Few new pics of the SC + new rear visor installed
Saturday, January 28, 2012 10:30 AM
Well I washed the car and finally installed my HIC rear window visor yesterday, so here are a few pics I edited! Wheels are coming soon, I've got the cash, I'm just torn between two... anyway, on with the pics. Comments and criticisms welcome on the car/photos. All shots were taken with my Sony Alpha a300 dslr and edited with adobe lightroom







and if anyone is curious, these are the wheels I'm trying to decide between. both sets will be 19x9.5" et +40 all around (get some 10-15mm) spacers. MMR HR2 or Euortek 03. Any input??

Like the car, still want one myself. And good photos. but why are the ugly rear window visors all the rage with the "higher end" tuner car brands lately? I remember them being put on J bodies and people calling them out (for what they are) as being gaudy and ugly, but on a Lexus it's the cool thing? I never get trends like that....

BBS LM's are far played out I think. I'd go with a nice DD setup on the first set of wheels. IMO

Thanks! I also just found them on another site for $100 less than I originally found them! Plus they have offer a +22 offset too! decisions decisions....

Thanks, I really appreciate it! I've been working on my skills and learning more as I go. I might go back and take a photography class after I graduate (couldn't fit it in my schedule). I also need some lights, better lenses, and a secure location for a proper shoot (I was on private property, and had an 18-wheeler coming down at me when I took the reflection shot, lol )

Thanks, and I think its a JDM/VIP thing. I hate the door window visors, but I liked this one. Just something different. On a spoiler-less car, they look so cool, so I'll probably take mine off eventually..... pic for reference... this is also lowered on 19s, which is the look I want, but maybe not thaaaat low

I know they are, but they are nice, haha. I've always liked mesh... the HR2s are cool and concave, more of VIP style than the LM reps, so we'll see! I'm so torn...

For reference here are 2 SCs on the pictured wheels, one is on bags with an auto couture body kit and the other is on stock springs with no kit and 8.5" fronts, so its hard to imagine an in-between car, haha.



they are the exact wheels I posted (staggered with 8.5" fronts) with BBS center-caps (big no-no...)

It looks good but I think the roof spoiler would look way better if you were wingless.

I like these cars and always have but... the rear window valence/spoiler's look awful. I do not uderstand the point of them on any car. There just pointless and stupid.

Between those two sets of wheels? The first ones. They'd suit the car more.

It does about the same as a factory spoiler or dare I say.... a body kit. It does nothing it purely for appearence.

I think I'm going to put wheels on hold. I think I'll save up more and get Vossen CV3s.... they're my new favorite, and although expensive ($2,000-ish a set). these are 20x9.5 Front and 20x10.5" rears, but they've mentioned making 19"s too, so I might wait and contact the company about 19s...

Exactly. They've been in the back of my mind for sometime, and I think thats why I can't decide between the others I posted. My brain is telling me to be patient and go big. Emailed a rep from Vossen that I met at a Lexus show, and I'm in the loop to be notified if they make 19s
