You have pics of the car? Would like to see engine bay to confirm some of the mods and how well the car has been maintained. Also, before buying, ask for compression test, oil, etc.
If you are wanting a daily driver.Seller says he is selling because he is a European mechanic and wants a European car? Says all OEM parts can be included, everything down to the nuts and bolts too. Is this an ok buy?
Big head! 😆😆😆In what would have been post #2 in this thread, I was going to state my preference for stock cars, as well.
But I do remember being young(er), when my shorts would get all in an uproar over some modded hot rod, and how trying to convince me otherwise was often a futile pursuit.
So to the OP, if you're not gonna go stock, take the advice of those who suggested a thorough checking out of the car in question.
Use extreme caution, and try to make decisions with the big head.
Was it a significant problem after the 2012 MY?1st thing I would do,is get a compression check.
Why? Well because it's a k24z7 and some of these were infamous for oil consumption.
Add on top of that Achilles heel and all the mods and probably beat like a w.ho.r.e,then it's probably safe to say you should get a compression check. Otherwise you're going to end up with a car with lots of mods and a toasted motor. Some of us were lucky and got solid motors some had the famous valvetrain failures ,others were eating oil like a buffet.
