thanks!

next steps are the BFI and the audio system. My house is first position for "tuning"
Next year, i will drop lower the SC, maybe with Tanabe springs and install other headers, catalytic converters and remove the 3rd converter

On Thursday, i changed the 225/40 R18 on the front wheels to 245/40 R18 its the correct diameter to the original 225/55 R16.

i orderd for the new middle section from the exhaust system to remove the 3rd converter a 3" resonator with 10" long. Not more is needed

Click the image to open in full size.

The car hifi is also on work

I'm surprised you didn't want to go with a touchscreen since you were doing that work in the dash anyway. I'd pop a decent fold down, integrated DVD screen in there. Either way, though, it looks like you're doing all the work the right way. It's nice and clean.

HY!

My first idea was a double DIN radio, but i think, the display is in the night to bright and it blinds (right word?). my first choice was the kenwood radio, but i pay in austria ~ 1200 Dollar for this radio! this is to much. i had a ´01 RX300 and the navi screen was in the night to bright. this was not fine to drive.

The SC is only for nice weather and weekend, i need only a good radio in my car No DVD, no navi, maybe bluetooth was a good part from the newer radios, but, i don´t phone if i drive.

Monday or tuesday comes the USB Box instead the cd-changer and i can install complet the radio in the dash.
