Windscreen replacement

Hi. I'm pretty sure I already know the answer but if someone could confirm it that'd be awesome! I'm getting my windscreen replaced due to a crack but national windscreens are a bit stuck finding the model (like most people!). I'm assuming that the screen's exactly the same as an IS200 but obviously...

Re: Car's pulling to the side

erm, haven't really checked steering rack or wheel bearings but track rod side of things is fine. I'd have thought that wheel bearings would get picked up on an MOT, which it passed fine last month?

Car's pulling to the side

Hi, I hope someone can help...? I've been having on-going issues with my Atezza pulling right when under power and then snapping back to the left once the power lets off. I've got it lowered on coilovers and had the full 4 wheel alignment done at the time hoping that would sort it out... it didn't. ...

Thanks for the reply... I'll get the car back in at the weekend, along with a description of what they might have done wrong!

Cheers

oil temperature gauge stopped when timing was done...

Hello... Just a quick question for anyone who's done their own belt change on their Altezza. Mine's just got out of the garage after having the timing belt/water pump etc done and the oil temperature gauge hasn't worked since. I've spoken to my garage who are pretty certain they didn't do anything (...

Re: Silver Altezza Breaking has begun. PM requests.

Hi... sent you a PM yesterday RE: those used coilovers, but not sure if it actually sent or not (it's in my outbox but not sent messages, but it's the first PM I've sent so it might be supposed to do that?). Anyway, just wondering what sort of price we're looking at for the coilovers, assuming you a...

Re: Silver Altezza Breaking has begun. PM requests.

Hi... I've noticed this thread for a while but didn't really need anything, until now! Do you still have any sort of suspension parts available, or has the car now been crushed?

I just need some used dampers while I'm saving for some coilovers!

Hello again and thanks for the replies and advice... bit gutted as they were really nice rims, but i did have a feeling they'd be a little on the wide side! I'll definitely check out that site as well as i'm desperate for some new wheels, but obviously need to make sure they fit! I've managed to pic...

tezza virgin with wheel size query...

Good evening... literally just picked up an altezza yesterday and despite a 15 hour round trip and a quick lesson in how twitchy they can be in slippy conditions, am absolutely loving it so far! However, i don't really like the wheels on it and wondered if anyone knows if these: Front wheels : 235/4...
