Who Do You Guys Get Your Altezza Repaired By .....

Recommended Posts

well i went to lexus dealers today and asked them whether they could check my altezza to pin point the problem but they said they dont have the right quipment and cannot gurantee whether they'd be able to find the exact fault so i was better off taking it to some jap specialist.

I dont know of any jap specialist in cardiff, so i was wondering if you guys could tell me who do you get ure car repaird, serviced e.t.c. and if they're not too far from cardiff then i could book an appointment and take my car down there.

If its a diagnostics problem i use a specialist ( DP Motorsports in Warrington)..Bit far from you though...

Servicing can be done by either Lexus or Toyota... Or a specialist...

Jalil,

Did you try that Hyline place i gave a link to??

Also there's a place called Vpec performance but they are in Pontypridd

Also..........thinking out loud, there maybe some places in Bristol too....... get asking on the Toyota owners club forums, skyline owners club, fto owners club, any import owners forum.

Oliver,

I took it to hyline and they ran the diagnostic e.t.c. and found out the fault which was fault code 39. Hoeveer they'yre fully booked till next month hence they cannot do any work on it.

I also heard of some place in bristol im not sure if you mentioned it on here b4 or someone else did. I am trying to find out though.

But they didn't know what a code 39 was did they? Does that tell you something about them?

May phone up these guys?

Based in thornbury just outside Bristol, I did some work experience there and they knew their stuff about Imprezas and evo's (this was about 4-5 years ago) They also remapped ECU's (had some fun in some imprezas there!)

Website not the best tho'

Bristol import centre may help?

hmmm! Colin they had no idea, they said they werre gonna find out from japan and that takes a couple of days.

Colin i have another question for you. You know the fault you identified what are the possibilities? I mean how simple to complex could it be to sort it out?

Oliver, i found that place in Bristol, theyre called protech. They dont have anything before 13th of may. Im gonna phone this other company uve just mentioned and see whether they can be of any help.

thanks a lot guys.
