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.

Here are two pieces that were only placed on dealer installed L-Tuned Packages

The "Port of Call" Sticker


The L-Tuned Tire Information Sticker


The L-Tuned Exhaust Information Sheet


The L-Tuned TRD Front Lip for USDM bumpers








Genuine L-Tuned Stamp on the inside of all L-Tuned bodykit parts (IS Series)


The L-Tuned sideskirt for the GS had a slightly different L-Tuned stamp



Here's what a complete set of Exterior L-Tuned badges looks like. Comes with 3 badges, 2 mounting templates, instructions.


L-Tuned Exterior Badge set for the GS300/400 (Australia) - Note the rear emblem in this set does NOT come embossed which makes it distinctly different than the USDM emblems


L-Tuned Interior Emblem for the IS300

A truly remarkable post.

Even thought that's a GS sticker, I assume it was probably the same for the IS.

Thanks Happy.

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.

Hey Digger,
My thoughts are the same... Just like the "Port of Call" Sticker; this one was probably the same thing.


"NEW" Fact
The Original L-Tuned Packages were only available on Black Onyx, GGP and MSM

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!

Actually I love where he placed the rear emblem and was thinking about doing the same at one point.
