1998 Altezza RS200 5AT for sale on Ebay

OK I haven't had this car for very long but I've decided to put it up for sale as I bought my Mrs a Corsa for her birthday and need the extra cash to pay for it. It's a great running Tezza which has had loads of work done in the past. Just passed it's MOT with absolutely no advisories. It owes me a ...

Standard Stereo not working.

OK I just bought my '98 Altezza and noticed during the 6 hour drive home that the stereo wasn't working! It was advertised as having a sat nav (dated Panasonic one which only worked once) DVD/TV player (removed prior to sale) and CD player. My intention is to eventually rip out all the dodgy wiring ...

Re: Almost an Altezza owner :)

Since I got it home I've cleaned the MAF sensor (which made no difference at all until I remembered I should also reset the ECU). It seems to pick up a bit quicker now and has more even power through the rev range. I've also dropped a litre of oil out of it as whoever serviced it for the garage I bo...

Re: Almost an Altezza owner :)

After a flight, a bus, a tram and a 5 hour drive my Tezza is home! A few issues with the garage I bought it from which I won't get into too much on here until some sort of resolution is reached with them but (apart from having no bloody MOT) the car itself seems pretty honest so I'm happy. A lot of ...

Re: Engine Knocking! :( Big End Bearing!

Good call on the oil pump, Mike - i'll look into that. Thanks very much for the link, I'll have a good read of that later :) Ive spoken to a place that does race spec Toyotas and especially 3S series engines and best bit is they are only a few miles from me! They have confirmed that the crank stuff...

Re: Engine Knocking! :( Big End Bearing!

Tom if you call up a decent motor factors and get someone who half knows what they're on about they should be able to cross reference some part numbers for you.

Not exactly the best but Eurocarparts list the Altezza from 1998.

Re: DIY turbo/supercharger/nitrous?

Auto and PowerFC won't mix without doimg a lot of customising. This will be your biggest cost, May end up with a hybrid mix of aftermarket engine control and factory gearbox. You'll need to talk to a decent auto sparky to sort this out. This was my next big question. Seems like this would blow my b...

Re: Almost an Altezza owner :)

Haha! i would love to but Im happy with the standard power and it is my daily driver so need to be getting above 25MPG or so! Your gauges are similar to mine but you have the extra panel in the bottom right with the gear indicator and presumably digital speed too? Did the previous owner specificall...

Re: Almost an Altezza owner :)

Yeah, I think the days are long gone where the tax actually gets spent on the roads to be honest! Could be true mate, but only if the ODO hasnt been converted to miles. Are you sure it has? If it is reading in kilometres then 150,000 is 93,205miles. The only way it could be as low mileage as he cla...

Re: Almost an Altezza owner :)

The speedo on the pics I have looks to be exactly like your profile picture so I assume it's the same!
