Sold my Altezza and bought this:



































So this car is sold and I bought back my old Altezza. It's now much lower on coilovers and running Rota GTR's in bronze the guy fitted the half leather interior from a lexus is200, a cf boot spoiler, cf wrap on a few bits, cf grille, cf headlight eyebrows.

I have BBS LM rep's ordered this morning, gonna leave it low, take off the carbon bits, original altezza grille back on. I think these look best with the Toyota Elegance kit thats on it now, standard grille, no boot spoiler, nice wheels and slammed so thats the plan, pics when its sorted.

A few pics of the AE86 from the shoot with Japanese Performance Magazine:















20valve engine is away at the mo being opened up, inspected, cleaned down, headgasket etc. wiring is being sorted, rs chita fitted etc. and hopefully ready for our Japan-style AE86 festival being held in June at Mondello Park.

Congrats on the feature!!

Too many people try to impress others and build their car to what they know someone will like.
You lose sight on what you like, when you simulate your likes around others dislikes.
