The car was imported from Japan in 2007, has two previous keepers, the first being the importers the second a lady and until fairly recently the car has been in long term storage for over 5 years.
The car is unmodified other than a Prodrive backbox which gives a nice tone..not loud and tubular manifolds which help low down drivability. Interior is stock and in great condition, even still has the factory mats, seats are in great condition and bolsters all good. Basic Cd head unit, Rear load cover present. Factory spare and toolkit.
Money has been spent recommisioning the car, it has been serviced fully, timing belt changed, water pump, all fluids ect..I have owned the car since April and serviced it twice. Wheels were recently refurbished and new tyres allround, brakes have also been replaced. Had a new catalytic converter and genuine O2 sensor fitted for MOT as failed first time on emissions, all good now. Gear linkage has been refurbished. Bodywork is in great condition for age, no rust bubbles or big scrapes. Great underneath and inside boot ect..need some bits of detailing to be A1 reflected in price.
