Default sold my 2IS... :(

time to pick up a manual altezza anyone know someone who's selling?

all I've found are automatic ones...I've checked all over FH and Craigslist as well..no one has one on the market.. help me out please CLH!

I was thinking of buying a automatic one and swapping the tranny but I talked to my mechanic and he told me to not waste my time and money as this kind of swap is just too costly so I cant go that route anymore.

PS...I'm gonna miss my car it was so good to me. but the good thing is, I sold it to my brother! so its still in the family he's thinking of entering it into hellaflush after picking up a set of cr-kais. I'm gonna give it a go as well as long as I can get my hands on an Altezza in time.

Don't get the Altezza on AUTOLAND, that Altezza been there for awhile still not sold! It's way too pricey.

- FYI: The white Altezza been in AUTOLAND since 2009 because b4 I deployed oversee's (2009) I was looking for a IS300 and I saw that IS300 AD on craiglist.

- Not to be rude and all but Autoland parked that IS300 on the side of the street.

hmmm interesting....im guessing they probably fixed it under the table then.

could you ask your source where the damage is and if its been repaired? If this damage wasnt reported then it technically still has a clear title right? and without any kind of paper trail theres no way of knowing...

sneeeeeaky chinese people.....
