Default Here's my '96 LS-400 with 157K miles

We finally had a decent day here in Oklahoma on Saturday, so I spent some time cleaning up my wife's LS-400. It's a stock car - sorry folks it's her car and she won't let me lower it and put on some cool rims and tires But she does let me do all the basic maintenance on the car.

A thousand miles or so ago I put new Dunlop Signature series tires on her car and I have been very pleased with the ride and low noise levels.

@dnelmo:

Hella clean car sir. Mine's the same color, but far from as clean (**** you snow and road salt!!)

Nice to see Pure's car out and about ha...too bad his tires aren't shiny like the rest of his car

Are those MRR GT1s on the LS to the left? It kinda looks like them in the reflection haha

That silver LS looks familiar...I don't remember whose it is, but I recall they buckled their fender and had to pull it back out...hence that fender damage.

Ok, so I've been lurking around here for long enough and I have posted on here a while back showing my car before my recent update. With that being said, here's my car as of now. Wish I could get a hold of some coilovers to drop it some more... My bad for the cell phone pic...haha!!

pshh no kit, this thing gets dailly'd at that height, and if i could get my hands on a rear SS kit, would be a smidge lower. any kit i put on it would be shredded within a week!

Yeah....I jacked up my fenders on some driveways a few times so i pulled out the jack handle and did the ghetto style roll/flare for now untill I can afford some body work...It clears not but looks nasty.

How do the MRR's look? Im not normally a fan of the chrome but the offsets were right and so was the price.

I felt so out of place with all the beautiful 3 piece wheels at super autotoyz

Joe,, good catch. We may never see Pure's car again. Only makes an appearance every 9 months or so.

JasonM - With the color of your car, the MRR's look good in chrome on your car. Not too subtle but not too outlandish either.

JGC,, only have a word for your car,,,

Pure,, excuses are only for those who need them. It's a car meet,,SOMEBODY there had some tire shine you could have used. All you had to do was SEARCH!! LOL!!
