Hey yall, been on this site a while now (I mostly use for info, dont post much)... since owning an IS300 was but a dream. Well I have one now finally and her name is roxy (long story) as you probably have guessed... anyways Heres a few pictures of my girl on her old rims (ruff racing ADR copies 18x8.5 18x9.5s) and then on my recently acquired SSR comps 18x8 235/40 18x9 265/35....











Oh and here is a photo of my old girl Betsy- 83 corolla RWD 4spd man with original Panasport rims... :( Oh how I miss her... Im sorry but I would drive her over roxy anyday if she still ran... all 80hp....





Sorry about the Lychee trees in the way....

Anyways Roxy has an AEM intake and SSR wheels, 18% tint all around, CCD removed... Very soon in the future is an HKS Ti-Limited, Eibach prokit and koni yellows, a short shifter

Tell me what you think... (neg/posi)

thanks for all the comments guys, Yeah as soon as I put the SSR's on I noticed I definitely needed to lower the car and paint my brake calipers.

I wish I still had Betsy, I really loved that car, it was actually my dads first car, he even put the panasports on them way back when.... unfortunately the Diff went and I couldnt get a quote lower than 3000 to fix or swap a gt-s diff in so I had to sell it... A rich guy bought it off me tho for 3k actually and he plans to fix her up so hopefully shell have a better life with him... yeah and swapping the 20v 4ag was all I could think about when i had her (formula atlantic 13000rpm that was my dream)

Looks good. I think your IS is the first one that I've ever seen w/o a sun-roof. It looks great.
