Story: im a mechanic and one of our customers was this jap guy who had this sprinter and did some work on it, and i told him im lookin for one and he said hes goin back to japan and sellin for 1500 bucks. *i was pwned by swearing filter* that. i told if he cant sell it come back and ill give u 5.

what do u no it came back a week later on a tow truck with a snapped timming belt, he took 500. cheapest timming belt ever (4ac) $8.50 and 10 mins work fired up first go.

Good buy mate!!!

$500, lol, bargain of the century.
Are those rims those rims that are made by Bob Jane called Rodney Jane Wheels?

^^^ yeah theyre the ones with new bridgestone potenzas, they fit pretty good except the front requires spacers cause they hit on the strut base, if youve got aftermarket coilovers with smaller strut bases they shouldnt be a problem.
