That's awesome. Thanks for the heads up I didn't even know something like this existed.

Nice! I just noticed my intercooler is rubbing the stock bar.

Just placed my order!

I emailed them last year when I had the VIS Racing Vertex replica but at the time it was discontinued. Since I asked about it last year, they just emailed me last night to let me know they're doing a limited run on it.

It's perfect timing because I just sold my front lip and placed an order for the Version:Select front bumper last week

I just need to make sure it'll clear the SRT intercooler and fit under the JDM bumper. It looks like it'll fit, but I emailed them back just to make sure. They're going to get back to me with some more pictures of it installed so I can make sure it fits with my setup. I'm pretty sure it's going to fit though, so I'll probably place my order in a little bit

Did they mention how limited? Was gonna wait until the Fall when the car is under the knife to buy one but if it's that limited I'll get one now.

Just the other day noticed the intercooler rub. Once I saw this I didn't think twice

Guess I'll have to get it now or regret it in 3 months haha

Any thoughts on the upper bar? I'm thinking corners at least are a good idea.

'Basic' was the only option I saw available. If I selected any additions it wouldn't let me add it to the cart. I was okay with that considering the stock bar is basic anyway.

If you guys are interested here's what the email said



Not sure how long "limited time only" will last but I'll be ordering mines soon.

My intercooler had only 1mm of clearance from the factory crash bar too, but I put a rubber gasket to keep it from rubbing. I'm hoping the new bash bar leaves more than enough room for it

I emailed them after hearing nothing about the order. Got an immediate response. Said they are currently working on all the IS300 bars and planning to ship in 2-3 weeks.

FYI for anyone waiting.

Mine came!



Hits the marker light




Looks like it wasn't bent far enough in. I'm either going to cut the ends off or exchange it depending on what Street Faction tells me.

Will update.

Placed my order too. These build times are long. Did you end up ordering the rear as well?
