Stumbled upon this thread on Club Lexus – prototypes and mock ups of the new Wald Executive kit for the 2013 LS. My only gripe about the Wald kit is the rear center piece. It’s designed to look like a functional piece, but it’s actually nothing. It looks kind of cheap when it’s painted because I feel like “something” needs to be there besides just horizontal bumps. Black is the only color that can pull it off cause it’s dark, but on white and silver – it looks unfinished. To me, anyway…
Kind of funny because around this exact time last year I was posting prototype pics of the Varis widebody kit hahahaha
On a side note – I’m not a HUGE fan of the new LS. The styling on the front fascia is awesome with the new grill and the headlights. Other than that – it’s nothing extremely spectacular. When JC was buying his CT, we sat in the LS and it was almost exactly the same as the previous gen. The only difference being the front dash design was a lot nicer with a much bigger nav screen and an analog clock. Most other features were in the same exact spot and did the same exact thing.
The exterior also doesn’t look as big so it gives the impression that the LS could be as big as the GS. Not complaining though – I’d still take a 2013 in a heartbeat.
Lip spoiler. Looks really good when finished especially on the previous gen. It accentuates the body nicely.
Does anyone see it? Is it not unfinished??
Finished product. I wish the sideskirts were like their old executive line ones with the chrome piece coming out the side, but this looks pretty good too.
