I'm bored so I decided to post pics of my car. I'd like to hear comments, positive or negative..lol

Here's when I first bought it a year ago.








And now a year later:

It has a brand new dashboard, Pioneer AVIC-F9000BT, 2008 ISx50 wheels with Bridgestone Potenza tires, Supra TT front brakes, and Hotchkis springs.










And next project:


Now:





UPDATE 3/29/12
New Project



UPDATE 5/18/12
Got a matching black chrome headlight for the driver side to replace the SD titanium headlight.



Replaced taillights with dark metallic housings



And got a new shift knob lol

Got the UK grill..



Please excuse the dirty car lol. Also working on getting the bumpers fixed and grill painted

Picked up a M85 Torsen Limited Slip Differential for $300 locally.


Painted it, changed seals, and resealed it with OEM seals and FIPG

Looks good so far. How much did the new dash set you back if you don't mind me asking.

Well my boss gave me the dash as goodwill(I'm a tech at a Lexus dealer). So I did not pay for it. And I also got new catalytic converters while the car was still under the emissions warranty. Lol.

EDIT: I think they go for like $400

Your gf is a keeper!! lol.

Springs look great next to the stock IS.

Are you planning to complete the black interior conversion?
I don't understand what you mean as to complete to black interior. lol

I would love to have black interior but I don't think it would look good with the body color.

ah yeah, I figured that it came that way. So, what was the reason for replacing the dash? Other than having a fresh dash to enjoy :D

I agree that your interior color goes best with that exterior color, but the dashboard seems so out of place all black like that! But I think the black interior would still look good, like the tinted windows look good. Just get the lower dash panels in black and that'd probably be perfect.
