    Hi, Derek and welcome to the forum. You have a good looking car there. About 90% of the forum members, however, are from the UK and use right hand drive cars. There are several members in the US and Canada but we are spread out all over the place. There are many visitors to the forum whose attention you might attract with your ad. You don't have many miles on the car for the year which is a plus. It will probably be difficult getting your asking price with an R title. The repairs might have been relatively minor but people often shy away from them because they are afraid of what problems they might inherit. I do wish you luck with your sale. Your timing is perfect as summer is around the corner. Frankie

    As Swamper says...

    The North American version of the car used the 3.2l S52B32 engine, whilst the rest of the world received the more powerful 3.2 l S50B32 variant.


    It was due to strict emissions control in the US
