I feel you, I'm in the boat, there is very few things for the non f sport.
I wish there were more options to personalize these cars.

Welcome aboard. Here are the only 2 front lips I'm aware of. And 3rd one are the side splitters.

NIA Front Lip

Ebay side splitter

Literally 3 options I've come across. Maybe there are more.

Found another potential front lip to add to the options for base or non F-Sport models.

It's a universal sold by Ikon but I found images of it on a 3IS. At least in the pictures, I think it looks pretty good.



Heres the link to where they're still selling it. Never mind that it's for "BMW" I contacted them and they said it's the same one as in thes pictures.

Ikon Motorsports via Walmart.com





Here's another thread with other options since I'm looking at it.

I would just go with the NIA Auto Designs lip.

It's wishful thinking that an eBay lip will fit right, plus cheap -stuff- does't belong on a Lexus.

I agree with you generally speaking but we have such few options on this model thought I'd add here so we can relocate options later.

Here's my thoughts on why it's a potential option...

It's Polyurethane and if the correct size as shown I think it can be done to look good and give the otherwise more blan front end a nice appeal. I don't know that simply bolting this flat onto the underside of the bumper would be the way to go, would have to play around with it first.

$105 for lip +$25 materials to vinyl wrap. Maybe +$10 on hardware or additional fitting materials.
Return if doesn't fit after sizing up first. I have a roof spoiler from same seller I got painted but ended up wrapping, piece is good of quality as it needs to be.

Then also, could be a crap idea, lol.

$450 for NIA ($585 painted) or +$25 materials to vinyl wrap.

Although, if I still had a car budget (recently don't so why I'm interested ) the NIA is certainly preferred, they did a good job, at over 4x cost though.
