    Randomly found kinda nice place for a photo. The car has been washed, but it's shot by a lazy cel phone cam.

    Really contemplating on black-housing headlights, since I got an extra pair of oem headlights with me now. Might be a good opportunity to practice dealing with an oven and pry them off.

    This isn't really following my next future plan as I stated above, but... Cleaned out my K&N drop-in filter with the cleaning kit.

    Before: :puke:

    After: :boink:

    Also, cleaned hell out of the engine bay w/ Simple Green, and tightened the screws for the arm rest, while drying out the filter.

    Had brunch with my lady(s).

    I had a quiche lorraine. Wifey had pecan waffles. And the other lady in the back had 87 octane.

    My rear lip wasn't installed completely flush, due to the double-sided tape being not fully attached--a little left from the center area. (Had to wait for this 'til the rainy season was over since Nov. '13. Waited a little too long tho lol.)

    Once it was done, finally had a chance to apply Toyota Camry's bumper lip protector on it.

    It has been a while to take some pics of the rear-end. Might be hard to tell, but I'm glad that it's finally over!

    Yeah, man! Was a pleasure doing business w/ ya! I actually couldn't make it 'til the fireworks b/c wifey had an early start next day.

    We should def hang out w/ you and your wife, too next time. :)

    Was wondering why you said that, 'til I checked your MR thread lol. Sorry, Chris. :pedobear:

    Thank you, sir. Well, it supposedly prevent from getting scratches on the bumper, but my PU BR's lip is attached by the 3M tape, and the tape itself already prevents from getting the contact between the lip and the bumper. The protector is mainly for the aesthetic look of the OEM like yours.


    I just like my HTC too much lol. I actually bought an i-Pad recently, but I don't really need to connect that into my stereo lol. (Besides, wifey uses that AAALL THE TIIIME, so there's not even a chance for me to be a user lol.)

    But hey Chris, you should really buy this from him tho! Pretty sure you'll like it, rather than that cassette you're rocking now.. :hide:

    His IS350, parked next to my car. I really like the color of his IS. It's white, but it almost looks like silver from a distance. Good choice, James! :thumbsup:

    Ha it’s all good, I’d rather have red cables anyway. :p I’d love better sound quality and be able to control the ipod through the factory controls. Did Apple ever change the charge cable ports though? I have an old Photo 20GB, so it’s probably outdated unless they never changed.

    That’s cool you guys met up. I agree on the white, that would be my choice as well for a Lexus.


    Don't poke fun at my $10 cassette....lol

    Apple has changed ports once since your generation of iPod. It's now a lightning port, but that just changed for the iPhone 5. But you can always get an adapter.

    Anyway car looks good Richard. I may need to pick up a grounding kit, I've noticed some dimming recently
