LOL....airbag projectiles! I was at a weekly car show and parked with a bunch of Lexus's. Now it makes sense, as they were VIP. I couldn't figure out why they had headrest pillows and curtains and tassels..lol. Now it makes sense. The style is definitely interesting. My sportx didn't fit into the VIP look...it was like the tuxedo t-shirt...it was formal enough to be there, but ready to party!

Your right about that. My understanding only the big wide body sedans were considered true VIP. That is why they came up with VIP Style for people like me.

I have only seen a couple IS pull it off. I thin I have only seen 2 good ones. Hopefully I can make it three.

that's correct about it originating for big body cars only. It was never meant for small sedans, that's not the history of how vip got started.

Being said is300 is definitely not meant to be a vip car, but in shows it ends up in that same car class sometimes. Not really fair to group them together, ESPECIALLY when you didn't vip your car out.

regardless, keep us updated on your progress!!!! more modded sport xs the better

Nice parts dont make a nice car, paying to have pros do every little thing and never touching it yourself or driving it does.

I know Miguel's got some surprises...can't wait to see it.

It's crazy how there was like no (as I know) kitted Sportcrosses and now within the last year we have I think 4-5.
