Well my old TRD filter has been cleaned a few times but it gets too dirty to clean it seems so I got a new one from Carson Toyota. While I was there I took some pics.

If anybody in the LA area with a IS hasn't been to Carson Toyota, its a cool place to walk in and see some good products, even IS300.net license plates. Not a plug, just a chance to post some pictures. thats what I do.

Grills and a HKS Dragger I think.


Ltuned wheels, the gray ones caught my eye, a possibility when my tires wear out more.


And I left there with a TRD Air Filter and installed it today and I could tell the difference from the stock one I been using lately.

i was there last week and saw the same rims...i wanna say they are 5zigens but it's early and i could be wrong

anyways, i agree with thedon....carson toyota has the goods and if they don't have something you want, they can get it and for a good price

steve and his crew rock!

I dont know what rims are on the bottom in the pic. The other side of the rack had a few 5 zigens. As for the Ltuned rims, I dont know the price now check with Steve Ganz of Carson Toyota, his email addy is [email protected] but I remember they were going for 1600 way back when he first introduced them but still check. Thats a good price along with the Lexus L center caps. Try going to Lexus to get that deal, they will laugh at you.
The Filter was 57 bucks, and I still have the cleaning kit from last time so I didn't buy that.
Also you can see alot of PLP stuff in there. As a matter of fact, that whole wall and area across from the parts windows is a IS300 shrine of parts.

The wheels on the bottom are Anterra wheels. They are very nice, but very pricey. These rims have always been one of my top choices.

More pics..

TRD old vs new. Again I cleaned the old one twice. But it never gets as clean as when its brand spankin new. I might have messed up and oiled it too much even though I was trying to do it light. This time I felt the pre oiled new one and got a feel for how oily it is off the bat.



And here's the other side of the previous picture showing the 5zigens.

I thought they were Anteras also. Close, but not quite

Hey thedon, didn't you get Versus wheels instead of L-Tuned? If so, where'd you get it from and how much?

Yeah but keep in mind they are the same exact wheel. TRD/Lexus obviously went to Versus and said can you make the wheel with a L centercap for our Ltuned edition.
But anyway, mine were 1375 from Discount Tires in El Monty www.wheeloptions.com, compare that to 1600 with the sweet L cap logo (if thats the price now). Thats a good deal because nobody is willing to sell those center caps alone for less than 70 bucks a piece.

That is a good price, did you get hooked up or something? I'm really interested and don't care about the L logo.

No hookup. Thats just the price he quoted me. They have a good selection of wheels so if you are in the area drive over there. If not they can put tires on those and ship them out to ya too. I saw lots of tire/wheel packages going out both times I visited there.

Thats a great price, I'm gonna pop them an email. Do you know if Steve has the L-Sportline kit in stock? I'm in a dilema right now..I have around $2,000 to spend and don't know if I should get the L-Sportline kit or those wheels....
