    Factory Options:
    Driver and passenger airbags
    Full black leather interior (very, very good condition)

    HSD coilovers and top mounts

    TRD panel filter
    HKS exhaust (no branding on the backbox, but googling the JASMA stamp brings up an archived HKS page, the exhaust note is similar to the HKS silent hi-power exhaust)

    Private plate, included with sale
    Tinted windows all round
    LPG fuel system (see below)

    Twin Pioneer TSW305C subwoofers
    Fully waxoil undersealed before its first winter in my ownership
    Hornet Cat 1 alarm - I don't know if this works, I've never used it due to OEM security install

    Other bits included with sale:
    JDM Sat Nav remote
    Spare gearbox and diff oil - neither require doing but I've got them anyway so will include them
    2.5l LPG flashlube valve saver fluid
    All MOTs, Service records, plenty of receipts, Original import documents, some original Toyota documentation, all LPG details, LPG certificate

    Car religiously serviced every 10,000kms in my ownership, consisting of 5/30 fully synthetic oil and filter change, air filter cleaned, ignition components replaced when necessary. MOT'd til next June, Taxed until end September

    A rather lengthy paragraph about the LPG conversion as it'll attract questions from genuinely interested people:
    LPG DETAILS – The system was fitted in November 2011 by Autogas 2000 of Carlton Minniott near Thirsk in North Yorkshire. The size and scope of the company’s work can be seen with a quick google search, they are one of the oldest and best regarded LPG conversion specialists in the UK. This is their only line of business. The system was serviced at 169296 kms and comes with all installation and inspection documents, LPG declaration certificate, and Autogas paperwork. The system is a multi injector sequential system rather than the cheaper single injector inlet manifold alternative, with its own ECU, petrol startup, and flashlube system The whole system was fitted at a cost of £1,740, a value which I recooperated in the space of a year.I haven’t sat down and worked it out recently with exact figures but this car costs me less to run per week than my Seat Leon FR diesel did (which returned 55mpg), and this is inclusive of petrol startup and flashlube costs with mixed driving.

    Bad points:
    Slight buckle to rear quarter panel near LPG filler cap
    Front bumper has come off not too well in a fight with a badger and stonechips
    Minor rust to front wings due to contact with wheels on lock - see pictures. (Dual wishbone suspension design means wheels don't camber in under cornering like single wishbone suspension) This hasn't worsened in two years and the paint hasn't bubbled at all, it's just where the wheels have contacted the arches
    Small crack to rear bumper - see pictures
    The car only has one key.

    £2,300 with ICE install or £2,100 without. I'll listen to serious offers but don't waste my time. Location: North Yorkshire, 15 minutes from the A1. More pics available on request.

    P/X: Try me, but probably not.

    Any questions please pm me or ring / text 07835 698 685, I'll get on here when I can.

    Random question but would it be possible to get this running on petrol again? Would it be a lot of hassle?

    not at all. it can run on petrol anyway, just press the lpg ecu switch once and it's on petrol. or if you wanted to bin the system entirely, remove the lot, spot weld the holes up on the inlet mani, stick the lot on ebay. done

    edit: yes it would be possible, no it wouldn't be a lot of hassle.

    it was viewed tonight and the guy's getting back to me and there's a guy waiting on the outcome of that too, so let me know by pm if you're genuinely interested.
