What is the difference between a Qualitat and a Altezza?


I could be wrong :oops: but the main differences are : the body kit, wheels, colour the seats are RED and BLACK just
really all the styling is different. Engine and all other bits are the same me thinks :? :?

Thanks for the warm welcome. I am new to the Altezza side of things, so I'm not sure if I could answer that many questions. From looking at my car vs. looking at a regulare RS200, the big differences I see are like what Damok said. Like the Modellista body kit, fogs, head/taillights, interior, instrument cluster, wheels, and suspension. Thanks Zoran for posting a brochure, back in Aug, which is for my car.

I don't speak or read Japanese, so it makes it a little difficult to get parts. I either have to use a translator or take P/N or diagrams with me. Some places have someone that speaks a little English which makes things much easier. I am trying to learn but its not as fast as I would like.

Yesterday, I went to price some lower ball joints and I wasn't able to communicate my needs. So, I went back home and printed up the Diagram and took the P/N with me and went back. It worked out much nicer this time. Lower ball joints 3,570¥ each from Toyota.

U.S. Air Force. I will most likely be getting my stuff at this place... http://www.upgarage.com/ It's a chain over here. You should check out some of the things they have on there site. On the search bar on the right just put in your chassis number, SXE10.
