Such a fantastic car!

I bought it with 97,000 genuine Kms on the clock and it was only $11K!
The paint is original too

Here's an ADM GroupA. It's a bit over priced in my opinion as there are no functional mechanical differences between a Group A and a non-GroupA.
This particular car has nearly double the Kms of mine and is double the price. Maybe I got a crazy bargain?
Price is however generated by demand, so I hope that the seller gets what he is asking

In case you are wondering, other than some trim differences (leather seats, airbag etc) mechanical differences between GroupA and non-GroupA are -
  1. Group A has a water spray bar which isn't functional. Tests have proven that a spray bar on a W2A system makes stuff all difference to inlet temperatures
  2. Group A has anti-lag pipes on the exhaust manifold, though they are blocked off
  3. Group A has a water injector in the inlet manifold though it isn't functional
  4. Group A has ABS though some non-Group A cars do have it. I believe that it was an option

BTW I imported a set of stock wheels from Canada because I couldn't get any locally. I paid way too much for them though I'm still happy that I have them. When my current tyres are close to wearing out, I'll get the stock wheels restored and throw a new set of Federal 595RSRs on them.

I just ordered a set of Tein lowering springs. My idea is to use them with the stock wheels I bought a while ago to make the car look tough. I haven't trial fitted the wheels yet though I expect that I'll need spacers to get the wheels to fill the guards properly. I can't wait to see how it looks

I trial fitted a wheel with a 20mm spacer and it looks good. It will look perfect once I put the lowering springs in and have the wheels painted

I washed the car yesterday so I thought I'd take some close ups with the phone before she got dusty again

I fitted the new Tein springs yesterday. Slammed!

BTW the front Tein springs are too low. The rears are OK. Just some feedback in case someone else is thinking of buying the same springs

I painted my door handles so that they are no longer faded. So pretty!
I used spray cans. 3 coats of red and 2 coats of clear.

I ran the GT4 on the dyno at PVS in Northmead on Thursday night.
It made 154kW at the wheels. I'm happy with that.
The only performance mods are a full exhaust, Blitz ECU and Blitz boost controller.

What company or sites did you import the car from?
2016/07/17 20:36:31
Bud
I bought it from a local guy. He bought it from the guy that brought it in from Japan as a personal import.

I've entered this car into Toyotafest, which is a car show held at Castle Hill Toyota in Sydney on the 2nd of October 2016. There will be lots of great Toyotas there. Come along and have a look.
