It’s “THE LUX” son!

Hey there whats up fellow fitment enthusiasts. I’m Ojay, one of the newest additions to hellaflush.com and I’m here to introduce you to a very good friend of mine who has one of the sickest 3rd gen Lexus GS350′s stateside. Riverside Ca local, Mike Vo, is one of the first guys i became cool with since I first started building a VIP car. Fully covered up with tattoos from his neck down, you may think Mike is intimidating and scary looking. Take the time time know this guy and get into his world, he’s super humble and down to earth, helpful, and above all a good friend.  If you ever need any 3M services like paint protection, or vehicle wrapping for your car, talk to this guy. “LUX VIP” is his company.

Lets focus on his VIP build now, a 2006 Lexus GS350. The first thing you may notice is his aero kit which is equipped with a Job Design Hybrid kit, one of the only kits in the USA, fog lights and all.

Lexus IS-F inspired dual exhaust? So sexy!

The rollers you see on this fine vehicle is sitting on a set of Phantom Forged Wheels. Attention to detail is a key thing when building cars of any type, and Mike is a guy who gets it done. If you ever see Mike at any meets check out his center caps when he rolls by.  Just Like Bentley center caps, these stay in place and dont spin! His rubber setup is Hankook EVO V12′s 235/30/20 front, wheels measuring at 20×9.5, and rears 245/30/20 slightly stretched on some 20×10.5′s

Now, I bet most of you suspension extremists are now asking the question, “static or air?” Actually both. Mike Vo’s stance is depending on Megan LP’s plus a Phantom Cup kit, giving him both the reliability of coils and the adjustability of bags. Must be nice!

 

a little sketch that Mike forwarded me when they were getting his car fitted at the body shop

Luis from Platinum Vip grafting his custom fender vents. I actually had to ask Mike if his fenders were oem because it flowed with his car so well.

And of course I had to add a shot of him touching up his kit. Unlike yours truly, Mike drives his car everywhere! A daily driven VIP car with a very exclusive kit in the USA? This build is just too gangster, I was surprised this car was never given the spotlight sooner!

Words from Mike Vo:

“I am very happy how my car came out, and I don’t really have any future plans for my ride for now…
A shout out to my wife Lina Vo for understanding how much love I have for cars, JOB DESIGN, D-IMPORTS in UPLAND, Cquence Motorsports, Luis for doing my body work, and Kennedy from Platinum VIP.”
