Hello chaps

I've been away for a while, but I'm seriously now looking to get another V70R, this time a phase 2. Have noticed that there are quite a few Jap imports knocking about on eBay, with considerably lower miles than UK stock. What I want to know is this................are the common fail items like splined sleeve, split liner, etc, more common to happen on higher mileage cars. Was thinking that if I bought a low mileage Jap import, could I also buy myself a few years of trouble free motoring before all the problems start?

To be honest, the V70R is probably not the most sensible choice for a daily driver, covering 15,000 miles on average a year, but it is an itch that will not go away.

Any pros or cons for the Jap verson?

Cheers Darren
