    ....on second thoughts, challenge un-accepted.
    They have a FWD 4ZC1-T like the Piazza, so you could drop in a 2.6 litre Rodeo engine with a turbo if you like uncontrollable torque steer

    These things are on my bucket list, Green with the 2JZGTE and stock rims.

    I didn't know you could bring them in until I saw your post elsewhere. Well done. Look forward to seeing what you do to it.

    Awesome pick up mate, and IMO the wheels look good and suit a VIP style car like this!

    Having owned a 1999 GS300, it was the best car I've ever owned. Thing was majestic.

    I ruined it. Painted, slammed on 20s, TV'S, Subs... the Sydney sex spec days. But fuck I miss my Lexus.

    Nice Merc W211!


    Subscribed for finger pointing. Should be good a one.

    Connects automatically as you would expect when you turn car on, sometimes Spotify opens and starts playing automatically (phone setting) but takes 30 seconds plus, I just start it manually because impatient.
    Turn stereo off while playing it will pause music, turn back on and it will start playing again.
    Only plays from disc 1, if you change to other discs for whatever reason it just plays nothing, switch back to disc 1 and it continues playing your music.
    Has phone functions too, but requires mounting the mic somewhere and if you're feeling fancy the buttons. Have not done this, but calls that do come through sound mint on the car speakers before switching to phone speaker (while parked of course)

    All in all, well worth the $100 and keeps interior stock looking


    *This is with Android, using Spotify, on the IS300. Your mileage may vary.

    Fuck, the spending has to stop somewhere :-)

    I'll clean them up a bit, take them apart to do them properly. They might work really well with the slammed VIP look, and even if I don't like it, making them presentable will be necessary to flog them anyway

    Ah I see, that sounds nice and easy. I'll have a look at mine and see if it has a similar connector (the Century stacker is in the glovebox though).

    Not Jap, but should work if it's anything like any Toyota from that era. The Yatour bluetooth adaptor with 5+7 plug. Works mint in my IS300, headunit just thinks it's playing a CD. $100 eBay.
