  1. I've had this particular style of LED rear bumper lamps installed for the last 3-years, but after noticing that one of them had moisture inside the lens I decided to swap them out for new ones - And to my surprise, they now do one with a sequential indicator instead of a normal flashing one, so they're even better than before! :) Here's the video I uploaded to YouTube earlier: https://youtu.be/ty8JQPmolFA
  2. Thanks! Yeah the headlights are the factory HID ones with AFS. I would like to go for the facelift headlights that have the daytime running lamp built into the bottom, but they're $$$$. Vland have just released a new full LED headlight for this model which is very different, but I'm on the fence at the moment. Couple more pics that for some reason wouldn't work on the previous post:
  3. Thanks mate. I'll have to get a photo of the two cars together sometime. In the meantime, here's some of the IS350. I bought it completely stock in May 2018, but so far have done: Front and rear bumper lips, throttle controller, carbon wrapped center console, trunk lip spoiler, roof spoiler, Vland tail lights, S2000 muffler tips, AF Dynamic air intake, chrome fog light surrounds, custom LED rear bumper reflectors, rear bumper reflector surrounds, Lexus light up high stop lamp, headlight eyelids, front mudflaps, facelift F-Sport grille, anodized red brake calipers, 20% window tint and a leather stitched dash mat.
  4. Well guys, it's been almost 2-years and I bought the Aurion back a couple of weeks ago from the same person I sold it to (poster above). When I originally sold the Aurion it was a regretful sale, but we were buying our first home and the difference between our offer on the house and what the seller was willing to accept was about the cost of the Aurion, so sadly it had to go. I've wanted it back ever since, so when the opportunity arose to buy it back I decided to take it. She still looks the same as the day I sold her, albeit with a few more km's and stone chips here and there, but for the most part she's exactly as I remember. I also have a Lexus IS350 which I take turns driving to work on alternate days, but they both share the garage together and it's a nice feeling to have the old girl back again.
  5. Are you able to post any real-life pics of the ones you've fitted to your Aurion?

    My '06 Aurion Sportivo SX6

    This is my 2006 Toyota Aurion Sportivo SX6. I've always been a fan of these cars ever since they came out, and I decided to buy one in May 2015. I bought it with the 18" TRD Kappa wheels fitted as pictured, but the upgrades started the second day of ownership. For a full list of mods/upgrades please see my build thread: http://au.toyotaownersclub.com/forums/topic/51519-my-06-toyota-aurion-sx6-sportivo/
  7. Wrapped the centre console and engine cover in glossy 4D carbon fibre wrap. Cost was only about $12 and a few hours of my time.
  8. Hard throttle is my stage name . But yes, hydrographic printing is a wonderful thing. I wrapped my console in a glossy carbon fibre vinyl, but hydrographic printing would have been even better. You just have to be sure the person doing it is experienced enough not to stuff it up.
  9. Haha, that's the spirit!! :D Well, it's been a week so far and the splitter is still there, without any real damage. I've scraped it on a bunch of entrances etc, despite being extremely careful and taking extreme angles wherever possible, but so far so good. The goal of making it to at least a month could well be achievable, but time will tell ;) Obligatory victory shot:
  10. Washed it and then chucked this front splitter on today. I bought it from the US 7-months ago, and it has sat in the garage while I've been deciding whether to put it on as the front bumper already scrapes on a daily basis. I decided to throw caution to the wind however and this is the result. The EZ Lip I had already fitted is still there (except now sits flat), which provides a decent contrast between the bumper and splitter. I can't see this thing lasting more than a month before getting destroyed by a driveway or speed bump to be honest, but it beats sitting there collecting dust.
  11. Mmm, liquid metal - Almost sounds as good as it looks . Welcome to the forums mate
  12. That's a shame. There's a piece of foam along the side of the VVTi line, so what likely would have happened as it would have leaked into that until it couldn't absorb any more, then dripped down through the engine bay until it hit the concrete and pooled up. Probably a good thing as you could have quite easily driven away the following morning. My VVTi line blew in a similar fashion, and then a month later the front oil cooler hoses blew too. $520 sounds steep, should only be a couple of hundred at the most. Make sure that whoever you get to do it uses the FULL metal VVTi line, NOT a rubber one.
  13. What sort of fuel consumption are you getting? And what sort of driving are you doing? (eg. 40% highway, 60% city).
