In full agreement, there are far more than 100 left. It's one of those selling techniques in the hope they will get more for the car than it's worth.

Providing you have the same number still, over the next few days I'll fire you a whatsapp with a few photos. Don't go getting your hopes ho, she doesn't look too great right now  :D

Considering I've done regular drives to Doncaster, it's nothing in a Paseo. The next month or so will be a quiet one at work so I'll have a little time spare to sort some odd bits myself. However anything that needs money thrown at it will have to wait, due to being paid by the job and not the hour. Either way it'll be sold on once finished anyway. I'll be moving it soon so I'll get a running video etc for you too.

The brakes are... awful. Idles high due to being sat around. Paintwork needs a buffing again, again due to being stood. The alloys are original with no centres, but sprayed black. Rear bumper could do with replacement and/or paint. Steering wheel isn't straight as previous owner had an OMP wheel on and took no care in fitting the wheel straight again. Will also need an MOT.

Like I say, I've got this Galliano going in a month or so. Needs a bit of work and an MOT. Other than that, the rest of the fleet are staying as they are for the time being.

I can't imagine it's got a 4e. If it has, it'll be the first I've heard of a 4e running a 5e inlet manifold. Ofcourse, if it swaps one way nothings to say it doesn't swap the opposite.

I can only assume so. Mine was had from a dealer around Cardiff/Newport, and Clive down in Selsey got one for his Paseo at a local dealer to him. I'm running out of second hand good ones so I think I may keep hold of my stock for the foreseeable.

I personally think you'll kick yourself for not buying yours back. Didn't you have a retrim and everything on it? All hes done is poorly photograph externally but nothing interior or engine wise.

I'm not sure about that, however I'm in the belief that being one of only 8 left, it's worth putting some money into for years to come.

The 5efe is a 1.5, only found in the Paseo here. The 1.3 is a 4efe fitted to the Starlet and the bug eye Corolla (1997-2000 or so). If it has the 1.3 I would imagine it'll have the more rounded inlet manifold. It's either that or he was told it's a Corolla inlet on it and took that that it has the Corolla engine.

Well worth for a finishing touch for sure. I managed to score a brand new one fitted to a car I bought, so I quickly got that fitted to my Galliano.

You can actually pick up boot badges from Toyota, around 100 iirc. I'd be wary if he things a 1.3 has been put in... why would you do that? I assume then the engine bay all looks the same and untouched since you had it?

I'll keep you posted on the Galliano front. It's far from perfect but a little love and it'll be a worthy investment.

Going by his ad, I'd say hes looking to get shot fairly quick. Most will need a bit of work now I think. I'd offer 6 for it and no more than 7 to pay. The rust repairs will be cheaper than you'd first think, what else needs doing?

Failing that I intend on chucking a bit of money at the Galliano I picked up some 8 months ago, getting a ticket on it and selling on. It'll probably be February before I do though.

You're the second person I know with this problem in such a short space of time. I'll keep my eye out for some alloys to become center donors

i thought it looked a time consuming job >:(, have a look if you can please and let me know thanks, having to use the key and the emblem cover is on borrowed time!!

I'll have a dig around in the next few days. I'm pretty sure I saw one the other day, where I put it is the question...

I've got one kicking about somewhere, if not I'm fairly sure there's still one in the spares car. Bit of a pain to fit... rear seats out, drivers seat out, carpet lifted and rear plastics out. I can assist if you like.

Hi guys,

Considering organising a plot for Japanese Auto Extravaganza this yeah. Who would be interested in a 4 day weekend?

Dates are 8th-11th August and it's held at the Norfolk Showground near Norwich. May be a bit of a trek for some but I'm up for a 4hr drive.

I'm currently waiting on hearing back about plot availability, but once I confirm a plot, 5 tickets must be ordered within a short time after the purchase, so that I can keep the plot.

JAE is the largest Japanese car show in the UK, which caters for all sorts of Japanese cars,  be them standard, modified or even brand new. There's plenty of variety - so let's get our name out there!

Full weekend tickets, including camping, are 35.

Who's interested?

Distinctive by the aftermarket alloys. There's a few on the BBU batch. Keep us posted how you get on.
