Regularly services every 5K-10000kms.
Rego due Jan.
 
Bad:
-Small oil leak - From HFH. Though no oil is required until every service.
-Idle - While it was tuned, i had to manually install a Idle Control Valve mechanism. I just leave it at the one setting and its fine. When Air con is on it adjusts fine. If you place the stock Gen3 ECU (which is included in sale) in, the Idle Control Valve works as normal and no mechanism required.
 
Its driven with love and is a head turner. It's only used on the weekends (if that) and was garaged the rest of the time. With the eng swap, a form can be submitted to change engine number. I just left it as the eng number location is in a ridiculous location that cannot be read. Price - $12,000 ono.
 
No timewasters, lowballers or tyre kickers... I will do the test driving until you show cash. PM me if your interested. Located in 6027 - Perth.

    Try and make a few posts on this thread to get your count up and pm him - we're on the lookout for spammers from Nigeria with posts about Uber insurance (true story!)
