lexus has the black chrome emblems on their platinum cars, but the IS isn't available in platinum, so you could change all the other emblems except for the "IS300" one. those emblems are pricey as hell too. 2-4x more expensive then normal, pending which emblem

is there any way to get custom emblems? I was thinking of replacing the Lexus emblem on the trunk with my last name or something with exact lettering and size chromed like the IS300 emblem. the options seem to be get someone to do a plastic mold and then have it chrome plated (thats not what i want, won't the chrome come off?) or have a jeweler make a silver one for me, but the cost of a silver one in that thickness would be too much for such a mod. any places that make custom metal emblems?

Lexus has a black chrome kit, I almost got it on my LS. When I saw the chrome against the silver paint it looked too good to change.

$600?!? No freakin' way... not for emblems. I don't even know what these things look like but they absolutely *cannot* be worth that much! Holy cash-eating emblems, Batman!

Anyone got pics of these black chrome emblems?

well, he said "black crome" so maybe he meant something else??? if not, TRD.... chrome is spelled that way, not "crome", just as a FYI.

Sorry couldn't resist.

My friend had his rims dipped black chrome. Sounds like it would be cheaper to take yours off or buy a new set and just have them customed dipped. Cost would be alot less then $600.

Check out: www.airstreamsunroofs.com
Anthony mentioned to me that they would be having these for the IS300 very soon.....that was a few months ago.........
Call him up and he should be able to give you some info and not charge you $799.00 like the dealership does. He is very well priced. He does all of the installaeions of spoilers and carbon fiber/wood kits for a number of Southern California Lexus dealerships......

I heard if you chop up black chrome and dump it in your gas tank you can add 25hp, now that is worth $699
