Im looking for one too. Just waiting to find the right one. I have seen a few lately that have nearly 200 000km. what is the average amount of kms these cars have these days? 200 000 seems like a lot. And what price should i be looking at. They seem to be around 13g-15g for a 6sp here in canberra. is that about right? Any common problems that they are starting to have that should be looking for?
oil leaks are the main concern. look underneath the car etc. rear main seal is common a common fault and costly to fix as the trans has to come out. ive had my vt since 165000 km it now has 182000. since then ive done, rear main seal, new cam sensor seal and a new waterpump. otherwise its been very reliable a goes awesome.
Like what everyone else has said watch out for the usual leaks. And check the diff and trans for whine or harsh or thumping gear changes as we all know what people do in V8s. Insist on a cold start to check for piston slap and check for blow by and other odd engine noise. But remember they are noisy engines because of the alloy block so the ticking of lifters may sound worse that it really is.
