Style Kits


Recommended Posts

I just placed my order this afternoon! :P:P:P

I have decided to go for the IS200 Sport, with styling kit, in strathcaron blue and black leather.

I was going to have an SE but after seeing this baby in Lexus Sheffield's showroom last week, I just had to have it!

Here are two pics of the IS (300) with the styling kit.

Its not been available as a factory fitted option for long though has it? Being factory fitted has a big advantage for me - insurance. It does not make the car modified so I can get away with £1200 insurance instead of £2000 if I mod it

AndyHart21 , thanks for the photos of the new kit. I currently have a 2000 W IS200 SE in Sapphire with full TRD Kit but have just ordered a new 200 Sport with the new Styling Kit and 18"Wheels. I was starting to have 2nd thoughts but after seeing your photos I can't wait now. I managed to get a Plat Ice one from Stock so it arrives next week, only a 2 week wait from Lexus Aberdeen !

PS : My first post as a club virgin, great site !

I'm thinking of putting TRD Side Skirts onto the new car when it arrives with the new Sport Styling Kit. Lexus Aberdeen think another £500 will cover it. Does anyone think the car needs it ( see Andys photos), I would appreciate anyones thoughts on this. I just think it seems to be lacking something from the side view. I've been advised that TTE don't do side skirts as part of this kit.

I have been and ordered some sideskirts this morning from Lexus Sheffield and I cannot understand why they have charged me a diffferent price to Stitcher. I think Stitcher said the side skirts cost him over £500 fitted and painted, but mine only cost £432 all-in. Could this be down to different Lexus dealers using different bodyshops?

The lex should be looking cool for JAE now! :cool::cool::cool:

Stitcher is up here inAberdeenshire, Aberdeeen is an expensive city and the hourly rate is considerably high, the body shop they use specialise in Lexus, Porche and Mercedes and charge even more!!

Just read your post Andy and Graemes reply. As the TRD kit is dealer fitted I wonder what the price difference is for the whole kit. I'm sure Lexus Aberdeen said I would have been £2000 for the TRD kit fitted and sprayed if I had opted for it. Obviously this would be much less if fitted down South.

It's really annoying, price differences aren't just for the TRD kit, they apply to other things too. Lexus Stockport said £350 (inc. vat and fitting) for 4 reverse parking sensors, Lexus Guildford said £500 (inc. vat and fitting).... I just don't understand it

    • 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.
