Thanks. I thought the orange looked a bit dated. Now I have to do something about the OE spoiler.

Replaced the foam surround on the ML Sub!... Just bought the 04 GS430 last week and was very disappointed in the ML system until I realized the foam was gone... Thanks go out to BananasGS and other posts for getting me through the sub removal process. Sound system now is just fine... $25 + shipping for the foam and a little time and all is good!

Interesting enough, this GS only has 37XXX miles and was garage kept, yet the foam still deteriorated.... go figure

MY '05 GS430 has 36K miles and my Foam is still good.. I guess it depends if your car was exposed to the elements?

All went smoothly and car feels and looks awesome, super productive day!!

Ordered sway bar bushings, steering rack bushings, and sway bad endlinks. Past few days i've installed a new steering wheel, changed the armrest leather, an alignment, a tire balance and got the inside detailed. Friday it goes in for an oil change and power steering fluid change.

I started my swap from tan interior to black. First off was laying the black suade. It will be a week to finish as this is my daily driver for now.

Yes, you have to get the key cut. Not bad for a $10 flip key housing off ebay. I just had to transfer the guts from my factory key over.
