Hey,

Once I have had my car at my local performance car garage tomorrow I will be looking to sell on my R, or maybe swap/part ex?

Basically the scenario is I need the money that the car is costing me every month in petrol/Insurance. I'm still trying to opt for a ''performance' car to replace the R but somethign with a better MPG and lower insurance group. I would consider anything..

Problem with the car is displayed here:

Ever since I fitted my FMIC there has been a lack in power, I'm not necasserily concerned due to the fact the car was driving great before i fitted the FMIC, so there is a problem with a leak somewhere. I haven't got my hands dirty of yet looking for the problem, so I will let my local do it for me who specialise in performance cars. The problem could be ME, however, and I think it's slower, but hey who knows?

Spec is as follows:
67k miles
Red
H reg
Full mongoose exhaust system
Decat
FMIC
G-force coilovers (fitted 3 weeks ago by Hiteq)
Running just under 1 bar)
HKS ssq (1st one) dv
Front strut brace
Uprated clutch (unknown make)
Walbro fuel pump
Hks ssq (1st one)
HKS air filter
17" split rims
Very clean original interior apart from Headunit has swapped positions where oil temp/boost gauge etc is located normally.
Personal steering wheel
Cobra alarm
Remote central locking
Extensive history
Clear repeators
Laguna splitter
"P" badge on grill
Alpine Headunit
JL-Audio components
Alpine amp
JL-Audio 12 inch sub

When i bought the car this had been mentioned on the sale:
Rebuilt gearbox
New brakes - and a few other things carried out by the present owner.
New tyres
Turbo to manifold gasket just replaced, work done to turbo.
New head bolts.

There is a reciept for a gearbox problem last year, and I guess this is when it was rebuilt.

A long list of reciepts and all MOT's since import.

The car drives great, the suspension has adjustable dampening and is not back breaking whatsoever, this can be adjusted! The car did pull great through the gears and I have never had a problem mechanical wise with the car.

Bad points

- The bodywork of the car is OK, there is blemishes of rust on the rear arches, really not to worry about at the moment really.
- The front bumper has alot of stone chips as dones the front of the bonnet, The front bumper needs a bit of tidying up where the mesh was stuck if your a perfectionist, it's all stuck fine but on close inspection it could of been cut out a bit better!
- ABS light is lit up, but I can plug the ABS back in if necassary.

That's it really. Can't think of anything else.

I have owned the car only about 40 days and have spent about £1700 on it for the suspension, getting this fitted, new intercooler and other parts lsited above, the car was pretty standard before coming to me.

I'd like offers on the car, or if you have anything to P/X/swap please get in touch.

Cheers

Here are some pictures, I need to update them, which I will do tomorrow. The later pics of where I was half doing the mesh, so hadn't been fully sprayed!

Would like £3500 for the car. Nothing less I'd be losing major bucks in a short period of time.
