some here already know me ,my name is juan im julio's cousin (flygq4u). moved here to passaic park new jersey from new york about a year ago.

The title says it all..

Finally picked up My IS ... "its a celebration bitches" LoL.
car had been payed for a week or 2 but i just picked it up last week. it went straight into danny's house up in madison NJ ([email protected]) he is the best. he completly detailed the car in and out,removed the xpel on the hood and bumper witch was a bitch and also cut off the lower mesh grille. he can almost do anything,email him for prices,etc.

the car was brought in from carlisle PA and bought from "ISJEFF"

2002 MSM -bought with 43k miles.

here are some pics,including some real clean work done this weekend by "Acosta Motor Sports" in wallington NJ. i am very pleased with their work they installed a greddy turbo timer for me and they also ran a vaccum line so i can get my hands on the boost controller from inside the car because it was mounted in the engine bay where i could not controll it on the run.once again there work was very "nice and clean" look at that boost controller! it looks like the car came like that:















both of my cousin's and i have 2002 MSM's we keep the lexus is300's in the family lol. we took some pics this weekend and will post soon.
the Z edition grille is now custom thanks to a friend of mine who did a exellent job. also thanks to Danny for all his work and help.

Hey G, he had Danny271 take OFF the lower mesh grill of the stock bumper because he wanted it exposed to show off the intercooler ;)

THE XPEL WAS ON SINCE 2002 SO BY NOW IT WAS PRETTY WORN ,HAD SCRATCHES AND CHIPS ON IT WITCH DID NOT COMPLIMENT THE PAINT AT ALL WHEN IT ACTUALLY HAD SOME PRETTY HEALTHY PAINT. THE PAINT LOOKS GREAT AND IS IN GREAT CONDITION. I CAN TELL YOU ONE THING THOUGH.. IT WASNT EASY TO REMOVE IT AT ALL IT HAS SOME NASTY GOO USED TO STICK THE XPEL ON THE CAR WITCH IS A BITCH TO REMOVE.
