History and Shoutouts
Marvin: "I bought the Black Sapphire IS second hand back in 2009.
The mods began in my mind even before I owned it.
My very first mod was simple, drop springs and 19" Varrstoen 222 wheels with an OEM GFX lip kit. A year and a half later I got bored with the look. In 2011, I switched up the paint to another Lexus color called Brandy Wine Pearl. I also sold my wheels and drop springs to get better suspensions, BC coilover dampers were then installed and I bought another set of wheels.. Varrstoen 112 also 19's, not exactly top of the line but the underdog always get the votes! Anyway this time around I wanted that hellaflush stanced out presence, low offsets with drastically stretched tires. It didn't last for long though due to all the scrapes on the fenders, getting scuffed by the wheel's binding and the tire camber wear. I drove it stock height for a little bit. Flash forward to three years later.. in 2013, I did a total make over and went with the VIP inspired scene. I changed it all.. the paint job, body kit, wheels, air suspension, and the interior.
And that's what you see right now."
