So time for an update, since 2011 i have repainted the whole car and mostly just maintenance.
My plans for the summer of 2013 was to get new rims and projector headlights.
When i got the projectors i had to open them, and change the light beam, which wasn't as complicated as i thought.
Was nervous over spending that kind of money and didn't completly know what i was getting into, but i really wanted the projectors, think they give the car a cleaner look.
And thanks to a good write up on how to change the projectors i managed to get
them apart and customize them.

For rims i went for The Rota Grids 17x9 et30 with 15mm spacers on the rear,
and for my opinion the fitment is just spot on.
Now i just need some good coilovers so i can adjust the height a little bit.
Now i just use the old rims for my R888's for auto-x and track days.

Took the car to a photographer and here is the outcome.

I've been looking into turbo setups, Has anyone fitted the variable turbo from a 3L d4d 120 Land cruiser ? Just started looking into it any suggestions would be helpful :D
