Nice work, you're making very quick progress and the car is looking really good.  Neat head unit install, are you going to upgrade any of the other components?

I do like the look of that exhaust. And then I went on their website and read

...with the added benefit of reduced noise levels making it the best choice for more mature enthusiasts.

...which sort of sold it for me.

@rich1068 Yes being of a certain vintage myself, I do agree, when I want to listen to the music the SC430 needs to be in 'refined' mode. 

I've never tried an IS300 but always assumed it must be a bit of a sleeper. My wife had a lovely blue IS200 some years ago and it was a joy to be in, indeed near faultless.

and @superkaribou agree with this too, sometimes there's no substitute for the V8 exhaust note. The silencer looks top quality as does the impressive camera.:cool:

17092407164023096215284287.jpg

While my friend worked on the glass, I took off the badge of the trunk, I just kept the central emblem to make a contrast with the chrome and the black windows.

Excellent stuff. And I assume you're putting a seal on the headlights to stop them clouding again?

Thanks Rob :wink3:

I find coilover and hks catback on demon tweeks with 5% off voucher code. 

Sorry matey i should have worded that differently. I meant how is the ride with the coil overs? Do they handle well? Also are you able to change the dampening stiffer or softer?

Yes, with this Tein Street Advance Z (ex Super Street), you can play with height and damping force adjustement, it's very easy to do.

And it's ready for use with EDFC (Electronic Dumper Force Controler).

The Street Advance is realy good for street use, more hard than oem but confortable for a daily,  but not hard enough for track.

My new wheels setup is : 8x18 ET30 for rear, ET35 for front with 225/40/18 tires.
