    I was looking at these the other day, I think they look amazing and are easy enough to get hold of in Japan via JUC but most of them seem to be V6 auto! Does anyone know of these being converted to manual and drifted? Not that i can afford to do this but the idea is nice haha!

    Thoughts?

    I have seen them being drifted but couldnt confirm if they were converted.. Would think so though.

    Ahh yea, thats baller but... what about this...


    I am a huge fan of the Verossa. Not because it looks good but because its so fucking ugly, I love how vulgar they look and know that they can be converted easy enough and think they share the JZX110 chassis but i may be wrong here.

    Just imagine this coming up behind you sideways :wack:

    That Crown Athlete that Mint posted is totally awesome, never seen one before. The Mark X looks pretty sweet in fairly standard form as well. The Verossa on the other hand...

    There was a GRX120 for sale in the UK a couple of weeks back for around 10k, they can look awesome with just a set of wheels and lowered. Just a shame they all come auto from factory.

    Although, I do prefer the GRX130.

    There are 2 mark X for sale in UK, the white one been up for sale like nearly 2 years, and the black one just pop out recently.
    I prefer GRX130 more than the GRX120, but 120 are a lot more cheaper.

    Just wondering if anyone know about the performance of the standard V6 engine?

    Holy shit, I didn't know the White one had been up for sale for that long. Haven't seen the Black one yet. Don't they run the same engine as the IS250/350?

    Sard have a full manual conversion for Mark X / IS250/ IS350
    i think it includes box and all the small bits with a ecu developed by their own.
    saw a few that has been converted in Manual on dorikten, it looks like completely standard manual.
    but the price tag is too damn much and only authorized garage/dealer can carry out the work or purchase the kit. :wack:

    So that's why one of the only manual GRX130s I've ever seen with the SARD kit is the ST-Garage one.
