Default Spotted: '98 Lexus GS-F

Hahhaha.... J/K!

Hello everyone. I decided on a new sportier stock-ish look and thought I would post some pictures. Newest photos on page 5!

I hope what I've done with the wheels are original. As far as I know, nobody has done this yet. The wheels/finish looks nice in person. They also look different in the sun and in the shade. All comments both positive and negative are welcomed.

Mods:
-18" 3GS OEM wheels
-Painted wheels... Steel Gray Pearl (new mod)
-IS-F center caps (new mod)
-Ichiba v2 spacers 15mm front and 20mm rear (new mod)
-Tein CS v2 set at 1.5 finger gap all around
-Borla exhaust.... deleted resonators
-TTE front lip
-Smoked sidemarkers (new mod)
-Sonar Red/Smoke LED tail lights (new mod)
-Sport Design style lip spoiler
-'01 grille with '07 GS front emblem
- 55% front tint - 35% rear tint

On to the photos:













-Theo

What happened to the Gettins? I think that was you right?

The current look isn't quite my style but it's got a nice OEM sport look!

I'm interested in what the 01+ grill with 07 GS emblem looks like, but can't see it...

Thanks for all the comments everyone. I need to take better shots of the car and when it's sunny. The steel gray isn't as dark and looks really good in sunlight.
