Hello folks,

just looking at adding a few subtle mods to my IS200 sport now business picked back up again have a few extra spends,

would like to know where I can get my hands on a legana front bumper with fogs etc, found copies etc but travelled to a company south of the border in Ireland to see them but theyre copies were poor, so waste of 250mile round trip :( ah well,

also how easy is it to DIY your lights into blackened jdm reps? and can you get replacement lenses for the headlights as i have a few stone chips in mine would like them looking perfect or have to buy new items?

any help much appreciated

cheers

i have the hks on my is300, it gives a nice beep note without it being intrusive for a daily driver. my induction kit makes alot more noise, its a good set up as far as im concerned. next to no noise when cruising, a bit of a raspy note when accelerating and and almost track car-esk note when you bury your foot.

im not sure about the blitz exhaust, but the hks is a strait thru cat back system and did make a difference to the way the car drives. better throttle response with a touch more power.

DIYing the headlights is easy- ten minutes removing from car, ten minutes in oven at 90 degrees C pull the lens off and unclip the orange indicator lightly sand grey bit and spray. I did the angel eyes mod at the same time and all in all it took me an hour in the evening, left paint to dry overnight and an hour in the morning to reassemble the light and refit. There is a picture guide to doing this on the forum somewhere (maybe the scandinavian site)

    • 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.
