    Bought for 7000$. The car must be restored. Then I do a swap on K3-VET.

    Hello everyone.
    Please excuse me for my English.

    Trustafoks, I think it is painted. I will specify.

    Vehicle manufactured in 2003. JB-DET engine.
    Car imported from Japan, but judging by the technical state, long used in Russia.

    Of major repairs - automatic transmission was replaced.

    Over the weekend, I just washed the whole car. It was a nightmare! :)
    I changed the radio to a new 2din with the monitor.
    Replaced the interior light to LED.
    Also an installed +12 V connector for the DVR (in the glovebox). Very necessary device in Russia.

    to alz2605:
    In Russia there is only one legal size license number plates.
    I had no choice.

    to joeleow:
    Now I use Bridgestone blizzak spike-01 175/65 R14.

    Thank you all!

    The tyres must be comfortable. Do they rub the fenders?
