My Car

Postby tezzax » Fri Nov 23, 2012 8:58 pm

Hey everyone. Thought i'dd post some quick pics of my ride.

So this is my car, which I recently bought from Japan, she is a stock ALTEZZA RS200-Z Tiptronic 5AT

The car is stock apart from the skirts,

I have fitted
HKS panel filter
6000k OSRAM xenons bulbs for the headlights,
8000k same brand for the fogs,
and my daytime LED lights are fitted behind that grill so that they are not very obvious when they are off. They go on with the engine, (they are not controled by the lights controller behind the steering wheel) they turn on when the engine is started and they go into strobe effect flashing as soon as i hit 4500 rpm onwards.

and behind it is my weekend car a 1976 merc 280CE, which the family owned since it was made and bought straight from Germany love that car forever, she's very reliable and solid, it wasnt driven too much, she's clocking 103,000 kms on the dashboard only. :D

Thanks everyone!

Hahaha :D yeah about the JDm antenna ive unscrewed it I dont really like the look of the Altezza with that antenna :?

and naaah not many plans with, I mean I had some, but all shattered when I started looking into an 6MT and the aftermarket support for the MT so what am planing next is selling it, and getting a 6MT here, hopefully in just a few months.

Hey everyone! I finally thought over, and understood a 5AT was proper for me as am always in traffic jams! So 5AT now! :lol: anyway!

since then ive made some changes on my ride, added a TRD hi-Response Muffler and a RECARO seat.

I received this seat this week, its in mint condition :D and dont really know which model exactly it is, its a SRD i think but has something written on the seat so dont really know which model of SRD.. so if anyone can let me know then thanx! :D

I have a 5AT too and although aftermarket support isnt great there is still potential for example i retrofitted a 6MT HKS header on mine...
Can you tell me how you got your bucket seat in? i.e what rails/runners? I want a pair of reclinable bride or recaro buckets but not sure about mounting them as runners for the sxe10 are pretty much non existent...

Yes I've seen the 6MT HKS header on your car. It will be one plan ill be looking forward to do.

Anyway I had ordered the seat like that from a friend in Japan. it came with the rails, I had seen a tag on the rails saying "TOYOTA *XE10" so there should be rails for the Altezza but I think they are very rare. I will take a picture tomorow of where the tag sits, and maybe there could be a model number fof rxact specifications.

I have two red recaros in mine on original recaro rails to fit altezza so they can be got. There very low though and i like sitting low but the seats are raised on the rail using nuts and still very low haha
