- Winter tires on steelies, i have 3 wheel covers too.

- H&R iX lowering springs
- Shocks are all Bilstein, put in about 8months ago, with the exception of left front, which is a Koni (long story). 2 replacement Bilstein HD shocks will be included with the car. The Koni is almost shot.
- Stock sway bars
- Powerflex front CAB's (Urethane)

- All of the above. Many people can vouch for this car. I really did put a lot of work into it.
- Engine does not burn oil.
- Working A/C!
- Turbo? Dont have to say much more about that...
- Good management, well tuned.
- Front fenders were replaced, they're solid.

- As befits a Canadian car, the shell really isnt in the best shape. All 4 floor sections need work, one rather severely. Rust was fixed on the bottom of all 4 doors, but its starting to show a bit again. There are a few bubbles above the license plate lights. No rust on the sunroof though, what a shocker.
- Rear upper spring perches gave out on me a few months ago, i ground out all the rust and welded giant plates in - it will NEVER break there again. Had the added benefit of giving the car a bit of rake.

This was done on both sides to make sure it didnt happen again!
- There is an oil leak somewhere very high up on the engine - probably valve cover gasket, or front cam seal.
- Boost is creeping from 10-15psi near redline. I took apart the wastegate because i thought it was stuck, perhaps the seal was slightly damaged when i put it back. Its never crept before. Likely a new actuator seal will fix this.

Extra Parts: - Please note they are not included in the price, but are negotiable to be included.
- 3.91 front diff $50
- 4.10 diff set $150
- Manual t-case (pretty sure the VC is still good) $200
- PBR Ultimate brake pads (brand new still in wrapping)
- 2 replacement outer CV boots
- Conti timing belt kit and Graf waterpump
- Conti V-belts
- Complete shifter rebuild kit with Z3 1.9 lever and new OEM selector rod
- Mahle and Mann oil filters
- Set of NGK BPR7ES spark plugs
- All intake manifold gaskets
- Victor Reinz headgasket and valve cover gasket
- Rear main seal (springless, new design)
- Random other gaskets and seals
- ^^ all of that for $400
- Other stuff i'm sure i'm forgetting, extra brake calipers, master cylinder, bulbs/fuses/switches, etc etc

Extra Turbo/Performance parts - Please note they are not included in the price, but are negotiable to be included.
- New OEM double valve springs
- New set of Febi rockers (no eccentrics)
- PPF Z45 replica (ground by IE) turbo cam (used by the swedes in all of their high HP builds) - 280* duration, 108* lobe separation, 11.2mm lift
- ^^ all for $500


I'm asking $5500 for the car. AS IS. The driveline is solid, but i just dont have the time and money to put into it anymore. To safety it you'll have to fix the floor, but i dont think there'll be anything else. It wont pass an e-test, not without a cat.
