I like the altezza grill and the wheels look great finished in a dark colour (gunmetal?)

Looks like it may need a polish tho' :winky:

It does look damn nice in black but its going to be fun keeping it clean!

can you get tinted wing repeaters? (indicators)

It's not ex-non-LOC. It used to be FrankOG's from the EuroLOC ;) (EDIT, Sorry, too late :blush: already been said)

But yes, there are even people who e.g. put in 1G-GTE engine in an IS200 and not on the Forums.

Cheers Cruisinkev, see ya on EuroLOC ;)

Nice car... :)

Lovely alloys.....

but.............

I think you need wider rubber on the back, those tyres look very stretched... This would no doubt make them rub with that offset , so maybe those rims aren't for that car... IMHO ;)

thx!!

yeah thats right! the rims got "wrong" offsets (I used them on a FWD car) - the front are 8x18 with offset 38, the rear got 9x18 offset 38. but I don't want to sell these rims, I like em and I think they look good :P ;) :)

because of the lowering its not possible to put wider tires on the rear rims.. I got 225s on em, perhaps 235 or even 245 will fit.. but not wider.....

Think one of the lads on here, Anees, had his alloys machined to get the offset closer to spec, he's been running around in those now for a couple of years with no problems!

Other option is to roll the arches / cut the inner bit down a bit?

Those alloys do look great on the car, if you can't get the existing ones working then get a set that are the right offset in the same style, would love a set like that for my Aristo!

Looking great mate, some fantastic choice in mods there :D

Are you going to do the same on the headlights as you've done with the rear lights? It will look amazing like that :)

The car sounds nice too - forgot how nice the IS sounded with the SC and TTE airbox :)
