Since I enjoy customizing my own rides but not veering off too much away from OEM, with a little creative juices flowing and the DIY in me, here's what I've done to the NX.

- Custom "Lexus" Seat Belt Pads
- Custom-cut 3M door-bottom chrome strip
- 50% front-tinted windows
- Red "Lexus" brake caliper decals
- Custom painted wheels (next post below)

Before/After:



Tints:

Nice job man! :D And I love the name you've chosen. If I got an NX F-sport, I would go with a white one but do black accents and make it a Stormtrooper. Batmobile and Stormtrooper.... yeah....I would make it work somehow. :p
Keep up the good work!

Thanks. Haha, would love to see your future Stormtrooper - I'd photoshop it with Darth NX! :D

Updates!!!
No new mods on Darth NX since the Vossens. Contemplating on RSR Springs but worried about the ride quality and effects on the AVS. But a 1.4 inch drop would look sweet!

For now, it's off with the Vossens to not ruin them in our snowy salty and sand-laden streets.




Not sure if I posted this elsewhere, but here are some pics and a video of our last FSport Sunday event November 8, 2015 with DarthNX in the mix! :D

Nice! FYI, springs have no effect on AVS, only if you went with coilovers. My wife is super happy with her RS-R springs on her GS F-Sport and it keeps AVS engaged.

Heard the same from RSR, but now coming from your real-world experience, it is making it a lot more enticing!
