A long time customer brought his beautiful Lexus IS-F back to the shop for a few more upgrades. We had done some previous work including a one off custom carbon fiber aero kit. His car was already looking nice but he was interested in getting rid of his stock wheels and we had a nice set in stock that he really loved. Check out some pictures of his ride before we installed any of the newest upgrades.
We started first with taking the old wheels off the car. We were installing some Tein S Tech Lowering Springs to drop the car very slightly to get rid of all the stock wheel gap. Tein makes a great quality product, and for the price you absolutely cannot beat them. Out with the old springs and in with the new!
After we finished installing the lowering springs we transferred over all the TPMS from the factory wheels to the RAYS Gram Lights 57Getter’s we were putting on. The new wheels had been custom painted Bronze to really make them stand out. The Gram Light line from RaysEngineering are classic wheel styles with a futuristic flare. Not only do the wheels look awesome they are super light weight. Before installing the wheels we refinished the factory brake calipers with our Caliper Magic process. The customer wanted the calipers blue to match the F Sport logos that come on the vehicle. This vehicle comes with Brembo Brakes from the factory, so we highlighted that by stenciling the Brembo logo onto the caliper and clear coating to prevent damage. Check out the finished product!
We finished the suspension, the wheels and tires, the brake calipers, but one we had one more request from the customer. He wanted some extra fog lights added to the front of the vehicle, but he didn’t want something that would just bolt up to the bumper or look out of place. We custom mounted a set of PIAA fogs lights recessed into the front grille of the car so they would look almost factory, check out the results.
And we were done! One more happy customer back on the mean streets of South Florida. This is one of the nicest looking IS-F’s you will see around. The combination of lowering springs and a slightly more aggressive aftermarket wheel in the correct size and offset leave this vehicle looking proper! Let us know what you think!
