Very nice GU 4.2, but the guy is delusional with that price :surprised:
I'd say no more than R120k if you're really pushed for it because of the condition being immaculate.

Budget another R25-30k and send it to Michael at Sojo Automotive for a turbo !!! :blonde:

I see its advertised twice on gumtree for different prices: R115K neg and R138K/

Looks like someone must have bought it and then decided to resell it again for more cash :think:

It certainly seems to be generating interest.

It could be, if there are no lurking gremlins.

Does it have to be a GQ??

Maybe it'll be easier to find a GU.

I've got my mind set on a gq, is it possible to buy a tb42 and convert it to a diesel? Or would that be to expensive?
