Talking FrankyBoy Official Build Thread....Let's Gooooo.....

Hello Ladies and Gents!

It's now been a cool month and a half since I purchased my 2007 Lexus LS460 SWB (Short Wheel Base) from JM Lexus out of Florida and it's been an exhilarating experience being an owner to a car I've dreamed about owning since it's inception. It's also been a headache somewhat but Lexus has made the repairs seamless and a good experience as well. You can bet that means I had a ZERO balance when it was all said and done. LOL...

These pictures show off my ride before the the install of my Vossen wheels and Megan's coilover setup. Isn't she pretty!

Anyways, Big ups to Elite Import Auto aka Chris Yi & Team for hooking my LS up and we're not done yet.

Isn't she pretty?

I have to say ladies and gents! The Vossen wheels are more than I expected them to be and very happy with them. The Megan coilovers are in a league of their own as well. I didn't get to take any pictures of the coilover installation either. We have to still fine tune my suspension to my liking but so far so good and....I love the them!

More updates to come so keep checking back team!

Looks very nice. Are those Vossens 20" or 22"? How did the ride quality change when you put on the Vossens?
