  1. This kit does make the intake temp cooler when driving.....stationary is the same as stock. did you check the temps while driving along the road? i checked mine before and after fitting the kit here is the results...... outside temp 10deg c CITY DRIVING: Stock 29degC......Prolex 19degC 80MPH DUALCARRIDGEWAY DRIVING: Stock 23-21degC.....Prolex 13-12degC STATIONARY 5MINS IDLE: Stock 29degC.....Prolex 29degC
  2. i have fitted TEIN springs to loads of cars. they always give a good stance and excellent ride quality. they usually settle a little bit lower after a few hundered miles. i wouldnt fit anything else.
  3. I went for the TEIN s-tech springs dunno how lo they are but the car sits nice and still gives a smooth ride. the front wheels rub on the inner arches when cornering hard enough so i guess its low enough LOL! i have 18's aswell....here's a couple of pics
  4. what type of bulb is it guys? I reckon a set of HID's would look cool and they are quite cheap now. Cheers
  5. i also removed the under bonnet sound proofing so you can hear it a bit better. i also cut a piece away from the front rubber seal to lat a bit more cold air to the filter.
  6. Hey, i got my wheel nuts of ebay usa cant remember what make they were but the were expensive...about £120..they are made of a material that doesnt fade/corrode etc. the band on my intake pipe is just a bit of rubber sleeve i fitted to stop the pipe knocking/rattling against the engine as its very close to it. cheers.
  7. Hi there, the Apexi filter i bought came with a 3" bolt on flange...so all i needed was a 3" short piece of silicone hose and 2 jubilee clips to join the Apexi filter with flange to the prolex pipe work....i kept the silicone hose as short as possible so it looks good. it sounds much better than the cheap prolex one that i got and it looks soooo much better! here is a couple of pics of it....sorry for crap quality was with my iphone.
  8. Nah im Noel...my wife drives the lex all the time... this is my car which i just sold........
  9. i think they are dark chrome.... i got a black 53 plate is200 come into my work for sale...so i decided to swap the tail lights with mine! i just bought the headlights brand new from lexus and asked for discount....i got them for 90 odd pounds each...pretty good i reckon! i asked about the black front foglamps...they are £260+vat each!!....fukk that!
  10. Yeah a set of skirts is on my list of things to get..... do the skirts look ok without the rear apron...or do i need that aswell? the wheels are made by inovit or something like that...i got em off ebay for quite good price. i think they are 8x18 or maybe 7.5x18 with et38 offset. i was going to go for black but im happy with the gunmetal as they still shine when clean lol! cheers
  11. Hey Guys, thought it was about time i got some pics of my IS on here.... Sorry for the crappy pics these were taken with my iphone in poor lighting SPEC: 2001 is200 2003 tail lights from a black is200 2004 headlights 6000k HID kit Lexus front splitter Lexus sport front grille 18" gunmetal rims with black lightweigh wheel nuts and Lexus emblems on centre caps Tein lowering springs window tints chrome door handles/boot lid strip/number plate surrounds 4" stainless tail pipe fitted to standard system callipers painted black with chrome Lexus emblems Prolex induction kit...binned the cheap filter that came with it and fitted a Apexi chrome edition filter. TRD gear knobber and i think thats about it....i wanted the car to look good but still be smooth/comfy/quiet and i think i have achieved this. PICS:
  12. Where in the Highlands you from buddy ? Im from Nairn with a Black IS200 on 18" gunmetal rims getting tinted on Friday in Elgin . im in Inverness Dude. B)
  13. Anyone have them fitted to a silver is200? i have a 2001 silver IS200, i also have 18" gunmetal wheels and tinted windows...so i reckon the smoked tail lights would look good...good contrast with the silver paint. i havent seen smoked headlights though....are these on the jap altezza? cheers
  14. yeah inside the lens looked dark rather than chrome. i think they would look cool on my silver is. might try and get some!
