I can't recommend the Fortune 500s enough ... the Aurion Sportivo felt bumpier than the Chaser lol..

Ah THIS was the feedback I was waiting for. Did you specify different valving/spring rates?

Sick of the D2s on my car already, thinking about ordering the 500s but haven't got any decent feedback except from the Sydney distributor.

Tats you sexeh hound you - I asked for 12F/8R :) that was it. It took 5weeks to get them though but well worth it.

I'd buy them again :) - after a bit of driving, very comfy - my old man drove it back from the tire shop and he asked if I had removed the coil overs lol..

And today it got a set of new rear tires - 245/40s Falken Ze912s. Quiet tires, plenty of grip - no testing in wet conditions yet and car feels lighter to drive.

The pics are deceiving, obviously the phone camera doesn't show you the fine dust particles.. but I gave it a good wash and now its all clean and parked smile.png

While I accept there is a 2% difference in the rolling diameter front/rear. ABS is fine and no dramas in driving. I'm a fool for not having listened to the OG JZX owners sooner, in going 225/40 upfront - makes heaps difference !

Jesse package will be here in a weeks time. That was the red stitched steering wheel, c/f look rear number plate surround and c/f look cluster surround.
I'm feeling the boot might be lacking a lil something so next will be a c/f bootlip (this should be real c/f - Jesse will hook me up as usual)

A forum member will be helping me change my vvti solenoid. Fk I love JZX forums in that aspect, community spirit +++

Thanks to a prominent JZX forum member I got some more pointers for maintenance bits to replace.. So that resulted in the following order:

You'll notice I got myself a new badge for the grill, it's been looking odd without it. The other plastic bit is a new panel for the drivers side power window panel (yes they're plastic.. with carbon look lol..)


I've come to the conclusion I don't like the amp fuse bolted on the battery holder arm.. so got a replacement to relocate amp fuse .. can you believe a mere $4.71 for new radiator top brackets fwoar !!


Sometimes, no joke - I'll look back at the part descriptions and be like huh wtf was that part.. but it makes sense once they arrive.

Next update once I get the new parts.

I am still waiting for my Amayama bits, how long did your's take to arrive?

When did you order them? They had a shutdown for a couple of weeks last month that might have slowed things a tad

Now
I'm happy with the spark plug valley, really wish I could just reach
inbetween the injectors and clean that area out too >.<

While removing covers noticed how the following pipe seemed a lil crusty looking for my liking..

Thank you Amayama you brilliant brilliant people .. Sorry local Toyota part suppliers, I know you need to run your business but I need to see $$ spent more on parts, less on tax / delivery / whatever else you can think of charging me.
