  1. Happy Birthday tooyoung!

  2. The engine does look like, but someone once mentioned somewhere, silicone is used to clean the pipes and make them look new.
  3. Auto lever looks like it's been resprayed, or re-trimmed. Not sure on the bumper and headlights which both look tacky imo.
  4. Mine flashed once, eight months ago. Worked fine ever since. It does do a maintenance check at start-up, so maybe if something got stuck in there...
  5. Not sure if it's a MK3 or 4 that your after, but I woudl take a test drive. The first time I drove an auto was the hire car, when I went to pick my car up, and I didn't enjoy that. To be honest with you, I wouldn't buy a small car with an auto box, but in a 3 litre Soop it's a joy to drive. The auto box has also made me a much more relaxed driver and must have saved me from speeding, losing control or my license quite a few times.
  6. Oh an Stu8 - why not try cleaning your headlights. There's some instructions here... From personal experience I'd say 6 hours labour, which has got to be better thn spending £300 on a set of lights.
  7. A 2JZ-GE - Reminds me of the fast and furious ;)
  8. Bliemy. Downloaded the video yesterday, but copuldn't find which thread it was from. That does seem a very quick car, but I'm going to have another snipe at Veilside and ask them to stop making that kit. Look, the bonnet bairly held on. As for the rest of the stuff they put in the car, yay. Those front wheels were barely on the ground.
  9. I don't know about the jspecs being easier to mod. Don't forget that the UK spec comes with LSD, diff oil cooler and bigger injectors as standard. Also with steel blades on the turbos, you can get boost upto 1.5, compared to 1.2. Not saying that the UK spec are easier to mod, but to get serious performance, you certainly need to look at the whole package and consider it for yourself. The UK spec is a lardy car, with all the gadgets and the jspec turbos spool quicker and without the gadgets it is a lighter car. Depends therfore on what you want the car for?
  10. I really wish Veilside would stop making that kit for the Soop. It's embarrasing!!!
  11. You may be surprised to hear this (I haven't managed to convince my father yet), that this is left empty as standard. Most people tend to put in a custom front grill. I printed these instructions off a while back, but haven't tried it myself yet. There are some ready-made grills available from the states, but they fit at the front rather than the back of the hole and most people have taken them off, soon after. The later J-specs did have a bar\cross that made it into slightly smaller holes.
  12. Someones selling a whole bumper on here, if your interested!!!
  13. Can't go wrong with Envy. They do discounts on OEM parts too...
  14. I'll keep an eye for you on the valance, although for that price I'd consider looking into an aftermarket bumper. I don't have much experience with speedo conversions but I get the feeling you's get what you pay for. There are conversions that will convert the speedo but not much else. It may be worth asking wether it'll change the odometer and also the speed sensors for the active PAS and cruise control if you have it. Yep, Toyota parts are too damn expensive!!
