hey everyone!

so i just joined up, i thought i get some photos up and see what you think.
i picked this up at the end of last year as i needed a more practical daily driver, and this suited the bill perfectly, well.. apart from fuel economy :lol:

its a 99 rs200 z edition.
43,000 miles, full service history from japan, and lexus service history from previous owner in the uk.
mods include:
volk te37s
hks coilovers (soon to be replaced by meister r items as they are abit noisy)
hks cat back exhaust.
vertex front bumper, side and rear skirts.

the car is pretty much spot on in every way, a few marks on the fibreglass, and the coilovers are a bit noisy, but soon to be sorted.. other than that its spot on and turns heads where ever it goes.

anyway heres some pics, these are the only ones i have atm, the engine bay and interior are standard and clean:

might try and sit it a little lower with the new coilovers, but its a daily driver and at the moment it dosnt scrape on anything.

let us know what you think!

cheers

Lloyd :D

nice altezza.
i think this is the first one i have seen with lower mileage than mine.
mines on 47k with the majority of them being km`s.

i think i have seen this as well, around Christmas time i think on some random road when i was collecting parts for a ps13.

thanks for the comments guys!

yeh i do live near southend airport as it goes!
the milage on the clocks shows just over 50k, but some of that is km's, but i have the import documents to prove the milage so its all good!
all ive done is given it a good service since ive had it, and the coilovers will be fitted as soon as i can.

so had the meister r europas on for a week now and they feel great, its running pretty low but it is not too stiff.

I have meister r's on both of my cars now and have been very impressed, and jerrick who runs the company is a good bloke to talk to for advice.
