Stage 2 remap completed by turner race developments in Stroud
I wouldnt want to guess what the above cost me. Im guessing around £5000
In 2011 I replaced the engine by Turner Race Developments. I have all the bills and receipts for the work done. I chose to completely replace the engine for peace of mind after a few niggly faults with the original one and at the same time had a few of the above replaced...notably the exhaust, clutch etc. Since then it has been faultless!
I have the service history stamped up from when i bought the car with 4 service stamps including brake fluid changes, coolant changes etc. This also comes with a VX200 manual and leather case. The latest service was done on Tuesday 19th March.
It has been garaged since i have had the car and only last month i brought it out of hibernation.
Couple of stone chips front and rear
I have one key
Recorded Cat D in 2007. Front clam damage. I inspected the car fully when having the above work done.
There is a small mark on one of the Carbon ears
Couple of alloys have very small marks on
You would expect alot of the above on a 7 year old car....
I only use the car @ weekends. In the week it is garaged
It was one of the last VX220 Turbos made. I have really looked after this car since i bought it. Only genuine reason i am selling is my dad is selling his Z3M and i dont want to let it leave the family. I would keep both but i dont have the room.
MOT expires in June, it has always sailed through. Tax i will renew this week so it will have 6 months. All the tyres have good tread.
The car is immensly fast. I am a member of the VX220 forum and everyone who has driven it has been amazed at the sound and the acceleration. Shame i didnt have more time to use it in the time i had it.
THERE IS ALSO A HARD TOP FOR THE CAR AVAILABLE FOR £400
Please feel free to ask me any questions. Ive been very honest in my advert as i would hope someone would be with me if i were buying. Im not interested in a part exchange so please dont ask
