  1. has anyone seen the yellow altezza on pistonheads. it is saying it is a trd edition was there such a edition released? and it says it has a jasma manifold. is this a decat or just a sports cat. i am thinking about emissions for the car tax in uk. as far as i no altezzas are near into the big uk tax group but surely a manifold would make it a lot worse on emissions. any thoughts on if this car would be genuine or if its just some bits added on and labelled a trd car. would appreciate any advice
  2. cheers for advice mate unfortunately i am in position i will have to fly from belfast to southampton to pick it up but i will ask about what happens if the car fails sva and make sure they give me in writing that its not my cost if it does. cheers man
  3. cheers for the advice read that link you gave me seems some good some bad but i guess thats the chance you take. pity the yellow ones are so rare.
  4. 1998-2000 altezza rs200 in yellow preferably with the bumper with the black carbon center section
  5. i have been emailing and one or 2 phone calls to bonsai cars, based in southampton im told. was wondering if anyone on here has heard of them or even better used them to bring in a car. they say for a fee they bring the car over, sva it, register it in your name and you just pick it up and drive. would be great if anyone has used or heard reports of this company as i would appreciate any stories or experiences with them. cheers.

  7. i spoke to a guy that rally preps cars and he said if its for performance ie 0-60 or 0-100 the camcon no good because even if you alter when the cam changes to say 2000rpm if your doin 0-100 it may work in first gear but when you hit 6000rpm and change gear it only comes back down to 4500 where it is as standard so it only used once from a standing start.
  8. my car was a pretty standard 99 se model just coilovers wheels and tints and a backbox. sold it now to save for an altezza. but def say safer going down the coilover route rather than buy springs and not be happy with the way it sits. my 18s rubbed very slightly on the plastic arch liners but was not worth worrying about. could have remoulded it a bit with my heat gun if needed.
  9. turn the wee button off and let her go its much more fun lol Hey there Mr Cool, You wouldn't be trying to persuade me to be dangerous I hope?! Hahaha B x no no i would never suggest such a thing. lol. only in a safe place i always behave in my car
  10. def sounds like diesel or possibly black ice. mate put his girls colt in a hedge at low speed and police said there was fuel spillage. one other thing to check tho my car came very loose at the back for a while and the tyres looked fine but when i took a wheel off she had burnt off the inside edge on the 2 rears. had to get the camber reset and new tyres fitted
  11. turn the wee button off and let her go its much more fun lol
  12. they are 18s with 225/40/18 tyres i might get same wheels for next car once i sell mine
  13. i def dont have any knocking from any of my shocks. before i removed my old top mounts i marked them with a paint marker and as they came out made sure they stayed in position. i think they great value kit. i dont see what would knock????
  14. i got my kit off ebay for around 460 pounds.good kit for money. easy fitted rear silencer is blitz nur spec s
  15. No real problems. Best best,aside from the engine, is to say its for an IS200. brakes/clutch/suspension/ are the same I'd say you will be finne. But as I've said earlier don't import...........get your wad together and offer cash for the yellow one on pistonheads (i'm after it ) you thinking of buying it. looks nice. i was honest with the guy. said i loved the car but would not be in a position to buy till into feb or march if he still had it. and to let me no if he still has it. really low mileage. never asked him if it had any history with it.
