LS460L Executive Package

Just got the DataSystems Air Ride Controller installed over the weekend along with the Navigation Override and a VaisTech Sl2i-UP.

Big thanks to Chung@Prestigious for the parts and Henry for helping me with the installation/tutorial on how all this stuff works!

Quick Picture in the Parking Lot near the Office:

Ordered a set of Weds Kranze Bazreia (Chrome) 22x9.5/10.5. No actual ETA on the wheels yet, I'm assuming Tokyo Auto Salon has all the manufacturers super busy showcasing their new products/cars.

Hopefully soon!

Congrats buddy. The chrome wheels with the black paint is the only way to go. I still dont understand why some people dont like chrome. ( even on dark colored cars)

Probably because so many people have done it wrong and associated it with hip hop/rap artists they want nothing to do with it. The way I see it, black on black has completely exhausted its welcome and chrome is classic

i think machined wheels is a good look too. I got some, putting them on next week once this snow and salt is gone here in ATL..I think chrome does look good, but i think machined wheels give the wheels just enough bling..chrome seems to make wheels look smaller to me for some reason.

I still don't like the tucked look, reminds me of a S-class with bad air suspension

Just snapped another quick picture with my BB after having slapped the wheels and tires on. Big Thanks to Falken Tire

Still not where I want to be height wise, but without camber adjustment, I'm so limited with such a big wheel. I'm gonna have to take a look at getting some custom arms made.
