    - Interior is good overall, slight marks here and there but nothing to worry about.
    - Oil changed every 3500-4000 miles using Technolube oil, and OEM filter.
    - Body work 7/10:
    Rear N/S corner light trim damaged, as well as bumper cracked. Please see pics. No wing or light damage (still has the same lights). I can include new trim in black.
    Some muppet keyed the car along the driver side basically from one light to the other. 1/2 of the scratch will buff out, but the other half won't, it`s too deep. Tried to show in pictures as good as I could.
    Bad bits (Dude, it's an 18 years old car!):
    - Slight surface rust on both arches (Driver side is worse).
    - Bottom of passenger side arch has a rust spot which requires attention. Repairable. Doesn't need new arches, but up to new owner. Been quoted 250 for both sides to be fixed.
    - Paint job has marks / scuffs here and there, nothing too bad but it's not a show and shine bodywork. (Please see pictures)
    - Driver side front wing was hit by last owner, i was able to pull the thing back to a good condition without repair (No paint damage whatsoever).
    - Driver side wing mirror does not move up and down (from the electronic adjuster). it moves left and right without problem.
    - Driver side rear door lock does not work from the fob. It doesn't lock the door (either wiring or the vacuum unit gone - easy fix, but never bothered me)
    - Paint flake on grill in 3 places (previous owner must of paint a chrome grill)
    - Every so often (intermittent), you can hear the release bearing moaning. A 3.000 miles old clutch included (not fitted) with the car.
    - Rear passenger side window developed what's called a lazy window. It moves up and down as it should, but it's a lot slower then the other 3 windows.
    I owned the car for 3 years. Spent a lot of money and work on it, it was my daily and I loved it, so I maintained it ALWAYS fixing anything mechanical on the spot. I do appreciate it's not perfect, but it is in a lot better nick then some rust buckets and 'C4 swapped EJ9's out there, selling for a lot of moneys, and I've been as honest as once could be when selling a car, never hidden a thing. The car drives and handles immensely for an 18 year old car with such mileage(!!!) and is mechanically SPOT ON (read - NO FAULTS).
    I doubt this description covers everything, but that's all I can remember for now. Feel free to ask you questions. I hope you can see I tried to be as honest as possible, and describe the car as well as I could.
    It's 1st time i'm selling a car, so bear with me if I missed anything - just ask. View of the car is recommended, trust me, pictures don't do it justice.
    I love every bit of this car, but buying a Type-R has left me with no choice but selling this on.
    Any tests are welcome, but you will only test drive the car if I've seen your insurance policy.
    No dreamers, and stupid offers - Please note: I don't mind telling you to piss off.
    Price £1500 OVNO.
    Thank you for taking the time to read this
