Re: Service your Altezza (With pictures now)

A lot depends on the kind of driving you do. I do mine every 6 months, which is around 10-12000km but 95% of my driving is 100km/h open road on good roads (but not motorway) If I was doing more town driving the distance interval would be lower, probably in the 8-10000km area.

Re: All the belts

It's definitely worth looking at the water pump as well. The Timing belt has to come off to replace it, and it's unlikely to last to 200 000km. I had mine done at 96000km, and the water pump was beginning to leak at that.

Re: coilover from australia/new zeland

If they are the ones I think they are, don't get them confused with Buddy Clubs.

Re: Need a new c/d player any suggestions!!!

I'm nearly sure I saw one in the boot, must double check but nearly positive so if there is its obviously aftermarket


If it's under the boot floor to the right of the spare wheel well it could be the sat nav unit.

Re: Need a new c/d player any suggestions!!!

If the amp is in the boot it's not a factory one. The factory amp is behind the glovebox

Re: Gear Lever

Short shifter sits slightly higher than the factory one. Great mod to do. Takes about 1/2 an hour to install tops.
