The Japanese performance division’s body parts for the new IS includes a front spoiler madeup of two parts that bookend the grille, a rear trunk lid spoiler, stylish sidesills, a chunky rear diffuser and sports muffler.

Chassis upgrades were limited to a new sports suspension coated in DLC (diamond-like carbon), 19-inch lightweight forged alloys, a member brace and performance damper. TRD has priced the upgrades at around 1.4 million Yen, (approx. $14k) on its Japanese website. Each part is available individually and it’s hoped US distributors will soon be offering them.
