  2. JDM Ipsum 240S front end conversion + AME Shallen WX
  3. Currently running an Eonon headunit in the Avensis. Great value for money. I bought mine off the Eonon website and I think it may have been slightly cheaper. Mine isnt an operating system type but had bluetooth, GPS and phone mirroring as the main features. Bluetooth works a treat though you may have to use the wired external mic as the inbuilt mic is a bit quiet. GPS isn't as smart as what is available now but definitely usable. Aussie map is ~$40.00 extra IIRC. One downside is that radio freq isnt as strong as factory units as a station I used to be able to tune to is now mostly static pending location. Have been using for two years and not a problem so far.
  4. Kumho Ecsta 4X KU22's are a good alternative. I ran 235/40/18's on coilovers and they were quiet and comfy. Good grip and durable too. Not sure if they are available in your sizes though.
  5. Item: 19-inch Fabulous Expand wheels Location: Sydney NSW Item Condition: Condition is on the rough side with clear coat peeling and gutter rashes on all wheels (see-photos). 3 buckles on one of the fronts (see-photos). Scratches on the face and lips. Reason for Selling: Bought new wheels and these are no longer needed. Price and Payment conditions: $550.00 - Cash or Paypal Any additional information: Discontinued 2-piece welded Japanese VIP wheel in diamond cut polish finish. http://www.fabulous.co.jp/products/wheel/expand/ Set of 4 PCD: 5x114.3 (professionally redrilled from 5x112) Diameter / Width / Offset: 19 x 8.5 +32 Fronts, 19 x 9.5 +32 Rears Shipping: Yes at buyer's expense and buyer to organise.

  6. Hi Scott, How are you finding the higher profile front tyres than the rear in terms of handling and comfort? I am currently running 35 profile 19 inch tyres front and rear and was contemplating high profile on the front to fill the guards a bit more and for more comfort. Thanks, James
  7. Here's another one from me: I just serviced the Avensis with engine oil and oil filter change a few days ago (~150km). I used Castrol Magnatec 10w-40. The engine oil was topped up with 10w-30 Semi Synthetic oil at the mechanics today as I was getting some bushings put in (he did my previous service when he used the same 10w-30 Semi Syn so he didnt know I had serviced it with the 10w-40). Would it be fine to use this oil mix till my next service in ~5000kms time? Thank you.
  8. Scored an HKS ES Wagon rear cannon muffler which was a straight bolt-on from Yahoo Jp, thanks to Jesse Street. Now it has a nice deeper tone when driven harder whilst staying very civilised when idling or low speed, unlike the ones you see on old Lancer etc. Also put 3mm JDM Spacers on the rear for that little bit more flushness (can't go full flush as there is only around 1cm of gap left when fully seated). Tinted foglights yellow. Can't decide to stay or go back to white LED's like in my display pic... Car feels fairly sluggish on uphill starts which makes me contemplate supercharging or engine swapping LOL..... Something is definitely wrong with the steering which wheel alignments doesn't seem to fix, one mechanic told me it could be the steering rack problem. The DIY black surround headlights are fogging up on wet days, might take it apart and redo them again... A photo I found at the August Downshift Sydney Meet (Size Warning!): https://scontent-lax3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xta1/t31.0-8/11222267_503263723176033_7444668457615636814_o.jpg
  9. I have read posts here which people have said brake kit from one model of Toyota can be directly swapped into another Toyota model which got me thinking into potential brake upgrade. So what information/measurements etc do I need to find out whether a different Toyota model's brake kit could be fitted as a straight swap into another?
  10. That is damn cool with the Panda paint and wheels! Looks way better without factory spoilers too.
  11. Spotted either Bangtown or Rebz at Delhi Road and Epping Road lights. Just caught my eyes as I went through the junction.
  12. How much space is there between the inside rim/lip of your current wheels and the suspension strut right now? According to the site, the inside rim of your new 17x9 +35 on 245/45 would be 7.7mm closer to your suspension strut. (Using 235/45/18x8 +40 as existing setup) So say if your current space between the wheel and suspension 60mm, with your new wheels on you'd still clear your suspension struct with 52.3mm to spare. I hope this helps?
  13. Different car so I am not sure about issues but if you would like to protect/minimise extent of gutter rash to your wheels then I'd suggest at least 245 for 9" wide. 45 profile seems on point for 17s.
  14. Spotted Error on Epping Road at Epping. Nice racing seat haha!
  15. Ended up buying the Fabulous Expands. Here's some pics from last night's JDMST EOM Meet!
  16. Spotted a black Aurion ZR6 with TRD Aurion bodykit with TRD wheels on the M5 East. Not sure if member but looked cleaaaaan as.
  17. Long time no update.... Installed two new Ultra Racing rear lower bars. Wanted to get the front lower bar and the rear sway bar as well but decided to hold out due to my crappy angled driveway as I am already scraping the bottom pipes and sideskirts. So I've been rolling on the Tein coilovers for a few months and I've gotta say, its actually very easy and comfortable to live with on a daily basis (still cringe when I go over imperfections in the road thought) whilst dramatically improving the handling of the car. Haven't bother to take new photos after lowering yet as I have been busy looking for a new set of wheels in 19" to complement the lowered look so didn't really want to take photos with the current wheels on .. As of now I have two options in mind: Inovit Speedy in F/R 19 x 8.5 +35 (square for tyre rotation) or staggered F 19 x 8.5 +35 19 x 9.5 +35 (for flusher look) OR a second hand set of Fabulous Expand in polished F 19 x 8.5 +32, R 19 x 9.5 +32 (flusher wheel wells) Photos off google: However I rang up today and turns out they only have the Inovit Speedy in 20" as the 19" are out of stock and it would be a looooooong while till its available so that only leaves the Fabulous Expand. Slightly skeptical as to how the Expands would look on the car so I haven't pulled the trigger yet so I thought I would post it up and see what some of you think! New pictures soon!
  18. Spotted a bronze (?) Camry with matte black roof and boot, dark rims, JDMST sticker, LUK-xxx on Gore Hill Freeway.
  19. Moar low? Moar low! Now I just need to find a mechanic to install these at a decent price...and hunt for some new wheels!
  20. Looks amazing with the new SSRs and coils!
  21. Also spotted Error's Camry at Olympic Park Maccas on Sat night!
