    then, finally, the car arrived in Australia, I went and picked her up, and parked her in the driveway...

      and then, ofcourse, the damages started to become apparent, that I was never told about...

        but, the show must go on!!! so, I stuck the rims on it, which I bought for the car... some people love them, some like them, some hate them, what about you?









        photo shopped lower, this is about the ride height I'll be aiming for when I get the aftermarket suspension... also looking at a body kit, to replace the damaged bumpers...



        CHEERS FOR READING/LOOKING AT THE PICS!!!

          there's always a special spot in my heart for toyotas.... that thing is just freaking cool. I like the rims... but i agree with you, that thing's gotta lose a few inches in ride height... you shouldn't ever have to see the tops of the tires ;-)

              total cost of the car, landed in Australia, complied, to meet Australian design rules, registered, and on the road, was around $AU10,000... which is around $US8300...

              the rims, I got second hand, for $AU800 with tyres new, they would have been $2100 WITHOUT tyres!

                no body kit, go with a smooth lined lip kit. Or some people prefer the VIP style... not my personal favorite, but some cars look good with it. Not a fan of the wheels, possibly because of the 4x4 look right now.

                The aristo has the 2JZ? didn't know that :x oh, and some of that damage could have been from the shipping, you never know. But most of it looks like the seller just didn't tell you about it

                  no, I insist, it needs a kit...

                    hmm, that's not that bad of a kit actually, as long as it's not an aggressive body kit that takes away from the lines of the car then it's definitely okay in my book. Just don't like that exhaust

                      Nice sleeper. I personally like the wheels. After you lower the ride height, it will look great.
                      Unfortunately imports cars get easily damaged. My first car was an import mazda 323. I was forever finding little things wrong when I first got it. Just the way things are I suppose.
                      Never let the truth get in the way of a good story

                        yeah, I dont like that either.

                        was considering two oval tips, one each side, but decided on these rear mufflers:

                        one per side, ofcourse

                        just ordered the intercooler this morning

                        mufflers for the full exhaust system will be ordered soon aswell!

                        went out drag racing last night...

                        car did alright... got beaten by most other turbo cars, but then, mine is completely stock, and weighed 200 - 400kgs more than theirs! lol

                          bleh, before you do that, you should definitely get it lowered

                            nah, I'm going with performance before appearance...

                            the $1300 I'm looking to spend on coilovers pays for the intercooler kit, plus the parts for the exhaust...
