dude,
i would almost sell you mine, but being as i was looking at getting the A'PEXi, you have kind of frightened me off of that, so i am not sure i am ready to part with my factory ECU just yet...

Re: hi

for what it is worth, i have yet to meet a satisfied IS200/AS200 owner...

Re: TEIN basic dumpers

the coil overs will come with their own pillow ball upper mounts (for the front two), you can get the premium upper mounts for your coil overs, but make sure you opt for those ones, and not the premium upper mounts for the springs (of which i have a set). and i agree about getting the full alignment...

Re: coilovers or springs

i installed TEIN type flex coilovers. i love 'em. think i would have been satisfied with springs and adjustable dampers though. big price difference. i have some TEIN pillow ball upper mounts (for use with springs not coil overs) http://www.tein.co.uk/product/pillowball_upper_mount.html" onclick="wi...

TRC 2. ABS 3. check engine 4. SNOW each light should continuously blink on and off. if not, count the num...

Re: Should I strip and sell for parts??

man, i really hope you do not end up parting out this car. the Greddy turbo kit is such a great upgrade. i know how annoying it can get though. having a car that you can not drive sucks. are you sure that you can not just remap your fuel delivery? there is no one else on this site who is using the A...

Re: UK TezzaWorld meet,..... whos interested ?

i am 98.76% sure i will be there, but do not use my location to calculate, as there seems to be more of a chance of the Irish and Scottish to show if the meet is north west England, and the more the merrier! I do not mind driving a little more to improve the chance of extra people showing up.
