Hey, thanks for the comments
Dookie, i only got the altezza grill cuz my friend ordered it form his uncle, who works at TRD japan, and i forgot to specify that i wanted the aero one. i like the look of the grill though...it matches my polished rims. So sorry if it offends you. i think that it make the car look more luxurious than the original lexus grill. I got 35% tint cuz i didnt want to get tagged. i got the grill for $180. i am from oahu, so anyone else from there, email me at [email protected] and we should meet or something. Laterz

I think I've seen your car once, by Diamond Head. My friends and I were watching the green flash at sunset. Personally the spoiler looks odd to me, and it's weird that the grille and the back emblems don't match. It's a mix of JDM and USA market. JMHO though. I do like the Altezza grille though.

No, Its not just you. I agree! The rear "TrunkTail" on that IS300 is...well....Cheap Looking. A rear spoiler is one thing, but a Tail? On a Lexus?
Oh well.... different stokes for different folks.

I guess Lexus is happy with the age of people buying this car. But Im sure it hurts some of us Older Owners to see the car out- fitted poorly and cheap.

The car is nice, but then again, I'm bias to the IS. I dont like the tail, it takes a lot away from the car. But hey, its your car and yours to drive, so if you like it, I like it.

Me personally, I would consider investing on a new spoiler.

That grill is nice as all hell. You're right it does make it more luxurious IMO. Anyway you could replace that altezza badge with a lexus emblem?
By the way did you have to drill holes to install that spoiler? looks like you had to.
