Well this was unexpected. I bought a JDM Altezza Grill off eBay last week. Got a tracking number that showed it shipped from Japan on 11/26.

I picked it up from the post office TODAY. WTF?? Why can't shipping be that fast all the time?
Oh, and other than it being a little dirty, it is in GREAT condition. No broken tabs, OEM fitment, not even a rock chip!

Now I just need to decide what to do with it... I'm not sure I like the Altezza emblem. It's red which doesn't go with anything on my car and I have Lexus L IS 300 on the rear. I don't like the idea of "Altezza" on the back so I've either got to live with it or take it off.

Does the Altezza emblem come off though? It doesn't look like it to me. I'm gonna check again when I get a chance...

As for the rest of my "to do" list:

Change oil. CHECK.
Install Figs Hood Prop Kit. CHECK.
Take SSR's off. CHECK.
Check rear suspension pieces. CHECK.
Stock rear wheels back on. CHECK.
Get stupid broken bolt out of my engine bay.
Regrease front sway bar. CHECK.
Check front suspension. CHECK.
Stock front wheels back on. CHECK.
Take front bumper off. CHECK.
Go get alignment! CHECK.

Still need to get the broken bolt out... I've just been lazy. Oh well...

Let me know what you guys think I should do with the emblem situation!
