I, like many people, would have preferred the FR-S had been released in North America the same way it was in Japan and the rest of the world — As a Toyota. So, There’s a few little remedies that can be done. Here are the ones that I’ve done so far. Oh, and I’ve included the part numbers so you don’t have to deal with all of the secrecy of the part numbers on some vendor forums or whatever. So without further delay, here are the pics and details:
JDM “Toyota” Nose badge (Toyota Part Number: SU003-03216 )
JDM “Toyota” trunk badge (Toyota Part Number: SU003-03219 )
JDM “Toyota” Wheel Center Caps (Toyota Part Number: SU003-00797 )
JDM Clear Side Markers (Toyota Part Numbers: SU003-02538, SU003-02539 )
It’s important to note that you will need to get some orange bulbs to go with these new side markers. Here is also a great opportunity to get some LED bulbs.
JDM Exhaust Tips (Toyota Part Number: SU003-01126 )
Here is a before and after shot so you can see the difference easier.
As you can see, the JDM tips are quite a bit more substantial.
All of these mods are purely cosmetic, but I think it gives the car a nicer look. I’m not one to just put JDM stuff on the car for the sake of having it be “JDM, Yo!”. This is more of a transformation back to it’s original form. Thanks for looking and I hope the part numbers help find the parts at the best prices.
