Looking forward to seeing the new wheels mounted up! Thank you for giving us the opportunity to help - let us know if you need anything from our end

I always get tempted to order rare parts from them but it's so risky.

I remember Revision Audio had some nice stuff. I've bought some smaller items from him and he shipped them. I keep seeing the Tom's kit pop up but I like the OEM one better. There was a really nice Aimgain kit I saw but it costs as much as a second LS.
Central pine sucks they took almost a year before getting me my stuff when I was told 3 months. Sam the owner got all pissy with me because I blew his phone up when they wouldnt answer my emails or phone calls, I had to call them 64 times in a day before I got an answer. Then told me it was arriving via greyhound then fed ex shows up at my door CP is a joke do not order anything from them they will take your money not get your stuff then just refund you 8 months later or just steal your money.

Still need to clean them up a bit more but I'm very happy with how they turned out. Wish I kept my security lugs... if anyone has a set of the 4 Lexus locking lug nuts, the lug tool and the pouch for the tool, please PM me.

Still need a few more pieces before she is complete. Hopefully should be landing a few other rare parts in the near future.

Looks great, Romanova!

Must be the only LS430 in the US with those wheels?

Are you going for the UCF31 OEM Celsior look?

Hopefully the only one outside of Japan with these wheels in the correct size/offset. I have no plans of doing a Celsior conversion, even though everything is readily available. I just like an OEM+ approach to maintain the car how Lexus intended but with a few improvements here and there.

I should add that the Cree 5K LED bulbs in the fog lights are junk. They LOOK amazing but as far as actual light output... very disappointed. Not sure if they work better in inclement weather but I don't drive my car in the rain. Going to swap back to the stock bulbs and see how they look.

Glad you enjoyed it. I wish I had more updates, but I've had my hands full with my son's new ES330. There are still a few things left to do to the LS430... eventually!
