2005 T Sport VVTL-I Thunder in Excellent Condition, Lots of Recent Maintanence


Recommended Posts

I've decided to get a cheap runaround as I'm saving for a house deposit, so this amazing T Sport is for sale!  

The previous owner looked at several before buying this one for it's rust free condition, having spent a large part of it's life in an underground car park (whilst in use) 

He did extensive maintenance, including in the last six months: 

Renewing all fluids and filters, including Shell Helix Ultra 5w40 fully synthetic oil and Toyota genuine oil filter  

Denso Iridium spark plugs

Yuasa silver Battery

Toyota genuine brake discs and pads at the front, pads at the rear and refurbished brake calipers all round (few small chips on these)

Toyota genuine rear springs and isolators

Monroe oem quality rear dampers 

Four wheel alignment 

Toyota genuine driver's seatbelt assembly (last mot advised it was slightly frayed)

He even paid £400 to have all the various small car park dents removed; there's only one now, that occurred during my ownership. He also bought a vehicle specific reg plate that looks great (and is included!) 

Shortly after buying, I took it to Blue Streak Automotive in Northampton, who come highly recommended as a Toyota specialist, for a post purchase inspection and test drive. Richard was very complimentary about the condition of the car.  

In my ownership, I've fitted Philips RacingVision GT200 H7 headlight bulbs and LED side lights that have improved visibility and the look of the car. I've fitted BRD shifter bushes and a weighted gearknob that have improved the gearchange; it's much smoother and precise now. I removed the air intake butterfly valve and fitted a K&N panel air filter; this has made a subtle but noticeable improvement to acceleration and intake sound (I can replace the valve and / or the oem Mann air filter if the buyer prefers)  

The wheels were recently refurbished.

Michelin Pilot Sport 4 tyres with 7-8mm tread all four corners, dated 2020.

HPI clear, MOT Oct 21, 91k miles, six previous owners, stamped service book with lots of invoices and both remote central locking keys. I've replaced the batteries on these, yielding a much quicker response to pressing the buttons!

A fantastic car in excellent condition with a significant amount of recent maintenance and fresh Michelin PS4's 🙂
