There's nothing wrong with VIP... but the IS300 is not really a VIP car. VIP Lexus models would be the GS or LS.vip styling is not welcome here, since the whole basis of it is being slammed with camber and flush wheels.
If you are trying to make a VIP-esque IS300... it would help if your car was black or atleast GGP.Gathering ideas for a future project..
Other then the obvious, widebody, dubs, tints, slam... What other stylings would you consider to be VIP, or think look fit on a VIP styling car.
I think you're thinking of those DUB cars... VIP is a very distinct style, not just anything baller.VIP=BALLER same shit
Incorrect.ya a system would be a definite must i would agree. and vip styling is whatever you want it to be..
You are right about people making fun... and you are right about being able to put VIP styling elements on a car that's not a typical VIP platform. However... sometimes it can just look silly... as if the car is a poseur trying to be something it's not. The IS300 is just too compact. I don't think I've ever seen an IS300 that could properly capture the VIP spirit. Have you seen a VIP Honda S2000 before???If anyone really bothered to read the original post the guy is asking what kinds of things are considered to be VIP STYLING ITEMS.
As for the haters saying that ALL VIP MUST BE A LARGE CAR. I have a buddy of mine with a VIP STYLED xB. Its not my personal favorite but he is happy with it and this poster has an idea of where he wants to take HIS car. So stop hatin and if you can help a bro out, do so. Jeez, with these level of hate it feels like a honda board instead of an IS Community.
From the things my bud has done to his xB and the things he has talked about wanting to do, this is what I consider to be VIP STYLE Accessories.
Aero Kit, and not just any lip kit. VIP Style is about clean lines than enhance the stock body lines of the car. Doesnt have to be wide body but for the lip you probably want on the wheels you might want to modify the fenders and be prepared for rubbing during certain occasions.
Coloring, Dark color with chrome accents are very very common. If you have a lighter color my preference is darker accents. I wouldnt try to do a multi color like a green/blue or a candy color (but a pearl white would be acceptable in my book)
Interior, I cannot emphasize the word clean enough on this aspect. You cant have anything on the inside that doesnt serve a purpose. Common things are curtains with little jewels hanging from the end, dark tint, CLEAN interior lighting, both over head and foot well. I would wrap the headliner in suede (and you can search on that its been done and is nice AND clean). Do NOT have extra gauges or anything that could be ricer. Leather or high quality suede interior.
Engine, very minor mods such as a deep toned exhaust and like a chrome Joe-Z style intake with TRD filter. I would disable the DRL's while you are in there AND do the fog mod so you can run fogs without your headlights. If you have entirely too much money or time on your hands I would have certain parts of the engine polished and remove the plastic cover.
To me, VIP styling is supposed to look factory level clean. Its not supposed to scream to Jack "I dunno nothin about cars" Schmidt that its modified. It should stand out but not scream modded. Its a fine line. Good Luck and let us know how your project goes.
