Greetings from Miami picked up this 2017 Touring in December and the mod bug really got to me lately coming from a 2007 IS250.



First thing I did was slap on some 5% tint all around and a light tint on front windshield

239635


License plate led upgrade
239636



Weathertech Floor Mats front and rear
239637



Wanted to Dechrome all the trim around the car as I wanted to focus on a black out look to get things going


Window Trim before and after

239638



Front of car before and after
239639



Rear of car before and after ( also switched out to a black license plate to go with my theme)
239640



picked up a set of the factory 17 GT wheels to go with the scheme more until I made the jump to coilovers and new wheels.

Megan EZ Coils arrived last week

Looks great.

The car will handles noticeably better when you decrease the un sprung weight.

Have you decided on tires yet?

what does decreasing the un sprung weight mean exactly is it something I need to do? and I am getting a great deal on Nitto Motivo tires through the wheel company so plan on going that route.

Finally was able to get an alignment after the suspension install and new wheels. What a difference rides like factory before and after print outs.

I'll try to update everything I haven't logged in for awhile and I don't think that was available previously. The ET 32 does fit without poking out no issues. Original post continued

Uh, hmm... what brand? Never knew you could do coil overs without a strut in the middle.

that's the rear coils they are Megan EZ racing street series my previous cars had the struts but I know a few other makes of cars have a similar rear set up
