Re: RSM mounting places?

I'm looking to get a triple meter 52mm gauge pod for the dash where the navi console is located, my RS has no navigation so that would be an ideal location for the gauge pod. I was wondering if there are other pods made specifically for the Altezza since the TRD ones are no longer in production.

Some were spliced, and when you start the car and ...

Re: Starts and Drives intermitently......

Still no luck guys :( We checked it alongside another Altezza swapped my Crank Position Sensors and mine worked on the other Altezza.

Re: HELP NEEDED

Did you spray WD40 on a cloth and use that or did you spray it onto the engine and then wipe it with a cloth? I did a lil of both but I took your...
