Are Altezzas a name brand? Or is it the cleared out lights that look like the IS300 (Altezza in JDM)? Or something else?

The fad is over. You should be able to get
a used one for cheap. If mine isn't cracked,
i'd give it away for free.

does anyone know the correct way to pronounce this word "altezza"?

rice boys are confusing me w/ how it is pronounced.

does the E sound like that of the E in inTEGra? or
does the E sound like that of the double EE in chEEse?


i thought it was the first case, but rice boys showed me up when a gang of them at school were like alteeza! alteeza!

Two Zs? Not always. Usually two Zs is an Italian expression, but Altezza isn't an Italian word AFAIK.

Besides, Ahl-tay-tsa? What kinda idiotic name for a car is that? It's like Integra, Camaro or er... haha forget I said anything

It's what the Japs call the IS 300/200 model of Lexus.
Also, they aren't called Lexus in Japan, just Toyota
