really should have done this along time ago but have an hour :roll:
bought it about 3 years ago pretty standard with lightweight flywheel and a set of ssrs that i regret selling for a song :cry:
always wanted one in black but wasnt gone on the white wheels.
Image
so got myself a rear and front strut brace
Image
Image
pic from japfest.
Image
ssrs that were on it
Image
changed the ssrs
Image
planning to respray those wheels in the future.
got a nice toms badge for the steering wheel
Image
got a lip spoiler for the boot
Image
got eyebrows and blue zenons but was never gonna be happy with those yellow headlights. lets the front of the car down so changed them for shiney new ones genuine toyota, dark gold types, expensive but worth every penny
Image
and finished the front with a vertex bumper.
Image
next went at the engine and added a cusco air panel, skunk2 rad cap, autobann rad hoses
Image
got the rocker cover sprayed and did a bit of polishing
Image
got a double din headunit tv dvd etc..
Image
custom and performance 09
Image
some smart disc holders and visor that has come off due to nct fail :roll:
Image
few of the garage pics
Image
Image
idea maybe?
Image
changed a few bulbs in the clocks for the red look
Image
on the way are 10 new bushes anti roll linkage new shocks cheers nick!
and just arrived today is something iv been looking out for, for quite a long time now. a full leather interior electric heated seats from a 05 is200 in absolute mint condition!! will get those pics up when in.

looks good, not a fan of the wheels or the potential half red look though.

that show photo's a rarity - models that are actually attractive at a car show :lol:

no. being thinking about the wheels for a while now and i have these options:
respray existing alloys? thinking gunmetal gold if that makes sense!
change and get new 17 alloys? cause at the ride height, 18s are gonna be worse, not to mention retracking, adjustments etc.
keep them the way they are? cause the missus had to sign for the leather interior the other day :oops:
change and get 18s? cause if i was spending major money on wheels it would have to be 18s
:?
to be honest i think id rather invest in upgrading the brakes.

why upgrade the brakes wen theres no power? waste of money

save up an get decent wheels and the car will look so much better!

wheels make an brake a car!
