Detailed review of the eBay 2014-2016 3IS conversion bumper for my Lexus IS250.
OIC Racing (no Lip):
OIC RACING (with lip):
I got my bumper conversion from Ikon (same company as Advance Tuning on eBay, out of stock March-’21).
My preliminary impressions are good as far as polypropylene plastic quality. The mold is real nice and has alot of premolded screws for everything on the back. It uses OEM style fog lights found in most all Lexus and Toyota since 2009. The ones that came with this are OEM Lexus Style LED fogs. The grill was disappointing because it had four useless holes in the middle!!! Not sure if in China or other markets they have a difference front license plate holder. The OEM dimples and backside screw molds are there for the US license plate for you to drill.
If you wanted added protection for freshly painted number, use a ceramic coating like Armorshield IX from AvalonKing.

Hey Binh, I wanted to thank you for your time and dedication on doing this conversion and doing a write up on it. I was reading through the thread and looking at your comments but I couldn't find where you purchased the aftermarket grill. Do you still have the link to it? Please anything helps 🙁
No doubt that this looks good but wow that is a lot of work to get to that point.
No matter what Scotty Kilmer says about the large looking grille, I will always like how it looks over the old one.
What’s kind/name of lip you added?
Very nice brother
Can you ship on bénin ?
What’s the naw of the lip .
Hey not sure if you still follow this thread. I've been trying for the life of me to figure out what rims you have on this car. If you see this would you mind sharing. Thanks…Great content

Hey, would you know anywhere cheap to source a conversion kit for the 250? I am based in New Zealand

Really want to buy one but they’re out of stock rn 😢
Looks really good! Great job
Nice, but I prefer the simplicity and clean lines of the 2is. Much more sleek.
After the changes, it looks like the 2020 IS Lexus model
how did you get the emblem to fit i bought the same one and it has a tab on the bottom
Hello I just bought this front bumper and it does not fit my car I brought it to the shop and they said that it does not fit around the headlamp it is elongated
Do you know if 2013 F-Sport OEM bumper will fit a 2012 ?2IS
How to do I change the fog lights what do I swap out?
Damn over 1600 fa a nice lukin bumper…😒
What’s think link to the lip?
What's the grill screw part number?
another guy here to say thank you for all the information you've provided on here & the forums that has assisted many owners like me to do these mods at home.
What did you use to cover up the holes on front grill?
Did those fog lights come with bumper or you put some on?
How much you pay to paint? I’m getting quoted 530 -600 to paint and install
Where can i get the front splitter?
I purchased this exact bumper, but the seller told me they ran out of the front lip.
So I have a 2006 Lexus is250, so your telling me this would work??
How long are the 6 screws you used on the grill?
I need a emblem for this bumper anyone got the link?
I have to cut the bash bar
Where you buy the grill? Is that the oem 2014 grill?
How much would this cost for someone to install it?
Damn this looks sick
But the price point for me is a pain in the ass
Holy crap what effort did they put in that?
Could you send the link for the pig tails you used for the fog lights.
With all these fitting complications, would it be better to buy from NIA or Car Act?
Hi just wanted to know if there is a way where i can just get the lip for it i have the bumper??
Sell me your complete front bumper plz and thank you
Nice looking car..
Can a 2013 rx350 be upgraded to a 2019 bumper ?
