  1. When you say IS250, are you referring to 2nd gen or 3rd gen?
  2. You got a fair point there. That would likely be the wise choice, but guess I am just not the type to sit still...
  3. Been checking on the US forum but they do the conversion from a 200T to 350 conversion, but when checking the bracket mounting points, they appear to be a 1:1 match. I am just trying to figure out if I need to purchase the bracket as well.
  4. Tx Rayaan, not sure I understand this part of the sentence since I am not a native english speaker; but when you say "its the regen on the IS300h", I am assuming you mean this is software related, not any mechanical parts than can adjust the sensitivity of the braking, right?
  5. Been thinking about this for some time as I just dont like the small tiny calipers in the front. Also, for some reason I just can't get used to the sensitivity of the way it brakes...it just doesnt brake gradually to my feel (Just trying to find an excuse to do the conversion). Anyhow, it does not seem it will be a 1 on 1 conversion considering the bracket mounting points seem to differ. Anyone got any clue?
  6. After some research I opted for an aftermarket rearlip with diffuser. Had to cut off the tips bending down, but I was able to bolt on aftermarket exhaust tips on that similar to the OEM ones.
  7. Agree with 200h. It could have been just an accessory item mounted on the rear lip just for the looks, so not mounted to the muffler at all (therefore no heat issue). Although the pic now shows it is mounted to the muffler.
  8. Been checking this based on the item number 17408-31110 (Tail end pipe). Seems it is mounted on the muffler only.
  9. Tx Jesus!! If you could take a pic from underneath it would be really helpful. So a picture of the backside of the rear bumper lip. This way we can see if at all there are any brackets we need to consider off as part of mounting the new end tip. Btw, your rear looks amazing!!
  10. Tx, so I am trying to figure out if the new end tip is mounted to the muffler only, or to the rear bumper only, or mounted to both? 1. If mounted to the muffler only, I understand why you need to cut the end pointing downwards. But this gives me the option to repurpose the original 300h rear lip and just cut out the shape of the new tip. 2. If mounted to rear lip only, I assume there may not be the need to cut the end pointing downwards (although it may not look as good). In this case I will need to buy the revised bumper to fit the brackets needed for the new tip to fit. 3. If mounted to both, I will need all the items you mentioned. Please advise (btw, really appreciate your help!)
  11. Hi Jesus, Tx for sharing. Thinking of doing the same. Can you advise if the exhaust tips are mounted on the original muffler (where you cut the end tip going downwards) or are they mounted on the rear bumper lip only (so not connected to the muffler). Tx Key
