    Its true, Audi is higher class in both performance comfort and quality. Lexus is mediocore compared to auto manufacs that specialize in the above.

    Oh no, I agree. German engineering FTW.

    But I want to work on my car and have it last a long time without problems, so I stick with Japanese lol.

    hehe Maybe so, but this is my new beater. :p I may consider the R8 in a few years. I've always liked that car when it first hit the streets.

    It looks stock, but it's got an aem cai intake under those covers. I'm about to order 55W HIDs for the lows and fogs. I got led drl's/highs waiting to be installed. I'm ordering hks hipermax III clx coilovers and tanabe medalion touring pretty soon. Give me some wheel/offset recommendations!

    lol, I hate it when they cover up the entire engine bay, so pointless lol.

    White HIDs I hope.... I hope you aren't gonna rice it out lol. 55watt HIDs is too much IMO, especially for fogs that'll just blind everyone. And with those LEDs, you won't have anymore high beams.

    Can't wait to see the coilovers! And the tanabe exhaust is always a pleaser. As for the wheels... slam it on the coilovers for now and that will be enough! (keep the wheels).

    The covers keep things looking cleaner and quieter. I'm doing 5000k for the lows. The fogs will probably be 3000k or maybe 5000k too. What do you think? I'm not concerned with losing the highs since I hardly ever use them.

    I think that the car left you too broke to afford a good camera.

    She's a beauty.
    I recommend you don't get 55W HID's. 35W is better.

    That sounds good.... I totally recommend 35 watt 5000k low beams and 35watt 3000k fog lights. That's exactly what I have, so I can tell you it'll be good!

    Ok. I'll do 5000k/3000k 35W for both instead. I don't want to blind people off the road. lol
