  1. Bayson R Lip Cheap ebay lip, but fits great and is cheap enough to toss in the bin when you are done scraping the crap out of it.
  2. I got the exact same wheels in these specs: 20X9 +40 245/35 20X10 +45 275/30 Fronts I could have actually gone a bit more aggressive and it would still be fine. I suggest maybe +35 if you want it to be a bit more flush but +40 to play it safe (+40 actually looks fairly good already). Rears are at the VERY LIMIT without any fender modifications and is PERFECT fitment with ZERO rubbing whatsoever even when hitting dips at high speed. I now have a bit more clearance even, after a new alignment. Only very slight rubbing I have is the front when reversing on a non flat surface when the wheel is turned to the right, but if I reverse slowly it won't rub either. But that is also due to my setup being 20's so you should be safe with 19's.
  3. I had a new GS250 as a loan car and it had the new Mark Levison in it. My god it sounded fantastic!!! Bass was deep and audio was super crisp and sharp. I think they realised how *BLEEP* the ML system is in our ISF's and did something about it for the new Lexus line up's.
  4. Only have my 2011 as reference, but yes it does sound a bit average. Have to crank the volume up all the time.
  5. Thanks ISFBloke, got your PM. Will shoot you a message and see if we can meet up in about a weeks time when I am back in Sydney. To be honest, the Borla in your video's sounds very sedate and is not all that loud (which is a good thing). My previous car was probably about 3-4 times as loud, so you can imagine why I am asking to see how loud the Joe Z is exactly. Definitely keeps that big 8 rumble Thanks.
  6. I can manage some drone, just not excessive all the time like my previous car. Was considering the Borla, but just wasn't sure if it was aggressive enough as I thought it was only little bit louder than stock. ISFBloke, where bouts in Sydney are you? Thanks.
  7. Sorry, I have one on order from Chatswood Lexus that is arriving in the next 2 weeks and it's only costing me a little bit more than the price you have quoted @2000 USD. Thanks anyway.
  8. My excess is also around the $2k mark. Way I see it is I will only make a claim in an incident where it's a huge repair bill or write off. In all my years of driving I have made very little claims and where the repair bill was under $2k (like a scratched bumper) I would just pay it out of pocket because in the long run it is going to work out cheaper for me based on my accident history. If you are a terrible driver and make lots of claims then it makes sense to lower your excess with a higher policy premium as a trade off.
  9. Hi, Was wondering if anyone in Sydney has a Joe Z exhaust on their car that I can have a listen to? Loud and droning wouldn't have been an issue a few years back when I was still rolling around in buzz box ricer rocket ships :P , however with age I just cannot stand excessive droning anymore. Many thanks.
  10. I never sell my stock parts.
  11. Hi all, Wanted to see if anyone has a second hand Joe Z exhaust they want to sell before I go and order one from Chatswood Lexus. Thanks.
  12. rsith, Check out the first post of the blue F with Weds SA67R He is running 19x9 +35 245/35/19 and 19x10 +42 275/30/19. I PM'd him and he said he has 0 rubbing issues and did no fender modifications at all. I think if you want a +35 offset it should be ok if you don't go too wide on your tire selection.
  13. Looks good What size tyres are you running and any rubbing at all?
