    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
