Hello everyone,

Due to many life circumstances with health, finances and etc. I am considering selling my 2004 Lexus IS300. She has been with me since ONE mile on the odometer. It was originally purchased at Longo Lexus in El Monte, California.

Total vehicle mileage is 52,000. There has been NO body work, NO accidents, NO warranty issues except for a bad starter and faulty CD player.

Car has FACTORY EXTENDED WARRANTY UNTIL 90,000 MILES or 2011.

Car is going to be sold AS IS!! NOTHING WILL BE PARTED OUT and it is completely out of the question. The car is heavily and meticulously modified and every bolt turned on this car has been done so with the utmost care.

ORIGINAL equipment that came with car:
-Full Black Leather Interior
-Rear Trunk Spoiler
-Moonroof, Memory Seats and so on. Car has everything but navigation.

Now for the modifications....

Engine Modifications:
-Complete 2JZ-GTE JDM Supra (not aristo) Swap

-NGK BKR7E Spark Plugs

--800 CC Precision Injectors
--Aeromotive Fuel Press Regulator

-No WHEELHOP

Interior:
-TRD Triple Gauge Pod
-Greddy, Boost, Oil Press & EGT Gauges, perfectly match stock interior lighting.
-AEM 6in1 UEGO wideband custom mounted in ash tray for clean concealement.
-S2000 Engine Start Button.
-Altezza Two-Tone Steering wheel
-Greddy Weighted Chrome shiftknob for the stock clean look.
-MRF Fabrications Short shift system.

Exterior:
-AUTHENTIC Ltuned Front bumper with Ltuned Fog Lights.
-TRD CF grill
-Tuned Parts JDM Black Headlights
-Authentic Ltuned Rear Lip
-Authentic PIAA Super Rossa wheels. 19x9 rear with 19x8 front in the PIAA Super silver finish. (RARE finish) Include Mcgard lugnuts and PIAA Aluminum hubcentric rings and centercaps.

Well, that pretty much covers most of it. I may have missed a few minor things here and there. But for the most part, the car has a brand new transmission (W58) A brand new Exedy/Daikin clutch, brand new brakes, tires have about 65% EVENLY worn tread remaining.

The interior of the car is pretty much flawless and has no defects or damage. Its not covered up in greasy dash treatments and has the stock flat/semi-gloss clean finish. The leather has been conditioned every 4 months and is supple and soft with minimal wrinkles. The backseats look like nobody has ever sat in them.

The exterior of the car is extremely clean and most of you here know how anal and meticulous I have been with my paint.

Like I mentioned in the beginning of this post, life has been tough with health, finances and some other factors that are contributing to this impulse decision. I do not want to sell this car by any means, but sometimes a person has to cut some losses short.

My asking price for this car is $29,900 dollars out the door.

Here are a couple pictures, but I am pretty sure you all know what she looks like already..





































Thank you for looking.

i see no reason why this car shouldn't sell very fast.

1. the engine is in top condition, this swap is costly.
2. rims look great and aren't made anymore
3. Headlights look sick :)
4. Paint looks great, from what I hear, Malek is a prissy when it comes to keeping the car clean :)

Good luck bro, call me if u need anything.

i think this is one the baddest out there and one of the least talked about. it deserves much more recognition then it gets.

good luck with the sale and hope everything works out for whatever the reasons are for selling

Having seen this car in person many times and ridden in it w/ Malek I can vouch for the quality of the installation and the overall condition of the car. It is flawless.

Malek - sad to see it go, but I hope selling it helps you out.

sweet car.. sad to see it go... but any reason the tails are chrome?
Tails are the stock 2004 tail lights that came on the car. I dont like tail lights that have been taken apart as ive had a couple sets and it doesnt look good around the edges. Plus the stock tails match the dark chrome license plate frame and the dark chrome emblem.
