Honda Racing White
My apologies for the delay in sending you these details! Since getting back to Japan from the Wedding and Honey Moon, I have been steadily ploughing through 3 week's worth of e-mails - and catching up on sleep!
Your Civic Type R is of course now well on it's way to the UK! Here are the full details:
2000 (April) Civic Type R 1,600cc DOHC V-Tec. EK9. Honda Racing White. 5 Speed Manual. Equipment includes: ABS, Dual SRS Airbags with Momo Steering Wheel, Air Conditioning, Power Steering, Power Mirrors with retract mode, Fitted Mats, Privacy Glass on the rear, Wind Deflectors, Rear Spoiler, Original Integra Type R 98 16" alloy wheels, double wishbone suspension, etc. Seats are Recaro reclinable items, factory fitted of course.
This car carries uprated suspension and a rear exhaust section. Unfortunately as the car wasn't send to Yokohama from Kyushu for me to inspect before shipment, I wasn't able to identify the brand, but these improve the car's sound and handling further and will make a mild improvement to performance too, I daresay. Inside there is an uprated hifi and a pair of Defi gauges showing oil and water temperatures, controlled by a Defi Link II unit. These are stuct to the dashboard with just some double sided tape, so if required - we can source and supply an A Pilar pod later (Provided they're 60mm diameter) to make the installation tidier.
The car is of auction grade 4. Condition is outstanding. Interior has no faults to report and the driver's seat shows very little wear compared to what is normally seen on these. Clearly this car was very well cared for and loved. If I remember correctly from the description given, this has been a non smoker's car since new. The last owner was so particular about keeping the car well, it has virtually no faults at all to report on the exterior aside from possibly tiny scratches to bumper corners and a small pin dent on either side. There are some minor scratches / corrosion of paint from the edge of each wheel. Refurbishment to make them like new is possible (As is a change of colour if preferred) at cost of around £275.00. Engine bay is similarly in excellent condition. I ought to add that as I didn't see the car - the tyres weren't checked and so nothing had been budgetted at this point towards costs for replacement tyres if required. I think they're OK though.I am very pleased we managed to get you a 2000 model and with the quality of this Civic Type R - It's as perfect condition as I have come across, with genuine unabused use and mileage.
You will be wanting the full details of costs, so here's the information:
Car cost: 1,320,000 Yen. Auction Fee: 16,800 Yen. FOB Fee: 80,000 Yen.TOTAL FOB: 1,416,800 Yen.
FOB Fees cover the costs of transporting the car to storage yard, storage fees, deregistration, customs paperwork, customs clearance, translation of deregistration, shipping arrangements and loading onto vessel. This work is done by Yamagin Corp. who are the export company Newera Imports buys all cars at auctions through.
Taking into account the cost of UK taxes, shipping, insurance, UK modifications, MOT, Model report hire, E-SVA test, UK registration, plus all preparation in the UK as described above in detail - The usive of our fee is calculated by our system as: £12,060The following UK costs are not included, which you may want to consider: (1) Cat 1 Alarm Immobiliser (Cat 1 alarms immobilisers are available from around £330 £150 respectively).(2).Waxoyl to the chassis (£75). Prices exclude VAT.
These are considerations which only need to be addressed as the car is about to arrive to UK. I'm pleased we got this one - and trust you'll agree - it's an excellent example. As ever, the pictures won't do the car it's full justice. It will look brilliant once completed and fully valetted for your collection upon completion.
This car's already departed on 7th November aboard a dedicated car carrier vessel - currently scheduled to arrive in Southampton on 20th December December. We expect it to be with our UK preparation facilities by Christmas, for completion around 3rd or 4th week of January (Bearing in mind it usually takes an average of 4 weeks to process a car fully upon arrival - but there's also a Christmas break).
As detailed in "How our system works", the next payment will need to be paid as the car's shipped. Please ensure this payment departs your account in UK to Yamagin's account (details attached) by 25th November. I attach Yamagin's account details and also information on how our system works, is shown after the car's pictures here.
