wow, car looks stunning man.

So im not sure, is this not considered traditional VIP because its not blacked out and does not have demon camber? I'm not too sure why this isn't really considered VIP :/

It's a VIP platform and is VIP styled....a little more sporty though. Some hardcore VIP folks will say it's not on air....not low enough....not aggressive enough.....not enough camber....blah....blah....blah...

i know what your saying though... sometimes it drives me nuts, cuz original vip was all about being clean and classy, but by today's standards if you don't have 4" wider fenders molded/welded on and 12" wide with 6" lip wheels and at least -6 camber then guess what,, you's just ain't vip then yeah¿

today's stuff is kinda getting tired to me though, went to a little vip car show here in okinawa japan two weeks ago and some of the stuff was not my flavor at all. all my favorite cars were just classy, low, clean, with mods that matched the car, not just random stick on parts but ones that were thought out.

I like what used to be called EXE style which has cleaner lines....more of a factory look but more aggressive. Once you distort a car beyond the point where it's recognizable, that's where I tend to back away. It may be others cup of tea, but the whole "poke" ..... "hella" ...... "stance" ...... bullcrap.

I tend to agree with what you all are saying. Before, there was VIP, EXE and then there were VIP Style. Now, VIP is so generalize. You have kids calling their Corolla with a Fusa...VIP.

Nowaday, to make is easier for me, I see 3 category...

VIP: Traditional platform cars
Aggressive VIP: Oni camber, poke, blah, blah, blah
VIP Style: BMW, Benz, Accord, etc that like to fix their cars to resemble a VIP car

It's a Final Konnexion that me and the wife modded to look like the new generation.

We cut and molded the front bumper....




We also modded the rear bumper to fit the AMG exhaust and LED's...






We also had to widen up the front fenders to fit the wheels that I ordered in the wrong offset....



Putting my wife to work......
