Well lads, was on here a while back until me and my first IS200 met a lamp post at speed

After nearly a year of diesel i decided i needed another Lexus in my life so bought this:

Image

Left her the way i bought her for a while but then 'the bug' hit again, spent ages trying to find wheels i liked before finally ordering a set of XXR 522's in Chromium Black 17x9 +25 for the back and 17x8 +35 for the front. Next up came a set of BC Racing coilovers along with a Vortex Generator, A TRD grill and Altezza wind deflectors meaning a trip to the bodyshop was in order! After test fitting the wheels noticed a bit of rolling and pulling was in order so putting that and the fact there was a few car park dings and scratches along with surface rust starting to form on a rear door gave great chance to respray the whole car!

Image

the chat about colour came into play, having known the lads spraying the car for a while i told them close to factory and walked away!

Got sent this still without seeing the car

Then got a phonecall to say the car was ready to be collected!

To say i was over the moon would be an under statement! Until i got bored of every other IS200 or Altezza having the tte lip or legana bumper so i purchased a Replica Vertex bumper

Meanwhile dimpled and grooved discs with znoelli pads were fitted, a cobra back box and the mid box was removed! And after a chat to Nick had a brand new gear knob on route also

Image

Also to finish up the front of the car i also ordered Black headlights from Nick, these still are not fitted but hopefully will have them in soon!

IN relation to the bumper, Brian Campbell in driftkits is the man to talk to! Very good fit for a fibreglass replica and couldn't recommend him enough!

they are sick looking compared to stock lights, and will completely change the front of any car in my opinion....well worth the dollar!
