Default Thoughts on the look of this ISC?





Thoughts or opinions? Found it off a CarDomain site. Is it just the angle of it that makes it look like this? I think it makes it look very aggressive and fixes all of the visual problems I saw in this car when it was first introduced... see exhibit A:



Can anyone guesstimate the size of those wheels and possibly what lowering kit was used to achieve this effect, or is it just a very good angle to shoot the car in?

Full disclaimer I do not own an IS250C, but it is a very strong candidate amongst the choices for my next car this summer.

Definitely Hyundai Genesis 19" wheels on F-Sport springs.

That was fknISC808's temp setup before he got his wheels. Not feeling it, I'd rather space out the OEM wheels.

I'm guessing a similar look can be achieved with F-sport springs and the F-sport 19 inch wheels. Yeah the rims aren't that great either, it's just I didn't expect such a massive improvement in visual appeal with just a drop and bigger wheels - I mean, you could do the same to an A5 or a G37 and the result wouldn't be as much of a "wow" moment as with this vehicle.

A drop and a little bigger wheels makes a big difference.

Wow! I forgot about my CarDomain account, Ive been internet hiding for a bit. But, to be exact, car is sitting on AirRunner Airbags and yes wheels are 19" Genesis Coupe track package wheels.

The vert is very dull in its stock form. With little upgrades it can drastically change the look and be the car you want it to be! If you are in the market for one, test drive one and maybe one day we can welcome you into the vert fam.
