Default GS F/ 2019 IS350 F Sport/ 2nd IS350

My Wifeís and I Lexus collection. Ordered parts for her 2019 IS350 F Sport triple beam with Mark Levinson carbon fiber lower grill. Looks like the OEM GS F but for the IS and carbon fiber mirror caps. The 2nd gen IS350 is loaded with the F Sport accessories Front and rear sway, shocks, springs, wheels, Exhaust, Bodykit GFX Kit by Lexus, carbon fiber engine cover. Replaced the front lip with the 5axis lip Didnít get the F Sport front and rear brake calipers/ rotors because the OEM are good enough.

I had this custom made from my friend for my wife’s car. I think it came out great. I bought a real carbon fiber license frame and the letters are vynl pearl white.

That looks pretty similar to the plate frame I have, minus the "IS 350" lettering of course. I just wanted to say that I've learned the hard way about putting the frame on the front of the car. It gets pretty beat-up over time, and mine has a few nicks in it. Just something to think about - perhaps putting it on the back would be better to preserve the look of the frame.

All the cars have clear bra. Going to clear bra the frame also so when I wash the car I don’t accidentally damage the letters. Thank you for the heads up.

Yep, that'd do it, haha. TBH I was just surprised at how quickly mine got messed up. Only a few months in, and it was pretty bad. Ah, well, from > 10 feet away it looks good.

Congrats on the pickup, btw. I am looking at the possibility of finding a CPO RC F for my next car - let me know how your F is doing.

Installed the Real carbon fiber caps for the side view mirrors. I had the base of the side view mirrors wrapped in gloss black vinyl and the rear spoiler wrapped in fake gloss carbon fiber by vvivid. I’ll install the lower grill real carbon fiber soon. Wrapped by Element 6 Design in Roland Heights. Real carbon fiber mirror caps by Saga carbon.

If the wife says yes I’ll get her the Advan Racing GT gloss black for her IS350. This will match her car white and black theme.
