  1. Anyone planning a meet any time this year? Keen to hear any ISFs with Borla/JoeZ exhausts.
  2. This thread is more than 2 years old mate.
  3. Awesome, good insight into the similarities and differences between your cars. I think a lot of people nowadays compare the S3 to the IS350 as well due to the price similarities. I too was about to pick up a white IS350 from Melb city lexus maybe 2 years ago but decided to just wait a bit longer.
  4. Did you have the Audi S3 Sedan? How does your last few cars compare to the IS350?
  5. Sounds like my OEM brembo brakes lol... Have still done it after almost 6000Kms Think I may need to take a road trip where I am able to constantly brake from high speeds consecutively to maybe fix it.
  6. Just checked the USB, mines blank :( The LFA sound is absolutely amazing.
  7. Went to this, was a pretty good day, although a lot of waiting and not enough driving :( - 3 laps of the Sandown race course in 3 cars, RCF, GSF and NX, so a total of 9 laps, instructed by a professional driver. - 3 hot-laps with a professional driver in a GSF as a passenger. - Free food/drinks/snacks - 5 lucky winners to be driven by Alan Jones (former F1 driver) in an LFA - Goody bag at the end - framed photo taken on the day, Lexus USB stick, Microfibre cloth, key ring and a cap. GSF was by far my favorite car of the day, much preferred it to the RCF, RCF does sound louder under WOT to me though.
  8. Haha yeh I just googled it, came across an ancient thread where some people showed how to fit it in their car - not sure if i'd want to do that to mine though, really don't want to damage the trim/seats/or whatever in the car. Also read that someone has been waiting ages for their tom's diffuser or something from modinjapan and they never got replied to until they made a thread on clublexus. I think the general consensus is JoeZ > Borla > XForce? Also supposedly there are a number of people that have issues with the varex system on the XForce.
  9. Not locally, I've called up Lexus of Chatswood recently and they said they don't do it anymore, not since the $ dropped somewhere back in 2012-13. I've been doing some searching around, your only options are - bestexhausts - can buy the Borla from there, but they just import it anyways - xforce - buy JoeZ from modinjapan and ship it over from the states. I was planning on getting the Borla, then found out that the JoeZ is superior in sound and quality/fit/finish (some report more droning and smell from the Borla) Did a bit more reading and also realized that the ISF stock exhaust doesn't come apart into several parts like the JoeZ etc. and therefore I have no way of getting it back home without renting a van/ute/whatever.
  10. Currently i'm looking at these - http://www.bestexhaust.com.au/store/borla-lexus-2008-2014-back-p-852.html Have done a little bit of reading and it seems like these exhausts are decent, although they appear to be the only ones available here in Australia that you can attain with somewhat ease. ** Did a bit of further reading and it seems like there may be possible quality issues with Borla exhausts? read someone with the IS350 one complaining that the fitment sucked as it hung far too low below the car. Furthermore, there have been mentions of people complaining about the droning with this exhaust, I think it's hard to pull the trigger on this without hearing it in real life as Youtube videos can differ greatly to what it sounds in person. The smell that comes out is probably an even bigger issue which has also been mentioned on clublexus.
  11. japanpartsmaster don't show the shipping costs, it claims they send you a separate bill after ordering it. vipautosalon comes to about $1500 delivered not including painting/coating it etc.
  12. Thanks, looks like the only option is through importing? Not looking for replicas, I've read that even the official ones have fitment issues, small gaps around etc. and the replicas are FAR worse in this regard.
  13. Hey guys, Does anyone know where the best place to get parts in particular the TOM's rear diffuser etc. are now with the ISF being deprecated. I've read a few threads here for where people purchased them, however they don't seem to carry those parts anymore and those threads were at least 2-3 years old. Thanks.
  14. Yeh the BMW one that I've heard about included the 428 435 and M4. This one seems to be the RCF and GSF, I would be fairly disappointed if it was anything else.
  15. Yep i'm planning on attending. it is only $185 per person which appears to be half the price of what BMW were charging.
