    Hello Mate.

    M3 Evo........good taste......

    Vanos is the main thing really as you already point out.

    Has it got a braided clutch hose? That makes a world of difference.

    I have had to renew my front calipers at about 90000 (so they are like new now).

    I havnt had any other problems at all with mine and i also came from a CTR. it was a 50th Anniversary Edition.

    Havnt looked back.

    Welcome mate.

    Amos

    Well as mentioned the vanos has been replaced, its done about 120k but pretty good nick. Runs well.

    I get it on Friday, but im 21 so insurance is a bugger. Managed to get it down to 1340 so far full comp!

    Also its only a weekend toy like the civic so not as if its going to get major use. Just hope its reliable as ive only had jap so far!
