Tai3IS IS250 F Sport Build - Here we go

Compliments of Tai3IS @ www.clublexus.com


Well, here we go. Decided to start my own thread to document this new project. Recently traded in my 2012 Hyundai Azera for a Lexus, a 2014 IS250 F Sport / Nebula Grey with Rioja interior. I've always been known for never leaving anything in stock form and i already can't wait to get started.

Here's some pics of what i traded in:

Got the new car at JM Lexus, and I just have to mention that my sales guy Chad Scharmann was amazing. I didn't even plan on getting into a new car, but with the deal that he and the team at JM Lexus put together for me.....I just couldn't pass it up. 

Here's when i first laid eyes on the new beauty:

First mod had to be some tint. 30% all the way around. Thanks to the guys at Wilson Window Tinting in Margate, FL. 

As much as i have tried going fish bowl here in South Florida, I just can't do it.

And even though our weather isn't the greatest this weekend, i still had to give the car her first initial wax, polish, and sealant treatment. I do this to every new car i get. It just helps maintaining clean status so much easier.
