In my 5+ years of searching for the complete L-Tuned package I came across a lot of information from the web, dealers, and some great people.

Here's everything you need to know about the discontinued L-Tuned line including original installation documents, US Trademark and Patents, brochure, TRD part numbers.



In August of 2001, Lexus launched a limited edition version of the IS300 called L-Tuned. Most of these cars were assembled at the dealer, however some were assembled at the port where they landed in the states; the only distinction being a sticker on the front windshield. These new L-Tuned versions came in two packages, a Stage I and Stage II which were comprised of various performance and cosmetic upgrades.

These upgrades included:

* L-Tuned Body Kit (Front Bumper with Fogs, Side Skirts, Rear Valence)
* L-Tuned Grille (TRD/Altezza Grille with L-Tuned Exterior badge)
* L-Tuned Spoiler (TRD)
* L-Tuned Springs (Rebranded Eibach Pro Kits)
* L-Tuned Sways (Rebranded Eibach Sway Bars)
* L-Tuned Exhaust (TRD)
* L-Tuned 18" wheels (Rebranded Rays Versus Campionato 225/40/18)
* L-Tuned Badges (3 Exterior, 1 Grille, 1 Interior Dash Badge)
* L-Tuned Floor Mats

The Original L-Tuned Packages were only available on Black Onyx, GGP and MSM.

Shortly after its release, the L-Tuned brand, a division of TRD was discontinued in 2003. Today, the L-Tuned brand is one of the rarest packages available for the IS300.

Here are two pieces that were only placed on dealer installed L-Tuned Packages

The "Port of Call" Sticker


The L-Tuned Tire Information Sticker


The L-Tuned Exhaust Information Sheet


The L-Tuned TRD Front Lip for USDM bumpers








Genuine L-Tuned Stamp on the inside of all L-Tuned bodykit parts (IS Series)


The L-Tuned sideskirt for the GS had a slightly different L-Tuned stamp



Here's what a complete set of Exterior L-Tuned badges looks like. Comes with 3 badges, 2 mounting templates, instructions.


L-Tuned Exterior Badge set for the GS300/400 (Australia) - Note the rear emblem in this set does NOT come embossed which makes it distinctly different than the USDM emblems


L-Tuned Interior Emblem for the IS300

A truly remarkable post.

Even thought that's a GS sticker, I assume it was probably the same for the IS.

Thanks Happy.

Hey Chigger! Long time!
Yeah, I figured there's no sense in keeping this stuff to myself. The most interesting thing I ran across was that US Patent Application...lots of background in there.

Hey Digger,
My thoughts are the same... Just like the "Port of Call" Sticker; this one was probably the same thing.


"NEW" Fact
The Original L-Tuned Packages were only available on Black Onyx, GGP and MSM

wow I couldn't have said it any better myself Happy!!

I think you should include the L-Tuned badging template pdf...cause otherwise people will be putting their exterior L-Tuned badges in the wrong places cough cough Roswell cough cough

also, I have a friend that has an authentic L-Tuned IS300 and his sun visors have a L-Tuned badge on them! I was wondering if they were authentic (came installed from the dealer) or was it an aftermarket creation from somewhere else?

anyone seen this before?

Yeah, I wanted to be different from others about the L-tuned emblems. I installed my rear under the rear right fog light to keep the debadge trunk clean. And the sides emblems are on my side quarter windows, I didn't want any on my front fenders 'cuz black emblems would stick out too much on a white car... just my preference... hehehe!
