Whilst the bumper was off I fitted some LED's to the grill to light the intercooler at some of our car meets (only at meets)
Whilst in the process I changed my side lights to LED sidelight strips
I also Fitted 6400k HID I did wire these in non standard they basicly take a trigger from the normal light circuit to activate a relay which draws power direct from the battery this = no dips when cranking.
You can buy these relay kits buy my thoughts why buy when you can make!!
So now that I had the bigger cooler the bigger exhaust I then realised I had no way of telling what it was doing pressure wise etc, now most people have gauges on the A pillar in the Is200 or then have them mounted in the centre console. Now me being me wanted to be different I wanted the best of both worlds gauges in the middle but stealthy, so I hunted until I came across the HKS Camp 2 System very cool
It arrived like this
Doesn’t look like much but a pain to wire in but how wrong was I…
So all working and here is the kiddy
I was happy until I tried driving and looking at the gauges then realised they were to low down so time for a rethink

Now the is200 comes in a navigator model as well but the sat nav is out of the arc luckily I didn’t have it in mine I so I thought why I don’t put a touch screen in the standard housing so I got to work
Take them all apart have a juggle with the wiring and you get
So on to Fitting in the car
Here we have it working
Did I mention it was toucscreen so I also have an INCAR pc well my laptop in the glove box at meets lol!!!
Since then I have also fitted TTE Coilovers and TTE ARBS but no pics of these im afraid as the weather was a bit dodgy once fitted I took the car to Wheels In Motion and Dr Bones did a full Geo set up car handles perfectly now and no inner tire wear yippee
whilst it was there I also got the arches rolled so I can now fit a Nice set of 18's on or 19s if I really wanted but then it might sit a tad to low in the wheel arch will have to see....
So this now sees up until about December 09 I now started to feel the car was lacking some bling!!
So I invested in the following
Stainless Steel Radiator Panel
Stainless Steel Suspension Tops
TTE Supercharger Badges
Chrome Lexus Steering wheel Badge is shown above
Now I have done some cosmetic things back to the fun stuff
LED Dash Lights.
