JBLUR's 2017 Touring Build Thread

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



License plate led upgrade



Weathertech Floor Mats front and rear



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




Front of car before and after



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



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






Install and results



after install height doesn't matter as much right now as I plan on getting 20s and fine tuning everything at that point.



This week test fitting the New Velgen VF5 Light Series. This is a great company with great customer service and quality wheels and being local to the company doesn't hurt either lol. Been through numerous setups on my previous car. Plan to go gloss black however to match with my overall look.











will update as I make progress any questions feel free to ask here or pm me. Happy to be a part of this community.

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.
