Lexus LS460 2013 Conversion

Our LS460 project demo car began in 2013 as a 2010 Sport Package equipped model in Starfire Pearl white paint. Our goal was to build the car for the SEMA show that year. The car was outfitted with the Aimgain JUN VIP body kit with front fenders, roof and trunk spoilers. We also went with the Aimgain 21″ G-Luxe wheels and Airrunner On the Ground air suspension system.

After a successful year of touring several California, Las Vegas, and Arizona car shows, the 2014 SEMA Show was around the corner.  We were honored with the opportunity to take the car again, so the next phase began. We decided on a full custom PINK wrap with dark gray accents. Much of our inspiration came from the new Toyota Crown Hybrid that was offered in pink from the factory.

Once again, after a year long successful show tour, we had the privilege of returning to the SEMA Show for a third year in a row. This time, we went with the biggest transformation yet. We took on the task of attempting and completing the first 2013+ full exterior conversion. Although there are many fine examples in Japan of 07-12 LS460s converted to 2013, there were none, as far as we knew, in North America. To top off the conversion, we decided to have it re-wrapped in a beautiful custom Satin Nero wrap with pink accents.

As you can see, the 2013+ conversion completely transforms the car, it is hard to believe that it is the same car from 2014. Aside from the Aimgain JUN VIP GT body kit which consists of the front bumper, side skirts, rear bumper, front fenders, roof, trunk and hood spoiler, all other parts are OEM.

You can refer to VIPCAR Magazine VOL. 213 December 2013 for the exterior comparisons below.

Navigation and DVD Control Bypass Module from Beat-Sonic (NDS6223EP)

Beat-Sonic NDS6223EP Navigation and DVD Control Bypass Module

Our Price $230 with Free shipping (plus CA sales tax if applicable) (MSRP$239)

nds6223

Beat-Sonic have developed a better solution utilizing our already seamless operation of Navigation and DVD bypass by eliminating the use of an external separate button. The new design bypass module will bypass the DVD system at all times. In addition, the OEM Navigation will be bypassed by pressing a sequence of volume buttons on the steering wheel switch (up, down, up, down). Having the DVD bypassed at all times will benefit the driver to use the turn by turn navigation in the background while the DVD is playing for the passengers.

System: 100% Plug and play kit from Beat-Sonic for allowing use of factory features that would be locked out during vehicle movement.

These plug and play module kits allow override of the lock out system equipped in your factory TV or Navigation/DVD system when the vehicle is in motion. Due to the fact that no modification is needed on the factory harness and this is 100% plug and play, it is easily reversible to the original factory specs without showing any signs that this modification was ever made.

This bypass module is programmable where the override of the navigation lock out can be switched off automatically in a specified time (2, 3, 4 minutes or constant) after the bypass is engaged.

Once the button is engaged, the module tricks the factory navigation system to thinking that it is at a stop and enables the use of all the controls including the navigation address input, POI, blue-tooth contacts, mp3 music select, etc. When the button is depressed, the vehicle will return to its normal state and will take couple of seconds to refresh the correct vehicle location on the map. This module will also bypass the DVD during vehicle movement for car models with a DVD Player and is always active. Navigation may be used in the background while the DVD is playing.
