Pimpin ain’t easy according to R Kelly ………. I’m sure the owner of our latest feature Fraser Mac would disagree
His Lexus Gs300 is proof you don’t need to ball out to build a pimp ride
Fraser isn’t a stranger to the pages of Minty.Fresh, his last car was featured in the Civic Bro shoot we did last year
So what made Fraser make the switch from Kanjo race car to VIP Pimp?
Fraser has always had a hankering for the VIP scene, it made sense for him to go for some luxury driving after the super stiff Civic he owned before
And the fact you can pick up GS’s for cheap made it ideal
This particular GS is a 3 litre N/A 2JZ-GE equipped 300, it rocks an auto box too but that’s all part of the pimp value, Fraser wanted something to pimp about town in
The GS couldn’t stay standard though, truth be told in standard trim the GS is a bit boring
So plans were a foot the day he got it to get the car to a comfortable position
Following on from the Civic Fraser knew and liked the Meister R coils, so first step was buying a set for the GS
The car got the much needed lows but Fraser knew he needed some rims too
Originally he set out for some ballin deep dish rims but the cost’s were far too high, then he came across a set of super cheap Enkei’s
They were 17″ but he got an other he couldn’t refuse alas the wheels didn’t suit the car and looked too small, so it was back to the drawing board until he got offered a mega deal on the BBS rims you see in the pics.
18″ in diameter, 8.5″ up front and 9.5″ in the rear the car looks super tyte
The rest of the exterior has pretty much stayed the same but Fraser has added a TTE front lip and removed the rear spoiler
Engine normal for now!
But Fraser has added a custom Wallace Performance catback to the car that gives the GS a deep growl
Interior wise the GS OEM set up is quite luxurious, Fraser has added a D.A.D Shifter and Pioneer headunit for the beats
He also reps the blogs with pride!
Whats next? well Fraser plans on replacing the BBS’s with something even wider and double as pimp but the car still grabs attention where ever it goes
Just make sure you get a glimpse of it at the local shows or on the streets!!
