    Well not sure if the time has come or not, but every year my summers get busier and I literally have
    no time to play and drive this car.

    [​IMG]

    Chasis: EP91
    Engine: 1.3L 4 cylinder turbocharged (4E-FTE) *top mount intercooler*
    Drivetrain: FWD+limited slip (5speed manual)
    Weight: under 2000lbs
    Power: current 170-180hp(
    Mileage: 127,000kms

    This car is very unique and rare, this model especially comes with a factory LSD (limited slip differential) front strut bar, and rear cross brace. A limited amount of Glanza V starlets were produced with these modifications. It also came with a Recaro Interior, but the owner sold that separately since they are highly sought after in the community...so I switched out the stock starlet interior it came with hah.

    I purchased this car completely stock from Japan, it had a turbo timer and that was it. The timing belt was done 10,000kms ago.

    Since I have owned it I have added the following new parts:

    - front drilled and slotted rotors
    - rear drilled and slotted rotors
    - ebc racing pads
    - braided brake lines front and rear
    - rear wheel bearings (have to be done when replacing rotors)
    - BC racing coilovers (camber adjustable + 32 way adjustable dampening)
    - 15x8 Rays light weight wheels
    - 195/55/15 Dunlop direzza dz102
    - complete custom exhaust turboback (2.5 inch stainless)
    - decat downpipe
    - custom air intake
    - triple core aluminium radiator+colder thermo
    - electric slim fan
    - aftermarket ECU increased fuelling, boost restriction removed, safely mapped up to 1.2 bar, speed limiter removed, 8200rpm redline. (ECU is good for 250hp)
    - rear interior and rear seats removed (have all original parts)
    - front seats removed, replaced with RX-8 bucket seats (custom mounts)
    - fresh oil change, fresh coolant, fresh brake, fresh power steering.
    - valve cover gasket replaced
    - has A/C!
    -brand new water pump
    -new battery

    I may be forgetting some stuff but I believe that is most of it, engine doesn't burn any oil, doesn't leak any type of fluid.

    Now I don't want to sell this car, purpose at first was to track the car, and then I started to love it far to much. This little beast has yet to see the track, its seen some summer driving, and its surprised plenty of fellow car enthusiasts on the road.

    Many of the parts added to the car were hard to get, the starlet does share many parts with the paseo and tercel models here in North America though. The parts hard to get were those of the aftermarket brands etc...shipping on heavy stuff like this from Japan and the UK was very pricey!!!

    The only bad with the car is the roof and hood have paint fad and clear coat fad from the sun exposure in Japan (pretty much every single one I looked at had this to an extent). Other then that, the rest of the paint and body are in good shape. There is no rust anywhere on the body.

    Go Kart describes this vehicle well, the power delivery is awesome, boost is instant.

    In the last year or so I dumped money into this car, as a project and because its my passion. I have owned multiple cars at one time throughout my life, and this is the first time I can safely say Im not honoring how fun and capable this car is by letting it sit in a garage.

    As for price, Im looking around $10,000 obo. I am into the car for close to $13,500 ish. I have receipts for the big part purchases from UK and Japan, and everything else.

    It's likely time of year and the fact no one knows what the heck it is haha

    But my fault as well for dumping money into the little bastard.

    Oh well, I will endure!! Haha

    I've been rocking it lately, it would need snow tires if this winter got serious but other then that it's a blast. The suspension is setup pretty aggressive right now, makes it a challenge at times because our roads in Vancouver are so grooved from all the traffic

    I got very little for my bone-stock manual EP82. Much regret for selling it.

    This thing looks like a blast. I seen one for sale in Alberta a couple years ago with an aftermarket ecu and I was surprised by how long it was posted.
    If my wrx sells first I might have to make a stop over in BC to pick this up.
    Good luck with your sale!

    Will consider trades, a motorcycle that is.

    600 cbr
    750 gsxr
    or any 1000cc Superbike

    I would find more time riding and racing my bike then the car.

    Started up and took her for a drive, better weather is coming and so is track season.

    Still for sale, will take trades if you got a sport bike you want to get rid of.

    I was driving home from work yesterday and thinking about how I'm likely going to have to commute from Abbotsford to Vancouver by the Fall and I was wondering if you still had this. I'm not a buyer at the moment, but if I move and you still have it I might come a knockin'! :)
