Yeah, only seen your colour twice. I've seen heaps of white, but only another 3 that's a ZR. Hence, the more reason to mod and look different. Haha

Nice car i like the white very jdm...:)

Thanks mate. Which will look more jdm? Black or bronze? :)

sounds good peter, can't wait to see the mods.

Don't worry mate, you'll be one of the first to know if I have any. ;)

Loving the Osram Diadems! Here's another photo of them and a baseline dyno sheet done at GTCC Club back in July.

Planning to tint my car this or next week - getting quotes at the moment. And need to decide whether to get TRD Sportivo Suspension or get Tanabe Coilover GF's by next week. Thinking about suspension for far too long now! Stubby antenna is on the way. :)

A bit of an update. Stubby Antenna was on a while ago; 3000k foggies came a few days ago but haven't managed to put them in yet. Stock fog bulbs seems so stiff in the socket, maybe another attempt tonight after work. =)

Enjoy! =) It is facing a bit down (stock), so may need some adjustments. Other than that, love driving with it on in the rain, it looks sick!

Thanks guys! Yeah I know, reallyyy need to lower it haha.. <_<

There are a few options I'm considering (yes, still considering):

1. TRD Sportivo springs and shocks - $1500ish

2. Tanabe GF Coilovers - $1500ish

3. King lows (keep stock shocks) - $500ish

4. Teins Coilovers - $2500ish without shipping

Hmmm..

Nice work dwee! Get 'em on! I reckon you should install them with the stock shocks, wear them right out and then replace them. It's 1 - cheaper, and 2 - you won't need to make space in your garage for the stock shocks. :P
