1998 Mistubishi Legnum Super VR-4 - Silver - 103,000km
TLDR; Great car, rare model - buy it now for $12,500. Currently has 12 months registration (VIC) and will be sold with RWC.
Long story: Imported from Japan in August 2011 through J-Spec with 63,000 KM. The car was sourced from Saitama. Have 100+ photo's and some video from the initial inspection in Japan. Thousands spend on mods and maintenance with receipts. I have the dereg/export papers from Japan too which lists KM's at the last 2 registrations in Japan. Very clean inside, engine and transmission running very smoothly.
Reason for sale: have debts, need money to get them under control :(

The bad Paint is showing its age in some areas which is to be expected for a 15 year old car. The paint has some peeling on the rear spoiler, though this is currently painted gunmetal plastidip which can be easily removed. A dint on drivers side and front passenger side doors. I may get the dints fixed prior to selling.
Fun yet practical car. Fold down rear seats creates a wealth of space in the back. Enough to move a 2 seat couch or a single bed. I've moved a 2.5 seat sofa bed easily and also a 3 seat couch having the boot slightly open. Despite spending a fair amount to maintain the car, it has all been preventative and the car has been very reliable.
