If you had $1000 to blow on your IS, what would you get IF you were like me. By that, I mean, I love my stock IS as it is appearance-wize. Don't want ground effects. Love the stock tires and wheels as they are. Not into the whole import scene, really. Just really dig the car.

So I guess the options are more motor-type stuff.

I also don't want to void my warranty.

So...that limits things doesn't it! hahha

sways and exhaust
I second that. I would recommend the TRD race sways. As for exhaust, since you want to be close to stock, I would look at the L-tuned to Blitz Nur Spec.

I'm looking for TRD race sways and an L-tuned exhaust myself.

OK, I'm REALLY new to this car stuff. I know of TRD but the L-tuned part I don't understand. Sorry.

Oh, also, to make things even trickier, I have to use the dough at Pep Boys. I have a $1000 gift card there. So TRD isn't an option.

Oy.

Unless Pep Boys is able to special order parts for you from aftermarket suppliers, your kinda out of luck. They don't really carry any thing that would be nice for the IS.

$1000 bucks is going to buy A LOT of those glow in the dark washer nozzles....


Order a set of Bridgeston S-03's for your ride...1000 bucks should cover mounting and balancing...

yeah!! i hooked up my brotha's camry for less than $20 there with chrome hubcaps, air fresheners, neon wiper blades and do-it-yourself tint!! :crazy: :crazy:

dude, seriously. just use the gift card to buy the little shit your car may need, ie wax, polish, chamois, leather cleaner, wiper blades, bulbs, etc. leave your car the way it is, you don't need to be spending no gift card at PEP BOYS to hook your car up.
