:offtopic: sorry but why is this in the "Altezza" section???

Lextasy don't ship to the uk as far as i know but TDi are supposed to be able to get what you need from them....

L-tuned are another...

Most of the USA stuff is for the IS300, there are some differences depending on what you're looking for...

Depends what parts you are after. Remember the US IS300 is RHD plus they also have additional safety related features that EU spec vehicles don't.

Don't touch Lextasy with a 10 foot pole..... :blink:

You best bet is L-tuned parts. Expensive, but the genuine article.

IS300 lowering springs when fitted to an IS200 will give a firmer ride due to the higher compression rating for the heavier car. But they'll fit alright.

Careful with spoilers & bodykit parts, some will fit the EU spec IS200, others won't.

There's a whole bunch of them post up on US eBay.......just look out for the well known brands - Tein, Eibach, P.I., Whiteline, Spax etc. Watch out for rip-off shipping prices though.

These Tein springs are top quality, even with the $200 shipping :blink: . I've bought stuff from this guy before:

I have used www.lexus-parts.com and www.l-tunedparts.com

Both are really good on prices, best if you call them on the phone to check prices and stock. I just managed to get L-tuned silencers for 140 quid!

whats so great about parts from the USA :blink: why do you not buy from the UK at least you know they will fit then, and if they don't you have more chance of getting something done about it if the parts don't fit

have you tried ask members on here if they have any springs and a spoiler

or does it have to be new

Nope, they don't have IS200s in the US, just the 300.

Well, the main reason ppl buy parts from Japan or USA is that they are usually cheaper, and you have a wider range of stuff to choose from.

would explain why you could only buy IS300 springs as they don't have the 200

so does mAtRiXrIpOfF want IS300 lower springs or just lowering springs (get my drift)

I refer you to my earlier post.......due to the heavier weight of the IS300, the springs have a higher compression factor, therefore fitting these to an IS200 will give a firmer ride

where both making different point's Mike, I have no problem in what you've said it makes perfect sense,

all I'm saying is do they have to be IS300 lowering springs which would be much easier to get in the USA, as you said "they're gonna be a rare as rocking horse pooh in the UK"

or can they be any lowering spring for IS200

like I said earlier

" have you tried ask members on here if they have any springs and a spoiler

    • 10 years of Lexus design: from spindle grille to spindle body
      After 10 years as a defining style feature of every new Lexus model, the famous spindle grille is undergoing a transformation. In tune with a new era of electrified vehicles, the distinctive shape is evolving into a new “spindle body,” as seen on the upcoming new generation Lexus RX SUV and the all-electric RZ.

      The spindle grille has been an unmistakeable Lexus feature since it was first revealed on the LF-Gh concept model of 2011, the basis for the fourth generation GS executive saloon that was launched the following year. Since then, it has been constantly adapted to suit the character of each successive Lexus model, with different mesh patterns, dimensions and finishes.


      Speaking at the time of the grille’s debut, the then Head of Lexus Kiyotake Ise said: “You should be able to identify a car as a Lexus immediately… Instant visual recognition, for example, is the reason behind our spindle grille. It may look aggressive at first glance, that’s intentional, but it also conveys its boldness with sophistication and elegance.”


      It has progressed to become a hallmark expression of Lexus’s L-finesse design, adopted not only for road-going cars, but also incorporated in the futuristic Skyjet spacecraft created for the Lexus-supported movie Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets and adopted as a design motif in the Loft, the award-winning Lexus and Brussels Airlines lounge at Brussels Airport.


      Today, the original grille concept is the starting point for a more radical application of the spindle shape in which it becomes an integral part of the vehicle’s overall design. This “spindle body” approach is part of the Lexus Next Chapter design for the all-new RX, where the grille is reinterpreted as a seamless unit that flows into the bodywork. The lower section retains a mesh pattern, while the upper section takes in the lower edge of the bonnet; the Lexus emblems sits at the centre of the spindle’s high pinch-point.


      The same concept has been applied to the RZ 450e. As a battery electric vehicle, this requires less cooling than a car with a conventional engine, so the grille has been dispensed with, giving the designers greater freedom. Nonetheless, the spindle shape remains prominent in a central front panel, finished in the car’s body colour. Its impact is heightened by the adjacent frontal areas being contrast-finished in black, the low bonnet line and more boldly shaped front wings.

      On both models, the spindle generates lines that flow back from the front of the car through the bonnet and headlamp units to create a strong and distinctive frontal appearance, reinforcing the brand-defining ambitions of the original concept.
