hi just got me an is200 in grey today said i would join , prevous owner said it was a sport but did a bit of research before buying and found out it wasnt has all the badges but no lsd

anyway im from cork in ireland and joined mainly to get help/info on doing a conversion

i had 2 altezzas before one was 2,2 turbo but never really got it going the way i would liked too so sold it for parts , you can pick up is200 for real cheap over here now so i said why not

not sure whats classed as an extra in them but it has semi leather heated seats both electric ,very good stereo system and speakers id imagine an upgrade , different lexus alloys ,sunroof,silver door cills and a little spoiler will get a few pics tomorrow

plans are to keep the outside as standard as possible im am looking for a front and rear lip and set of skirts if anyone can point me in right direction ???

as for conversion i am unsure will i tackle it myself or bring it to someone , so far i have seen

>rb 25



>1/2 jz

any idea which one is the best route to go down cost wise and the least hassle ??

Hi and welcome to LOC :

Your best bet is to try eBay and the like for bumpers and skirts. Lots of IS200's that had the factory fitted styling kits are being broken now. With a bit of luck you'll find one in your colour. Their always popping up :)

As the the engine conversion... Can't help sorry :(

not being funny but why didn't you look for a IS300 which has the 2jz engine as standard. You wouldn't need a conversion then and you could spend all the money you were going to spend on a conversion up rating the 2jz with turbos or superchargers etc..

Anyway enjoy your 200 and get those pics up :)

An is300 is extremely rare in ireland and plus tax is about 1700 euro a year opposed to 700 for the is200

I have a few months before conversion so ill do a lot of research and talk to people who did it before before i choose which way i go

Should pick up a standard kit fairly easy im checking everyday for one close to avoid stupid shipping fees
