We’ve been trying to shoot James’ car for weeks now but our schedules were just not working out, until recently when James rolled up to one of our meet & greets. One of our newest photographers Matt Saatchi just happened to be there and was down to shoot it after the meet. As a matter of fact James asked us if we were interested in featuring his friends Infiniti M45, and we gladly said yes. Be on the lookout for that within the next couple of days, but for now we’ll just throw in this teaser below.

James has been in the VIP scene for years and his GS has gone through several stages, from running a crazy -15 camber on his old setup (SSR Agle Strusse) to it’s current “more mellow” look. He is currently sitting on these clean 19″ Kartier Forged Carerra’s in 19×9 (-25) & 19×11 (-11) with a 6 inch lip in the rear. Nothing really mellow about that now that we think about it. As you’ll see in the pictures below, the rear fender work on this car is amazing. The fenders have been shaven and pulled to perfection, and when the UAS bags with kyb-gr2 shocks are aired out his fitment is absolutely perfect. However, since James is a perfectionist he still has some work to do to the front fenders/camber he says.

You can check out rest of his mods below, but even after seeing the full mod list and these great photos, nothing does the car justice. You just have to see it in person to really appreciate it. It really is a work of art.

While Matt didn’t get a chance to take any pictures of the interior, you’ll just have to take our word for it when we say that is screams luxury. As we said earlier, you are going to have to see the car in person to appreciate it, and while you’re at it make sure you peek on the inside. We’ve included all the mods above and below for you, but one thing that stood out the most was the table. James actually runs his own business making these, so make sure you check out his site if you’re interested in purchasing one for your VIP inspired ride. The link is included on the bottom of the feature.

We’ll wrap this feature up with a couple more pictures of James’ ride and take a minute to thank James for his time and honor of letting us shoot his awesome ride. We’re definitely looking forward to whatever he may have in store for us because we’re sure it won’t disappoint. We also want to make sure we thanks our local photographer Matt Saatchi for shooting this ride and the white Infiniti that we’ll be posting very soon. As always, if you’re anywhere in the Bay Area and think your car has what it takes to be on Stance:Nation make sure you shoot us an email right now!
I wanted to take the time to thank Matt and Elvis for the feature on the site, I appreciate the time you guys have taken to show the car and the many new things coming out for 2011 ~! ( James )
