Just bought myself an '03 IS 300! I'm really excited about doing some work on it. Finally got some pictures of it. So far I've done just a couple little things. New tires, Tinted windows with 20% tint, and got myself a 12" JL W6 with a 500 watt amp to lessen my hearing even more. Looking forward to upgrading my brakes and powder coating my calipers. Also looking forward to a Tein Comfort sport suspension. Tell me what y'all think!

Welcome.

Also, you can do lots of simple, cashless mods on your car. For instance DIY for foglights to come on without lights. Get rid of the DRL(daytime running lights). Many other simple costless things. ;)

Good luck and search a lot.

Congrats on the ride! I'm sure you will enjoy it as much as we do!

Assuming your car is 5 speed, the first mods to do in my opinion would be to remove the CDD(clutch dampening device) and put in a throttle cable spacer. They both cost almost nothing and you will definitely feel the difference they make. Also, a short shifter is a absolute must! After that, the mod bug should be in full effect and thats when the real fun starts!

This site has so much info about anything and everything IS. Enjoy.

Aloha

I wish I could get rid of my front license plate. Looks sooo much sexier without it. Very clean, I like it!
