I'd say so... with that mileage and at that price... just make sure the 60K (that's in miles so IDK what the conversion is for KM) tune up has been done.

what is it? Z32 im assuming?

i am also assuming its a Twin Turbo since you mentioned the spoiler.

ask DZ (fellow canadian) about if the pricing is good. for some reason, the Canadian value of cars is alot different than the US value.

Re: should I ?

price seems a little high, but it is a 2 seater 5 speed, which is about as rare as it gets over in japan.. 70% seem to be auto and about 80% of that seems to be 2+2's... anyway you could probably get one cheaper if you imported one yourself, just takes a bit more waiting... if you really are in richmond (vancouver) there should be tons of importation companies around the city, but the one i will use is www.importconcern.ca cheap cheap prices... can find TT's for under 6k there... mind you they're not in the best condition and they're auto, but they're still a pretty good deal and usually have pretty low km's on em...

anyway, if you can talk the guy down to 10500-11k then it might be worth it.... check if it's had the 60k miles maintinence done on it tho (timing belt mostly)

Re: should I ?

rhd is overrated nowadays... it's become common around these parts so it's not that special anymore.. more depends on the actual car, which the z32tt is sweet... but if you can find a better deal on a canadian one i'd say go for that instead.

repairs should be the same as any other car... brakes, clutch, perhaps a belt or two every so often if you get unlucky... something to watch out for is your power steering fluid leaking... if it does you'll start burning through alternators like gasoline..

oh... and expect to replace tires more often than any other car... you'll be lighting them up a whole lot as long as the weather isn't too terrible which it always seems to be over there

dude...that car is sweet. worth every bit of the price atleast by american standards.

only thing to be weary of...with such low km's the "soft valves" issue may not have shown itself yet. this problem was fixed in 91, the valves were redesigned in order to prevent loss of compression by a stuck valve which sometimes happens in the earlier model Z32's. it isnt that hard of a fix, considering. pull the head and install the newer style valves.

just something to be careful of.
