    How much is the budget though? If budget of an IS250, I'd rather get a Mark X and save the balance for repairs and mods, otherwise just go crazy and find an Evo 7 which is his original dream car to begin with!

    no la. JZs fit better in Altezzas than in e36. Less customization and in fact - it should be PNP. But I want NA this time round.

    I had a look at one for 28k. Pretty impressed but the maintenance is a bit of a concern.

    Evos are out of the picture for now. Can't afford them.

    Done RIGHT, anything can fit in anything.
    Done WRONG, nothing will fit right in anything.

    Just cause it's more "direct" doesn't mean it would be done right.

    Thought you'd learn your lesson by now?

    Why so many votes for the automatic tezza? So many wuss here meh. hahahaha (psst my car is auto too).

    I believe the auto tezza is detuned a bit right, versus the manual version.

    Not really. Just that it's 5-speed auto vs 6-speed manual. So the ratios are obviously different. I very very badly want a manual Altezza. I've seen a few and they are all above 45k. The auto cheapest good condition (of the RS200 specifically. Beams only not the 1G engine) is 32k. Assuming in the near future I find the dash, wiring, GB and a good foreman to swap it for me and perhaps give it a hefty 10k, it's still cheaper than buying a manual straight up.

    So although I really really like the manual Altezza, I'm leaning towards an auto Altezza RS200 a lot.

    Mark X maintenance is not too bad, especially since the car is very reliable to begin with. Parts also still quite easy to get. Later if got more money and itchy, can easily swap pnp with 3.0ltr 3GR or even 3.5ltr 2GR engines, even better those with TOM's supercharger too. Got one in our club already swapped to the TOM's 3.0ltr supercharge engine, some swapped to 3.5ltr without supercharger, and some swapped to 3.0ltr without supercharger. All pnp only.

    I hate to say this but I shall curse you running into problems when doing a “straightforward” swap.

    You want a manual buy an effing stock manual, as the Chinese say don’t catch worm into backside.

    http://autoworld.com.my/forum/index.php?/topic/95583-toyota-altezza/

    According to this the manual is more powerful cause it revs higher and comes standard with LSD on rear differential. For the love of god stop being a sohai and buy cars to mod and run into problems.

    PS you know I don’t want you doing sohai shit again

    Thank you bro. HAHAHA! I do want the manual but the cheapest good example is 46k negotiated which I don't have. You loan me 10k ah?

    Yeah well, I'm highly doubting the cost of those "easy to get reliable parts". Whilst I know it's a toyota, it'll be MarkX maintenance costs. Anyway I'm thinking about the whole thing very thoroughly.
