Hey, I was at Hot Import Daze yesterday. The first IS near the door was almost 100% stock. It had a L-tuned grill and some different rims. THe other two ISs were pretty weak as well. The modifications appeared to be purely cosmetic. I think the highlight of the show was the Skyline.

Hot Import Daze was a great show! I have to say that I was thrilled to see so many IS'...five if I counted correctly. Went to the Import show over in Sacto a couple of weeks ago and there was just one Lexus, an SC430.

Can't wait to check out the pics I took. Waiting to get my camera back from out of my buddies car. Got a picture of that Skyline!

the IS at the show were weak?? i mean the one near the door was mine, and i admit that is weak. all i have is Tien Type HA, apexi N1 exhaust, Volks SE-37, 18", and the L-tuned grill. but did you guys see the white one next to the yellow one? that white one is FLARED out, and the entire car is molded into one piece. i think that white one is the nicest IS i have ever seen. and the owner of the yellow IS, or the Carisma one, came up to me and offered me the C-Westin full bodykit for $1250. i think that's a pretty good deal since it is $450 off the retail price. the l-tuned grill cost me $210, what do you guys thinks of the price? how much does it usually cost??

You could do it two ways, one by getting any type of lights that use your cigarette lighter as a power source and just running them under the dash, but then you'd have to see the adapter and the wires. You can probably find them at any car shop that sells racing pads and other various car accessories. Anyway as for the other way Im not sure how to do it, but my friend somehow hid the wires and wired it so that he can turn them on when he turns his headlights on in addition to leaving the cigarette lighter open. When I find out how to do it that way I'll let you know how, but if you can't wait, just use option 1. As for cost, it depends on what kind of lights you get, they have small ones which run starting from 20 bucks, and i've seen some as much as 50.
