For all intents and purposes.

I recommend powerslot cryo treated rotors. They should hold up nicely.

+1 to checking brake fluid. Especially if it comes on over bumps, that would be the fluid level being close to the trigger level.

Should mention as well, when I had my TSX, I had a similar issue. Rotors would be toast in no time at all. I switched to powerslot cryo treated rotors and hawk pads and noticed a big improvement.

They really shouldn't be warping. I brake hard sometimes and have had zero issues and I don't even think the fronts on my car are OEM pads and rotors. They were done just before I bought the car,...

I think the TSX had more room in the back than the IS.

With that being said, I don't sit back there, so I don't care.

And I used 3M 1080 carbon fiber.

They're the same between American/Canadian.

The differences are between IS250 and IS350.

Then for each there's different types of pads, such as low dust pads.

I also had an 04 TSX and now have an IS350 with sport package. I wouldn't let that be a deciding factor. The suspensions difference is negligible and I replaced my shocks/springs anyways.

I don't...

Depends on the oil used and where you live. I am sure an oil change in Vancouver, Canada is more than in Texas.

Cheap oil change = $30

It's ridiculously easy to remove the grill, easier than taping up the surrounding area and you can do a higher quality job.

Super easy to plast dip the grill. Easy to take out without removing the bumper. The chrome piece separates from everything and is easy to paint. Just make sure its clean and the paint can isn't cold.

You're going to have to pay more for a car then, no doubt or get really lucky. But odds are if a good deal comes up, you won't be able to make it there in time to snag it.

No kids, no wife and a half decent job at 25. Plus I do all my own work and source out the best price on parts, new or used.

I would recommend, try plasti dipping it first as a protective layer, then spray paint. That way if it doesn't turn out, you can peel it off.

Haha I have a chirp sound too from the glove box. Haven't heard it lately though and wasn't able to pinpoint where it was coming from exactly since it's out of reach while driving.

Is it as good as the factory F sport, no. Is it still good, yes, I think so. Improves the look and depending on which one you buy, you can run without a Lexus logo.

Shock not strut.

Usually you would feel something fairly obvious if a shock is blown. Either a floating feeling over bumps, or a rougher ride.
