I can't comment on that, but I will be doing more research on them before I take the plunge! 

Have you swapped out the interior standard bulbs for LED's yet? 

Wise move! 

No not swapped any bulbs yet, not sure what bulbs I’d need. Have you done it?

Yep, as well as the puddle lights, easy to do, have also put the vland rear LED lights in as well!

Don’t suppose you have a list of what bulbs I’d need do you?

Cheers for that, that can be my next thing after I’ve sprayed my spoiler 

No problem! Lucky enough to have a spoiler already fitted on mine! 😁

So just been out and swapped all the interior bulbs for leds

Got a new replacement pollen filter in the post so went out to change it.
The old one was out in the wrong way and was filthy! Airflow is a lot better through the vents now!

After that I made the shed into a little spray booth ready to start painting the spoiler, got the paint mixed up this morning so I’m all ready to go

Is no one going to say that car's finger lickin' good? Really? No one?

Looking good Matt. Have to say red does suit the IS250 :thumbsup: 

And that filter!

Also ordered some of these the other week and they showed up today,

i was expecting not to really like them but they are going to look really good once colour coded.
I wanted an sr splitter as I liked the wider sides and didn’t really like any of the aftermarket ones so thought I’d get these for £10
they give it the same look as the sr type so I’m happy!

Cracking on with the painting today! Got the spoiler finished, just needs polishing up then fitting.
Also started on the corner splitters for the bumper

Your car is really coming along, looks fantastic. I'm not normally a fan of the carbon fibre wrap but it works really well in your car. Although if it were mine I'd have to change that reg plate - I'd be having the urge to get chicken every time I got in it!

Car looks really good! The spoiler makes a world of difference, thinking of getting the windows tinted before I fit wind deflectors, will be interesting to see what the bumper corner splitters look like once you have them fitted.

Thanks mate, I'm loving owning it, I fancy a private rev but that will have to wait a bit

I didn't think it should make such a difference to the rear, but it really does. Can't wait to get it polished and fitted properly.

I need to get my Windows tinted as well at some point

Here’s what the splitters look like kind of fitted, they’ll be more flush to the bumper on the sides once I remover those flap things underneath
