Hey guys...this is my first show-off thread....slowly making progress cuz im constantly changing my mind on what i want to do

this is a 2006 type s...bought it from a lexus dealer with 1 owner and 41k. Now after 2.75 years it has 112k :( .... was putting 30k a year commuting to work but i now live closer so miles will be a lot less per year :)


First thing i did was install fog lights


Then i put HID's in


Next was an AEM V2 intake


Then HKS hi-power exhaust

I get my pics from photobucket and I paste them with the code it makes them bigger so I dont have to click on each picture to view.

Also cool which member was that? Im thinking about buying off of a member, would be way cheaper.

nice and simple. could use more low but i understand why you went with aspec with all the miles you put on the vehicle
Yea I had progress springs which put it a little lower and was a good drop in my opinion but where I lived at the time the roads were shit...but now I'll be buying progress coils
