Default My First LS400: SPICY

Hey everyone!

New to the Lexus community. Picked up this LS400 from my friend Jake and started playing with it!

Dying to find a front lip and skirts for this thing! Anyone know a good place to look or anyone that's got anything for sale? I've heard the post-face lift front lips don't fit well on the pre-face lift models. But would like to see anyone who've tried.

Anyways, on to some pictures.

First day I got her like this: On bags over coils on e-level with Work Schwert SC3's

Picked up some Locksmice Dukes for it:

Threw on exhaust today from a buddy Andrey who does great work. I'm sure some of you on here know him.

Is it me, or am I the only one here who thinks the LS 400 looks better when it is not slammed?

No, not just you. Not my cup of tea, either.

But what ever floats your boat, so rock on.

Where is cowboy at? ..... I appreciate a clean stock car too, but I loved the LS's when they are laying frame.

Coming from my old E36 that was static it was my original plan to put the Lexus back on coilovers but I have to admit it's really nice to be on air ride! Here's a picture of my old E36:

I don't like cars that are that low but looking good!

Hmm...How do your front passenger get out of the car if the sidewalk is too high? Lol
