Here's a few pictures of my Vitara... Apparently this is one of twelve 2.0L Vitaras that were imported into the country.






I love this little Zook, and it actually packs a surprising punch for its size!

I don't mind mate, i paid £1000 for it...
That's what it was advertised for and i tried my hardest to haggle a few quid off but he kept resorting to saying
"these are really rare", when he kept saying that i presumed he was saying that because it was an auto, it was later when i found out why it's rare.
Either way, me and the Mrs love it. Very Happy

Not a bad deal at all there, especially if there are only 12 of them in the country!  No wonder the fella didn't want to drop the price.

Cheers MarkL,
well i didn't think i was paying over the odds for it, me and the Mrs looked at different Vitaras for about a grand over the space of a few weeks and to be honest most of the 98/99 models were between £895-£1300 so the price seemed about right.

We did go to view a tatty fat/wide boy for £895 from some dodgy car dealer in west London, it was when we started asking questions that he said it had no tax or mot! When i asked why it was so much he said because they are now becoming collectors items Laughing

Well it has 275/40R17 Cooper Cobra tires fitted, got no idea where the wheels come from, that's another thing the bloke selling the car was going on about. He did say how much they cost each but i can't remember now.

Must admit i've not even heard them screech in the dry yet, and believe me i've tried!
It holds the road better than my Impreza!!! Shocked

Same tyres as mine, and bloody not cheap either! I had to buy two for the last MOT. In fact when I phoned THREE tyre places including Tyre Express and Setyres they both said they can't get them. So had to buy them in from a website who order them from the states as they are fitted to the Jeep Cherokee.

I must admit though I am getting fed up with the width dictating direction on the road though, would like to get a standard set of wheels lol.

Lovely looking motor there, one thing is wrong... it's too clean  Very Happy

Mmm... That's not good, the front nearside tyre is gonna need replacing quite soon, if their too much i'll do a hunt on eBay & Gumtree for a used one, the Mrs only poodles around town in it and the only dirt it sees is the dirt in the gutter.

I know what you mean about dictating the direction, they do seem to pull you about all over the road when it's un-even.

You can talk about clean!.... Yours looks like it just come out of the showroom in your sig! Laughing

I think it's stock other than the wheels and the bull bar on the front, i have recently found out the bar on the front is an Australian aftermarket part called a Kangaroo bar? Still waiting for the snow to turn up mwatters, it's been one of the mildest winters for many years so far, we'll probably get a good dousing in Jan/Feb, i'm sure there will be plenty of pictures posted once it arrives Smile
