Yep - nice car indeed. I like the wheel choice - clean.

I got my UCF20 back recently from the body shop (new front and rear bumpers). I installed new ball joints last weekend and got new rubber (Falken F452). I had to give back the Camry SE - nice car but no match for my old LS. Here is a semi clean look at the old LS:

And the rear - Also moved the mufflers in about 1.5" toward the front. Nice to have the old LS back

Thanks PD - I will end up buying the Megans this Summer as the Bilsteins are finally starting to crap out. I will drop about 1 more inch and then it will sit nicely.

No doubt - now they are discontinued - our only option is Carson Toyota - Luis can get ahold of another JDM type billet option and it is cheaper.

When I got hit the only thing I cared about was the damn grill LOL At least it was not damaged.

Unfortunately no link as I spoke to Luis at Carson Toyota directly (310-522-2380). Price was good as I recall it was around $275. It resembled the Trenz billet grill a few years back.

Offset is aggressive - nothing camber won't cure - like the look - also the Q45projectors are awesome
