You're going to either have to buy just the IS from the dealership.....OR give them your chrome IS and have them send it off to be done an exact match of the black pearl. There is no way you can match it with spray paint, etc....

Someone on here had the dealership "black pearl" his chrome Altezza badge for $20.

you'll probably have to buy the "IS 300" piece in BP. i dont think the dealer will sell just the "IS" part and matching the color with paint is going to pretty tough.

Buy the original Black Pearl badging for the IS. That is the only way to get it done right.

How difficult is it to replace the front/rear badges with black pearl replacements? Can you do the fishing line/dental floss thing on the grille emblem, too? How do you reattach the new emblems? Thanks.

The L emblem on the grill is very easy to take off. You can use dental floss to take most of it off, then it is held on with just 2 tabs/stubs.

Someone here said he got his Altezza badge painted black pearl for $20 at his dealership......I saw it myself at the last meet, I just forgot his username.

Call Carson Toyota and ask how much for the IS 300 in BP.....1.800.90.TOYOTA....goodluck.
