I have to ask this. I've seen many threads where people put "Alteeza" on their IS300. I've even seen it where they take the "IS300" off and replace it with Alteeza. Is there something I'm missing here? I mean, unless you're in Japan, it's an IS300.

This isn't a hater thread. I'm genuinely curious.

I agree with the OP. You spend so much on a Lexus, why would you want to debadge it as a lower brand, let alone not even a car that is available in the USA?

Go ahead and flame away its just my opinion.

this has been discussed a few times try searching, but i dont get why people really care so much, im not hating im just saying people do mods for personal reasons and what they think is cool. no reason to flame on others peoples opinions because for all we know people might not like the body kit, rims, etc you may choose. just my 2 cent

Had to edit my original thread up top as this is NOT a hater thread. You can put a Honda Civic logo on there if you want, I don't care. I was simply curious

Cause a lot of individuals enjoy having a car that isn't available in the U.S. Has anyone heard about the craze on the Nissan Skyline GT-R? Exactly. Yes because it's a big deal. They're trying to create the same affect.

I wasn't even going to post here until I read this. I'm pretty sure there are other reasons that people like the Skyline GT-R.

your comparison makes no sense unless Infiniti imported the skyline and rebadged it in the US, yet didn't bring over the Nissan version.

I do it because I like it.
I didn't by my car for the "Lexus" brand.

as people have mentioned.. it's a JDM thing. Some understand it, other's don't care. :)

I agree with ChrisCarlos... I'm impartial to the whole thing.

I'll be changing my emblems back to an "L" soon anyways. Not cuz other's think that "altezza" emblem don't belong on an IS300, but because I'm bored of the "altezza" emblem. :lol:

The Infiniti G35 coupe in the US is a Nissan Skyline 350GT in Japan FYI. and people do rebadge the infiniti.

I had Altezza but IMO that its not far from a GSR puting type-R. I think the "L" is much more classy.

But i wont go around flaming thoes guys who do have this calling it ghey and what not...

what ever rocks you boat. :)

I will cause it rocks my boat

You drive an IS300 not an Altezza, its AS stupid as putting hummer logos on a tahoe its not a hummer plain and simple. If you want an altezza then buy one you can get one for cheaper imported then you can an IS300.

Just one of my peeves i have some "JDM" stuff is cool just cause it looks better and isnt available here but im sorry you drive what you drive stop trying to make it something that its not and its never going to be
