    That must be the hardest 146,000kms a T5 has ever seen.

    Mine's in better nick with just under 400K on it.

    It was sitting at $320 all week long , when I checked with 3 minutes to go it was at $980 at close it sold for $1060 , still a bargain when you consider how many bits could be salvaged from it . And yes it did have a hard life by the look of it . But hey I bought a T4 off Ebay for $3500 some years back and swapped the diesel from my sons into the donor van as he wanted the 2.5 petrol . Any way it looked a lot like this one did so after a week or so of fixing some paint repaired the seats and carpeted the side walls and fitting the sons old 2.4 diesel back into it I sold it for a couple of grand more than I paid plus we got the engine we wanted as well .

    yeah.......it's 6 years older than mine and I don't see how you can do so much damage with so few kilometres!
