After 5 years of ownership and owning from new, I am considering selling my pride and joy. Ive had my ups and downs with this car, but in its current form, its been the best its EVER been. Not a single penny has been sparred on this car. Just ask the likes of Mat @ MG Autos / Gary @ APT / Ross @ Ross Sport.
The car in its standard form was an Evo IX FQ360 MR By HKS in Gunmetal Grey, however, over the years has been heavily modified.
The spec list is massive, so i am likely to add to this as time passes.

This engine has currently around 5000 miles on it. The first 2000 of which were the running in miles. The total mileage of the car is just a shade under 35,000 miles, but will likely increase as i am using it every other day. The engine starts up first time, idles at 1000rpm and runs perfectly. Ive been through a few engines, and as has been said, this is one solid engine. It never missed a beat pull after pull on the Dyno and still drives home immaculately.
In its current state the car makes anything between 500BHP to 700BHP depending on boost, which is adjustable via a Motec Rotary Switch.
The car has been mapped by Dave Rowe. The car has seen a few turbo / housing combinations, but in the end we decided on a 35GTX with the 0.82 Tial Housing.

5 Speed Medium RS Box Top Speed of around 160MPH

By far the best modification i have done. This suspension inspires so much confident to the point you can get ****y pushing it into a corner. Coupled with the RS Diff and the below Wheel/Tyre setup, your almost untouchable (if you know how to drive).
Nitron 3-Way Adjustable Suspension
Perrin Adjustable Rear Anti-Roll Bar
Again this brake setup inspires confidence. The brake pads are spot on for road use too. Little dust, no squeal and work excellent from cold.

Professional Install done by Platinum-In Car in Coventry. Again went through a few setups, and this one is by far the best sounding and aesthetically pleasing.

The bodywork is in excellent condition. Currently a few minor scratches here and there, however, the car is booked in for a detail and all these minor blemishes will be resolved.
If i get my asking price i am willing to throw in the following:
Carbotech XP10 Brake Pads Still 50% life left in them
Spare RS Gearbox with 4.11 Final Drive
0.63 Tial Housing
NGK Heat Range 9 Race Plugs
Racelogic GPS Performance Box
As has been said, the car needs nothing done to it. It has a long MOT and Tax. The car is religiously serviced between 2000-3000 miles without fail, only using OEM filters and Motul Oil. The last change also saw all the diff oil changed and gearbox oil.
All receipts, documentation is available on request.
Pictures shall be added shortly, once the detail is complete.
Any viewing welcome, i am based just outside of Coventry, however all viewing will be done at a colleagues garage.
You'd be hard pushed to find a more complete car than this one. It has everything, comfort, nice sound system, excellent road manners, handling, braking, decent economy (dedicated fuel economy map) and the best bit - TOTAL BRUTALITY.
Test drives will be carried out by myself ONLY.
