Exterior :
Paint is in good condition, has a few stone chips on the front.
Most dents (very minor) were removed when I had her detailed last year.
Passenger side handle has a little bit of clear coming off (altho I have a replacement EL type in the exact color)
Also have the Original Boot with the XR8 Spoiler. (bubble wrapped and in the garage) I think its ok!

Interior :
Grey, Pretty clean, I Installed Full Fairmont Ghia Interior Minus Seats. Also converted to Full Climate Control about 4 years ago.
Has Chrome Handles, Timber Trim, Velour door trims and High Spec Interior light from a LTD.
Car has electric Windows and Trip Computer.
Has Passenger Airbag.
Instrument Cluster is a Police Spec, and has had the Eeprom installed from the Original Cluster to retain the correct odometer.
(doing that I lost the police calibration functions, but if you really want those I can provide another police cluster)

Hi series Head unit, 6 Disc Stacker, Sub and Factory Amp.
Coupled with Pioneer TS-C 1625 Splits in the front.

No Wire has been Cut, I'm pretty fussy about wires and I have to have everything working.

Driveline :
The Engine was replaced at 205,000 with a Series 2 AU Engine, I spent a few months tidying up a AU Engine, and Modified the Sump to fit. (Cross-member has NOT been cut and nothing structural has been altered.)
I was going to head down the blown option, and wanted a Strong bottom end, Once I installed this engine I never bothered, I was completely amazed at how smooth the engine is, and rev's very cleanly with no vibrations.
The AU engine had just shy of 100,000k's.

Transmission Is a World-Class T5, (late model with reverse synchronizer)
I put a new bearing kit and sealed the gearbox about 1.5 years ago,
Nothing was wrong with it at the time, I just do preventative maintenance.
There is No drive line noises.

Diff is a 3.23:1 LSD with no noises.
I did try a few 3.45's but opted to stay with a 3.23 as I personally think it suits the T5 better and you can get some amazing legs in second.

Pacemaker 4499's and Redback 2½" Exhaust with rear Muffler, Not the loud droning one.
Factory Alarm.
EF Series 2 XR6 ECU Manual 4TAC

Brakes, Suspension & Wheels:
DBA Slotted Rotors up front with Bendix HD's
RDA Slotted Rear with RDA Pads.
Not a bad combination, But I preferred Ultimate's on the front.

Pedders Low Suspension, with Gas Sports Ryder Shocks.
Camber Kit on Both Sides. (some people only do one side to compensate the road angle)

16" Genuine FTR's including Spare,
Running Toyo Teo Plus 225/50/16" with around 80% Tread.

Lubricants Its only used:
Shell Helix Plus (i think its HX7 now)
Castrol Transmax Z
Penrite Limslip 90
Castrol (silver bottle) Dot 5
Mobil 424? Power Steering





Boot with Rear Wing:




Carefree, we may not be number one, but we're up there.
