It's been a long time since I didn't upload any pics or generally update any info about my tezz so why not now :) Since I got her of an irish lady, (17 may 2011) I have done following things:

- engine oil (motul full 5W30) and filter (toyota/HKS) changed every ~5000km
- replaced pollen filter
- genuine altezza fuel cap
- genuine altezza front breake pads
- new platinum denso IK20 spark plugs
- cleaned MAF sensor
- cleaned throttle body (thanks ChilledChef)
- replaced genuine fuel filter (thanks jarocki)
- replaced fuel filter (thanks xnickx)
- K&F air filter
- replaced breake fluid with genuine toyota DOT 5.1
- honda S2000 antenna
- bosch aerotwins wipers (will check exact model later on)
- loads of LED bulbs everywhere!!
- yellow fogs
- cusco front strut brace
- absolute no errors from ECU (checked even after one year of usage)
- make two additional keys as the original broke! (got replacement of ebay, like 5-6euro per one)
- front headlights and rear fogs polished
- HSD coilvoers biggest mod so far $$$$$ (damper adjustment set to 8 all around of 16)
- all from black to silver door steps changed (from IS300 fit easy, ebay)
- replaced gearbox oil and diff oil to Motul 75W90
- replaced rear bumper (had small bend)
- replaced coolant
- filled up AC (650g)
- replaced battery to Varta D48
- 4x new Barum Bravuris 2 tires 215/45R17
- 4x alloys totally refurbished

I cannot think now what else I have done to her, but defo this is not over!
Things to do:

- paint calipers in red (any other suggestions welcome) with altezza forum stickers
- full repaint of hood and front bumper + lip
- get genuine black headlights from Nick
- do timing belt + whatever comes with it
- change interior to half-leather
- maybe change backlight from orange to white??
- roof in black matte or glossy
- armrest :D

Only one mod was on the car already: HKS silent Hi-Power exhaust. Time for some photos I have done on last saturday as the day was nice (summer arrived to Ireland only for one day!)

Before taking pictures I got the car washed and waxed in the place on nass road (behind apple green petrol station and macdonalds) lads did very very good job! they even polished my headlight and rear fog lights!
