Hey! My first Lexus

I'm new to the world of trickin' my ride but I had a go anyway. 2008 Sport Luxury, Pearl White, WALD Executive ground effects kit plus upper and lower billet grille. Inside white LED lights. Australia has strict rules about ground clearance so I won't be lowering it. I like the softer ride anyway as my average speed around Sydney streets is 38kph. I have bypassed the DVD/GPS/Bluetooth rolling restrictions.

Is that enough ?

Yeah, the WALD kit is Japanese but imported from Jonari.com in the USA. I am looking for wheels now but can't decide whether polished or chrome.

WHITE RIMS, I hadn't even thought about that colour. Too wrapped up in chrome and metal colours.

My minds eye says it will work, thanks, I am going out to explore the world of white wheels !!

i'm loving it, white rims on that car would look sick as hell!

Hey, I always watch the US sites as some really wild ideas, and pics, get shared. Almost everything I have bought for my cars has come from the US. Most of the "DYI" stuff I have got from the US as well.

The Aussies sites don't carry a lot of traffic on IS250's. I think there's room for both sites. I wouldn't have my interior LED's, WALD ground effects kit and Billet Grille if I hadn't visited My.IS

Everyone, keep sending in your ideas, more people are watching, reading and reacting to your posts than you might think.......

Sorry for the late reply Jomster, I see lots of IS250's on the road in Sydney but they don't have the same following as in the USA. I have got most of my ideas and parts from this site and US Ebay. Tonite I picked up 1watt white LED's for the mirror down-lights, can't wait to get them in once I figure out how to get the old globes out !!

Danny,
I will post some more photos, the first ones focused more on the car and less on my mods/additions. I have done a few more things since.
