hi chaps.
as some of you may know i swapped my mint condition na altezza for this car along with £500.
i have since had time to carry out a few checks while at work (toyota main dealer) and it would appear that there are a few items missing from the list below.



Vehicle Model : SXE10-TURBO
-Yamaha tuned, Beams straight 4 cylinder Turbo Charged DOHC 16 Valves DUAL VVT-i 1990cc
Tuned with HKS and BLITZ parts to 306.4BHP
-HID Headlights, TRD Front strut bar, Rear wheel drive
-Upgraded Heavy duty Limited Slip Differential nope its a standard non lsd differential.
HKS TD04HL-19T-6 Turbocharger
HKS F-PRO ECU
HKS MAX Plugs nope they are denso plugs
HKS front Allocated Turbo intercooler
Greddy Hard pipe kit
TODA High cam, nope they are both completely standard cams and it doesnt appear to have had the cam gears touched.
Third 550cc injector,280l of third fuel pump yes the injectors are 550cc ones but the pump is completely standard.
Koyo aluminum Radiator
purple anodised cooling panel
Full Leather interior electric seats nope the passenger side is a manual one and the drivers side one has a nackered slider motor.
18" RAYs 57G Gramlights (all need refurbing)
4 " Kakimoto full exhaust system
HKS Gasket 1.2mm
FPR Aero bonnet
Upgraded oil pump nope standard toyota unit
Upgraded water pump nope standard toyota unit
Upgraded fuel pump as above no its a standard one.
Oil catch Tank
HKS coilover Suspension
Heavy duty limited slip differetial again as above its a non lsd diff. and the case has never been opened.
Blitz Air cleaner
Aftermarket air flow meter no its running a toyota map sensor.
Strut brace front and rear
Blitz turbo timer doesnt work because the loom has been chopped to s@3!
Sport facing clutch, TRD Flywheel, nope both standard items and the dual mass flywheel is dead.
Blitz booster controller
Tien H front lower Brace nope its a trd one that is cracked
unknown rear strut brace
Samco piping kit
speakers have been fitted into centre of rear seats
HKS power gauges. not wired in.but in place attempted wiring has taken place and the rev counter has been affected, i have since rectified this by removing about 5 metres of redundant wiring.
HKS grounding kit
sticker bombed fuel cap
Pioneer headunit
Sub and Amp fitted


do you think it would be reasonable for me to ask for some of my money back as the car is not as described?

my altezza was immaculate apart from the baffles in the trd back box being loose.
i had a buyer interested for £4k but i would have had to remove the vinyl and craig had said the lowest he would take for this turbo`d one was £4300.

i dont know the car or either party involved.you can ask but i think it was up to you to check it out in the first place and make
sure you were happy with what you were buying/swapping.
hopefully he has the decency to give you some of your money back to change a few of the items.
but to be honest,if he knew it didnt have the parts listed when selling,i doubt he will give you anything :?

he is a mechanic so he would have known if things like the diff were correct and if components where newer than there surroundings,
i`m in communication with him now via text and he is saying that he has had to spend loads on getting my car legal as the tyres were bald ( they weren`t when i last owned it)
and that he has had to have wiring repaired because the headlight was only getting half power. this was due to a blown 15amp fuse and there was nothing at fault with any of the electrical componentry or wiring. ( if he has been charged for it then he has been ripped off) much like i feel i have been ripped off.

could i get the police involved? as he has sold something that is completely different to what he has advertised?


if any mods see this please feel free to move it into a more relevant section rather than a for sale advert.

as far as i was aware that was on the car. i brought it thinking this was on the car. if you search through from when i brought this car i put up a spec sheet with these exact specs on it.
i simply copied and pasted.
but then again, we swapped car and on 4/11/11 i got pulled over for front tyres being illegally low,front number plate being illegal,baffles hanging out the exhaust. and for some reason you think im gonna lie about being pulled over.
so i now have points on my license.
and also the key had been super glued together and has no broken/snapped

you came down and looked over the car. we took it for a drive.and then went to a tezza meet together. so its not like you were rushed. you liked the car.
so the following sunday we met up and swapped cars. again you were happy.

thats all i have to say on the matter really.i havent lied at all. i have said what was on the car only from what i was told was on the car.im not a mechanic.

the key was in far better condition than the one you gave me which has been messily glued together.
how am i going to check a diff, a fuel pump, cams, wiring and underneath the car by the side of the road or in a pub carpark?
i don't want to get into an argument on a forum.
are you willing to return some of the money i gave you as well as my car or not?

no, im not going to return the money or car.
i dont feel i have done anything wrong at all.
im not a mechanic, and never checked to see if the car had the mods listed when i brought it.
i simply copied what i was told was on it and thats what i believed was on the car. and had no reason to doubt it.
