not sure on this, i know the headlights and front bumper are slightly different than altezza on since there is different crumple zone set up on them i think. so cant definitely say it will fit without any mods

Yes the same, is200,is300 and the altezza all the same, the lights are different on the is300, but nothing to do with the bonnet :D

IS300 = 3.0L auto
Altezza = 2.0L manual


many differences engine wise, few differences body wise, interior the same.

Just another quick one on this lads,

found an e-shift steering wheel in the states to suit an IS300 (01-05ish) but mine is a 99 so will it fit?

Looks exactly the same and even has ALTEZZA where the airbag is.


Safe enough to buy?
