ell here it is after a 10hr round trip and a successful as the car is in truly impeccable condition and I am fussy. No rust in the slightest. It has a few goodies on it, Spoon mani, Spoon B-pipe and N1 :p, Tein dampening adjustable coilovers (think there flex). Initial plans are obvious for me, OEM EK9 Facelift rears and some worthy JDM Rims for it. The Racing Sparco's just don't do it for me with the yellow so they'll be forsale. This is just a quick right up, the car is unregistered and hasn't been driven in 2years when it was first imported and stored. So I'll be the first keeper. I am in love with it and also drives like a new car, No rattles like my old car did. Won't be hitting the roads till next summer so let the slow progress begin (Bare in mind the car hasn't been polished or washed in about 2 years lol.

Well got a few goodies for the car, D1 spec snap off boss kit, really am impressed with the quality of this for the price and brings the steering wheel nice and close to me, thought i'd have to get a short boss, but it's perfect for me.

And next picked up this recaro pole position in virtually new condition of SPek9 with ABE (Designed to be ran with a normal seatbelt).

It's the best fixed bucket I've ever had and that includes a buddyclub and two Brides!

Nice car mate, it will look so much better when you replace the gay Lexus lights with OEM ek9 rear lights.

It's a shift sports bonnet I believe, Fitment is great for a carbon bonnet IMO, Livvy has one forsale for a bargain at the minute actually.

Cheers for the comments guys :), will keep this updated! Getting rid of the pool table in the garage so It'll be dry stored from now on.

Cheers again for the comments and faith in me lol.

Took each wheel off yesterday after tackling a locking nut in each wheel with no socket for them, Searched everywhere in the car, Guess it's still laying in Tokyo somewhere lol.

But got those off eventually and had the wheels off the car for the first time and again the cleanliness made me happy lol. Gave it a quick rub down and done the calipers in a light Gold sort of colour. Trying to keep an OEM look about it at the same time. And was thinking some black wheels so tried a wheel off my dads stock car and I liked it, what you guys think? But I am travelling tomorrow night to get a set of Mighty Grey 15" Rega's :).

Here's a few pics I took. Still haven't found a set of tail lights at a reasonable price lol.
