I found the pocket to be pretty much useless. Anything that's in it gets promptly dumped on the floor when you put the boot down. :)

if you have more horsepower you'd surely have higher emissions! Not strictly true, you could have a more efficient engine. I doubt though that the BEAMS engine would be so much more efficient as to supply greater power and lower emissions. If the CO2 figures for the Altezza is not available, how ar...

The gs450h engine is a band E at 186 g/km CO2. €600 a year is not bad for a 3.5l engine!

about the oil cooler, not really necessary on a standard non turbo'ed Altezza imho ...pauses for a second, and thinks is it? Nah, it'd be plainly obvious. Wouldn't it? I'm new to the area of performance cars, if you haven't guessed already. I'm finding out new stuff about this car day by day. :) R.

Hi, Got some PMs about them already - going to be lazy and post replies here. How come I have them off the car? I put back the stock coilovers on the car after I imported it. I know I'll get lynched on a forum like this but they were too much for me. They were obviously set up for Japanese quality r...

Yeah, the Apexi ones were thrown in the boot when I got them, so there could be bits missing alright. The Buddy Club ones were on the car so I know they are ok.

Are all the sections interchangeable? I was talking to a mechanic when I got it first about the exhaust leakage and he said that I'd need to get an original manifold to put the old exhaust back on. I didn't like the noise of it initially, but I've gotten used to it, especially when I found out how m...

I have the original back section alright, can't remember if there was any more to it. The car came stuffed with all the original parts. I'll have to look again. It's loud alright, but it wasn't a problem for the NCT. I was looking for the lambda sensor on the workshop manuals, but couldn't find it. ...
