Hello everyone

Thanks for the add tezzaworld

Im a very happy owner of the JCE15W altezza gita which I believe is the only one in UK.
I've tried to treat it to some new hsd coilovers but the chassis is different to the JCE10 due to the awd.
At the moment can only find lowering springs so may need a bit of help sourcing coilovers.
My plans are to transfer either the 1UZ FE or the 2JZGTE with the latter being my preferred choice but more £££.
I want to keep it automatic as I'm a lazy bugger, but I plan to get a body kit, calipers, wheels and change the front seats.

Watch this space guys

welcome to the forum. It has been quiet on here lately but hopefully it will pick up again with more owners and more interest in jap imports again

Hi Just got one of these today.As 300 L in gold with cream leather 2002 .Its done 110,000 km and needs quite a bit of servicing, it runs well.The only niggle is no spare wheel and I can't drive it till I get my insurance swapped over.
My client brought it back from Japan and has owned it from new .I live in Hampshire

Hi
Just an update on My Gita.
Fully cleaned also leatherique on seats which have come out very well.
I'll detail outside when the weather warms up.
Plugs changed/ ,they are different from Is 300 being denso sk16r-p11 they had to be the most expensive!
Doing diffs oil[lucas synthetic 75-90 excited to find out if they are Torsen [m58]
Also Atf fluid none of above changed ever!
Next [once i sell my Beetle] are the belts and water pump/thermostat
All left to do after that are disc pads all round and a couple of lower Bushings.
For the outside a few little dings one of them is in the Aluminum tailgate which I am a bit nervous about as Aluminum does not come out so easy and then the bumper scuffs re painted . I tracked the colour down which is Ciabola gold metallic !The colour is growing on me and I understand why they never imported it from Japan.
As I have 5000 limted mileage on my insurance i plan to do two trips this year first to Bavaria; castles and mountains and then in early autumn through the French alps.
I'll get some pictures up soon .
Signing off Andy
