    May well be just a coincidence and the seller is a bit lazy, but it doesn't fill you with confidence.

    FFS this guy is worse than me at selling a car - although my advert skills have improved recently by copying the format of a decent advert from this forum...he should try it

    Would just like to say to people wondering about this car, I was the one that 1st built that car from scratch, and sold it about 3 years ago, there's nothing untrue or untoward about this car when I owned it and was defiantly running good power......I sold this car for 850, and the only mod that has been changed on it was the semi slicks by a new owner, mitchyboy will confirm this was mine and was totally standard when I bought it!
    This was my third Panama yellow t4 and the fastest yet! Have videos

    The brakes are mivec fto, twin pots, with evo 3 discs, standard rears. Turbo actuator was a 1.5bar kinugawa to hold boost at 22psi better, has custom decat and power flow exhaust that I welded up. Did have custom fmic but I took that off as was too rare to sell with car, has bsr induction kit, with cold air feed that comes from removed fog light through wing and is excellent at keeping that filter cold and providing cold air, has fk coilovers all round. The engine had uprated shells and bigends, standard forged crank and pistons, and 440cc injectors, uprated boost hoses for the standard bcv. This was a pretty fast car and i battered few cars round track and other places, evo 6 352hp from 2nd gear roll, e46 m3 up to according to driver 170+ I was off clock and still pulling, rs4 rolling stayed with couldn't pull on me, track ready Clio 172 running 197 and weighing 904kg......list is too long, how it's running now I can't tell you but that was it when I had it.
    Imo absolute steal at that price, and I'm going to buy it back if no one else does, super rare can only be 5 or 6 of these left and I had 3.....
