Vertex Endurance bumper and canards installed and some more stuff













Click here for more photos of the exterior.


It fits perfectly with the USDM bumper beam on, just had to sawzall a chunk off the front corners of the beam and remove the foam.

Big thanks to Warren and Dat at SpeedAlliance/Vertex-USA for the awesome product.

I like it, and it would look nice with an intercooler. The canards look pretty good, don't see them too often so it's something unique. You should get the rest of the kit to finish of the look. +rep for pics.

Wow I really like that in MSM. Someone should try getting the canards overlayed, or painted a different color though I'd like to see what that looks like.

In 5 years I will have the worlds fastest IS300... because everyone else will have parted out and bought an M3.

I'm waiting on the Vertex wide fenders which are coming on the next shipment. As for sides and rear, I don't really like the Vertex sides and I need a JDM rear bumper(if anyone knows where to get a good deal on one please message me). I'll be autox'n this car within a month once I get the handling all dialed in and haven't really seen any sideskirts yet which have caught my attention.

The photos are of my Thunder Cloud Metallic. Have you seen it somewhere else in silver?
If they look bad it's because I'm no good with taking photos and lighting.

PM info on where you got it from. +rep! That is a sweet looking ride.. just be careful of those cones. Hehe. Can you take a side shot? I'd like to see how low the bumper looks w/o sides.

Nice front bumper. Very rare, you're only the second person I know of to get it. The other being solo, who's had this bumper for several years, along with the canards.

Looks great in Thundercloud Metallic. I'm surprised you'd risk damaging the bumper while autocrossing.

It's not fun to have nice parts on a car and not drive it with them like it's meant to be driven!


Thanks for the comments, I'll keep this updated when I do more work soon.
