I've been attending local car shows (Bay Area) for close to a decade now and I think it's finally time to call it quits as it's becoming more repetitive than inspirational. Sure, there are still some great builds popping up from time to time but these are becoming few and far between. This notion that... Continue Reading →
Ever since the second and third generation IS were introduced, the aging IS300/Altezza has slowly faded into history. However, this doesn't mean it's become completely irrelevant in the import scene, not when this JDM RS200 is still around and kicking. This Altezza is probably one of, if not the sickest privately owned example in the... Continue Reading →
I've seen some pretty special IS250 and IS350 before but this Forzato kitted beauty definitely ranks up there as one of the best. My favorite aspect of this car is of course, those aggressive over fenders along with perfectly fitted Work Zeast ST1s. Normally I'm not a huge fan of exposed carbon (excluding exotics), but...

I've been seeing a lot of pretty clean SCs around the web lately, and this Tom's and Wald equipped example is one of them. Photos via MINKARA
Normally, I'm not a huge fan of massive camber on cars, but Lexus' are one of the few exceptions, and this IS350 rocks that massive camber quite nicely. Rocking a custom Aimgain kit along with a set of aggressive Work Meister M1 wheels that fits so snugly on those perfectly rolled and pulled fenders, I... Continue Reading →
When I say "bad", I mean BADASS. This Lexus IS-F from the land of the rising sun is probably one of the cleanest and well-modded street driven example that I've seen. The perfect stance and those well-fitted Advan RZ-DFs over Brembo BBKs really sets the standard for what this car is all about. Form &... Continue Reading →
When you hear people talk about IS300s or Altezzas, you'd most likely think of some sort of VIP'd out modifications, and rarely tracked out versions. So, when I saw this tracked out specimen online, I knew I had to share! Photos via MINKARA
I absolutely LOVE this photo set! The way the shots were taken and the editing really gave these photos a mysterious feel to them. Also, the impressive stance on this Lexus IS really gives the photos that extra kick! Photos via MINKARA Just in case you were wondering what wheels this beauty is rocking.....
Saw this wonderful set of photos online today and thought I'd share them here. These 3 IS' looks absolutely stunning, and the quality of the photos are definitely top-notch! Photos by Lam Le via FLICKR
When it comes to car modifications, a lot of people like to play it safe and go for the tried and proven route. It could range from engine builds, body work, aggressive wheels, or etc. They choose the safe route because, like I said, it's proven to work and/or looks good. But then there are...

I'm gonna keep this post simple and cut right to the chase. This car you see below is quite possibly the best IS in the US. It has this unconventional flare to it that just draws your attention. Of course this is due to the parts used to build this sexy, yet menacing machine. It's... Continue Reading →
This is a car not for everyone, but if you're into VIP, this IS350 might be worth a look. Photos by Andrew Abalos
Lexus' IS trim has grown tremendously in popularity ever since the introduction of its second generation and the top-of-the-line ISF model. The after-market have taken notice of this popularity and has been churning out a host of goodies for the IS platform. This white IS below is a nice example of the endless after-market offerings...

This Lexus LS430 is the epitome of what a proper VIP car should look like; Split atoms, and stretched like a mofo, all while still staying classy.
Keeping things simple and clean, here's a classy Lexus IS300 with a bit of VIP flavor mixed in with a dose of sportiness.
