:D Way back when (20 years ago! ouch!) I used to look at my beloved Citroen DS23 Pallas, and try to think of mods to 'improve' it. Never could; thought the whole concept was SO good, style wise.

Why take a hint from a MERC??!!

I think you have to study the whole LINE of the car and subtly enhance it.

(NOw; if you had an LS400...which ALREADY looks like a Merc....?)

Paint the wheels black.....? :driving:

:excl::excl: Does you mean you sprayed the WHEELS Graphite?

JUST what I'm considering for my Graphite LS400!! Can't decide if I could get used to it after so long with alloys on cars!

Smooth........or naff? (NO!! Not ME! The wheels!)

:D Thanks a lot for that! I just got two wheels out,(cos previous owner had 'greyed' them, to put alongside the car. LS400 wheels look more solid--bigger flat surface area to show paint/alloy--think it looks good, especially if I can get the wheel refurbisher to match the Lexus paint. It's only important (to me!) when the car's parked, after all. Moving....i'm just a blur?

Would be more obvious on a coloured car; Maroon for example? Or green? Grey shows off the 'L' logo. :)

Personally I prefer the original Silver, I think the grey makes them look dirty and a bit like a cheap restoration job, although i'm sure they look better for real than they do in the photo.

Sidevents, nope don't like them, especially that orange IS with them, they spoil the smooth lines and do look rather copy-cat.
