I ran across this simply clean S2k and I knew it would fit in just perfect on here. Derek Wheeler sure does have good taste when it comes to perfecting a car. But the car didn’t just become what it is. Derek has taken the car through multiple stages to get it where it is. It would be a good stopping point because to me, the car sits perfect in it’s current state. Also to mention, this month marks his three year anniversary with the car.
The full OEM body add-ons really keeps the car simple and too the point. Giving the car it’s impressive stance are Megan track coilovers along with Megan rear adjustable toe arms. The Work Cr-Kai wheels are what make the car in the 17×8 +42/17×9 +38 fitment.
Derek really made a good choice by choosing the Cusco 5pt roll bar for the S2k. The beauty of this car doesn’t just show on the outside. Inside the car is running a Mugen titanium sports exhaust with Invidia 63mm test pipe. Mase Engineering gets credit for tuning the car on a VAFC2. Derek says he loves how the car sits now after going through 2 different hardtops, 4 exhausts, 3 intakes, and many other parts. I will have to say, please keep the car as it is, wouldn’t like it any other way. Photo credits to Derek Wheeler himself.
So when everybody thinks of Lexus, they think of crazy VIP styling with a set of rare wheels and such. Sometimes it pays off to be a little different. This Lexus IS wears a set of Work Emotion CR Kai wheels, which are powdercoated white. I have to say the color combo is perfect, and the car is fresh as hell.
