yea was happy with the wheels, good buy, i want to lower it more (its already lowered) but i barely get in the horrific driveway i have atm, maybe when i move i might lower it(depending on the driveway) and the engine bay i like to keep clean, helps when things spring a leak and makes it easier to source the problem. she gets washed once a week and polished every 3 months.paint is very sunbaked so im lookin for a respray soon and i love the current colour....def one of the nicest reds out there, contemplating a body kit too but i really dont want to lose the chrome moulding in the bumpers

ok ive decided to get an SS kit, the driving lights-front&rear bumper lips-side skirts and boot spoiler. also want to ditch the gay altezzas in exchange for the clear altezza to try and match the boot garnish. still not sure if i want to paint it or not(the garnish that is)..... trying to piece this together before the respray in mid march. so if anyone has these altezza clear style lights(not the ones i already have) and any SS kit pieces lying around let me know. also i want the clear brake light(is it LED?) that goes in the rear wing. any help would be greatly appreciated...feel free to comment or post your own ideas :)

thanks elmaso! that rear lip looks way more classy than a spoiler :) i like the original tail lights but the red (brake light) fades here in Queensland, so i was thinking to avoid that just buy the ones professionally faded...i might get both and swap em around a bit after the kit goes on to see which set suits it better. i also want to color code the door handles and the replacement drivers mirror.

i can get the bezels for the bumper from holden for $21 each and the fog lamps fully assembled with mount glass bulb and wiring and all for $60 each, thats what you mean right? your not referring to the clubsport front bar are ya?

yeah mate! thats the look im after :) except with the front lip also, but i want to keep the chrome berlina strip in the front bar so i will buy the bezels and lamps as well as the lip for the original bar i think.
i kinda like the colour and finish of the rear garnish hence i want to get the clear tail lights and nightshade em up to match, and i try not to look at lexans :p



Edit today i actually had a good look at a LEXCEN, they are fugly as...looks like a camry from the front and whats with those tail lights? ewww
