Default Mods.

Couple questions for everyone as I look to start modding.

I want the oem rear lip for my '08 350. Sewell has it for $235. Anyone have any experience with these http://www.ebay.com/itm/Lexus-IS250-...-/400314184427

The OEM front lip is $500 from Sewell. Anyone know an aftermarket one that fits right that looks like OEM?

Everyone loves the Joe-Z intake tube. However I've heard it's quiet. I like the noise I got from my afe intake on my jeep. It was loud at 3500+ RPM. Will the Joe-Z do this for me?


One last question for now. Might be a dumb one. (I'm a new lexus owner) How do I find out for sure what package my car has?

Many go for the Fsport intake but IMO its a waste of money cause you get the same thing by adding the Joez pipe and a high flow air filter and it will be louder around 3k RPM and to match the actual box from an fsport you would have to dremmel a hole in the front which is what I did and the sound is much more throatier

Here's a link to someone that did the same to their GS so you can get the idea and thats all an fsport intake is... So for a fraction of the price you can do this

For the lip spoiler, I had that one when I first bought the car. I liked it and it fit perfectly.

For the intake, get the JoeZ because like it was said, it's just a better price for the money. It is quieter than the F-sport or other intakes out there but you can add a filter or cut a hole in your stock box which will resemble that of the f-sport box.

And for the package, the easiest way would be to call a dealer, give them your vin, and they'll tell you right away. (ClubLexus may have a link for that as well through their tools but I'm not sure about that..)
