    Hey whats up guys! I'm new to the forums and just wanted to share what I've got so far on my 3GS. So far its a big work in progress but I hope to get a good amount of it done soon!

    Heres when I got the car brand new, stock with 83xxx miles

    The very first thing I decided to do was go air suspension so I picked up Airforce struts and I'm using Airlift Autopilot V2 Management. Big shoutout to Fender Defender and Outcast Garage for the amazing work!

    Super clean trunk setup, thanks Fender Defender!

    Heres how the car sits on stock wheels

    Next up I did a simple muffler delete with some 4'' tips. Real cheap and sounds awesome!

    My friend also let me borrow some varrstoen ES2s as temporary wheels till I find my own set. To be honest I actually liked this setup a lot! It almost convinced me to get real TE37SL's....haha. Specs on these are 19x9.5 +22 squared.

    Next up is my rear camber kit. Ended up picking up a set of megan rear upper camber arms.

    and I finally got my own set of wheels! (hence why I got a camber kit...) Weds Kranze LXZs. Always been one of my favorite wheels. The specs on these are 19x9.5 +19F and 19x10.5 +22R. Although they aren't as aggressive as I wish they were, I got them for a killer deal off a real good buddy, so these will definitely do for now!

    And thats how my car sits as of right now. I'm still in dire of need of a lip kit, and I have a lot of interior work planned out. So be on the look out! I will be updating this thread regularly

    wow nice, i didn't know fender defender did air installs! good on them! GS is looking great, did the wheels come off the white IS? they look familiar.

    Yup! Fender Defender is really expanding their car work, I'd recommend them for just about anything you need done haha. The muffler shop I went to was Ace Muffler in westminster on Goldenwest and Hazard right next to 7-11, definitely recommend me and all my other buddies have been going there for quite some time they'll take care of ya! And yeah! The owner of the white IS is a really close friend of mine haha. Thanks for the support!

    Alright guys time to make a really sad update

    I was hit a couple days ago (this past friday to be exact) by an idiot driver that couldn't wait 5 seconds to make a left turn (made a left turn on a yield green light without yielding me). I'm going to safely assume its a total loss (airbags deployed and frame damage), and even if the adjuster claims its fixable, I'd rather not get it fixed since I know it will never be the same :(. So thats that, thanks for the love and support guys!

    I'm fine thank you guys! Blessed to have come out of that unscratched. I'm waiting for the insurance to get back to me to see what his policy is like. Depending on how it goes I'm either gonna just get another car or I'm going to use the money to fix this car, and take it even a step further :). Don't worry guys, the VIP in me will always be alive!
