Suspension wise you’re lucky shouldn’t be too difficult to find as many of the items are still available from Eibach. The L-Tuned exhaust pops up for sale from time to time. The body parts may be darn near impossible to find as everything was discontinued and are very rare. Good luck and have fun as you’ll probably have to piece everything together separately to complete the entire kit.

LTuned sways are exactly the same as Eibach sways. The springs also are Eibach, you could easily get those without getting an L-Tuned.

unfortunately authentic L-Tuned body parts are next to impossible to find...have you considered replica L-Tuned parts?

or you could entertain me with offers and buy my car =]

I am most concerned with the feel/ride of the car. So I would definitely consider replica body parts. As for the springs/sways, if I buy them from Eibach, will they ride just like an authentic l-Tuned would ride? Any adjusting necessary?

Is that all I really need suspension-wise? The Eibach springs and sways?

With respect to suspension. Yup.
That's all you need. Nothing needs to be adjusted...you do have the option of selecting the stiffness of the sway bar. Eibach/L-Tuned Sway bars have 3 holes you can hook up to...inner ones = more stiff...outer = less stiff

Recently acquired an L-Tuned Interior Dash Emblem.
Part Number: L-Tuned Badge - Interior #COTRD-05100-30


and found a set of L-Tuned Exterior Emblems for the GS300/400 from Australia in storage.
This set is distinctly different in packaging than the USDM version and one interesting info bit is that the rear emblem does NOT come embossed (The two side emblems are exactly the same as the USDM)



Check it out

I disagree, I think $1500-$2000, problem is there not easily obtainable, so it can be hard to get a good idea of price, but the last two I know about sold for $1600 and $1800.

i bought mine new, at the time that was the price for both neo and l-tuned bumpers. but depending on the insurance company and if you show proof of recites they might cover it.

I wanted to revive and add to this great thread. Here's the manual to the TRD fogs.










A couple of important things to note. If you check the bulb cover, there are two different numbers on there. On mine, one had 08591-00045, which meant this was the RH fog. The left was part number 08591-00047. You can also see this in pic 1.

There are 4 different colored lenses on the TRD fogs.
Clear

Hierro, which is the one with a blue hue. These are usually seen on the Altezza Gita JDM bumpers.

Multicolor yellow/"rainbow"

Yellow


The foglight-height output can be adjusted easily by the screw right under the bracket. Seen here in this pic, bottom left

Bumping this thread.

Anyone know what kind of double sided tape is used on the L-tuned spoiler? (regular 3M double sided? 3M Foam tape?, thickness? etc)
Is adhesion promoter required for that as well?

I hope someone who has installed theirs can give me some feedback. Looked everywhere
