Default New GS300 owner in Arizona

Hi all. New to club lexus, but not new to cars. I recently bought a 2003 GS300. I guess through some CL research i have a blue marlin pearl GS (with tan interior). Have only seen maybe 1 or 2 others on the site just through some quick searching (always gotta search for car with same color to see how different mods look). This car is to be my daily driver (and i do love it as a daily), but as with any car addict i can't leave anything alone, so i'll try to make it look as "sweet" as possible......for now. I have another car for "Go" but thats a long work in progress. It's a single turbo 2jz vvti in a 1990 300zx, but this thing has much left to do before i can even drive it. Also please understand the GS isn't my main builder, so forgive me if i don't buy the most legit parts for it. enough of the jibber jabber and onto pics.

Pics of my super comfy GS300. I plan to lower it, unsure at this time if i will do simple springs, coilovers, or save up for some air.











The wheels are borrowed from my Z (enkei nto3+m in 18x10.5 all way around, also running meaty tires 265 front and 275 rear, like i said, was for my Z ) I'll wait until the right deal on some wheels comes up, but these are awesome for now (and i had just bought the tires new before the Z blew up ) . future plans for now....lower it, re-tint (some peeling/ bubbly windows), replace door lock acuators (YES i used search!) , and replace a bunch of mushy bushings and a noisy wheel bearing. Glad to be a part of the forum....and lookin to see a bunch of your cool rides!

Congrats on the GS and welcome to Club Lexus

BTW, love the color of your car, is that color OEM? I don't think I've ever seen that color on the GS before.

Thanks. It's my mothers house actually, and thats her IS250 in the garage. i had taken pics of the GS when i had it loaded down delivering boxes to her house (lol, i was too ashamed to post pics with the back of car at stock height, i have the FIGS RCA's for fronts to tame the elevation it was achieving haha).

haha, i've been on many forums so i'm familiar with the orders of operation lol.

I've been browsing your build, and it looks very sharp. I'll try not to steal any of your ideas

Thanks for all the kind words guys!!
