    The disco and glanza are since xmas this year aswell :/ so iv decided this car is staying standard so i dont waste more money on cars

    Had my new car 2 weeks now

    my new Lexus Is200 Sport is my first rwd car and its pretty good fun in the wet ( I know there not the most lively of rwd cars)
    iv had it two weeks now and really enjoy driving it
    got it for a good price only 69k on the clock, full lexus service history, cam belt done 5k ago, all the extras like sat nav etc, really nice to drive, not fast at all but really smooth and quiet, a bit different to stripped out race cars and a jacked up disco

    and never would I buy some 9.5j Bim Zeitz wheels for it! that would be going against everything I wanted this car to be!

    so yeah so far the last two weeks I think iv done pretty well at not wasting money on cars,
    and im not buying a front lip for it ever either
    and I haven't for a second priced up a 1JZ/SR20 conversion for it either
    cheers for looking

    Upgrade the anti-roll bars, they make an absolutely huge difference to the car.

    you have a new grille, wheels, adjustable coil overs and your car is lower. you even have photographic proof.

    I think you should not bother with a mx-gay and get this beast welded up thats all you need to do with he and go have some fun. Welded diffs daily arnt too bad at all it will just skip in slow turning but its no big deal
