Finally changed the air filter in my 2008 IS 350, almost a year and a half after I bought the car (it was bought new Jan 2009). I did it pretty late, the milage was at 25422 miles, 10k miles longer than it should have been. there wasn't much to it, but I still took a few pics along the way and made a blog post about it here: http://shahryar.net/2010/05/31/changing-the-air-filter-in-my-2008-is-350/

Here's a pic of the dirty filter I pulled out:

And here's pic of the new filter I put in:

it's a blitz air filter, I believe I've read that It can last longer, but not sure of how much longer it can last with cleaining or how often to clean or best way to clean it (I saw this post from kayotik and he mentioned using simple green and warm water).

Threw the old filter in the recycle bin thinking it might have a chance at being recyclable.

if it helps anyone. I saw this post:

I was having a hard time dealing with the air box. I can't find my tools. I wasn't able to finish it last week.
... but I didn't need any tools at all.

YouTube Videos

See the links below for some YouTube videos which show how the fasteners work. (eg. the engine cover rivets) The video was taken using the rivets from my wife's Lexus IS350, but I'm sure it's similar on different years and models (eg. the IS250)

The first video shows how to put the rivet back into the installable mode by popping out the button again. And the second video shows an example of installing the rivet once it's popped out and in the installable mode.
