@stedaley is that a GS estate? Had no idea there was such a thing.

edit: checked the reg and it's an Aristo? And maybe an optical illusion, as there appears to be no estate. How close are these to the Lexus GS?

The Aristo is the JDM only version of the first and second generation Lexus GS.
The S300 model has the 2JZ-GE engine and the V300 model has the twin turbo 2JZ-GTE.

My 2010 Nissan Cube Z12. Not supercharged or turbo but has loads of stickers on it for extra horse power

A bittersweet moment last night, selling the Legacy GTB after 11 happy years. Best (and most reliable) car all-round I've ever owned.

A keen buyer (especially once he hit secondary boost in 3rd) made for the easiest sale ever, but still a bit sad to see it go.









Photos for posterity, farewell old friend.
Had a B4 RSK similar to that smile

Yeah it’s not standard ride height, I’ve just had ohlins dfv road and track Coilovers fitted with New whiteline front/rear arbs and droplinks. Full fast road geometry set up to ohlins recommended settings, only driven it about 50 miles since fitted but handling is amazing and damping for uk roads is perfect, glides over rough and uneven roads incredibly smooth.

Sounds great, I'm not a fan of most coilovers but always hear Ohlins are proper stuff thumbup
