    Why spoil such a car??. Look at the milage, grade and hardly a mark on the auction sheet, believe me, this’ll be mint body wise, Shame about the inside and the seats have gone too, that’s what would stop me buying it because I know how hard they are to find in mint condition, the rest can be removed

    The wee blue trims and the clock surrounds are missing too.

    TBH I dont think its that bad, assuming the stickers can all be removed.

    For sure @LewisScoob , it depends what a person is looking for I guess?? Someone may love it as it stands, but for me with that grade, milage etc I’d have loved it to be OE, I’m sure it would have been mid 20s then landed here

    Nice if remove the sticker book collection.
    But to fiddled with to go back to an oem
    Beaut, roll cage means half dozen holes down each side.
    Roof scoop will be stuck on so most likely roof repainted .

    But could be a nice weekend toy tho.
    Ditch decals , scoop , wheel change .
    Loose the dust bin hanging on the rear .
    Stickers could be covering marks , and no idea how the Japanese humidity will be on the paint with decals. Cheap vinyl the glue eats into paint. Seats are better lol

    I think Blue trim could’ve been replaced with the optional “carbon” kit. It’s definately got the optional carbon handbrake.

    They look like the prodrive sparco seats as well which sell for a small fortune

    My Son bought a wagon covered in stickers, it took us many weekends gently removing them with a heat gun and a couple of nectar cards. We cut it back with a polisher and there was a tidy car underneath the tat but... Under certain light like the flourescent tubes in my garage you could see the outlines where the stickers were, im guessing the adhesive leaches into the paint after time.
    I quite like the tacky jdm "fast & furiousness" of the car tbh, not sure I could live with that interior though.

    Sad that the stickers are not even the correct ones, i.e. period correct. Pins for bonnet and boot might also require some effort to get rid off.

    I'm wondering why it appears to have UK plates. S5CRT? S5CRY?
