I bought my VX back in September 2010 almost 12 years ago with 32700 miles on the clock and I've really enjoyed the driving experience - but after all this time I finally have the itch to try something new so its now up for sale.

Current mileage is 74,300. Usually driven at least once a week and always run on Shell V-Power.

Current MOT expires 25 October 2022

The car has been maintained by VX220 specialist Plans Motorsport during my ownership (with the occasional trip to Back on Track)

A full set of photos can be found here : https://photos.app.g...pqQbunQNqrh7XGA  (cover exterior, interior, spares and paperwork)

Car is currently running approx 190 BHP - all performance mods/mapping done by Courtenay Sport :
- full Tullet 2.5 inch exhaust system : 4 branch manifold, 200 cell cat, repackable silencer
- Courtenay Sport air box mod, 2.4 inlet manifold
- port and polished cylinder head, with double valve springs and Schrick cams

I have receipts for all work done during my ownership and servicing receipts back to the original purchaser in 2003

Ignoring the usual annual servicing and consumables below is a short summary of the points of interest over the years :

Wheels are standard VX220 NA OEM (powder coated in gloss black). Fronts are on Bridgestone Potenza RE040's and rears on Michelin PilotSport4's
