new here have some ?

what is tom's when talking about is300/altezzas. what are the main changes from the altezza to the is300. thanks for any help in advance. right now i own a 2002 maxima and will be giving that to my wife in a year and will be buying an is300 and a trubo. i will more than likely wear out my welcome :D :D but i hope not. i just want to know as much about the car befor i buy it as i can. so the final qustion what is the first few mods i would want to do. turbo will come about a month after i get the car.

thanks Again

IS300 is the US version of Altezza. The interior is slightly different, the exterior is slighlty different, the engine is different (for most trims), the transmission is different (manual for sure, not sure about auto).

I believe "Tom's" is an aftermarket tuner in Japan.
