Default Finally got some pics and my introduction to CL

Hey guys,

I bought my first GS back in January. It is a 2000 GS400 Platinum with 101K miles on it. I spent the last 6 months catching up on some neglected maintenance items as well as doing some mods. I did the full 90K service, lower ball joints, rotors and pads, and some other items. As far as mods go I added the rear trunk lip spoiler, roof spoiler, tinted the windows, GReddy front lip, BC Racing coilovers, 20 inch Donz Bugsys with a machined/black finish, window visors, chrome B-pillars (which I know not everyone likes on here), LED inners and outers, etc. I've been posting on the forum here and there but haven't ever introduced myself so here's my car and my introduction.

Future mods include exhaust, better fitment on the wheels, and full audio build.

Let me know what you think!! Suggestions are appreciated! THANKS

The car looks very nice. Those Donz blend in real well with the theme of your car. Very clean and subtle mods.

Very nice. Like Sleeper408 said the wheels match everything else real well. Nice work!



Now about the chrome pillars...All the lines on the car flow from front to back giving the car a sleek look. The designers purposely hide these pillars by making them black and not body color.

So to make them pop with chrome adds this big shinny out of place vertical body line that disrupts the visually appealing horizontal flow of the cars body lines. This is why it is such a unpopular look. Ok I m done.
