Default Trend...

Its kind of funny how its finally picking up a little here on clublexus as far as the VIP styling goes.. I know there are a lot of aspects that people really liked and disliked about this styling but I understood that there is a typical type of clublexus styling as well which kinda gave me the idea of something like a tte lip, ltuned sides, or the l-sportline kit, hre wheels, 1-2 finger gap drop, bbk, and ltuned exhaust or whatnot.. however all of that is kind of progressing as well when i look back at all of this. seems like many people are really pushing towards a more aggressive look and not as conservative.. im glad how this is turning out and also i cannot be happier because of all the potential of different styles our one car model can produce... MOD ON FELLA'S!!!! im gonna have to say that i will be moving on up the ls world and mod the heck out of that.. but i love the gs.. its such a classic car and theres nothing that id rather have than a lexus..

Although other styles are cool......................

VIP Style is more fearless,daring and bold.

I'm in on Fearless,daring and bold

beez43, good luck in the LS world.....I can't wait to get there also.

A big part of VIP style is wheel fitment, too.

I'm happy to see people starting to push the envelope a bit with this. I'm not seeing as many of the "I want my GS to look like all those cool Japanese VIP cars, but I don't want to do any modifications; will this work?" threads... No. Those cars all look cool because the owners went the extra mile to make stuff work.

Nothing easy is ever good. Nothing good is ever easy.

On the other hand, people still think my 20x9.5 +40 and 20x10.5 +40 is aggressive, and are scared to death of buying them. Now that my car is even lower, to me they look positively LOST on the car now. The new set-up is more aggressive.

Reinventing the wheel every day,

Bob

That is so funny man, I also get those "I want super VIP flush to the fender with stretched tires, but mods" calls. Well said though, we are branching out alot, and you are right, I shared a pic of your front wheel on another forum and they said "bah, too conservative" lol

yeah i was really disappointed in the lack of lip but i really wanted these rims bad.. i got these when work started making these a while back and they could not make me a custom offset for these.. but hey, if you think they look good enough to show to your customers, by all means go ahead.. im not worthy.
