    Thanks for the info Scooter ! I am glad this is proper facelift

    As far as i researched, the non VVTi engines are easier to mod and cheaper as well, the VVTi does not introduce many benefits so i am happy what i have


    In the meantime, guys working on the beast and recently received a video how they installed the fog light + replaced the engine oil

    What i like with this seller, that they document all, even such a simple task like oil change.

    If I was you I'd get in contact with Littlenum (James Hart) at Performance@Hart, and have a chat with him about an under body restoration/tidy up, and some fresh protection underneath the car mate.

    Thanks for the advice !

    This will be next stage of the car preparation for me.
    The Seller will do full clean up underneath then put two layers: rust protection + stone chip protection, on the body will be ceramic protection too. That's included in the price anyway. He said that the care will be released to my hands - like new

    It's your car, and by all means do as you wish But my advice is don't do that. To do a proper job you have to remove everything, you wouldn't believe some of the nasties you find and come to light when you dig deeper on these cars now due to age.

    I've seen a few cars now go in for restoration that have previously had a layer of stone chip/underseal plastered on, and it all has to come off, always revealing what's hidden and sealed in underneath, and the cost to clean all the previous stuff off.

    As I said my advice is to get a full proper job done be someone who has experience at doing it, that's if you intend to keep the car for a long time, as it's a big investment, but well worth it in the long run

    Agree with Burna and pointless doing it any other way, and for the future if you come to sell
    it i'd want it documented whats been done with before during and after photos etc

    I've walked away from cars because there's no proof its been done correctly

    Burna - really appreciate your advice ! Noted !
    I am sure this chap knows what he is doing as he runs this business for 25 years already and i have been there, seen like cars are taken apart to do proper cleanup. He must do the job properly, on his one place (he has like half a milion worth cars there) this does not come from improperly done work (I hope LOL )

    At the moment i just can't wait to put my hands on this beast !

    By the way, do you have any recommendations regarding securing the car ? I will keep it behind a gate, but GPS tracker will be there for sure anyway. Do you have any experience ? which one to choose ? I know this will make a massive impact on insurance costs too.

    Unless it is done like this - http://www.mkivsupra.net/vbb/showthr...ec-Restoration then he is wasting your time and his money. Make sure you get photos of the work he is doing because if he is like most of the importers the car will get a cursory covering of black to make it all look nice whilst trapping debris, rust and water close to the bodywork.

    It's a fresh import that looks to have minimal rust underneath, I think it would look good after a nice jet wash/clean up.

    I too might be tempted to not do the coatings (especially if he'll knock something off the price?) straight away. The winter salt has gone (down south at least) and you could look to get it done in the summer when it's bone dry?

    But overall it looks good to me, sticker on the cam cover should be the cambelt, so can check that.

    VVTi is meant to give a bit more low down, but I would say the potential throttle problems out weigh that for me and so I'd be happy with the pre vvti you have.

    Re security I often remove a EFI fuse if I'm away, but don't worry (perhaps I should!) too much about it otherwise, I also only have lowly auto's that no one wants!!!

    If I had a 6 speed these days I would paranoid about where I took it for work, as much as the risk of it being taken.
    Number 8 ...........doing my best to keep
    Number 9 ........been and gone!
    Number 10 ........on its way

    Now you scared me ! I will be kipping my gem behind a solid gate, so hopefully will get good deal on insurance, and, not many people will find out it's there...

    Not so far from you is Bedford Aerodrome. It's a huge track that will really allow you to test not only the straight line power of the car but also the brakes and cornering. It's a great track that's really well suited to a GT car. Let a pro driver drive your car, you will be amazed what it can do. I've been there a dozen times with various conditions and it always confirms I'm the weakest link in the car It's got very safe run off and not a lot to hit so is a great track to actually learn how to drive fast and to do it safely. No noisy exhausts though... I always had to stick a bung in my one.

    Agreed Scooter, my bad Also agreed that the non-VVTi package might be an advantage (Less complex) and it could still come with the V160 & large case diff (and associated drivetrain), some facelift models still had the older stronger components, some not. The VIN plate will confirm this.
