To many kms you reckon ?

I am a bit concerned with trying to take anything non stock through regency as they can be a pain in the arse about exhausts...
I should just buy SENs... trying to find flights lol

Not at all, so long as it has been maintained well.. Looking at how clean it is I dare say the owner cares about proper servicing but that should never be assumed and always confirmed.

Just ask about the exhaust. It's probably just a muffler, may even have a brand that you can look up to check DBs. Also a very good chance the owner still has the stock exhaust too.

Either this or SEN's is worth looking into.

I don't think the kms are that high...it's average. I mean it's an 11 year old car...so has averaged 10,000kms/year. That's not much. It looks nice and clean, price is about right. Sen's is great too...I'd go for that being a forum member and cos of imola red I wouldn't worry about this other car's exhaust...Sen's has coilovers too...so you're gonna have to get that through regency...but it shouldn't be that hard. Sen probably has the stock struts/springs anyway.

I have stock exhaust you could borrow. I think you'll have trouble getting adjustable coil overs through regency but you may be lucky.

If its a good day they'll check the numbers and everythings rosey.

The birds are singing and you both shake hands and drive off into the sunset.

On an average day they'll look over the car and tell you coil overs are a no no.

The bad day is taking back a second time and then they'll look at it more closely.

(Different inspection but I definitely had to remove mine from my VR4 for compliance when I imported it from Tokyo)

I have e46 04 318i and its done 186000km. Is putting a 10w-40w oil a good idea? as a professional said to go higher.
Don't know what to do yet it does use oil.
