The time has come to move on to a new project.

This means I need to sell my current Type R - One of the most modded Type R Scoobs around.

Not to everyones taste and if you do not have anything constructive to say then DONT BOTHER. :mad:

The car does need to be mapped and this will be done later this month when it will also be MOT'd again and supplied with 6 months tax.

nice car but i think you could have worded your ad better and not been so aggressive and a price always helps as i know someone who is looking for a nice 2 door scooby ;)
I would let it go for 14k. I do need to shift it.

Ok so maybe i was a bit aggressive but on SN there are sooo many dorks who just make stupid comments :D

Anyway, Kirbz, dont you remember me? Its me ZEDSTER from the 300 Forum.

If your mate is interested let me know. I am sure he would be the sort to look after his cars. We could come to an agreement :)

Didnt mean be so arsy, just have no time for dreamers :)

Cheers Dude

Its a 99 car mate. One owner in Japan. I imported it through TSL motorsport two years ago.

I am the only UK owner. It came over totally stock (no spoiler!) and I had ALL the work done by TSL.

I have spent almost 30K on the car. Its in VERY good condition

Yes i dealt with Graham (TSL) five years ago, decated and chipped up one of my Scooby's.. made a good job of it.. they seem to know what they're doing...TSL = Trent Saab Limited..Wonder if they changed it now to Trent Subaru :)

Why would you want to shift a 380bhp scooby. It would give a 550bhp skyline a good run for its money

Its certainly does and it has done time and time again. I just cant justify keeping it anymore.

I have other commitments and another car.... its a shame but it needs to go.

I just hope it goes to a good home :)
