The Comprehensive L-Tuned Thread * fixed images and files
In my 5+ years of searching for the complete L-Tuned package I came across a lot of information from the web, dealers, and some great people.
Here's everything you need to know about the discontinued L-Tuned line including original installation documents, US Trademark and Patents, brochure, TRD part numbers.
In August of 2001, Lexus launched a limited edition version of the IS300 called L-Tuned. Most of these cars were assembled at the dealer, however some were assembled at the port where they landed in the states; the only distinction being a sticker on the front windshield. These new L-Tuned versions came in two packages, a Stage I and Stage II which were comprised of various performance and cosmetic upgrades.
These upgrades included:
* L-Tuned Body Kit (Front Bumper with Fogs, Side Skirts, Rear Valence)
* L-Tuned Grille (TRD/Altezza Grille with L-Tuned Exterior badge)
* L-Tuned Spoiler (TRD)
* L-Tuned Springs (Rebranded Eibach Pro Kits)
* L-Tuned Sways (Rebranded Eibach Sway Bars)
* L-Tuned Exhaust (TRD)
* L-Tuned 18" wheels (Rebranded Rays Versus Campionato 225/40/18)
* L-Tuned Badges (3 Exterior, 1 Grille, 1 Interior Dash Badge)
* L-Tuned Floor Mats
The Original L-Tuned Packages were only available on Black Onyx, GGP and MSM.
Shortly after its release, the L-Tuned brand, a division of TRD was discontinued in 2003. Today, the L-Tuned brand is one of the rarest packages available for the IS300.

F******* awesome post!
:) feel free to share anything else you found during your search!
A truly remarkable post.
Even thought that's a GS sticker, I assume it was probably the same for the IS.
why in the hell did they ever discontinue the wheels?
What's up Happy! Great post!
Hey Chigger! Long time!
Yeah, I figured there's no sense in keeping this stuff to myself. The most interesting thing I ran across was that US Patent Application...lots of background in there.
My thoughts are the same... Just like the "Port of Call" Sticker; this one was probably the same thing.
The Original L-Tuned Packages were only available on Black Onyx, GGP and MSM
what about red? there are several red ones around also.
btw, i love my L-tuned is300!
orignal owner here
wow I couldn't have said it any better myself Happy!!
I think you should include the L-Tuned badging template pdf...cause otherwise people will be putting their exterior L-Tuned badges in the wrong places cough cough Roswell cough cough
also, I have a friend that has an authentic L-Tuned IS300 and his sun visors have a L-Tuned badge on them! I was wondering if they were authentic (came installed from the dealer) or was it an aftermarket creation from somewhere else?
anyone seen this before?
Templates coming up!
Those visor stickers were aftermarket or a custom job.
From what I know, red wasn't one of the original colours but looks great all the same!
Roswell... Hee Hee.
Actually I love where he placed the rear emblem and was thinking about doing the same at one point.
Thanks for this
