Default My 2001 IS300

Hey guys, i've been a member on here for awhile now and never really introduce my self or my vehicle. I have a Blue 2001 Lexus IS300, i purchased the car about 1 1/2 - 2 years ago and so far i love it and treat it as my baby. Iam located in Cedar Rapids/ Iowa City so some of you might have seen me around but lets go to the pics now!!

So i got the car completely stock from the dealer and it was CLEAN!!


Sorry for the blur of the pics, my camera wasn't really good back then.

So i got the car in October and winter was coming up so i didn't really wanna do stuff to my car just yet so i let it sit in my garage through winter. Oh yeah, having a job didn't really help me either!! haha

Okay so Spring 2010 is here now and i have many ideas what i want to do with my car. I first purchase for my car is tint, 30% fronts and 15% in the rears. I got some Window Visors as well.




A couple months past and i HATED the wheel gap between my tire and fender so i got some TANABE GF210, I hate not being low!


Here's a Snap Shot of my car right after i got done putting the springs on, Hasn't settled in just yet.

Here's a pic of my car a couple weeks later in front my Parents Store in Cedar Rapids!


After doing my springs, i was on a mad search for some RIMS!! Got me a set on here JDMCITY for a good price and i didn't really knew what i was buying, since these were my first set i have ever bought. It turn out to be a great set of 5Zign ZR+520 17x8 and 17x9.I really like how the stance look and was lucky it turn out to look like how it does now.





By the time i got my rims and springs, it was already October. I had this car for a year! and it really didn't seem like it, so like before, Winter was coming up and it went into storage.

So now winter passed and iam able to drive my car, Spring 2011. I really didn't know what i wanted next for my car so i was just saving up money to buy what comes up that i can get for a really good price. My cousin also has a White IS300 and offered me his SRT INTAKE for a good price, so i couldn't passed up the deal!

Hated how things didn't match so i painted it black!! I know i have red Cupplings and my car is blue, it's what the intake came with and iam to lazy to look for new ones! :)


Oh yeah i got a Indash Double Din Touch Screen too!!


Not to long buying the intake, i was in the market of buying a lip, i need a change to my appearance so i bought a FRP REP GREDDY LIP. The fitment and everything on it was great and glad i purchased it!
Here's a test fitment

I didn't like how it look with the front license plate and i didn't like the chrome trimming around the grill so i painted the grill all black besides the Lexus Emblem and took off the license plate.


Painted my lip and here's my car at a car meet i had in Cedar Rapids, not to long ago.





This is how my car currently sits and i love how it looks and drives!! I hope you guys enjoy my write up and my journey with me so please let me know what you guys think!! Thanks alot
