Re: Altezza Prices in current market?

I'll be showing some of the examples on this site for starters. The amount of wrecks out there now is sh*t :evil: and no doubt that's what the insurance guys will be looking at. If i got 3 grand it would/should cover the cost of the repairs at least I'd say €3000 is what they will offer for the car...

Re: Front Upper Ball Joints

Thanks folks,

@ Supertezz - just got them the other day, waiting to have them fitted next week.

Front Upper Ball Joints

So, another tezza to fail the NCT on a Front Upper Ball Joint. Has anyone bought these anywhere? Waiting on Nick to reply with a price but I don't think Toyota do the ball joint seperately from the wishbone. So if anyone knows where or how much it is just to get the ball joints it'd be much apprecia...

Re: Driver Window Problem

The exact reasons i'm not sure on. It's to do with resetting the window motor so it knows where the ''fully closed'' position is. Apparently it happens a lot for people that have had to have the glass replaced. But the exact causes or reasons i wouldn't be so sure on.
Glad it worked for you tho :)
