Farid Nurmohamed

Farid Nurmohamed has been building, tweaking and rebuilding his IS300 for years, finally getting close to where he wants it to be. Like many IS300 owners, Nurmohamed chose this platform as a starting point because of its combination of performance, handling prowess and renowned reliability. In addition, he was drawn in because of the aftermarket potential, both in performance and aesthetics. Nurmohamed has always been a fan of wide, beefy styling, and that's the direction he took his IS300 in from day one. He tells us that his favorite part of the build is all the different ways to cleanly pull off a wide, function-built stance while still pushing the boundaries of style and fitment.
