Yes indeed.  Here is some stuff he has writen about the mods done.  Quite interesting.  Apparently spent 8k just on the Motec chip upgrade and laptop - not including labour or ecu plates.

So I've been approached by another OZaudi member with his brothers car.  It has been in storage for 4 years with regular servicing.  Has 169kms.  Great condition.  Suspension is a bit dead feeling so would need that sorting.. but asking 12ono.. which could become 10 with haggling

I guess the question is.  The first car would be mint - no expense spared.  This car would be great - but has cheap newish tyres on it - because of storage - and needs suspension components .. and possibly an upgrade chip as I hear they do need them.
So I guess I would spend extra coin on this car.. whereas for 20k there is a superb example with 300bhp - reliably - and a meticulous owner with lower kms... hard call - hard call. what's the better deal?

Kind of in the wrong section isn't this? :P

Go the first one though!

I think either woul be ok. Good to have options, even at 10k, and then upgradign turbos, and suspension the hotted up one seems a good deal. Interesting that no Aussies were interested in purchasing RS2 from NZ, I wonder if their import regs kills this off, as based on that sale it would defiently stack up to do so. Good luck!

He ended up using my interest to spark the sale on a long term interested party.  That guy bought the car straight away.  The cheaper S4 is too far away as I'm in Vic and it is in upper NSW.  Still looking, but have my eyes set on a M3 evo E36 at the mo to look at in the new year.

Dont get an E36 Evo, to much stuff to go wrong, VANOS, weaker 6 speed box and they never put out the 321BHP they are meant to have. If you want an E36 M3 go for the 3.0 with the 5 speed box (stronger) and often put out more than the 286BHP BMW claim. Only up side to an E36 Evo is the alloy doors.
