Ahh well I could always buy a Volvo C30 it has all the base guts from a euro Focus ST which the RS is based off of, and it's in an arguably more grown up body. Definitely want to get into a another 2 door hatch for my next daily. Volvo C30, Audi TT, GTi, I love the EP3 Civic too, but it would have to have the proper K20 swapped in.

Not too many proper 2 door hot hatches left out there, they are all Sub Compact class micro cars like the Accent, Yaris, etc. Also like the Mazdaspeed 3, and WRX wagon though. 4 doors are helpful the rare times I do take both kids in my car.

Are the Japanese models the same 4.0 V8/Automatic that the Lexus got?

Yeah they are the same. The differences are in the trim, mine is a CF trim (I think that is what they call it) it comes with rear seat massagers, rear seat heaters and recliners and power everything. It also has independent stereo and climate controls in the back, mine still even has the stock celsior earphones I also have rabbit ears on the back to pick up analogue T.V. signals. It came with a cloth interior because apparently the Japanese don't like leather interiors. Both the LS and Celsior have air shocks, which means I just need to find a controller so I can adjust the ride height.

I had to switch the windshield on the car. I took it to Mike's auto glass and it was just under 300 to swap it out. The Celsior matches up pretty close to the LS which is good because the windshields matched up and made it easy to replace it. Apparently, Soarers and Aristos windshields don't match up with their american counterparts.

Well time can also cause failure to the part, they wear out like anything else. Some people switch to Coils, others switch to airbags and others just buy back ups of the stock ones. If you do keep the stock set up you just sure never drive with it in super low mode.

Yes they did come with leather but lots of the Japanese preferred the cloth interior. I read somewhere in Japan you paid more to not get leather. I could be wrong but leather is considered a bigger deal over here than it is here.

My audi has airbags too. They have been very troublesome. They seem like a great idea, but our climate is hell on them. Really cold winters, and really hot summers. I've had to replace every single air bag, and just 2 days ago the pump started to act up. Won't kick in when it's cold, and when I warmed it up in the garage with the heat cranked to 25c, it started up but was rattling. So I'll be surprised if I can pull that repair off for under $500. Mad

I have all Arnott stuff in my Audi now, I checked for Lexus stuff, but they only make coil conversion kits for it. Which is a shame because there stuff is top notch.

http://www.arnottindustries.com/part_LEXUS_Air_Suspension_Parts_yid7.html

But they do sell universal controllers/inflation systems and air pumps which you could probably make work for you.

http://www.arnottairsuspension.com/products/categoryDetails.asp?catId=14


OEM Audi Stuff


OEM Uses Continental Rubber for the bag, which is a great company in my mind.




Arnott Replacement Bag






For the Audi they even very recently came out with a Performance air bag, that can handle be dumped all the time. (which I don't do on that car. so wouldn't even have been worth it for my application. Actually I'm raised up from stock height a touch.)

Air suspension is fine in any temperature as long as you take the necessary precautions. Semis run it all year round. Just use some air brake anti-freeze in the lines and you should be fine.

Ha I work in Logistics, just a few days ago when it was -30/-45 with the wind chill we had to break apart a set of doubles and drop a trailer in Davidson, all because air wasn't getting to the back trailer.


It can work fine (as it has been on the Audi and our trucks so far this winter) but very cold weather causes problems. Semi's more so, broken glad hands, lines, airbags that won't fill, brakes that won't come off.

In the Audi's case, the pumps is original. It would probably work fine if it was brand new. The rattle tells me the clearances have gone to shit.

Also my Mazda MPV had rear air shocks, and in winter every morning it would be squatting like a dog . In summer it never leaked out.

My favourite is -35 with a frozen leveling valve stuck open and dumping all of the air out of the system eventually leading to a truck that can't move due to the brakes engaging. Fun times in the middle of McDonald Street during lunch hour rush. Smile
