The Ying Yang Brothers. Well not really. These 2 guys only connection is dopeness, in the form of Lexus IS’s. That and the fact that both are from Toronto. The scene here has definately been heating up lately. There’s still rice, here and there. But cars like these more than make up for the riff raff. 1 is White and 1 is Black. I haven’t made up my mind on which one I like better. But as a Subie owner I’m leaning towards the black one as it’s AWD. Wheels are a toss up..SSRs vs. Volks? As are the coils…..JIC vs Tanabe? Luckily it isn’t a competition. Both IS’s are justas awesome. As is this location. We’ll definately be shooting there soon. Sorry for stealing the locale. 🙂 On to the pics..
Oliver Ng. I drive a 2006 Lexus IS250 in Glacier Frost Mica.
Neither! I’m married, so obviously the love of my life is my wife and my 2 year old son.
I would certainly smile. But, I’ve never tried this…..yet.
I would’ve purchased an Audi TTS. Would it be modified? Of course!
How long are you holding on to it?
I’ve reached that stage of my life where I’m a family man now. So, my priorities have changed and sadly I’m in the midst of departing my IS.
I picked up an Audi A3 2.0T. The interior is surprisingly more spacious and the acceleration is quicker than the IS250. Not bad for my new family car. I’ve already done some “light” modifications to it. I promised myself it won’t be modified to the extent of my IS250. We’ll see if that holds true.
-We all know that won’t last. Oliver I hear the A3 rides great on Koni’s. 😉
Thank-you to Club Lexus for breaking my wallet and for inspiring me to pursue my hobby. I met a lot of great friends having the same passion. They include, our photographer Joseph, Mike, Carson, Pete, Rule, Victor, and Steven. Special thanks to my tuning shops Speedstar, Motorworks, APH, Cartech and Bullock City. Last, but not least my lovely wife who always supported me during these past 5 years. She never once stopped me from doing what I enjoy doing. Her philosophy is, “if it makes me happy then it makes her happy.” I guess I’m a lucky fella eh?
-Yup, definately a keeper.
AND THE YANG….
Industrial design and photography.
I took delivery of my IS back in November 2005. Due to the car being a fresh platform, aftermarket parts were scarce.
However, simple modifications such as red overlays and yellow fogs were applied a month after delivery. Soon after that, I had all emblems and the grille bezel painted black to match the car. The goal for this car was to maintain a clean aesthetic while pushing for a more aggressive stance.

I would cringe, but thankfully that hasn’t happened.
I would be in a 2004 grand prix white S2000 with an Amuse front bumper, black OEM hard top, and slammed on a set of BBS LMs. Yep, I have thought about it, many, many times.
I’ve considered moving onto a more mod-friendly platform, but ready to let go of the IS just yet.
IS350 big brakes are waiting to be installed while trying to find a set of BBS LMs to replace the TE37s. Full colour change is also near the top of the to-do list.
-I Fully support BBS LM’s. TE37s are cool but not LMs cool.
Thank you to everyone that has been part of this hobby we all share and to the guys at Impera, Motor Workshop, Bullock City, and Speedstar.
