So im turning the Y33 Q45 into a clean VIP car.. I have a long ways to go, but one thing i have realized throughout the past years of projects is that even when your done... you never "done". So we shall see where this craziness goes.

Get the hood fixed, coils and wheels and you are halfway there. Then interior work starts.

within the next week the Y33 will get a 2" drop, smoked headlights, the touring model wing, and has just had smoked taillights installed! Also, it will have BTP Garage vinyl placed on the rear window and STS Crew (btp car club) vinyl placed on the windshield! both in royal blue script lettering. Next to be installed is a cima grill! photos to come soon.

good! I love vip cars! I have been through drifting with more than a few 240sx's and drag racing with my N14 SR20DET swapped and heavily modded B14 SE-R. But there is nothing like an incredibly comfortable ride of a VIP car... Until you lower it on small tires hahaha. But honestly, Its the most enjoyable car i have owned! I recommend it! But it never hurts to have a track car on the side!! :twisted:

Yeah my 240's not going anywhere but I want a comfortable 4Dr on the side. Stiif coils on these shitty misouri roads gets old. I was kinda debating what I could do with a Subaru legacy. But ill probably stick with Nissan. about ten years ago I drove several Lincoln town cars, love the leather and air ride.

im not much for american lux cars.. personal prefrence... the ones i can afford just arent attractive to me lol. if you want you can drive mine around the block. its so smooth! im curious to see how it will ride when i lower it on these springs.. off brand but its all i can afford. they are temporary until i can afford coil-overs. i know the ride quality will go down but they are re doing all th roads in jo so im not worried. ;-)

I had a galant that I put a set of tein drop springs on, it really didnt effect the comfort. its all in the struts. Its funny, the movie Tokyo drift, the car that stood out the most to me was the black VIP the uncle was in at the end. They just command respect.

F it, im going vip.
