regal blue


1. Straight from the dealer to the tire shop - toyo proxes4s
2. tint
3. sirius radio install

In the works, by order of priority
4. stainless steel brake lines, performance pads, and brake oil flush
5. suspension mods - new coilovers and sway bars
6. Accessport + stage 1 octane 91 tune.

That should make my GT what it should have been stock.
