Thanks, would love to see yours Saturday as well!

Took this pic after dinner as it settled some. You can see the rear is much lower and the front is slightly lower and the car now sits really nice over the stock wheels. Very happy!
Damn I want this looks so bad. Looks good especially after the rims are installed.

Thanks bro. More pics, conservative drop, perfect for us right now and even with stock wheels it closes that gap. Looks so much better and more tidy. Its funny that these are the widest wheels on any Lexus not an LFA and they need spacers to fit flush, the drop shows it more to me.

Cool

I was slightly nervous that her choice would look too much like stock but when we dropped the car we knew she made a great choice. This is a perfect drop and look for the executive that wants an OEM+ look and when she saw it for the first time she yelled and loved it! I had to make a quick stop to Butler Tire to get black wheel tuner nuts as the stock Lexus ones do not work. Thanks to David and Dani there!

We inspected it and drove it around and Donnie was stunned at how well he drove, again they deal mostly with Euro cars and high performance M/AMG etc cars so its great to see Lexus really hit the mark in regards to the way it drives. This is high praise!

The Vossen CV4's and RS*R combo here is PERFECT, this is exactly what we wanted. Super super happy. The wheels fit super flush with the 20x9 and 20x10.5 size, +32 up front and +45 in the rear. I really like the Invo Tire and I much prefer the 30 sidewall, my 3GS used the 25 sidewall and IMO it is too thin for my liking. I cleared my fender to make the 30 fit and I was happy so I know I will be happy with the 30 on the 4GS where the larger size lets it fit properly.

We call her "Scarlett" and she is running Nitto Invo 245/35/20 and 285/30/20. There is no scrubbing or issues with this combo and again it has the DRS (rear steer) and I've driven it hard already and I didn't hear any noises. Also there are no issues with the headlights.

More pics to come soon.

Thanks to

Oh oh..... Once you see the car you realize it was all worth it. She looks perfect, drop = perfect, wheels = perfect. I see you... Tell the wife congratz, I know she's happy with the results. I have a feeling you have more up your sleeve... I'm just sayin. Waiting for sun shots.

Thanks bro. I wish my next mod was like you, power trunk and mirrors I'll use the SLR for some real pics, these iP5 pics are probably wearing people out.

BTW CL, I'm selling the 19" F-sports, 19x8 and 19x9, not even 5k miles on them, not one blemish.

Wow, that's smokin with the drop and CV4's.The CV4's are my favorite Vossen's.....except I would like them in 19"'s.

Now because of your setup, I am considering changing up from the RSR Down Sus to the regular Down springs. They seem like the perfect drop......except that I have AWD and hopefully it comes out looking the same.

PERFECTO. Now that's how an F-sport should look. Think you guys nailed it in the pursuit of perfection. The drop and wheels came together nicely but I think the finish of the wheels with the white car, hmmmm just bad ***.

Those CV4's are about to get real popular in the 4gen forums lol.

Looks great! I was initially going to go with CV4s but figured It'd be a pain to clean them (I know, I'm lazy lol) so I chose the CV7s and love them. Props my man!

Thanks a lot. A few people changed. Happy after 1500 or so miles.

Yes, I had to get a new brush to clean with. And I use only Eagle One.
