I haven't been updating this thread as my mods were pretty minimal. The major work has mostly been maintenance and some body repair.

I finally settled () with a head/fog/tail light vinyl film combo. I replaced the grill once and painted it at least 3 times.

Of the "mods left" from my original post in 9/07...

"The only mods left are....
1. Eyelids - very soon
2. LS430 Xenon Retrofit
3. 3000K HID foggies
4. Custom Intake
5. Custom Exhaust"

I've added the eyelids, HID foggies and intake. There are still some mods I'd like to do, but they aren't anything that update the car to today's standards. Keep in mind this is a 12 year old car!!

I'm still on the fence with the LS430 retrofit as I like the look of the original headlights, not so much the bug-eyed projector retrofit look. Also, the exhaust is questionable as I really like the comfort of a silent cruiser. However, I am still open to getting some throaty V8 rumble....maybe a butterfly valve for noise control?

My new "mods left" list includes:

1. Retrofit IS300 yellow projectors into foglights - of course without looking too different
2. M3 style rear lip spoiler
3. Figure out exhaust

Don't be surprised if these 3 take me another 2 years
It's amazing how much those eyelids make it look similar to an LS460 looks great!!! What did you paint your grill with?

Black powercoat...

Recent Vossens....
How big are those Vossens? 19" or 20"? I'm hoping 20", because they look a little too big for my taste, and I was looking to snag a set of 19" CV3s for LS4.
