Got my 03 GGP IS300 IN 2007, back then I didn't know crap about cars. Didn't even know what a Lexus was... :jawDrop: Ever since I held the keys to this car it's been through hell and back. 2 accidents, shopping cart crash, had a friend run into my car by accident and dented the rear bumper.. it was complete shit basically.



After a year of owning the car, one of my friends got me into the car scene and then I just started buying useless shit for my car. MRR GT1 18' Rims, VIS Carbon Fiber Hood, Altezza Window Visors, Tanabe Rear Strut Bar, Altezza grille. Went to a couple of car meets and got dick slapped with inspiration by Billy Shea's IS300 and some of the old school members on the forum.






So, I got a Wald lip dropped my car on Bilstein shocks and Tanabe NF springs.
Yeah.. I thought I was the shit...




After driving around for a month being this low, I completely trashed my front lip and bumper. Saw that some asshole name Sang was selling a replica cwest bumper and just bought it. Also decided to get new wheels and suspension Enkei RPF1's 18 x 8.5 +30 and 18 x 9.5 +40 and Stance GR+






Finally dropped the ball and put in money for a a whole kit and had my car in the shop for a month to get all the imperfections fixed.









This is where my lip went...


Also got a little video my friend made after hella flush 5.

thanks! Saw your car at hella flush. Freaking love it!

Nope, when i lowered it on springs had to flare my fenders so my wheels would fit. Looked like shit. Got new fenders from Emerson, considering going to his house and steal his vertex fenders, but he would probably shoot me..

Wow, the last time I saw this car was when it barely had it's wald lip and some rims. Now it's pure sex.
Thanks, still have that hood you sold me.

who redid your hood? was it the same ppl that did el b3bo's hood? Car is looking great by the way. How are you liking the Stance? I'm considering getting a set of those coils. Def getting some coils very soon to replace my prokit/bilstein setup.

A shop in Westminster called JCL, not the same shop that did Trinidad's hood. Stance coilovers are great for the money, but I kinda want a stiffer ride. So I'll probably get some custom springs to switch in.

Yeah, for sure we just need someone with a good camera.

Good work my friend you progressed from doche to legit ...+rep
Thanks!

Very Nice! The wheels fit your car perfectly.
Thanks, currently looking for a new set of wheels...

nice car.

did you crack your driver side fender?
Thanks, I haven't cracked it yet.. It's rubbing like crazy in the front for some reason with my fenders rolled flat. Going to raise it a little for clearance until I figure out what to do.
