:hehe::excl::excl: having just searched through the autotrader again looking for my precious,im once again confronted by those ghastly looking things trying to pass themselves off as Ls400s.The things in question are in a certain garage in Keithley Yorkshire and are customised Ls400s,show cars .Now is it just me that thinks some cars are made to add bits on,like furry dice in ford capris or rear spoilers on imprezas.But not the Ls400 please, its like fitting upvc double glazing into the grand windows of Blenheim Palace. :excl::excl::excl::excl::excl::excl::excl:

I agree, too much mods can make a beautifull looking motor look like it's been put together by the Blue Peter Wana-Be's, but if tastle-fully done can be the difference between another Lexus or "WTF - WOW"

Not sure if everyone else agrees but looking at some of the other brands and the mods done to them, it could either ruin or make the car.

Some of the LS400s with bodykits/20 inch wheels/lowered in the US really look great. Look on www.clublexus.com for some threads about modded LS400s. Theres even a dude who has got twin turbos on his LS400. Imagine that, smokin a M3 with a LS400! www.lextreme.com

give me kelly brook with hobnailed boots - she can drive my lex anytime! :lol:

but i agree with you, apart from getting mine re-sprayed, all i've done is put clear indicators on the front (which is when i discovered the outer ones on each side don't even have bulb holders in them!!)

i'm now in the process of moding the outer ones to take another chrome appearance indicator bulb. other than that, she's standard.

Bison was very close to doing it, there is a place in worcester doing it for around £1500!! it does take up a lot of your boot tho.

Im in process of subtley customizing my LS. Having custom made kit fitted, nothing extravagant, just a mild kit. Hydraulics are being fitted hopefully end of June, after all haven't got a wife so don't need bootspace! Some of the kits do go too far, but done right, the LS can look beautiful, when done i shall post pics and see what y'all think.

Im evenhaving flame kit fitted to both exhausts! Hahaha, Im 26 and did the boy racer thing years ago with my Escort MK2 and Astra GTE (Im an Essex boy, it had to be done!) Now Ive calmed but a little of me still wants to show the Baseball Cap brigade how to do it with class, so Southend cruise, I will be there bouncing away!

Yay!

I've just ordered some Chrome Rad grille attachments via e-bay, which I reckon will be an aesthetic(?) addition to the LS400. But agree on 'too much plastic' ideas as not being 'in keeping' with the car. Perhaps tinted windows, that is, if you want to be stopped by police. (I was once in a BMW 850 in cheltenham. they had my name even before I had the window down! But luckily, I have 'Doctor' on my deatails, which helps! It's a Phd-type Dr, but....it works!)

Anyone need the Chrome details, ask? It's on ebay and rather too long to copy out!
