Default Silver IS350, Franklin Blvd. Gastonia, NC

After a long day at work, I was driving home tonight, and noticed a Silver IS350, nice wheels riding down the strip around 10:30pm. If you are a member here, just wanted to say nice ride. I was in the White 350 going the same direction.

Cool.. just wanted to say nice ride. Couldnt see the rims as you were rolling the whole time down.. What type are they? You turned off into Walmart right?

I try to come out there every now and then, but not alot of people out there lately. Back when I was younger, it was THE place to be. Times change.

The only mods so far are F-Sport Rear sway bar, and F-sport springs. Love the difference it made though. Considering adding the front sway bar and f-sport shocks to it.

That's cool, I'm lowered on H&R springs. My next purchase will more then likely be the f-sport sway bar set also.

I believe you will LOVE the handling difference with the sway bars. I just about cant run this car off a curve. I play on the on/off ramps at the I85/74 interchange near kings mtn every now and then. The car is imo 100% funner to drive compared to oem state.
