    Selling a car like this you have to put up at least one engine bay pic.
    Got a shot of the exhaust setup from underneath by any chance?

    I'm tempted to post this in the "Cars for Sale worth mentioning" thread but it feels redundant
    This is my sig. There are many like it, but this one is mine. My sig is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. My sig, without me, is useless. Without my sig, I am useless.

    Yeah, everything works fine. Only thing that doesn't is the cruise control because I can't be bothered programming something to do it.

    Also this forum puts most of my pics upside down. I'll have to try and snap some new ones and see if it improves.

    Not really. Do you still have the PPF or how did you go about removing it? What's your diff, LSD? Could make a difference.

    My FD loves a bit of tramp. Probably just an issue with putting actual torque through it that it was never designed for lol

    Mine has no PPF and uses the Racefab PPF delete kit, not sure if this makes a difference or not though.

    I need this gone ASAP. Not sure why the lack of interest as it is a great well built car.

    Would buy in a heartbeat. Need to sort some shit out before I can commit

    Have a guy in Perth trying to sell a very decent LS1 swapped FC RX7 for half this price, but not engineered, but he was saying he's had very little interest too. Weird.
