Awesome stuff man. Seriously great work.

Putting stickers on fake wheels to pass them off is the same as a girl rocking a fake Gucci or a Lamborghini kit car or some fake Jordan's. If you can't afford to play then rock the lower end brands and stop playing yourself.

Let me just start by saying 'that is one beautiful piece of machinary you've got there my friend'! IMO I think you have to have one of, if not the best IS out right now.(okay enough ass grabbin) I'm still savin up to buy an LS3 and hopefully within a few months I should be there. I have no idea who's going to install it for me but, I guess i'll figure all that out when the time comes. I'm from AZ and it's next to impossible to find someone or a shop that doesn't look at me like I have three eyes when I ask em about an IS300/LS3 swap. If you could, would you let me know what the specs are on your wheels man. I can see there 18's but what width and offset are you running? Thanks!

Love this car man!
You have inspired me to attempt this swap later on down the road.
+Rep dood!

Too many people try to impress others and build their car to what they know someone will like.
You lose sight on what you like, when you simulate your likes around others dislikes.
