Imagine it below:

i think it'll look nice

loosing the silver chrome would look nice. i know people tell you it looks like a toyota. no way in heck.

after loosing the chrome i would play with charcoaling out the head lights and fogs. by taking them apart and painting the inside of the housings.

Looks really nice indeed! I wonder how much it did cost from start to finish - parts and labor. It's tempting.

Thanks guys....I spoke to Ryan at RJs paint and body in Pleasanton (he did all the body and paint work on my car and is a total pro) and he would simply remove the chrome trim pieces, primer and spray them in black. I am also thinking of doing the exhaust pipes and other small accent pieces. Might be my next little project

Smile I am not a fan of modification I repeat I am not a fan.......

.....but, this is the best mod job Ive ever seen on a Lexus of any year. I am a stock guy myself but, this is the most cleanly modified LS Ive ever seen and I LOVE IT. If Lexus wants to attract younger buyers and older buyers who seek a more sporty look, this is what they should copy.

The sport edition Lexus sells isnt that appealing but, what you guys did, simply is fantastic! WOW, great job. It looks like a Benz AMG when moded out like you guys did this LS. The BIG difference is the LS is a more reliable car. As you can tell Im very impressed,very impressed!!! L.G.N.M

Actually Lexus did this about 3 years ago for SEMA 2007.

I always have and still do want to have all my chrome trim and grille done up the same black pearl as my emblems or all black chrome. I think this would look phat on your car, what do you think? To my knowledge this still hasn't been done yet.

Yeah, I am pretty scared to drive it actually...especially since it is now really low (brought it down for the Wekfest show and didn't raise it back up) . Wald does it right! Thanks for the comments!

Default Wow!!

You have set the bar on modding a car and maintaining its class and luxury. Very tasteful and aggressive at the same time. I love the fact that I don't see many LS's on the street, but wish there was a way us budget ballers could pull this off.

Kudos on this one!!

Just keepin it real...

I'm a little afraid to lower my car though. Exiting some parking lots are tricky with the car at stock height. I can't imagine the car being 2 or 3 inches lower...SCARY!!
