Nice to see 1 of these get fettled with, good list of things done too.

What kind of power will the mapping see?

Thanks 🙂 Would be great to see 300-320whp (stock water intercooler is too small for better results) and 450Nm (torque should be limited to 450Nm as this is safe value for AT)

Looks smart mate, some days I wish I waited bit longer to get a 200t spec but very rare ! How much did the exhaust set up back ? (not even sure if it's compatible with the 300h - I have changed the rear diffuser to a IS250 one and custom exhaust tips but want to get exhaust later the year) and what is the front centre console leather trim ? If it's the arm rest that's already leather ?? Thanks!!

Thanks mate. The 300h isn’t so bad, fuel economy is much better in your car 🙂 

Invidia Q300h is compatible with 200t/250/350 but I’ve seen some garage offering custom steinless steel exhaust built for about £500 (my Invidia rear mufflers were £620 including tax and fees, Invidia midpipe is £590).

Center console leather trim you can see below (these pieces were plastic in my car):

For a bit sound improvement you can go for custom rear mufflers, you could choose the loudness and other sound parameters.

I’ve got these leather pieces on EBay for £70 including shipping and tax (from USA), they were described as “Lexus IS250 2014 front center console leather trim”. There were two different types: with white or red threads (red probably for f-sport trim or just for red interior)

They are pretty easy to change, 30s for both (no screws/bolts, just plastic clips holdings them). Prob these ones were offered for F-Sport spec only (but not sure)

Did see few on eBay and some don't post to UK, grrrrr and ones that do are either the plastic ones or red stitching, further investigating these are standard on the higher spec IS in the UK.
