My New ST205 WRC
I finally decided to buy an ST205 - there you are, I said it now ...
After the demise of K1ANO and the interim ST165, I decided to bite the bullet. I went for an ST205 WRC in black. I had done a fair amount of research and decided on an import mainly due to the low mileage and condition of the vehicles - and the prospect of some nice modifications.
I saw a vehicle for sale at Japanese Vehicle Sourcing which had been advertised on the GT4OC forum - with a certain degree of argument as to whether the car had the right 'look'. Originally it came with a full set of carbon light pods which certainly made the car stand out ! I have subsequently removed them for the time being ...
I sold my ST165 to a guy called Marvin after I advertised it on findit whic, incidentally, is where I saw it advertised. I handed over the car to Marvin the night before picking up my new one - good timing. I was sad to see the ST165 go as I had enjoyed owning it, but I was looking forward to the ST205 WRC ;-)
I flew up to Edinburgh on the 22nd November 2003 after having paid
a deposit. I met up with Paul Bartolo, Scott and Gordon who came along
to check the car out with me. The car was in mint condition, nice and
clean, full history and drove brilliantly and fast. Davy P met up with
us for lunch and we took some pictures at the Forth road bridge in Queensferry.
I may write more about the day but, so far as to say, I bought the car
and had a fun drive home ;-)
The condition of the car is amazing. The under body condition is mint - all nuts and bolts are pristine with no thread corrosion. I was pleasantly surprised to find an HKS FCON V ECU underneath the carpet when I got the car back home - this may explain why the car goes so fast ;-)
The car came with full, but unreadable, service history and many receipts for the parts fitted which included ...

The following are some of the pics I had to make my mind up before putting a deposit on the car.
