Hey Johnny,

Yes, majority of my mods were sourced by Matt at Injection Imports including the Cusco.

Love your car Garyman, I'm in Newcastle too and got my 2011 GE yesterday - with steel wheels - any idea where I can get some 15 or 16" alloys in Newcastle???

Hey Dave
Thanks for the kind words ;)
My Enkei NT03 are available if you fancy them ?
As for suggestions on where else, I can recommend Revolutions near Metro Centre but you'll be looking 600+

Happy 7th Birthday to my Jazz!!  8)

Just had its 7th service and 4th MOT and not a single problem although I asked them to change the battery after my recent outage.

Everything else was fine so total bill for MOT and battery was just over 98- 35 for MOT and 63 supplied and fitted battery so all is well.

I got a lovely CRV as courtesy car and was really nice!!  8)

Right guys,

Looks like time to move my Jazz on.

If anyone is interested in taking on my Jazz with all the modifications on, please drop me a pm.

I will advertise it properly in the next few days and on the likes of Pistonhead and Autotrader and see if there is anyone out there who will take it as it is.

Also have plenty of other modifications and parts that I never got round (or couldn't be bothered) in fitting

Sorry to hear that you are parting ways with your Jazz... although considering how long ago you posted the message I guessing its already gone.

A lot of hardwork and some tasteful mods really set your one apart..

What next? :)

Nope still here.

Don't want to let go plus it's near impossible selling a modified car, never mind a modified Jazz

Seems a shame to break her up as everything goes together nicely.

However, I may have to if I get desperate to sell up although I'm not at that stage just yet

Noo don't break her up. It would mean one less awesome Jazz on the road (although I know it is the only or recouping your investment)

I hope you find her a good home.
I think it's difficult selling a modified car is you don't get much return in your investment. I have been keeping eye on few modified GDs and almost all of them were listed for month or so.

Yeah, I've got it up for 6,500 and even then I think it's cheap but let's face it, who's gona pay that for a Jazz?

My valuation was based on a standard version of mine with simialr mileage and adding 1k for all the mods and bodykit and even then I've not had any interest although I haven't really actively tried

It's a Spoon N1 backbox purchased from Simon at Hendy Motorsports for 350 delivered iirc all those years ago.

However, you need to double check whether you need a GE6 N1 (like mine) or the GE8 N1 as I've heard the Si rear bumper is the same as what the Japanese get for their RS

Bump

Will be putting up a proper advert on the forum in the next few days.

I've put a feeler post on Facebook Jmotion page and got quite  a few interests in certain parts but ideally like to sell it as one complete package.

Reduced to 6,000 for a quick sale

Another year on already!

9th service and 5th MOT performed last week.

First time since I got the car that didn't have a service plan as I had planned to sell her last year.

Service was only 165, 35 for MOT, 10 for courtesy car insurance as I had to had both myself and the wife (normally I don't get charged for this).  However, I was called later in the day to have my rear disc and pads changing so that added another 240 to the bill

Did less that 5k miles last year- car is just under 59k miles.

Been offered a 3 year service plan at 18 per month DD but I get fairly good discount with my dealership so I don't think theres much saving in doing the service plan.

At this rate, i'll just end up keeping the Jazz until it dies
