I have had a look at this car, its not too bad with 10500 miles on the clock, for quite a few reasons I decided not to buy it, but someone out there might want to give it a go,

I had a look good look underneath, there is very little damage, all the wishbone type bits need replacing,new spring and shock, it needs a back door, rear wing, rear bumper,new wheel, possibly a driveshaft, the diff all looks ok, starts and runs ok.

Ask your self "why" they wrote of a car worth 30k repaired???

because it's damaged. do you think insurance companies bother to repair? pay a lot for labour and provide courtesy car during this time, and have a lot of paper work, and owner may decide he doesnt like it, or is concerned, and many other "and, or"..

I've seen scratched cars and clasified as total loss catC :/ or not damage bad, but written off. sometimes it's shame.


btw. 20k for this one is quite a lot.
if you say it's worth 30k, is it what they pay for it or what somebody asks for it? thats difference. They wont take more than 15 for this one I think.

Done a search on the reg and it comes up FQ 300 in Silver !

Also didn't the FQ400 have the HKS Mushroom filter ?

I'm not too sure this is a 400 IMO :eek:

its probably a 400 but obviously need properly checking .with a cat D on it when repaired this car would only be worth 50% ot the value of a average evo 400 .it looks like the wheel has taken a lot of the impact instead of everything else .to repair this properly might not be too expensive but 20k is far too high to pay .in mint condition it would be worth say 30k ,with a cat D that comes right down to 15k .to ask 20k is just having a big laugh .this car is only worth at most as it is 10k poss 12k at very most .

And the price its at the mo is slightly inflated due to fact it being recorded!!For few more grand you could get a straight fq400!!!

NO WE DO NOT SELL BENT CARS . where did i say that ?

ALL our cars come to us DIRECT from japan

I need parts sometimes - mainly cosmetic parts because if they are mechanical we buy them new :) . This is why i sometimes have to visit simson brothers and i allways have a passing look , and then make my judgement on their prices .

Thanks Barrie
