that's a pretty car. you can use the search function to find all the info you are looking for.
i also use google and input clublexus as a keyword along w/ what I'm searching for

Borla exhaust tips, removing the black paint from the grill (it's chrome underneath!) and an intake are the 1st steps I would take w/ that beauty.

I'm not a fan of the VIP look myself, looks like you got window tint, 20' rims, good tires. I'd say exhaust for a more performance sound inside and out. You could stance it with bags, but coil-overs are probably all you need to sit lower with your rims. I'm not a fan of the body kit it looks a little dated to what you see on the road now. if your car just sat lower with rolled fenders it'd look sick. Maybe smoke the headlights and taillights since you got a white and black concept going. Interior idk what you got going on but I think VIP pillows look bad I'd just find some white or black accent pieces. It's already a luxury car, use your money for other luxury items like a vacation lol.
btw, OEM Spoiler would look good, I've also seen a GS 300 with supra side mirrors.

Just got a 2002 GS 300 myself and need to tint the windows and fix my sub. looking into seeing if I can reprogram or update the navigation system in mine.

good luck on the build

Autofashion in San Diego can get you the mode parfume kit. See the attached link, mode parfume is listed on the page. The Regalia kit is my favorite kit available for the car but not in my budget
http://www.autofashionusa.com/

Bags cost more but would be preferred if you really want the car low. My car is on coils and its a pain sometimes and it isn't super slammed.

Platinum VIP in Irwindale could take care of your paint and body needs. I don't know of any shops in Long Beach although I'm sure there are some good ones down there.
