I got sick of waiting for someone to manufacture some IS300.net license plate frames so I ordered some Lexus chrome frames from a site on the internet.

They are really well made. Heavy chrome with a thick anti-glare plexiglass plate for protection. Here are some picts I took with a digital camera:

Let me know what you think. Anyone else have any good frames????

I just brought the same frames for my silver IS tooo. Only difference is I used the cut out frame in the front. Did you have a hard time fitting it over the front plate holder? I had to clip the corners to it would fit flush.

Here is where I got them from:

They were not cheap but the quality is amazing. The thing I like about them is the fact that they are made of heavy chrome plated brass and the chrome "Lexus" letters stick out in a 3D way. Its kinda funny how many nice cars you see on the road with really ugly looking license plates/frames. I think it spoils the whole look of the car when you have a rusty old plate on the back. Its even worse when you have a ugly faded plastic frame with dealer advertising on it. I couldn't find nice frames at any of my local stores so I just ordered them and had them shipped. Canadian customs burned me for some extra taxes...but they look good.

What do you wash your car with? Looks sweet. Much better than my Silver.

I usually wash my car by hand with car wash soap. The car looks good cause I just waxed it. There appears to be much discussion over which wax is the best. My friends all use Zymol on their IS300s but I use a less obscure wax called "Liquid Glass". Makes the paint extremely slippery and isn't too difficult to apply.

FYI: There is a IS 300 frame available. I think they run around $40 or so but they are chrome and say IS 300 in black. Very nice in my opinion, guess that is why I bought one.
