    Service documents available: receipts for work by TME

    Import documents available: no

    Other important points:bunch of spare parts, come with the car, including a set of Alpine DDLinear splits speakers and matching amp - even better than the MBQuarts :) Turbos are currently rolled back to 255awkw as they are the first iteration, first generation of the TME Extreme kit and TME is still developing the turbos. I will notify TME of the new owner of the car (if the new owner wishes) so that they can keep you up to date on any developments. At some point TME will likely ask for the car to come in for some testing on the turbos, to determine what their upper limit really is and if anything additional is to be done. That being said it ran at 298awkw on the dyno without any major issues, it was the second iteration of TME extreme turbos that gave us reason to roll it back. The fuel line from the tank to the filter was going to be replaced with a better bit of kit like the rest of the fuel line. TME was making this for me as a favor, Ill have them touch base with the new owner to discuss whether there'll be any cost to the new owner if you want to go ahead with that.

    Also you could go further if you went for flex


    Reason for selling: I've bought a new car that's still track-capable, but a little bit less 'race car' for daily comfort.

    more info:
    Brakes - need to go through the solutions on the forums for break squeal. You could just return to standard brakes if you wanted, as an alternative.
    Radiator - Currently there's a Gopher radiator with Spal fans and a fan shroud installed, it also comes with a new OEM Koyo radiator and the original fans. If you intend on driving it long distances as a daily I'd recommend returning to the standard Koyo (or potentially removing the shroud from the Gopher)
    Tune/vacuum leak - it occasionally stalls when pulling up to a complete stop. It will start again immediately without issue. All sorts of possibilities have been suggested here (idle may be too low, tune at idle may be off, may be a vacuum leak somewhere), but ultimately its more of an annoyance currently.

    Nice ride. cant believe it's not snapped up at that price. Wish I'd come across it before building mine! Good luck with it, don't go any lower as price doesn't seem to trigger sales with these. Just have to find someone wanting to get into one.

    I am contemplating getting back into a VR4 after a few years cooling off.

    I would buy it, but I hate tan interior :p

    Seriously though, awesome car. Should sell when the right buyer comes along.

    @TME_Steve or Lyndsey (not sure if he's on here) semi-regularly have VR4s with interiors that they part out - if you would buy it as you say, they could probably sort you out with an interior in time :) stil lbe cheaper than buying one with a black interior and doing all the engine, gearbox, diff, suspension work etc.by a considerably price margin.

    Oh trust me I know what a money pit these cars can be, I was doing some work to one before the bolt on turbos were starting out, but had one on Flex with about every mod that was around before doing turbos + internals. It made about 206KW from memory, so nothing compared to yours, but decent for 2014.

    It then got flood damaged and sat around in Steve's shed for far too long before being parted out!

    I'm going to be keeping an eye out for COTY Black Leather, or another interior. I will certainly be giving this car some serious consideration.

    The other option is a Levorg, but they are slow :p

    Yeh, interior is easy fix. Just gotta wait for a spare black interior to come up/ part out. (Actually think I enquired about yours at the time) Everything else done to this far outweighs that though. Lots of $$$ and time saved if you buy this one.

    hi JP tried to call several time but phone was switched off, how frequently does engine turn off itself? does it happen in all temperature condition? What are chances of having that issue fixed before the sale? Are you willing to negotiate further on the current price?

    Hi Murat, sorry didnt see your message.

    mate really depends on how you drive it. The build of this Legnum is essentially designed around the 'because race car' mentality - so if you drive it like a race car it'll use petrol like one.

    If you babied it everywhere you might get away with 15-17L/100km, maybe. I tend to give it a few kicks about town so I tend to sit around 19-20L/100km
