    haha yeah, had a hard time convincing my partner, but she caved in after a while:)
    was thinking of getting a f50 cima or maybe fuga, but crowns are rare as... also wanted in white, but nothing in the country yet

    Yeah Japan import. Only a few in Nz so far. Not even sure if any have been registered yet as I had to get an insurance person to come have a look at it as they don't have it in their system yet.

    yes you are correct. once my coils are here(hoping to get them in next few weeks)ill slamm her and measure up everything and start browsing through YAJ for a perfect set of 19s.
    check my sentia thread, no china there:)

    also not an athlete, royalsaloon... so its a full spec minus leather and lip kit that athletes come with and slightly different tail lights
