    I fitted a new front splitter last week so the car is looking more standard again.
    Paintwork is in generally good condition for its age, down the near side if you get right up close to the car it's had a slight overspray from somewhere in the past, this would come out with a good Clay bar and polish I think.
    The door handles are going a bit pink as they do...
    The headlights are slightly hazed, i gave them a rub back and polish last year and they came up quite well really.
    Two minor car park marks that you can see if you get up close and look down the line of the car.
    Wheels are in fairly good condition, they had some marks on them when I got the car and the next thing on the list was to get them refurbed - was quoted £180 for the set locally but I've not done them.
    A/C doesn't work, I only tried it last week out of interest as I never tend to us it in any of my cars, I've just deleted it off my Subaru. Could just need gas but couldn't say for sure.

    As you can see there has been no expense spared since I bought the car and it had been my plan to keep it tucked up as an investment. However my itch to modify it and take it on track has become too much so i bought another (much cheaper) 182 for that purpose. On top of the Subaru that I just imported as my daily driver and other expenses I could really do with freeing up the cash that's in it.

    I'm looking for £7950 ovno which I don't believe to be unreasonable considering prices I've seen recently. Ultimately not in a desperate rush to sell so I can wait for the right buyer. Any Questions just PM me. I'll be getting other adverts together but this is the first place I'm advertising. Thanks for looking!

    Please see below most up to date pictures, interior pics to follow up as soon as I get round to giving it a quick clean inside, however inside is immaculate with exception of the steering wheel which is showing signs of age.

    Very quiet on the car sale front! Anyone got any idea if something putting people off? Is it too expensive? There have been a few on the market the last few weeks and I would say mine was particularly mid-range in terms or mileage, condition and price. Any ideas??
