ohmy.gif well well well .... I'm baacckkk

Well kinda wink.gif

4 years after selling my '99 RS200z I'm back with a '01 RS200z L Edition
Just picked it up on Thursday ... it's 100% stock aside from having a Kenwood stereo head unit rather than the stock Minidisc/CD unit

I wonder if anyone is still around? XNickX and Greeneyes still here somewhere?

Hi to everyone else wink.gif

Thanks all ... I'll sort out some pics shortly.

My last ride had the traction controll turned off, and some ECU/chip stuff done by previous owner, removing some of the limits.

Plans for this one, not many to be honest. Am older and have kids now so not too much 'toy' money wink.gif new treads, replace some of the rubbers in steering and brakes (they starting to perish), and good flush of systems (tranny, power steering etc), but I think I will leave it pretty much stock.

Having said that though, some one dropped the bonnet on a charging system when it was in the yard, so the paint has cracked. So either I'll put a new bonnet on it, or maybe I'll wrap the entire thing in matt vynil (maybe matt gunmetal colour)

Yep- still here, but in Cairns on work fixing up a rental house, so no i'net apart from the library every few days!

Came up in the KE70 with the seats removed & full of handyman's gear... 3 days of 700-800km a day! Greeneyes is still in Orange.

Are you still around Howick??

Hey all .....

AltezzaGirl ... You still got the Yellow Tezza?
Xero ... 3 cars? Really .... Okay well I'm not there yet.
Greeneyes, cairns ... Okay thats a wee way to go. Yes still around howick (same place actually)

Kinda strange to be back driving an Altezza after so many years, feels like I never left wink.gif
Although this one is buttery smooth, no vibrations, smooth gear box etc sweet ride.
