Sweet 130. Those are rare. Especially LHD as last I heard pedal boxes and dash kits for the conversion are basically extinct.

That's probably why you have to email him for the price.

Cuz it will make you faint.

I'm afraid to E-Mail for the price in case it makes me reach for my PayPal account.

Must resist.

Maybe next year...

Where the hell do you get your information ? The pedal boxes aren't handed.

Sharp 130. A close friend has one in transit, currently configured as a box truck, that we'll be converting to a crew cab.

Very risky.

At the very minimum you'd need to remove both driveshafts.

Got mine back this morning from having another oil leak fixed. I couldn't see where it was from and thought it was from behind one of the pulleys at the front so i booked it in while its still on warranty. Turns out it was just the rocker gasket
We'll see.....

Is the Evoque a real Landie?

Find out here!



I reckon it did okay for a girly-fashion-accessory mini-SUV.
