I love Lexus IS200/300!

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!

Please forgive me if these questions have been asked hundreds of times, but i only just stumbled accross the teamlexus site and thought i would post my first message.

I want to buy a Lexus IS300, but only if the TTE Supercharger can be fitted to it, if not then maybe i will get the IS200 instead.

I would appreciate any websites or links to where the supercharger can be fitted - price even!, also if anyone knows of any UK located parts companies who do exhausts, lower springs, and all body and performance parts.

If not UK companies, then maybe links or recommendations to companies who ship to the UK and are known to be reliable.

Im 22, and have had a Celica since i was 17 (bought it new). Ive evnjoyed modifying it slowly over the last five years, have thousands of pounds of sound and entertainment system in there, league alloys, etc - but im new to Lexus and want to buy an IS200 or 300 (not sportscross) so would love any information passed my way.

Many thanks everyone!

By the way: respect to superchargedIS200 (Mat, i believe?!)

Your IS looks and sounds off tha hook!

the TTE supercharger that is fitted to the IS200 is not a direct fit on the is300,

There are 2 main outlets for the supercharger,1 being TTE in Germany,this is where i got mine fitted and the second is TDI in london,at the moment they are doing a deal for Team Lexus members getting the suprcharger £900 cheaper at £3000

Thanks for your reply superchargedIS200. Your information has been useful. But since you already have the supercharger, in your opinion, is it better to have the IS200 with supercharger or an IS300 standard?! I mean im guessing its the IS200 with supercharger, simply because of that engine sound!

I will be spending alot of time on my Lexus when its delivered and even going to get 20" alloys on it, no matter how much work is involved! but... if i fail then i guess 19"s will do!

Keep up the Lexus modifications lads!

you can get 20" on an is200,however you wont be able to drive the thing or get tires..........

the is300 is rated at 215 bhp as standered but there is NO tuning parts available in europe,all the big power upgrades are US market only

the is200 supercharged is rated at 205/220 depending on mods........

    • 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.
