everything i ever wished for

such a refined, classy and stylish car.
even at its current age it puts 90% of modern interiors to shame, full leather seats, doesn't look plastic or cheap, quality electrics and buttons.
the only thing thats failed is the lense in the CD player has worn out so will no longer recognize CD's , i just installed an AUX cable into the back so i can play music via my phone.
the speakers are out of this world too, the premium sound system blows any other i've heard straight out of the water, the factory subs easily make the windows and mirrors shake.
i mainly picked this car for the 2jz engine, which i have turbocharged and its now making 400hp on STOCK ENGINE! this thing is incredible.
a lot of car for your money
comes with torsen limited slip differential.
everything is built to last and definitely over engineered
