Default Finally got some pictures...

Bought it back in December....like this (blegh). Got it all detailed (pinstripe removal = ]), new mirror installed (had a hole in the passenger side mirror when I bought it), and my girlfriend just got the windows tinted 20% today for our 1 year anniversary





Now:

Haha love it, the Scursion is the cruiser, the GS is for daily driving, just couldn't deal with the gold pinstripe and clear windows haha.

Ah, gotcha. I guess that's my bad haha. I honestly love the car, my mom has an SC430 that she picked up a couple years ago used, and ever since then I loved Lexus/Toyotas. Needed a DD, and found this thing for $7,400. With all service records, higher mileage (156,000 now), with a new long block installed by Lexus at 53,000 miles. Needless to say, I'm extremely happy, and have no plans on selling the car. Just kinda want the rear wheels spaced a little bit, that would make the car look wayyy better to me.

Can't tell if you were being sarcastic or not, but those are GS430 wheels...not IS300.

Nice looking truck!

geeez sounds like you got a deal, I'm in south carolina and was trying to find a deal on a black on black 430 for under 11k i couldn't find anything, so i picked up a silver on gray..

nice pickup though, definetly GS430 wheels not IS, i have the same wheels non chrome on my 430..

sadly as of tomorrow i think my GS is sold.

I'm sure there are plenty of guys who will agree, that fitment is key! IMO it'll help a ton!

They came on both the IS300 and the GS430, just the IS300 is more common, so more people put that title on those wheels.




Anybody know what wheels spacers would look good???
