The Lexus Body Kit Series: ES 350


The Lexus Body Kit Series: ES 350

My initial thought was to pass over it without mention, but the more I think about it, it’s quite surprising that the ES 350 has absolutely no body kits.

Why is that?

I think the major reason has to be that the ES 350 is no longer available in Japan, where most Lexus kits come from. The previous ES models were available there (as the Toyota Windom), but was discontinued with the ES 350’s release in 2007. Now the ES is sold only in North America, the Middle East, Korea and Taiwan.

Also, it stands to reason that most people who would consider a body kit in the first place would gravitate to the sportier models in the Lexus lineup, like the IS or GS. It can’t be denied, the ES 350 is a family car through and through, with an emphasis on comfort rather than performance or sportiness.

Still, there are a couple personalization options, available direct from Lexus, who offer a rear spoiler (which needs to be bolted on, and is therefore permanent) and side-body moldings:

  1. Not a fan of the body side molding the car does not look as clean looing

  2. i agree.. i’ve seen the side moldings on an ES before and it looks ugly, totally ruins the sleek lines of the ES.

  3. I agree with both of you, the side moldings don’t really add anything to the look of the car. Also, considering that door heights vary from vehicle to vehicle, they don’t offer any real protection from dings and dents.

  4. This news totally bums me out.

    I got my es350 in July and have been looking endlessly for body kits for it. I just got out of college, so i really wanted to distinguish my car from that of the soccer moms out there.

    This explains why i havent been able to find any kits out there and saddens me that i might never be able to spice up my ES.

  5. @Charles: I wouldn’t feel too disappointed, the ES 350 is a fantastic car that has style to spare. The spoiler looks to be a worthy mod, though as mentioned it does require holes drilled into the trunk.

    Even better, the money saved on a body kit will afford you some really, really nice wheels.

    Does your car have the panoramic moonroof?

  6. sadly it doesnt.. that one of the things i really wanted, but they didnt have any at the dealership; i have the spoiler though..

    Rims are very tricky…they can turn out great or can degrade the overall look of the car

    most of the rims ive seem on the ES350 on “cardomain” haven’t made me real excited to get rims, yet

  7. One thing I would recommend is looking at the rims of other Lexus’, you may see ones you like much better than trying to find aftermarkets.

  8. Never considered of this gracious point thank you a lot. I practiced this to my feed and appears to be working. Wonder how numerous airted connections I experience around from concerned in familiar bloggers blogs that give notice luv simply are pointing to my provender.
