It's not comfier, at least I liked sitting in the Corolla more .... but the IS300 is waaay more luxurious. Not sure about the IS200 though.

The IS300 has the I6 2jzge engine at 220 HP.

Oh no, it is very luxurious! It has soooo many awesome features I can't count that high!

But the seats are leather... I liked the cloth ones more I think, it's easy to slide around in the leather. The Corolla seats fit me perfectly, but the IS300 ones are adjustable in so many ways, I'll never get it perfect haha. It is definitely comfortable though, and it just took a while to get used to it. It is a lot of fun to drive for sure, and it definitely a lot faster than my Ae102.

Yes, I was lucky to get some pics with leaves on that small road! Not much like that around here, all too much development.

It's a 2002, 120,000 miles. The underside is surprisingly clean and rust free.... I was even able to unbolt the stock exhaust! You know how hard that can be LOL.

Looks nice! I think you picked yourself up a great car.

Oh Yes, I know! I cant even unbolt my broken A/C line to replace it lol

and you were wondering when the rust would come back on my car...its back lol...Its starting to bubble around the back wheelwell and along the bottom of my drivers door. It only took 1 winter lol. Though I cant say that I did a very good job at removing the rust (ran out of time and winter was approaching and wanted to paint it before too cold).

But even when I "removed" the rust on mine, the problem is that it was coming up from underneath, so the rust is all underneath the "fix", and all the good metal you can see is being eaten from behind.

I dont think I am going to attempt to "remove" mine again. Unless I hit the lottery to do a complete restoration. It could happen lol

Yeah, they came out too dark in the second pic, and the last pic was just used to show the LED setup.

That looks GOOD. I love the taillight idea too. Looks very OEM.

Thanks Kenny, that's the idea! Sure, it's not exactly OEM IS300... but honestly, OEM IS300 is so riced out that I want something more "OEM" to other vehicles.

Help guys!

I still can't make up my mind about the tail lights. I just can't see the all-red looking good on this color. It clashes, especially with the rest of the car having no color (except the centercaps LOL).

So I put together some better photoshops showing the all red, all clear, or stock. The all clear and stock are just a sample, as I'll still use the LED tail lights, just either with those all clear, all red, or stock-like (a horseshoe red section instead of a circle).

Man that's tough. I can't decide either...


I kinda like this one. Except maybe make the red brighter or more vivid to match the IS300's blue hue.


The chrome makes the tailights a tad too flashy, but it's honestly not that bad.


This I sorta like and I sorta don't. The grey lights on the trunk look kinda out of place and the rest of the tailights look dull against the blue paint.

Sooooo I guess I would go with the first one. Except not that dark and with the custom LED job! Oh and I'd do custom LEDs in the two little trunk lights too.

But that's just me. Very Happy

Yeah, they came out way too dark there. That was supposed to be red and chrome, not all smoked looking lol.

Those are the stock lights obviously, and they are the darkest OEM chrome finish available. But I'd paint it black or gunmetal with the red, so that they wouldn't be flashy.

Again, the lights would be a lot darker.

I'm definitely doing the trunk lights of course LOL.

But I don't want it to turn out like these;




more...




The "black" insides I want to do would look like one of these:

And the all clear with black insides would look something like this
