Yeah, its a 2018 Lexus GS F. He just got all the aero install so he wanted to do a photoshoot. Hes got some more photos on his Instagram as well: https://www.instagram.com/rated__f/?hl=en

I'm also seeing either coilovers, RSR super downs or the F down springs on there as well. I'm not a big fan of red cars, but I'm digging his. Nice ride. Gonna scope his insta.

I've noticed Lexus (stock) usually has very minimum and well balanced wheel gaps, and the wheels also sit more flush than BMW at-least. Even on AWD models. Or is it just me?

Great colors, composition, and detail, Ed. Well done. It seems 24-105 is FL magic in any brand.

Not the case on the newer models, unless we are talking about RC-F's (especially the track edition - my heart skips a beat just typing it) or the LC500. This is my second IS350 and my Gen2 sat about an inch lower stock than my Gen3 does. It's known issue with these model that ultimately causes inner tire wear that results in 20k mile life tires. The only way to fix the set up is to drop it about an inch and half with a .05 toe-in. This squares the tires up properly on the road and prolongs tire wear. I'll be putting RSR downs and wheel spacers on mine in the spring to fix this and make it look meaner. I'm sure CAI and exhaust would probably fix this issue as well.

Interesting, so older Lexus models sat lower with a better stance/less wheel gap? Why would they mess it up? I hope BMW wakes up and does something about the xDrive wheel gaps Also how would CAI and exhaust fix something like this?

I think they tried to market to soccer moms with the Gen4's. They also made the car wider, longer and the back seat bigger. The back seat on the Gen3's was basically for show; unless you were a contortionist, no one is sitting in the back of one of those comfortably. CAI and exhaust wouldn't fix the tire wear or wheel gap, I was being facetious to justify spending the money on it. It's kinda funny for a car to be a quick as this one is and makes absolutely no noise when you get on it in sport+ mode.

haha, got it, you mean the sound issue I wasn't too happy with my stock 435ix exhaust either, even though it wasn't too bad, much content after installing the MPE. I do plan to install Bilstein B8 shocks with Eibach springs after this winter to get rid of the wheel-gap, it's tolerable in the rear but no so much in the front.
