Nice car dude. Wheels tie in well with the white body and black tint.
Personally Id stick with the VT garnish, but for the love of god if you want the VX look please do it properly and paint the garnish body colour. lol. And get proper VX lights. Not to horrible chrome altezza's.

Oh god I would never let myself keep the VT garnish with VX lights lol. My mate has a VX garnish he can sell me but my dad paints cars for a living, so painting the VT garnish lets me keep the keyhole and save a little $$$ but will the finish be the same as painting a proper VX garnish?

I'd rather cop a swift kick to the face then put chrome/white/clear Altezzas on my baby. Although I don't mind these

Plates arrived today :)

Got a question, ebay has SL king springs and munroe shock/strut stuff package for $645 including delivery and I got a quote from autobarn saying they can do it for $700, should I be able to get them cheaper anywhere else? I actually need new shocks because the old ones are screwed.

Looking very clean! You will never look back when you switch to the VX tail lights.
