I stumbled across this site selling body kits. Check out the aircraft wing spoiler No. 162:
http://www.groundeffects.com/wings/lexIS300.htm

Now here is the question. Why would anyone want to put this "thing" on the back of their new IS300? I'm curious to hear some explanations from people who think the wing-thing is cool. Then again...some people really dig the cheap plastic knobs on the dash of the Chevy Cavalier....

Shuttup man, don't make fun of my spoiler. It makes my car go so much faster, even more so that the neon lic. plate cover, or the coffee-can muffler, or even the TRD stickers.

Hey, hey!! No erebuni!!!! They SUCK!!!!!!!
Anywayz, the reason people add those big-azz-weird-looking spoilers is to get some more horse power. Remember. F1 wings adds 1000+ hp in some cases.

under 21 (for some people, mentally) usually equals cheap, overdone body cladding of some sort or another.

****, I thought I was the only one who thought all those mods were hideous. I was gasping at the pictures on this site of all those modified IS300s knowing that the same owners are out there bragging that they drive a Lexus IS. But hey, their money, right?

The wings are nasty but some of the body kits are nice.. the third body kit on the bottom is the one that Rod Millen Motorsports offers..

UMMMMMMM GONG, no where near large enough. I wouldn't settle for less than at least a half point increase in Cd..... IMHO
