Miguel Morales, from Miami, FL, always had a vision for the 2006 Lexus GS300 AWD. Ever since he laid eyes on this model, all he could see was potential and the mods his hands couldn’t wait to get to work on.
When Miguel finally got the keys in his hands, his vision started to flow. Within two weeks, he already had the windows tinted, installed HIDs, vent visors, and a roof rack. Talk about getting down to business, but Miguel wouldn’t stop there!
Over the course of 9 months, Miguel worked hard to create his vision for a daily driver that would turn heads. He added a lip kit and coilovers, but the hardest decision was the type of rims. Miguel wanted an aggressive and unique look and had to pick just the right set of rims to carry his vision. Finally, he found the perfect set of Varrstoens.
Overall, Miguel’s build was simply following where his vision was leading, but I think we can all relate, at least in some way, to Miguel’s obstacle of financing his build. There is always a bigger, better, sleeker part to order, install, and customize. But thanks to http://www.l-tunedparts.com, his friends at Rodspeed, ClubLexus forums, Lexus Boys, Gloss house, and his lovely girlfriend, the vision came to life.
Dream Car: Miguel’s dream car is a Porsche Panamera Turbo because “It’s the complete package with looks and performance.” However, he plans to get to work on a 4th Gen Supra after finishing his Lexus. Future modifications to look forward to include a Fujita Short Ram Intake, Tanabe Medalion Touring Cat Back Exhaust System, Invidia Midpipe, and Artisan Spirits GS Front Grille.
