Previous Is200 Owner... Possibly Buying An Rs200 Next Week..

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I owned an IS200sport a couple of years back and i just loved it.. it was a great drivers car. i've had a cuple of cars since but none have matched it in terms of driving feel, handling, smoothness etc..

now I've seen a reasonably priced very tidy we number in the version of an rs200 altezza..

I was just wondering if you guys could let me know what would be the main differences between the two (if any)other than the beams engine and power improvement of course.

I mean can i expect the same comfort and handling characteristics.. things like that..??

Thanks in advance..

Appreciate the help peeps ;))

You dont get the sunroof, headlamp washers,half leather seats or premium sound system as standard,but extra power makes up for it...LOL

      Hi,
      In need of parts in kensington green 6q7 :
      front bumper nearside wing nearside front door  nearside rear door I don't need the door cards, just the door with window, exterior handles and electric folding mirror for the front, plus if the bumper has the washer jets that would be great!  
      How much would I be looking at paying for all of these parts? if I could get these delivered that would be excellent!
      Apologies if this has been posted in the wrong section, a bit frantic at the moment.
      Best,
      T

      Hello,

      So I recently got into a little accident with my is200 manual and now need a new rear hub, and maybe other parts although unsure what yet. Question is will parts from a is200 auto suffice. So I wanted this post to outline the differences.
      I know the differential is different with a higher ratio i believe, and obviously the tranny. But is there anything else?
      I have a guy ready to sell me a bunch of parts from an auto is200, but I'm sceptical with mine being a manual
       
      thanks

      Hi ,
      I have some problem with my 1999 IS200. When I try to open doors using key, only driver door opens. Power door locking doesn't work. When I try to close doors using indoor switch, it doesn't work as well.  Same goes for locking it with the key fob. Only lights blinks but doors don't open or close. Opening boot with key fob works correctly.
      Has anyone any ideas ?

      Hello
      The ear-splitting factory alarm on my 1998 LS400 has been going off inappropriately for a few months now.  This usually happen just as I lock it, but not exclusively, or when I switch the engine off.  It does not immobilise the vehicle (can be driven with the alarm still sounding) and can only be stopped by unplugging the Battery.  So far I have dialled down the proximity sensor underneath the centre armrest and changed the batteries in the fobs.
      Since the alarm doesn't have any noticeable effect other than deafening me, my next move will probably be to find the siren and unplug it.  I don't think the vehicle Battery is the problem as it's relatively new and doesn't have any issues.
      Any advice would be much appreciated.
      Thanks
