3Is Bumper On 2Is - (Sourcing Parts + Cost ?)~ Guinea Pig Anyone ?


Recommended Posts

Hi, so im not sure if this conversion has been done in Australia, i would like to do this conversion.. but i have a limited budget of around $1,500,

Estimated costs are:

$450- starting bid for a used bumper (shipped)- http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Lexus-IS250-IS350-F-Sport-Front-Bumper-/331231885149?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item4d1ef5775d

$50 -100 for repair (fill small hole on the bottom of the bumper)

$100-250 (For Grille+Emblem - used)

$300-500 painted,

Total of around $1200-1500+ (using a used bumper),

not sure how much it will cost to blend the bumper tops.. kind of an expensive mod in the end,but worth it imo,

Here are some recent pics of a conversion performed in Japan: (the outcome is awesome!, especially with the new LED Foglights)

Anyone know how much it will cost to blend the top parts of the bumpers?.. or can it be a D.I.Y Project ?

Anyone wanna be a guinea pig ? :)

Il be doing this mod shortly to my Black IS250,

The white Jap IS looks badly done, look at the gaps near the lights/bonnet

The American done cars look great,

It may be cheaper to buy a bumper from Lexus Australia aswell, Not for all the parts though...

Does anybody know if this conversation has been done in Australia yet? I think this together with a transmission console upgrade would help the 2IS look a lot more modern

Thank you, a kit would be what I’m after. Do you know if the kits are sold in Australia? Or do that have to be imported?
