The Story

I bought my 2007 IS250 as a daily driver in 2020. Had no intentions of modding my car. I wanted a nice car to commute back and forth to work. That's it. Then COVID and working from home happened, so I started watching a lot of YouTube. I found Alex, Gels, and Dakota from their previous employer/channel and learned a lot about mods and aftermarket parts. Now 3.5 years later the mod list is long and still going strong. It is still my daily driver.
