LED vs standard bulb


6k 13 SMD running light vs standard






6k HID vs stock HID


Not sure why the 6k inners look so much bluer than the 6k HID's

People ask 75-150 dollars for the GS430 shift ****. Why, I don't know. 30 minutes of searching on eBay I found this one for 35 dollars.

After

Lol, y'all don't hate on my peppermint and 7 cents! I have a list of things I want to do but no certain order. Probably do a gloss black vinyl roof just because I have a friend that can do it cheaper than other shops.

I hate people...

Some one was a little too excited about leaving work, pulled from their parking spot too sharp and BAM! Her right rear tire clipped my fender and bumper and tore the smile off its face.

Now I'm waiting on their insurance to get the ball rolling. So for now I'd need to start looking for a great body shop.

The only extra stuff I'm getting done at the moment is getting my mirror repaired, along with painting the roof black. Not too big on gs300 aero. None of it looks that great too me. The only kit I like is made by Aimgain and they aren't getting that much money from me. I'd rather go GTE first.

I'm near the Goldsboro, Greenville area. I used to live in Concord when I was in college so I know the area somewhat.

Spent 30 minutes looking at black paints for the roof. I was going to do a vinyl roof but I want to add the UGO roof spoiler. I figured vinyl would be a bad idea to attach a spoiler to, so I went with paint instead.

The color I picked was Maserati Nero Carbonio. I should get my car back this week and i'll post a few pics.
