Default DoctorDank - 07 gs350

Howdy all, new member and looking forward to being an active participant in the forums. I was a longtime member on Acurazine, drove a couple of 6 speed CL's over the past 10 years and did some modest upgrades like BBK, coilovers, wheels, etc. Here's a picture of the car.

I am now moving on to one of my favorite sedans, the Lexus GS. I bought the 07 GS350, with only 55,500 miles on the clock. I work from home and only drive 5k-7k miles a year so this will be under 100k for a looonng time. I'm planning to do plenty of research here on springs vs coils, good wheel choices for a white car and start planning a nice build with a subtle drop, tasteful wheels, dark tint and likely I/H/E. I certainly welcome any input or advice, otherwise I'll be doing my homework and won't ask the same questions over again without searching

Have you had BBQ in WA.....? Put a Bible next to Franklin's and it's Jesus Christ as far as I'm concerned! haha. Our BBQ here is absolutely terrible My GF's from Houston, and she won't even eat it, haha. Whenever she goes home I get really excited, not because she's gone, but because she brings me Torchy's

new wheels ordered! 20/9f and 20/10.5r, k3projekt f2's. I'm ordering BC Racing coilovers shortly, hoping to get it all installed by labor day weekend! I also had the car tinted, 5% limo all around except fronts to stay legal.

Quick question, what's a fair price range to sell my OEM wheels and tires? Tires are about 75% tread left. The wheels are truly mint, no rash at all. I was going to sell those to buy my new tires.

Thanks for any advice.
