I think I'm the first one to have these:cool:

Like them better than the other ones...

Tinted 20% All around (I have eye problems and my skin doesn't like the sun anymore)
The subs are 12" Blaupunkt's and I have the Kicker series for components, all driven by two Blaupunkt 350 watt amps.
The rest is pretty straight forward.
I know I need a drop, just haven't decided. The stock rims are going back on tomorrow, selling the Enkei's to a friend. Want something with a lower offset.

Enyoy!:cool:

Look what arrived!


Some interesting reading...



Stock on the left, DEPOT on the right.

Very nice!

Any plans on lowering it?
Thank you:D

Yep, mentioned that in my opening statements. Just haven't decided on what springs yet. Probably the Eibachs unless I can find something a tad lower. I like the drop the S-Techs provide, just don't like the performance of a linear spring and I am a scatterbrain. I'll forget how low I am and my bumper will be trashed in no time.....
I got spoiled on TRD's with my 9thgen, Only thing is the drop falls just a little short of where I would like it. I hate that!:lol:
And no, I'm not going with coilovers...yet.

Thats ALOT of TRD accessories... You putting TRD performance parts in there?

-Springs
-Clutch
-Torque Differential
-Limited Slip Differential
-Quick Shifter
-Strut Brace
-Sway Bar
-Drop in Filter

If not, that is a lot of TRD show, for no TRD go IMO

WTF? ALOT? 3 is a ALOT?:lol:

A TRD shift knob and license plate cover..ohh and the lanyard implies I have to have everything TRD makes.. Fortunately that's all the TRD that will be displayed on this car as for trinket type accessories... No stickers or badges thank you...
First of all, there isn't really any go in TRD for the GenTen!
And FYI I haven't spent one cent on TRD anything...yet:cool:

Some of it is carry over from the last car which had the LSD, Springs, and TRD Muffler. Ohh wait! I have a TRD mug, I have a TRD stainless steel BBQ grilling set, and a USB TRD mouse pad too. There's more but I forget..
I have too many things TRD:headbang:

This one will get similar treatment. I already have TRD short throw installed.
I already miss the LSD from my last car, but that would be last if I go FI or when I have to install a new clutch.
Drop in filter, been there done that, I will have an Injen shortly..don't engage me in that topic please.
The front strut bar and rear sway are likely to happen, when I'm not sure.
I will likely not be using TRD springs.
TRD probably wont be releasing a muffler. That's probably my favorite of them all. I really miss that one. Probably the best sounding muffler I've heard.

Woah... Touchy...
I was just curious about what else you have in there.
I was just making an observation. No need to PMS over it.

You stated your opinion, and I stated my opinion of your opinion with a laugh.
Perhaps you missed that I had a smile on my face and if we had this convo in person, you'd get it.. It's called jovial banter, there was no offense either way;)

The rest was sarcasm, get used to it:cool:
