TBH mine is purely out of interest. I know what's happened to mine. It's sat on 4 axle stands stripped back so I can see for myself. It's had some fun in its life but it's totally solid, no welding and BIMTA certified and zero rust. To me that's the important part.

I did have the "dealer network" story so it would be interesting to see if it went through auction. Sure it did.

Yes mine was an auction car, came through Torque GT.

Have the auction sheet and found a link to it online

But doesn't show the auction pic when I put in the chassis number

I bet there will be loads who 'just don't think it's worth it' as they 'know' their trader and 'trust' them implicitly. ..

In other words prefer to carry on in fantasy land

Found mine. No picture which is what I was expecting but under grade it says G S R and Japanese writing then a 6 at the end?

Oh and mine was imported 11 years ago in 2005! So it goes back quite far!

Thats a strange one then, if it found mine i thought it would have shown yours Andy. I hope you get all the auction photos and auction sheet when you get the full report through, fingers crossed

Ignorance is bliss. Issue is now that we have this link people are going to be using it when you come to sell. You might be better forewarned?

I am alittle confused here - have you got your full report back already? Does it have an auction diagram with it?

No picture on mine, but I have the auction photos and sheet as well as bimta but might pay for the report sometime out of curiosity.

Cheers for continuing to help people out Rich

Just typed mine in and looking at my v5 it was imported in march 1998, not 1997 like I thought Dohhhh!

Anyhow it came back but with no pic and said it was auction grade 4 , so it goes back a fair while.

On yours it says GSR TOMMI MAKINEN under grade, mine says GSR and some Japanese writing and a 6. No full report. I am guessing the Japanese writing is tommi makinen?

Ahh, i wasnt aware that the grade section section had anything to do with auctions and was more like a grade of lancer i.e. RS, GSR, Tommi Makinen etc.

Duncan - i believe your reading the 4 as being Grade 4, when it actually means Evolution 4


Looking onto where their information comes from;

Quote:
Information provided in a CAR VX Vehicle History Report comes from various data sources. These include: Japan`s Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism (MLIT), car manufacturers, used car auctions, salvage car auctions, insurance companies, auto dealers, inspection sites and several state agencies.

You may or may not get auction grade. We'll know in the next few days

Hi Rich, yes read it wrong. it says grade : GSR (some Japanese writing) then a number 4 on the end. So that tallies up with one poster above who had a 6 at the end of the Japanese writing and had a evo 6.
