The sad day has come to post my R up on this page. I bought my R in Michigan and took pretty good care of it, but since relocating to California I've lost my garage and don't have the time to get it ready for smog test. I really hope this car can stay in the community being the more sought after color combo. I've done alot of the typical R mods (listed below and in my CV), with an upgraded intercooler and tune it should really be a beast. :)

I've had this car about 4 years, 2nd owner, runs pretty solid, aside from a recent boost issue which is probably the TCV, replacing with OEM this weekend along with cleaning and detail. I've kept the car looking mostly stock but put alot into making the car handle better. General maintenance is always up to date, Castrol synthetic oil and premium fuel only. For its mileage its still running strong and sounds beautiful with the IPD exhaust.

I'll take more photos of the car in its current condition this weekend but the best of is below, also I've documented it over the years here: whoalvo.tumblr.com

Services listed below the pics.
Mileage 165k

Disclaimers: Like I said, visual inspection in Cali is problematic, but possible if you have time to replace a few parts, also I owe the bank a few grand on it but I'll have it paid before its sold, just a heads up. The brakes were just done by a local indy, they didn't clean the Brembo's well so they're squeaky.
