VIP Treatment: Johnee Sou’s Swanky BMW 528i


Red carpets, suede ropes, flashing cameras, and a table for you and your crew with a bucket of that good stuff on ice. Sounds like a glamorous night at an upscale club downtown, doesn’t it?

Allow me to introduce Johnee Sou’s ’08 BMW 528i, a car that can provide this same glamorous feeling while looking much more appealing in the process than a couch and a candle lit coffee table to place your champagne flute.

…And Beyond: Scotty Ramos’ Infiniti G35x (Part II)


If you can remember back to November of last year, the winter months were rolling in, and some of our most prized possessions were beginning to be tucked away into our garages. When we featured Scotty Ramos’ gorgeous Infiniti G35x, we were nothing but impressed; the car was flawless. Well, here we are a little over 6 months later, and after countless hours of bodywork, and meticulous planning, Scotty’s G35x emerges again, and we are floored!

Stylistic Simplicity: The Anonymous Lexus LS460L


Simple, luxurious, and low — the latest car to roll out of Dorbritz Designs, for an anonymous customer, ticks all the right boxes. These three words were key for the owner, as he describes himself as a simple guy with a taste for luxury. This makes the Lexus LS a perfect choice: mature sophistication without being overly extravagant.

Hopes & Dreams: Henry Lin’s 2008 Lexus IS250 (Part 2)


A few weeks ago, we featured Part 1 of one of our favorite Lexus IS250’s to date, owned by Henry Lin from San Francisco, California (Henry Lin’s IS250 Part 1). Amusingly enough, as the feature went live, Henry released his new wheel set up through social media networks such as Facebook and Instagram and the praises flooded the screen. With knowledge of his drop on his new look, we caught up with Henry for a second time to discuss the outstanding changes he has made and the impact it had on his goals and achievements.

Hopes and Dreams: Henry Lin’s 2008 Lexus IS250 (Part 1)


There are moments in our lives where we find ourselves trapped in a haze, dreaming of a goal that seems so far out of reach. And when you open your eyes, you realize that you couldn’t be any further from the vision you so desperately want in front of you. Henry Lin grew up in a small town in Burma country in South Asia, geographically located next to Thailand. With its harsh weathers and equally rough roads, trucks and SUVs ruled the course, and often the trails as you might find them to be. Coming from an area where cars were the last commodity, it wasn’t until Henry moved to San Francisco, California where he knew he would have a shot at engaging the automotive culture.

Dressed in Blue: Jan Martin Villano’s Prestigious 2001 Lexus GS430

VIP Lexus GS

“I have always envisioned my car to be the best I can get it to.” Jan Martin Villanos, known simply as “Martin”, described what he has always conceived of his first vehicle that will carry the signature VIP features. Making the best of something is what Martin can implement on himself. As a corpsman in the U.S. Navy, Martin’s career is one not easily feasible by just anyone. In charge of mobilizing reservists and sending them overseas for their mission, Martin’s work involves making sure whoever is putting their lives on the line for the country are both mentally and physically qualified for the job. In 2006, Martin was based in Atlanta, Georgia and despite his love for his Toyota AE86, he knew he needed a reliable, daily-driven vehicle that would take him wherever the Navy would and combined with his earnest automotive hobby, it resulted in this alluring Lexus GS430.
