I bought a S-vt sport in november and i am starting to strip down the brakes and suspension to rebuild them with new bushes etc and paint them up and remove any rust. The paint needs a repsray which im hoping to get done in the summer and FI next year.

I hate being reminded of one of my biggest mistakes in life, selling our BRG 2003 S-VT.

God how I miss that car, she was solid and drove like a dream, matching hard top as well. Ah well we live and learn from our mistakes or so they say.

Welcome to menders matey, just keep an eye on the EGR valve, that was the only problem I had in five years of ownership and it cost me an ECU, locks etc!!!

I love mine to bits but this rust issue I have had is very depressing, I knew it had some rust in the rear wing but near the jacking points it has rusted through too.


Thanks though I will keep and eye out for it, anything I should be looking out for?

Also there are big things to come for this car, I should make a build thread
