Thumbs up Got one! 95/SC400/Injen/Magnaflow~Clean~Platinum/Black

Greetings,
I have in my possession as of yesterday a CHERRY 110K SC400 with 13 years of dealer FULL service records.
Injen intake
Full Magna-flow
LED Lights in front
Custom LED rear.
Dual-Din DVD
Octane Motorsports body kit
Built in Radar
3 Sets of wheels-tires:
Stock Wheels with Low-Pro Tires
18 Chromes with Lo-pro
18 Sc430 Winter rims with Blizzark tires


The sellers dad is a Lexus Mechanic and DID EVERYTHING MECHANICAL REGULARLY.
OK,
I drove it from Boston to NYC yesterday and it feels like a new car! AMAZING, really fast for a heavy automatic, Tight suspension, no noises, starts cold like it's new, runs cool, AC/HEAT perfect, Dash good, almost everything works

ISSUES: (UPDATE: ALL ISSUES REPAIRED, LIGHTS AND BODY GOING BACK TO STOCK, WHEELS REPLACED)

Key only opens right door
trunk has no key, must be opened electronically
trunk switch broken, must touch 2 wires under dash to open
key fob opens passenger door buy driver door tries, but can't unlock or lock (I see it trying)

I'm not sure I like the body kit. There is something added with the side skirts but also something about the shape of the car that is lost.
I also think I may want much larger wheels.

Thanks again Guys!!
(and gals if there are any)

That is a good start. 20 inch wheels will ride a little harsher, but some have done it on here and they report not too bad of a ride. That depends on your style. I have 19's and they are pretty rough in my book. I also have lowering springs, new bushings, etc, might be a contributing factor.

PM me for service manual.

He wanted 6K, I paid 5K and a few hundred for the 2 extra sets of wheels and tires. It also comes with all of the original 95 parts to go back to stock (one tail light has broken lens). The bumper looked good tho when I peeked at it (I have to go back up with a truck to get it)
I was going to put the sc430 18's on it but I don't really like them on the car any more then these grotesque chromes (craigslist to the rescue).

WHAT REASONABLY PRICED WHEELS WILL LOOK SPORTY / CLASSY ON THIS SC? I am drawn to minimalist, 5 star type wheels but suggest away please.

Thank You!!

Exhaust looked perfect to me on the lift. It is a MagnaFlow setup.

I would basically undo everything that has been done to that car.

Great color though! Speaking of color, that car must have been repainted because there is no way they got that color that close to matching on that car given the kit and wheels.

Don't worry though, the car itself is in far better shape than many and is something to be proud of

I'm thinking about removing the skirts and selling the wheels.
