I've had my Altezza for two weeks and wanted one for over three years, it was a very happy day for myself when I found one.
I have already found a lot of information on this forum that's been more that helpful and i''ll do my best to return the knowledge.

I'll gonna be working in Stratford not far away!

As far as I know the process is book mot on chassis number, take it to post office register it with the mot proving it's identity and tax it.

It costs about £50 to register it and not sure on mot cost.

Gonna be going through the process myself soon as well.

Sound, give me a buzz when you're over.
You will have to convert the speedo to mph.
I found a chip that you install which converts it.
I am waiting on that now, then I can get it MOT'd and registered.
I'll keep you up to date, MOT is £40, registration is £55 and the chip is £35.

Can I ask where you got the chip from? I'm looking for one for my tezza, I'm sick of just driving the same speed as everyone else and im too lazy to work out the conversions :p
I'm down south abit from you two near reading so not a million miles away :)

I am still waiting on the chip, should have it in the next week.
Ill let you know if i have any issues with the MOT.
you can get an app that uses your gps to tell you your speed.
here is the link to the chip, it also de-limits the car

That's what I was using for a while but I'd just rather have the speedo be in mph to be honest, I don't like have my phone stuck to the screen :p
