Both the front and back bumpers are longer in the USA from what I remember due to different crash bar regulations etc.

Marcus on here did all the work himself to get the Vizage kit to fit - it's possible, just difficult as I'm sure he'll tell you - he put a lot of work into that!

Side skirts are the same though, not that it's much consolation!

the guy who i got the bodykit from is trying to say the front bumper is slightly different but i dont think-so but all the bodykit panels are too long

Rod Checked some sites & from what I can find the IS300 is as follows:

External dimensions: overall length (mm): 4,486, overall width (mm): 1,725, overall height (mm): 1,410, wheelbase (mm): 2,670, front track (mm): 1,496, rear track (mm): 1,486 and curb to curb turning circle (mm): 10,394

And the IS 200 is

Length 4400 mm

Width 1725 mm

Height *1420 mm

Wheel base 2670 mm

So it would look like the IS is longer overall. Hope this helps.....bummer :angry:

O thanks for that Bobby it looks like the spec sheets on here from lexus are all wrong as it shows them as being identicle maybe these should get changed so no one else gets it wrong thanks anyway mate

Thanks for that Aido it looks like it could be an american kit thats found its way here.The bodyshop said they could chop it to fit but i paid good money for the kit and dont really want to pay loads more for fitting and the guy said he will take it back and give me a full refund so i guess i will look for another possibly a plastic one as im scared of this fibre glass chipping with me having the granite sky and being left with loads of white stone chips

I have done a few more mods and have not had my camera out so i got it out today.

1.HiD Kit fitted i opted for the 6000 for the dipped lights but have also ordered for the full beam aswell.

2.Chrystal side light bulbs. I could see the yellow of the standard side light bulbs so these had to get changed too.

3.Induction Kit(thanks to Jay)

4.Painted engine covers in gloss black but will need to do this again at some point as they reacted(didnt clean them well enough) :angry:

Bobby it sounds great i cant keep my foot off the the go-go pedal and it makes a nice noise when you do a quick gear change and let cluth out quick(im like a 17 year old i know)Fitted the kit myself it took less than 10 mins to fit the hardest part being getting the bulb into passenger side as the washer bottle is in the way but i got it.The only costs are the kit + i recommend to get the side light bulbs i think they were less than a fiver.Sorted.

next thing i want is .................................YOUR CHARGER :P

I knew there was something else but couldn't remember till now!!!

I finally got my springs fitted but i wont take any pics for a few weeks to let it settle.The back is sitting perfect but because the front springs are stiffer they always take a few weeks to settle so im hoping it drops down another 15mm.I fitted teins with a 35mm drop on the front and a 23mm on the rear.

Someone told me on here that it takes 5 hrs labout to get springs done i did mine on my mates ramp in 3 hrs 15 mins so it looks like garages are taking the p1ss.Anyone else had springs fitted by a garage who have charged 5 hours

My suspension was bouncy since putting in new springs but yesterday it felt a lot firmer i guess its just with it dropping all the time.I am getting really bad shaking at 50mph would i be best to leave it a few more days before i get the geometry done?

When i let out clutch slowly without throttle my engine just stalled and the response was lumpy.

Fitted my iridiums today and hey presto! its like driving a new car.

The old plugs were also the iridiums but when i looked at the tips on the bottom they were burned away slightly i will get pics of the new and old to let you compare the difference in them.
