Default AIMGAIN LS430 Build

Since you guys already know that we are the official Aimgain Distributor for North America, we knew that we needed to build an official 3T/Aimgain car. What we purchased was a 2005 LS430 silver on black. We decided on what parts we wanted for the car and came up with the following list.

1. Generations full kit
2. Aimgain Coilover Kit
3. Aimgain Wheels
4. Generation Exhaust

We unfortunately didn't have a whole lot of time to get this done for SEMA so off to K&W for the paint and fit, which turned out to be really nice so not to much effort there. We got the parts painted and fitted to the car and got it back on the day before we were leaving for SEMA. From there, we worked on the suspension, mounting of the tires onto the wheels and the final touches. Here is a bit of the picture story of how it all went down. Enjoy!

looks really nice. How about putting MSRP or prices for the components here too?

More pix please I like to see the exhaust and what looks like trunk spoiler mounted. Pricing would be nice too. Front bumper not too aggressive, to the untrained eye, it may look like a stock pre 04.

Due to fluctuation of Yen it is best not to post MSRP

So do you stock these items or are they all custom order? Yen prices are fine as I can look up the daily exchange rate. Thanks.

I love the Aimgain Generations kit. I like the side vents on the front bumper and the Crown style fog lamp provisions.

thanks for the rear pics, not a bad job but i would have thought the fitment would be a little more aggressive for the wheels and fenders. i love the rear bumper and exhaust + trunk lip spoiler look. any thoughts about lowering it more┐ what happens to the car now, i'm guessing its somebody's personal car?

Thanks for the compliments. The look of the car is a compromise between daily driver and looks. The car rubs as is in the rear when you hit dips at speed so until we either trim the inside of the quarter panel or flare it a bit this is as low as its going to get for now. The front is low enough to the point where at some driveways we are very close to scratching. This car belongs to our general manager here at 3T and he likes the way it looks so I'm guessing it won't be going anywhere anytime soon. I also have just purchased a Q45 that will hopefully be getting the AimGain treatment as well. I'll keep you guys posted but I don't know if I'm allowed to be posting non Lexus related automobiles here at CL.
