I got into the whole car scene probably when I was 5 years old and would follow my father to meets with his 65 chevy II. From there Ive always had a soft spot for muscle cars but I grew up going to high school during 97-2001 which means I grew up with Dom and Brian Spilner. My first car was a DA 1990 Integra which i slightly modified and raced. Moved to a couple mustangs until I made my way back to the import scene with the Lexus.
Giulio’s verdict: I’ve got to say that out of all the Lexus IS cars I’ve seen and living here in Japan I see a lot, this has to be my favourite. The Aimgain kit, Wald spoiler, those wheels and that lovely body colour is perfect. I wouldn’t change a thing for exterior looks unless I had a 2 door model with the other sweet kit Aimgain has to offer. Well done on your build so far, sir!
