Default Spotted: F Sport Parts for 2013 GS

Looks like Lexus is testing out the TRD Japan/F Sport Parts on a 2013 GS F Sport in Liquid Platinum.

What do you think?

it's okay, however it doesn't garner an "OH DAMN" reaction from me. IMO it seems as though it was a budget call.

^ I agree. Stock F-Sport looks better.

This kit doesn't really flow with the car, especially the rear! Doesn't look right with those quad tips either. I say dislike

Exhaust tips look way too small, and that rear skirt does not look like it was deigned for that bumper. For example where the rear skirt just about meets the corner reflectors.

The front lip in the mockup looks "OK" to me. Waiting to see the real thing.

Makes the rear look way too busy.

i like everything but exhaust... too japanese for me, looks like 90's turbo car. I would have preffered two bigger pipes, one on each side.

Not the best picture i agree, but keep in mind that it still has the stock wheels and suspension.

We are discussing the back of the car. The height and wheels will not change how the skirt and exhaust looks.

IMO - When you remove the stock exhaust bumper garnish (not sure what those are called), it makes the car look more and more like a Camry.

IMO - I think this picture would get different reactions if it was a complete setup. Body/Suspension/Wheels

I spotted this last night at Victoria Gardens in Rancho Cucamonga, CA. Someone had the TRD Japan F SPORT kit installed on their new 2013 Lexus GS F SPORT. The car had new dealer plates from Newport Lexus. Since we've seen it in silver, here's another look at it in Starfire. They had every exterior piece except the wheels and of course the suspension. The kit fits like a glove of course but the black rubber protectors don't really work well with a lighter exterior. There should be a light gray version for lighter cars and black for darker cars.
