Was able to get a HI Res shot after she got cleaned up..

Ordered Invidia Mid pipe and Toms Racing Start button.. Accuair is going to be started this week..

Think these wheels are going to be going up for sale.. Just a tad bit to much poke for me..

So the car came with the ISF OEM Brembo kit when you bought it?

If that's the case, is this a direct fit bolt on? I have a GS430 which I know has the 4-piston calipers already, but 6 piston Brembos sounds mighty nice

Thanks and your GS looks gorgeous. Keep posting

Curious to see how the Black Pearl kit will look like in black. I always think that this kit looks good on a lighter color car. Also, heard that there is only one Black Pearl for the 3gs here in the US and that the company no longer offer this. Can you confirm this?

I plan on having the car wrapped a bright color of some sort..

The kit is still available as I have pricing and can have it state side in about 6-8 weeks (3-4 week build time, 3-4 ocean freight)

I figured out that I will be running the Cwest Fenders as well.. Not many if at all anyone I see has this kit... Im a fan of the front bumper, fenders & side skirts but the BP sealed the deal lol..

that body kit is bad a$$. Do you have a sound clip of your exhaust set up? I'm thinking about the ppe headers but wanted to know what they sound like with the tanabe. Don't want something obnoxious [ricer] but a good growl would be nice to boost the beautiful sound from the tanabe alone.
