Integra Si V-Tec
Here's details of the Integra Si V-Tec at long last! Thanks for all your patience!
1994 (Month not displayed on the screen, so will need to be confirmed later), Integra Si V-Tec DOHC Black Metallic.
Equipment includes: ABS, PAS, Central Locking, Electric windows, optional driving lights installed in the front bumer, Air Conditioning, fitted mats, rear spoiler, privacy glass in the rear, original hifi, etc.
After mkt. parts: Momo Steering Wheel, Carbon Fibre trimmed handbrake lever, Racing Sparco gear knob,Recaro driver's seat, Indiglo dials, Field V-Tec controller, Induction kit with alloy piping and oil impregnated mesh filter, Splitfire ignition leads, coilover height adjustable suspension, 17" alloys with 205/40/ZR17 sized tyres, clear rear "Euro" style lenzes, After mkt exhaust from the cat-back, with removable baffle. Note that the wheels are each fitted with high quality locks. The key is hidden in the passenger footwell behind the carpet. Whilst checking the car, I noticed the screws for holding the centre caps on were rusty, so I sourced some new stainless steel phillips screws to replace these.
The interior's condition reflects low mileage. Seats are unworn, as are mats, switchgear and mechanical aspects such as clutch, brake discs, etc. The only damage to report with the interior is the rear parcel shelf, which has evidently had some shelf speakers fitted before, judging by small holes there.The mileage displayed is not warranted. Looking over it, it doesn't seem to have done much more mileage if anything. I estimate around 70,000km (45,000 miles) judging by the wear the car shows. Brakes, for example are still hardly worn. The Field V-Tec Controller is not powered up - so it wasn't possible to check if it's working OK. We will have Gareth look at it to find out where not connected - but as it came free with the car, if it will take significant time to set up and have working, there may be an extra charge for this. Note that the CD Changer in the boot doesn't have a cassette inside. It may be better to replace the hifi for a high quality item. Let me know if you want me to source something this end.Also trying to see if we can find a used Racaro seat to match the driver's - at low cost. If sourced, there would be an additional charge for this. It may not be possible to find one before shipment, which would mean the seat and rails would need to follow inside a car on a subsequent boat. Please let me know what you'd prefer.The Indiglo dials also don't seem to be illuminating (blue should be the colour), although I checked the car in relatively bright light. In any case, they are US spec gauges and it's unlikely we can make the speedo work accurately in the UK with this calibration. Also noticed there are some cracks in the trim behind the plastic clear cover, from when the indiglo faces were fitted. We are sourcing some Type R original clocks which will be converted to 180 mph and read acurately in mph. These should be a straight direct swap. I propose we calibrate the odometer to 45,000 miles, which is about accurate.Auction grade of this example is 3. The car has been lowered excessively and as a result the front spoiler has ground itself on some occasions in the past, resulting in damage cracks to the front lip. The bonnet and roof have got some milkiness in the laquer and will require respraying. There are also some key scratches on the o/s quarter and driver's door. On the n/s, there are some small dents to the bottom of the wing and pin dents on the passenger door. On the rear bumper there is a mark where the car's nudged something. The electric aerial is broken and needs replacing. Also, the rear wiper has been removed. Each of these faults is to be repaired as part of preparation, but mentioned so you're aware of the faults found on the car. Note also that the wheels on the n/s have some minor scratches. Tyres are each worn on the inside due to the camber the car's running from lowered suspension. We'll be replacing all 4 tyres as part of preparation costs in the UK.
Underneath the car, there's no significant rust - confirming this car's spent much of it's life in Tokyo, where it was registered.
All in all, considering this is an older car - it's in good, original condition! The test drive revealed no faults at all. A good gearbox, no warpage to brakes, decent V-Tec performance from 6,000 rpm and a good comfortable ride. Checking the engine oil also showed it's been changed relatively recently. I tested the car with the baffle fitted. I expect with this removed, response should be better.
All in all, an excellent example, complete with most of the mods desired! You will be wanting the full details of costs, so here's the information:
Car cost: 290,000Yen. Auction Fee: 7,500 Yen. FOB Fee: 75,000 Yen.TOTAL FOB: 372,500 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. At current exchange rate, the above figure of 372,500 Yen equates to approx. £2,000.Taking into account the cost of UK taxes, shipping, insurance, UK modifications, MOT, UK registration, plus all preparation in the UK as described above in detail - The usive of our fee is calculated by our system as: £5,750.The 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). All prices would be + VAT.
You may also want to reserve a private number plate (See link to DVLA's number plate website from our links page). 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, with all paintwork sorted, suspension raised a little, then upon completion fully valetted for your collection upon completion.
We expect departure on 8th June aboard a dedicated car carrier vessel - to arrive in Southampton around 2nd week of July. We expect it to be with our UK preparation facilities by 3rd week of July, for completion around 2nd week of August (Bearing in mind it usually takes an average of 4 weeks to process a car fully upon arrival).
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 6th June at the latest. I attach Yamagin's account details and also information on how our system works, is shown after the car's pictures here.
