There seem to be a ton of new IS300 owners in NoVa. Congrats on your purchase. Hopefully you will enjoy it as much as I do.
$225 was the repair of ONE wheel. But since you have a sedan you are fine just getting 17x7 all around. You can get already refurbed wheels for way less than that. I use wheelsandcaps.com whenever I buy wheels because I have had a lot of good luck with them.
I also had great service from autorimshop.com. They were the ones who sent me the wheel after I sent the wrong size one back. They ended up not charging me for that one and didn't ask for it back. Plus the woman working for them was very attentive and nice. wheelsandcaps isn't quite as friendly.
I got the lighter from a junk yard. My advice, since it sounds like you are going to get a new stereo, don't bother with the lighter (unless you smoke) and get a USB plug for it instead. That's what I have in there now.
If you have a black interior, seats shouldn't be a problem. It would be worth a trip up to Mt. Airy Maryland to the junk yard there. There were really nice full leather heated seats in two cars when I was there a couple weeks ago. I tried getting one out but it was slid too far forward to reach the bolts.
In any event, I was able to find black seats everywhere I looked. Try Car-Part.com, that's how I found mine.
The camera I have is a Boyo VTB123HD and I got it for $46 shipped off ebay. It does require drilling and it comes with the bit you need. But I'd probably recommend just getting a license plate frame camera so you don't need to put giant holes in anything and you can take it off for another car later if you want.
Best of luck with your new car. I can't stop looking for a sedan for myself. If one with low miles shows up close by I'll be in a bit of a bind.
