First on my list? LOL a few things as I have had almost a year to think about it HA. I just got the tracking info for my SRT intake so it should be there a few days before I return. I also bought alpine type r 6.5's for the front and type r 6x9's for the rear, a 6 channel monster rca cable and a JL HD 5ch 900w amp and I will be using a single pioneer premier 12 for the time being. I also bought some IMO nice looking carbon fiber tail lights. The stereo will be the only thing I plan on having someone else do for me as I just want it done like the day I get back so I have some nice sound asap! :)

Nice, have you thought about sound deadening? This will definitely bring out the sound system to the max.

For sure bro. I am actually going to help a buddy of mine do his as well. It would be sometime late winter, early spring. We can all meet up and paint some headlights. lol :)

What look do you want?

Gloss, matte, or satin black?

Chrome rings?

Tinted turn signals or leave em alone?

I did however discover rusted rotors....so I picked up some new ones along with new pads. Also got the oil changed...royal purple ;) this weekend....my bank account hates me, but my car loves me! Oh yeah how could I forget...taillights look good too

just joined, ive got an 07 is250 black with stock chrome wheels and tinted out lights and HID fogs.

If anyone is interested I just bought a complete set of 25mm spacers for the rear and 20mm for the front which are perfect fit for a Is250 or 350 stock wheel fitment. They're literally brand new, i just decided to go a different route. They're hubcentric with pressed studs. Id sell them local for $135 for the complete set!

Im in federal way btw and lookin forward to meets and whatever else! I love the Lexus!
