Default Onto the next Gen.. 07 GS350 Intro/Build

Hey whats up everyone.. I have been a member/lurker here for a few years now.. I have owned a 00 GS300 for the past few years with Basic mods.. The new car itch has been for the past few months and was really undecided on what to buy.. Wanted to really stay in the Lexus family was really looking at an ISF just couldnt find the right one..If i did then it was more than I wanted to spend.. The GS was on my mind and all it took was the right aero kit to seal the deal.. I know need a body kit to decide on a car..lol..I work for Vivid Racing so I had to have something that I can mod but keep VIP status(just in our blood).. If really wanted to go fast then I would just hop into my Boosted Type R(pictured last)..

SO what kit do you ask sealed the deal.. It is the Black Pearl.. I didn't even of the Silver one in Socal until after I bought the car.

A friend of mine, whom I think is a member here also made me a deal I couldnt pass up so I bit the bullet and "Pearla" will be here next week finally after finding a decent transporter.

Current Mods
Oem isf/6 pot brembo brakes powdercoated dormant blue.
Tanabe sustec pro 5 coilovers
Tanabe medallion exhaust.
Work gnosis hs203 20x9.5f 20x10.5r
Isf front hubs
Is350 shifter
6000k d2s bulbs.
Full hertz audio conversion
Jl w3 8" in center ski pass
Ppe headers
K&n short ram intake

Parts to install
Fablous Shift ****
Accuair E level with iLEVEL WIFI RECEIVER ( From the good friends @Accuair)
UAS is converting my coilover to a bag setup(1st of its kind they are telling me)
Redo Brake Calipers Yellow with Custom Lexus Decal**
Black Pearl Body kit ** still need to be ordered**
Artisan Fenders---** still need to be ordered**





If you dont know about the Black Pearl here is how she looks.








Here is my Type R (making about 450whp)











Thanks for taking the time to read and any feed back is appreciated.. Excited to get into the next gen.. (new to me l)

I will try to update this as much as possible as Im busy as F*** during the day selling parts to guys like you.

Thanks, Im excited.. funny thing is I bought the GS without even test driving it..think of it I've only been in one of these new models twice.. So you can say I'm excited to see what the next offers

Saw these on the DIY section and decided to do a quick search and somehow on Egay I saw a killer price and had to do it.. So figured to share with everyone here.

You're not the first one to get UAS to put bags on coilovers .

There's been plenty before me, and I got mine's done in '11 lol.

GL on everything, mods sound promising!

Ups and downs, more adjustability, Bags are bigger so they're more comfortable than my buddy's Airrex or D2 (I've no clue which one his 3GS is equipped with). Downfall is it takes a full 5gal tank (unknown psi) to pancake and rise back up (compressors go off each time).

I mean, it's like clouds on bumps and road imperfections (unless you hit dips, in which every bag car has trouble with from what I've witnessed).
