    Is this car worth 7500.... I know it's had a sh@t load of work done on it.... But that's a lot of money for a 13 year old car....

    408bhp @1.65 bar. It wants a fuel pump and custom map and it'll reach 450 bhp.
    I sold it for 5k in July.

    Oh and it hits the rev limiter in 6th at about 170ish, definitely not 190mph lol

    It's mine, the top speed was a figure I thought Ben told me but I obviously wasn't listening properly. Haha

    The way people buy cars nowadays if I advertise it for 5 I will be getting offers for 3. I don't really want to sell it but I'm pretty hard up and it's a shame that it just sits there and rarely gets taken out
