Default IS300 Sportcross - 1st month build progress

Bought my 2002 Sportcross less than a month ago and here are some pics of my progress. So far got it tinted, lowered on coilovers, SSR 18" wheels, & k&n intake.

That looks pretty nice. GTC doesn't look bad at all. If I had more money to blow, I'd love a sportcross as a daily.

The wheels on my SC were 19" Varstoen ES3. Recently sold them. Here's a pic of the entire car.

Wheels aren't the GTC. They are SSR wheels.
