very nice, only 20k km? thats crazy low, good find

got any plans for it?
Actually, I have to verify if the TRD coil springs I have on my 3rd Gen camry will fit on the solara (I hope they will fit)

I have to swap the whiteline sway bar too

Same thing for the tires (225/50/16) that are on the camry

The sound system too will be transplanted

And I'm thinking getting a supercharger for next summer

Ohh.. I almost forgot.. VERY DARK black window tinting :)

You have trd springs from a gen 4 camry? If so then they will fit. They wont lower the car as much as the solara trd springs will though.

I don't mean to hate or anything, but is it me, or does the front look dirty?
Yeah, front/rear bumpers have 'minor' scratches..

That's the 'unfortunate' side of buying a used car

Yeah, and then step into one of those "nid-de-poule" (translation: "chicken nest"), that's how they call the holes on our messy roads here in Quebec, and throw your $800+++ by the window.

For those interrested, the TRD Coil Springs from my 3rd gen camry fits the Solara :)

Yesterday I only had the time to swap the front coils, tonite I'll do the read + whiteline sway bar

Before the weekend the solara should be able to take the curves decently

I know, I'm on the oem shocks, not the tokico like the camry.. but I'm planning adjustable shocks before the winter :)

Btw, the drop is lower than the normal 1-1.25" with the camry coils on the solara.. it's more like 1.5-2" It's really nice. The wheel gap is not 3.5 fingers anymore.. it's more like 1 finger :)

I can't wait to see the result tonite and take some pics
