammed then the 18's might look better.

I had a megan racing cf roof spoiler, the mold sucks and was bowed upward. I secured it with some of the strongest stuff i could find, it fell off!!! The megan racing one looks like the ones they sell on ebay for only $90, but i figured if i got a more known brand, would have been better. hella pissed

But ya, I used to have a 99 c43 w202, prolly the longest car i ever owned, 3 years lol

Welcome! Is your roof vinyl-wrapped or did you have it painted a matte black? I think a glossy black may have better matched your hood and trunk.

Also wondering what badge you have in place of IS250/IS350. It looks like an Audi S-Line emblem....

Anywho, the lip kit looks great!

i think the only way to pull off 18's is not having a gap or tuck, other then that looks good good good. but AVS or jdm visors is missing.

winner winner, its an audi s emblem, says "iS" lol

The roof is 3m dinoc carbon fiber

I will be lowering it to get rid of the wheel gap, but the lip already scrapes up driveways, dunno if its gonna be a good idea
