Lovely work James!
Still the 4k in the KE? I saw the side-draught there...

Once you go black, you'll never go back .... cars I mean :-) My last three cars have all been black manuals. Hard to keep clean, but look really mean :-) Very straight looking Altezza too.

[f**k]EN PRIMO! MY 3 MOST FAVORITE CARS! ALTEZZA, AE101 LEVIN AND AN AE86. BOW DOWN!
JamesAE86 - November 24, 2009 03:37 PM (GMT)
pics were taken at a friends house, that ae101 was my daily driver before I got the altezza, the guy bought it from me. thats his ae86 then.
spot the car with standard suspension height!!!
i lowered the levin and fitted 15'' work rszr's after I imported it from Japan, great little car

good idea or bad idea to replace my standard steering wheel (with airbag) with a new nardi? opinions?
also i have 3 52mm omori guages, id like to fit them above the air vents in the centre console in a cf surround, where can i get one that will fit there? thanks!!!
JTMILLER - December 21, 2009 12:28 AM (GMT)
For the guages you can try looking for a TRD holder, but they are very rare, someone on this forum made their own with a spare tray and a wrx holder. Came out looking very nice.
If you get a steering wheel without an airbag i think you will need to get a trd airbag canceler so you dont get a light flashing on your dash constantly.
JamesAE86 - December 21, 2009 01:09 AM (GMT)
cool, can the trd holder be got new still?
xnickx - December 21, 2009 01:24 AM (GMT)
No the TRD ones have been discontinued sorry but this can still be purchased:http://z4.invisionfree.com/lexusaltezzaclu...wtopic=9607&hl=
Only thing is, like the TRD holder, it only suits 60mm gauges instead of 52mm gauges
JamesAE86 - December 27, 2009 03:20 PM (GMT)
sold the ke :(
still have these two to play with though
JamesAE86 - January 2, 2010 04:07 PM (GMT)
been offered these for the altezza:
are they too bling?
JTMILLER - January 2, 2010 05:59 PM (GMT)
nice, a bit chunky for my liking but might look alright, especially if you change the blue air valve cap to a gold coloured one :)
JamesAE86 - January 2, 2010 10:09 PM (GMT)
Just bought a set of these in Japan, offsets aren't amazing but they'll do for now!
Front: 8J x 18 +50
Rear: 9J x 18 +50

also I remember seeing red 'euro' style lights on a japanese black altezza in a youtube vid but cant find it now, anyone know it or have pics of euro's on a black car?
JTMILLER - January 5, 2010 05:36 PM (GMT)
Nick can get them for NZD$285 plus shipping, theres also a few more styles in there :)
JamesAE86 - January 5, 2010 06:33 PM (GMT)
yup, thats where I stole the pic from :) just wanna see them on that black car before I invest :)
JamesAE86 - January 7, 2010 06:09 PM (GMT)
instead of starting a new thread, what is the size of the standard/OEM front brake disks on an altezza please?

havent seen them on a black car but theres a blue tezz (not mine!!) in palmy north with these on and it looks pretty gay with them....my opinion anyway, factory ones looks better than the euro ones.

So guys, a year ago I sold this altezza and bought a 320bhp year 2000 Subaru Impreza Type R WRC edition running 320bhp. Was great fun and very quick but I only ever planned on having it for a short while due to the running costs. I sold that car last week and at the weekend bought back my old Altezza!! The guy had fitted Tein coilovers, 18'' Rota's :(, a full leather interior from a lexus is200 (which I love), carbon wrap in a few places on the exterior :( carbon headlight covers, he let the headlights go very bad again, changed the altezza grille to a carbon one and drilled the boot to fit a carbon rear spoiler. I plan on leaving the suspension as it is, the interior as it is and get rid of the carbon rear spoiler, carbon grille changed to standard, change the rotas to 18'' bbs lm replicas if I can get them in an altezza fitment, leave it slammed, clean up the headlights again. After a few days of driving it I can safely say I'm glad to be back in my old Toyota :)
pics of the Altezza when I get her sorted again :)

you ae86 is one of my favorites! so so mint!
War_Machine - May 27, 2011 10:20 AM (GMT)
I just sold my AE86, I regret it heaps, since I just got a BEAMS engine for it.
Hachi obsession. I have to go to Ireland one day, just for the AE86 culture.
I know L tuned sells the gauge holder but at $700USD a pop, its a bit too expensive.
I will see if I can get a copy made up from mine at a decent price.
