Why no introduction of a VPS wheel with the IS build? Would think SEMA, as well as the IS FSport being under the Lexus booth, is the perfect opportunity to introduce them?

yeah...even though it was a pretty aggressive kit to add onto the IS from the contest winner, it looks as if they cut corners in making it a reality. which for such a media heavy event and to be displayed in the Lexus booth, is a bad move to me.

It was based on a drawing from a contest Lexus hosted. The builder had around 30 days to make the drawing a reality. It's quite an amazing feat.

well then the person at Lexus in charge of the contest should be demoted, for the least scolded heavily about the turnaround time for making the contest winners submittal a reality...knowing the way graphic designers will add to its original form, to leave just 30-days for this to complete the vehicle is absurd and complete oversight by, I would assume, the marketing team at Lexus.

This is a billion dollar company, known for quality and refinement, amongst many other things. I remember when door/panel space gapping was a huge deal within Lexus and did heavy refining to lessen those spaces...so attention to detail along those lines are what I expect at ALL levels from Lexus, especially something they plan to promote on such a scale. SEMA, probably the best auto event for the year, and this is the end result in which VIP delivers?
