Why is it on an "H" registration? Someone ****ed up when registering it?

Facelift rear lights and Integra wheels, the recaros are also looking pretty worn, its hardly showroom condition

Why does it have the USDM headlights? Was it in a LHD country before the UK?

and new "JDM" headlights from the US? they're USDM headlights?

This car sounds too dodgy, Your views on this?

Location is Birmingham btw lol

Does look clean but as you said not showroom condition. Wouldn't say it's 'dodgy' just an over enthusiastic owner. Body looks very clean on it, think they've put the arch liners on it?? And I'm sure the 'new JDM headlights' came straight from the eBay advert title.

Overall I reckon It's worth a punt for someone looking for a VSM model.

And I highly doubt it was LHD at any point, just replacement lights from eBay to probably replace old yellow murky ones which were on it previously.

I don't trust it. I wouldn't buy anything that is advertised as immaculate when it clearly isn't. Just sounds like a desperate attempt to shift it.

X2 on that,

I hate words like immaculate and mint being used in adverts,
A good discriptive over view of individual areas of the car is much more usefull than some ones exaggerated view of their own car, and would make me much more likely to go and view a car

You can always tell if it's LHD from the factory by the firewall.

If you look around the mc you'll see the firewall almost hugs the mc - one way to tell. Its always amusing when people claim they have LHD Ek9s and the firewall says otherwise. :nice:

Looks like a good example.most if not all ek9s have been messed with at some point in their life.not badly priced.

The whole "showroom" thing is bs, I wouldn't pay any extra for it. It does look like a good clean example but I have seen cleaner builds. Also putting those lights on the EK9 is like sticking EJ9 lights on an EK9 and passing them off as an upgrade, the rear's probably don't have the double bulb fitments also. £4500-5k and it would be decent for the price.

showroom condition @ 100k miles. Riiiight :blabla:

and this...

Bad points:
· The windscreen has a very thin crack to an area less than 40mm circle. (on the passenger side).
· There’s a very tiny surface paint bubble mark starting to show on the rear right hand side arch (the size less than a 5p coin),really hard to notice.
