Well, it was time to ditch the Toyota Hi-Lux Surf, a turbo diesel,
and buy the Misses a new ride, not really brand new though. It
is very fun to drive. I still have my R33 LM, no way is she getting
that car. Well, here are a few pics I took tonight before it got dark.
I spent the majority of today doing paperwork and registration, then
I installed a new head unit/mp3 player, ipod interface, Class D amp,
and a JL Audio 12W6 sub. She has wanted one for quite some time.
It is different than driving her SUV as it sits a lot lower, thanks to
the suspenion, quite nimble too.







What, you really thought i got her that R32 GTR? That is my friend's
car I am car-sitting while he is in Iraq. Her's is the one next to the R32.
It is a Toyota bB, we traded in her SUV for it.













I have talked about getting her a GTR, perhaps a R32, but she
did not like that idea because i would mod it out and it would be "TOO"
difficult for her to drive. But the bB is really easy to get around in.
I am sure it is going to get way better gas mileage than the R does.

thanks for all the comments. ^^ I started the install around 1100 and was done done by 1400.
Quite easy considering i have done it about 100 timesnow. Today we are going shopping for the
wheels, 18 inchers of course. I want to get some Volks, but if push comes to shove, will get some
Works. I really want bronze, but who knows. When it was time to get new ones for my R, i was
set on getting bronze 100%, but look what i ended up getting.

Yes, it has "Flip Paint" on the dash surround and a few other pieces, came like that, I dont think
it is stock. Looks better in the flesh as more green comes out; in the pics with the flash the
brown/dark gold is showing up more.

Hopefully I will get bored with the bB soon so I can return to my car :)
You know how it is when you get a new toy, especially when it is bone stock. At least it has suspension
and window tint. The audio portion is good, for now, waiting for a few custom pieces. Well, thanks for
the feedback.

LOL! That is so true. I forced my wife to get new wheels on the first day she got her Vitz. Just couldn't stand the 100% stock look. :chuckle:

Nice one, hyrev. Looking forward to the mods.

Cya O!

i am sure you can fit 20" on an Odyssey. Have you seen the new Odyssey's?
I saw one all VIP, had what appeared 20", all black with chrome accents. It
actually looked very nice.

I am contemplating whether I should put window shades on the driver/pass.
windows. Gonna go shopping later today for the wheels. Anyone have any
suggestions of which ones I should fit?

Just a quick question slightly off topic. Do you have the details of the wheel and tyre sizes on your mates 32? It's just that the wheels look identical to mine and I want to know what width of rubber people are using on them.

the verdict is in, after going to the rims shop, decided on getting the
Work XD-9, in chrome, 18 X 8. Put them next to the car last night and
they look sick. It is really her decision, i was just there to give guidance,
although I was really pushing for bronze. She said the wheels look 'CUTE',
i think it is gonna look hard. I do want a CF hood for it later to make it
look cuter.




Would be nice to get that guage cluster and fill it with some Defi guages,
the BF ones.
