Default 5EXi For Sale

Well it pains me to do this but i have to, as i'm moving to france in 2008. unfortunately the french are anal w.r.t. kit cars so i will have to sell the car.

however i want to keep the "power unit" as i've spent a boot load of cash on it!

So i'm offering up for sale a rolling chassis :-

Modules 1,2 and 3 assembled. SVA was Jan 2006.
Vented front discs, MG ZR rear callipers (bias valve fitted).
Corbeau blue seats and aftermarket steering wheel.
Modified pedal box c/w hydraulic clutch conversion.
No engine/clutch/box, driveshafts, ECU and gauges.

The three modules are prob 9k now, but i don't expect half of that!

Any questions or offers please PM me.

John

Hi John.

I'm sad to hear this mate.

You have put so much work into the car. Wish you all the best in France.

Sorry to be a leech. But...
When you say the "power unit" your keeping. Does that include the complete modified exhaust from manafold?

Bummer.

If I had not just taken on a basket case, pulled it all the way back to Somerset from London I would likley take your offer up.

I would still like to compare builds as you are so close, sounds like I better be quick if I want to see it.

I wish I had the chance of the car. Finances are stopping me though. Had some hair brain ideas for it!

I think John is now selling this complete with a standard T16 Turbo engine...
So it will be legal, ready to drive, etc...
