Default Lei_z's Build Thread

I had my heart set on an LS 460 late 2010 so i decided to sell my 08 Acura TL Type-S and in March of 2011 i sold it. One year later i finally bought an 08 Obsidian Black LS 460 with 24k miles. The first thing i always do to all my cars is get it tinted since the Hawaii sun is brutal on leather and since the car was being shipped from Chicago to Hawaii i had more than enough time to buy led's, hid's for the fogs and 6k bulbs for the headlights. Wheels will be ordered once i know clearance

Day i picked up the car





All interior bulbs change to led

Front Vanity






Foot lighting from the door



Rear Vanity



Trunk lights



Front Headlights 6k Morimoto bulbs, 6k hid fogs and parking light led









Hopefully next week i can get the car into the shop to get all these installed with the alarm.

looks like you got some goodies to throw on the ride. When you get those wheels on I have a feeling you are going to be looking pretty good. What wheels are you going with. SomethignJDM?? I know the Islands tend to run more of a JDM style

Congrats on your sweet ride! It's great to see another LS460 member in the 808. I can't wait to see the rest of your mods. The only mods i have is a few leds and 20% tint. I've been a member here since my 03 ES, but I haven't been to a Saturday meet. The CL HI bunch seems to be a pretty cool group. See you around!

Welcome, you're off to a great start, I love those wheels you're considering. What bags will you be using with your kit?

I have yet to meet up with the CL HI guys. I did do a few car shows with my TL with a few of them and they are all cool guys. Ill have to go to one of the meets soon though.

My previous car had the standard air runners. The product is great but with air there is a sweet spot. If you do not hit that sweet spot the ride becomes very bad with it being to bouncy because of to much air and to stiff with not enough air. So i decide to buy the on the ground serious from air runner, that way i can still roll low but be in the sweet spot. The major difference is this kit is a coilover with air bag setup. I want the LS to still ride like a luxury car but once wheels go on that will make the ride even that much more harsh.
