    Haha good point. #TrackQueen


    Well, it's been a week so far and the splitter is still there, without any real damage. I've scraped it on a bunch of entrances etc, despite being extremely careful and taking extreme angles wherever possible, but so far so good. The goal of making it to at least a month could well be achievable, but time will tell ;)

    Obligatory victory shot:

    Hahaha, now that would be cheating! :aetsch:

    Update: Splitter still on. No damage. Scrapes on the bottom every time I enter my garage, but seems to be pretty tough. Signs are looking good.

    Well guys, it's been almost 2-years since I sold the Aurion, and I'm pleased to say that I bought it back a couple of weeks ago from the same person I sold it to. When I originally sold the Aurion it was a regretful sale, but we were buying our first home and the difference between our offer on the house and what the seller was willing to accept was about the cost of the car, so sadly it had to go. I've wanted it back ever since, so when the opportunity arose to buy it back I decided to take it.

    She still looks the same as the day I sold her, albeit with a few more km's and stone chips here and there, but for the most part she's exactly as I remember. I also have a Lexus IS350 which I take turns driving to work on alternate days, but they both share the garage together and it's a nice feeling to have the old girl back again.

    Thanks bro :D

    Here's some pics of the IS350. I bought it completely stock in May 2018 as a fresh import from Japan, but so far have done: Front and rear bumper lips, throttle controller, carbon wrapped center console, trunk lip spoiler, roof spoiler, Vland tail lights, S2000 muffler tips, AF Dynamic air intake, chrome fog light surrounds, custom LED rear bumper reflectors, rear bumper reflector surrounds, Lexus light up high stop lamp, headlight eyelids, front mudflaps, facelift F-Sport grille, anodized red brake calipers, 20% window tint and a leather stitched dash mat.

    Thanks!

    I've had this particular style of LED rear bumper lamps installed for the last 3-years, but after noticing that one of them had moisture inside the lens I decided to swap them out for new ones - And to my surprise, they now do one with a sequential indicator instead of a normal flashing one, so they're even better than before! :)

    Here's the video I uploaded to YouTube earlier:

    That's one helluva cool numberplate.

    Is there any special reason why you like the Aurion / Camry so much?

    Bcoz it has a proper engine under the hood maybe?
    I doubt he will fell in lu soo much if it was powered by 2.4 engine which is the biggest engine we got for that model.

    Haha yeah, the 3.5L engine is the biggest reason why I bought the Aurion, other than the way it looks, especially in the rear. I wouldn't have bought one if it had the 2AZ-FE 2.4L engine. A bit like the Lexus, it's gotta be the IS350, not the IS250.
