Re: Problem with rpm

I had the exact same problem with mine i put diagnostics on it and read no problems. But i did do something to stop the issue but not fix it and has not happened since it started 4 years ago. There is a plug that i plugged out and shorted it with a wire. This bypassed the problem. I have just never ...

Re: car insurance

Unfortunately there is literally no options available. Even tried classic insurance but needs to be 20 years and even then may not pass for the type of car it is.

Re: car insurance

Well there was no luck finding anything cheaper. I disgustingly had to cough up the amount and be done with it. The car is up for sale for the right price so that seems to be the only way to get money back on it. Which is a shame as i love the car and has never let me down.

Re: Altezza cranks but not starting

Hello. Yes i have been very quiet on the site as of late. Having owned the car for 8 years and counting it seems very hard to own an altezza these days. Insurance costs for cars over 15 years and a japanese inport is just making owning the car an effort. 8 years ago was a different story altogether....

And just to note. I'm 29. Driving the car for 8 years and 10 years no claims bonus. Madness

Re: car insurance

I have rang every company under the sun and noone will insure me and anyone that does quotes over 3k. Has anyone gone through thi...

Re: car insurance

So i managed to get Chill insurance through Aviva down to 765. So i just went with them. Really tough insuring a car over 15 years old/ Japanese import.

Re: car insurance

Aviva won't insure cars over 14 years old as of the 22nd of May. The search goes on. It's beginning to become a pain to be an Altezza owner even after 7 years of having the car
