Nice nice mods, I would be happy with half those parts on my car.

Oh and:

Marble garage floor > anything

Nice looking car. Looks like it's got all the good stuff on it now. I was surprised how nice the cars were in Athens when I was there. Even the taxi cabs were nicer than my car. (and man the girls are top notch too!)

IS300 - it's a Love/Hate relationship.

Valhallab thank you for the comments and i am pleased you had a pleasant time in Greece.

Venticello it took almost two years to bring the car up to this state. It is hard in Europe to find all these aftermarket parts. I hope one day your ride will look like mine.

Ha ha, I just noticed your dash says "compressor" under the mileage. Why does it say that, I mean is it a special gauge setup or just came that way?

Looks really good but why does it say compressor, the charger? I'd have it on there for a different reason.

It says "compressor" because it has a TTE supercharger kit fitted on the car

vtecos, which brake fluid do you use? I'm planning to use DOT4 and EBC yellow brake pads (i've read they are better than green ones for heavier car) on stock brake discs.
