Newbie from Kenya

Postby Tamjeed » Sat Aug 16, 2014 1:36 pm

Hello everyone,
Newbie here all the way from Kenya.
I recently got back from uni and the Altezza was sort of passed down from dad. Now I've been driving it for years so what I really have inherited is the responsibility of maintenance (and the costs that come with it :P )
Naah. I'm nothing but thankful. Absolutely LOVE this car! and the Altezza in general.

I'm not exactly a highly knowledgeable petrolhead and what little i do know has come from the few maintenance jobs we've carried out on this one.
So I'm looking to all the TezzaGurus for their wisdom.
Teach me, masters!

Its in pretty good condition.. engine and trans are great, the exhaust i think needs replacing as it sounds a little raspy.

This is just an introduction...and i've attached a few pictures.
I'll ask about parts later on and hopefully I can learn something and keep this beast going for many more years to come. :D

once again, GREETINGS TEZZAWORLD!!

The factory exhaust (and many aftermarket) is just raspy so it's not faulty, but it is a pretty terrible sound haha

Good luck and welcome!

More of a rattle sound at the muffler... like theres flakes bouncing around in there or something..
Could even be internal rust?? it IS a fourteen year old car....
