Hi from Christchurch, New Zealand,
I recently bought a Dec 1999, 166, ex-Japan. It is immaculate still, and has 100,000 km on the clock. There is also a service manual, with heaps of japanese writing in it, so I know lots of servicing has been done, but I cannot read it.
The owners manual is also completely in Japanese, so that is no help. By twiddling the ICS controls, I have managed to make it show things in English, although the NAV bit still shows Japanese Characters.
I did manage to select GMT as the time zone, and disabled the am/pm bit, so (by accident) I have made it show local NZ time (we are exactly 12 hours astray from GMT).
Only immediate problem is how to tune in the AM stations (the FM autotuned, but this option goes off for AM) ??? The FM frequency range is also limited to 89.9 max, whereas in NZ FM stations broadcast at up to 107. (Is there a clever settings fix built into the ICS to cater for this ???
Any helpfull information, gratefully received.
