Not many people know what an Altezza RS200 is, that its a lot more powerful than the IS200, most people think my car is just an IS200 without the Lexus badge.
IS200 seems to have been marketed as a sort junior-executive saloon for middle aged men with understated bumpers & everything, while it appears the Altezza in Japan was marketed as a lot more sporty with aggressive kits & addons available from the dealer & a screaming high revving engine, probably because the Altezza was a Japanese touring car.
So I don't think its surprising that theres not a lot of UK demand apart from the people who know about JDM, S15's are brilliant but are still being held to ransom at £9000+ even though they are over 13 years old, I don't think its worth the price.
