picked up my new daily yesterday is a stock (other than the cusco front strut brace) 1998 Toyota Altezza RS200Z (the JDM version of the Lexus IS200) 92000k's on it is a 5 speed triptronic automatic with manual mode and up and down shift buttons on the steering wheel, has a factory LSD traction control etc etc all the extras is comfy quiet smooth to drive and pretty quick for a 4cyl auto in a 1.36 ton car :D. Have a set of apexi coilovers, TRD front and rear swaybars, Cusco rear strut brace, HKS extractors and full cat back exhaust with stainless tail end section and some 18" Volk SE37's to go on it eventually 8)

loving it even in a 1.3 tonne car it pulls really well and the gear changes with the 5at are really smooth

Fitted some suspension gear I have that came with it.......TRD yellow front (30.3mm) and rear (19.4mm) swaybars (standard sizes are F:27.3, R:14.4) and some Apexi World Sport coilovers so much nicer to drive over stock (handles better but is just as comfortable over bumpy roads)


Image

also have a set of 5x114.3 18x7.5 +40 Volk SE37k rims that came with it, haven't fitted them yet as I need to get some wheel nuts for them.... thinking I will sell them and get a different set of 17" Volks possibly in the near future
