Question Just bought a is300

So i just bought a Lexus is300 that just got out of a accident. Ive spent the last couple days working my *** off on it. I was wondering if anyone has parts, ideas on good aftermarket parts to put on, or anything in general. Feel free to give me a inspirational quote to help me get through the fixing phase.

Check out the pictures and let me know what you think. (The last picture is before the accident)

Can occasionally find used tein basic coilovers for sale online for like $400-$600
I have them on my car, they're not bad for the little amount of $$$ they cost.
The ride is pretty stiff but it's better than the shocks & springs I had on my GSX

Let us know what parts you need.


Oh, I would go back to OEM wheels, or something different.
