I have had my IS250 F Sport for a year now and  and I am considering a few upgrades.  My priorities are intake and exhaust.  I am looking at the Lexus cold air intake and the exhaust as well.  Is it worth going with Lexus or should I look at other sources?  What about the shocks? I was looking into the Bilstein shocks offered by Lexus.  Thanks for your comments in advance.

Hi Johnathan and welcome.


You ask a good question. With so many company's selling every part under the sun, it is difficult to learn what parts are good as OEM>

My guess is that you'll find Lexus OEM parts are consistently higher than any other source. I imagine someone else will chime in here and may be able to be more specific on brands and specification.

No intake. Stock intake is cold air. 

Get exhaust if want louder

coilovers good if you live in states with nice roads. 

Wheels 2000$ ish. I wouldn't spend 4000$ wheels on a Lexus IS. 

Nowadays people ride stock man. Grown men don't go into that car show off stuff. Save your money buy better car later down.
