That could be the worst wing i have ever seen on an IS, and the back of your car says "Lexus Altezza" heh.
On the bright side, the dual exhaust looks very very nice!

to each his own. if you like your car that way, i think u should leave it that way. w ho cares what others say. look at CWest's Altezza, it has almost the same wing..and you guys were diggin it.

I think it's a nice looking car. The body kit isn't too radical.

The dual exhaust is a bit much though.

Definitely too much wing. You know that wing actually creates the necessary down force only at really high speeds. Otherwise, it's just dead weight on the car.

FOR THE DUEL MUFFLER,THERE'S A PLASTIC PIECE UNDER THE LEFT SIDE OF THE REAR BUMBER,JUST TAKE OUT AND THERE'S A SPACE FOR IT. BUT THE REAR RAINFORCEMENT WILL BLOCK MUFFLER,THAT'S WHY MY MUFFLER CAN'T NOT STICK OUT MUCH.

great, you got dual exhaust, but why doesn't it match up with your bumper??? It looks stupid like that; a lot like this civic hack-job that some bodyshop is doing in my town.

If you like it then that's cool.

I personally think the car looks like ****e. Gay spoiler, cheesy body kit (seems too snapped on) and I think the dash kit you have going there looks like junk over the original black dash. Looks like something an 8 year old would do.

And what is up with the Altezza badging? It isn't an Altezza. Looks super cheesy

I can only hope I never see an IS (or any Lexus for that mater) that looks like around here. I don't want to be embarrassed by brand association

I like what you've done with the original Lexus wheels. Very creative.

Yes the Kit look a bit snap on, but everyone has different tastes. If this car makes you happy and proud, then it's a nice car, no matter what ppl say.
Personally I like the DTM wings. But Im not brave enough to add it onto my car. My IS200 is not as fast as ur IS300 so no point in putting the wing on for me (DTM wing conveys image of fast). The trend in Japan for most Altezzas are DTM wing, so what u r doing is not wrong.

As for the ALtezza badge.. who cares? We are all driving a TOYOTA a TOYOTA, Lexus is only a brand name .. we are all driving highly priced TOYOTAS!!!!!!!! So debadge all the Lexus emblem and replace em with Toyota and ALtezza, it'll just look at home.

just my 0.2
