More Yesterday.
Autocross all day, then attended a twin meet I helped organize.

Saw my first Lexus bumper swap. Needs some finessing to dial it in.

Ain't for me but I assume he did it to be "different", We actually have a lot of twins running around locally.

the fit looks horrific. but i can see the appeal of the style. definitely looks good from far away, but far from looking good close up!

I actually used to like that bumper until I saw it in person.

The "grill" portion that's actually perforated on a Lexus? Solid here

The black grill trim around the edge that's a separate (usually chromed) part on a Lexus? Not separate, the paint shop has to mask it off and spray it separately.

The fitment looked real crappy too and I was surprised since Aimgain seems like a legit company

Owner thinks it's a rep part. Fully aware fitment isn't great, I recall he mentioned he bolted it up the night before and still needs work to get it fitting how he wanted.

More just excited to come out since we have been slacking on local club meets this year

I think the Lexus grille looks absolutely awful on the 86.

it suffers from the same problem that lexus itself had. if the car was NOT designed with that grille in mind, it does not look good.

and even then they match better on an actual Lexus.

I personally like the Lexus grilles, they have this neat three dimensional effect that you can see in person that you do not get in photos...but this just doesnt work at all.

Just because it can be done, doesnt mean it should

Yeah...they could just pay double, sacrifice the MT and buy the actual RWD car that the second GR86 was cloned from...the RC-F.

They wouldn't have to mod the front bumper for that Lexus spindle either.

Had some PDR work done to the driverside door. Upper left side between the mirror and fender. They also gave me a quote for the entire car which I declined @ 1k




All of this happened one weekend at the cottage from acornes falling onto the car
