COREY WATTELET’S 2005 LEXUS IS300



It’s 2015 already – can you believe it! Another year come and gone.
A lot has happened in the scene here since stance and stretch started showing up more in 2009.
Many states scene’s may seem explosive compared to our numbers in the midwest but we have plenty of quality builds.
One of those cars is this super unique and meticulously modded is300 out of Jonesboro, Arkansas.
I don’t feaure many cars from other states but they are usually from a close sister state.
Besides the obvious attractive stance, this car captivates me on so many levels, so, i obviously had no choice.
The thrill I get seeing a low and mean RWD luxury sport car showing up on Facebook is one thing.
Finding out the owner has it nussled just a few hours aways made me giddy like a school girl.
I jumped at the chance for all Corey’s hard work to be showcased here.

The FULL and entire mod list on this car is a mega grocery list of jdm, quality, and rare parts.
The first one i was drooling over was the carbon fiber quarter window vent. Like who has those on a lexus?! So awesome and very rare.

And the fitment you say? Spot on and perfectly dialed in for daily driving.
The wheels and alignment specs are as follows:
Wheels Blitz Type 03 18×10 +30 18×10.5 +35 225/35/18 -4.9* camber front 255/35/18 -2.6* camber rear
I wouldn’t change a thing. What a gorgeous example of what an aggressive Lexus should look like!

To make sure the car handles and grips how a proper RWD platform should perform he has installed a set of BC coilovers with 12f/10r spring rates. Then to make sure the n/a 2jz was putting all that power down to where its needed and swapped out the open diff for a LSD.

Another huge reason i love this car besides all the performance parts added was the full
JDM Modellista Qualitat kit. Paired with ganador super mirrors, you have the perfect match. If i had a dream IS300 to build, those parts would be in the top 5 of my list. This is definitely one of the most trackable, aggressive, yet not overdone cars I’ve seen in the Midwest.


Corey’s IS300 is the perfect example of how to marry function and form together.
From simple and aggressive styling to a massive mod list with tons of go fast accessories, he has somehow blended them seamlessly together creating this game changer you see before you. Thanks for checking out our first feature of 2015 and enjoy the rest if the images followed by the remaining huge list of mods at the end.

Thanks to corey for all the awesome pictures and for the opportunity to show off his car here.
