okay...
this is what you'll neeed....
some nice bright florescent lights in your garage....couple mirrors....and some car wax....heres what you do...
wax your car...don't forget to clean it first...

install the florescent lights on the sides and on top of the ceiling of your garage...(dont turn them on yet!)...

now the mirrors is the tricky part..you're funna have to park your car at an angle first...i say about 45degrees
now place the mirrors just in front of the driver door with a couple of magazines and maybe a flower...a black flower...

you're all set...a car just like turboIS....=)....

correction, some fluorescents have the same if not better quality than most incandescent lamps. It all depends on the phosphors used in coating the lamps. The trick is to mimic the color rendering quality of the sun.

Ever notice that the meat looks really red in a grocery store? or that the vegies look really green? Then you get home and they look really bland in comparison? The stores use lamps which "bring out" the desired colors. Meat lamps bring out the reds, and veggie lamps bring out the greens. When you want an accurate view of any particular color, you should look at it under the noon sun.

(sorry, but I work in lighting design, so I had to show I knew something about something so you all don't think I'm just a spamming lurker)

Well, XS Engineering Prototype some stuff for my Eclipse. Front Mount Intercooler Kit! I've know the guys at XS for about 3 years now. So one day I told XS I was going to buy an IS300. They told if I got an IS300 before this date. They would use my car to Design a Turbo Kit for the IS. The Apexi hook up was all through XS. As you know XS is the Largest Dist. of Apexi Parts in the US. So that one was easy. The owner of XS knows the guys at MotoRex that's how I got C-West body kit. So in short XS got me everything pretty much, and it was just being in the right place at the right time...

Again,

Pure unadulterated RICE.

Slammed Suspension, Large Stickers On Windshield,Plastic Non-Functional BodyKit,
Stickers on side of car,

Why would anyone in their right mind want the Lexus IS300 to look like that.

Pure Rice Ghetto.

stockIS3, why would anyone waste their time posting the same comments again and again? You're entitled to your opinion, but why do you feel the need to post your "ghetto rice" diatribe everytime? Is your life that unfulfilling that you have to do things like this to feel better?

Scrap.

I was actually planning on getting the CWest kit too. I was wondering how much would the total kit would cost and where is an online site I can order it from? Also, is there a way to have the stock foglamps fit into the space provided by the front spoiler of the kit? If not, what kind of foglamps would fit flush in it? Please let me know thanks!!
