Hello all
My boss has just sold me his Altezza Gita As 300 L AWD Ciabola gold metallic 184,000 km.
It is a beautiful car and I love it.
The car runs well and only has a few scuffs and dings which I'll fix once I have the mechanics sorted.The only problem is the engine light which diagnostics has as emissions exceed Japanese limits,it went through UK Mot test no problem with only points being light wear on lower bushes and brake pads will need replacing
My plan is to get it back to good condition and then do driving tours in Europe,Bavaria and French Alps first on the list.
Sadly he has not serviced it much so am changing all oils,belts ,plugs and leads.
My question is that the Gita has 219 bhp and the Is has 213 bhp.
Are all the parts for the two interchangeable or specific ?
I look forward to any info you can provide.
I will be posting pictures as I move on.

I'm sure that you don't care about all parts. If you want to check a particular part, compare the part number with the same year IS300. Otherwise, call Toyota and find someone who can talk in general.

When I found out the plugs were different, I just wondered what else.Megazip has all the Japanese part numbers but they don't correspond. Also intrigued to where the 6 bhp difference comes from
