If you're going to buy from UK wait till next spring time the prices will be better
People ask more at this time of year just before the snow arrives ;)

I believe they used to be Concorde Garage in Wrasbury who seem to have moved out to the Cotswolds. Their jimnys were always at the top end of the pricing which is probably because of their warranty on obligations as a commercial enterprise. However I do know they fit the best Kingpin and shim kits :)

Probably THESE GUYS - theyre just up the road from me at Blockley, I discovered them completely by accident when I went to collect some Blockley tyres for my vintage car!

I did approach them when I was looking for a convertible Jimny but they weren't very helpful and gave all the convertibles a thorough slating - needless to say I went elsewhere. Then only 5 months later they're selling two! :angry:

JackonlyJack might be right about the autumn/winter prices being enhanced by the weather - its the same with convertible (sports) cars - they sell quicker in spring/summer at slightly enhanced prices.

Max about an hour or two after posting my rant this came up www.donedeal.ie/cars-for-sale/suzuki-jimny-low-miles/20480958 only niggle is the 4wd is a button and not a stick. Spoke with the owner and he went out and checked the boot and behind the headlights and said yes a bit of surface rust but not structural and no holes. He's about 300 miles away £2580 = €2900 think we might have a Vooky for crimbo / Christmas .

Its the same year as mine, and mine is a convertible and therefore far more prone to corrosion than a "conventional" bodied Jimny I would have thought. Nice colour though.
I too would prefer to have levers and not buttons for selecting 4wd but have had no problems other than the led light on the 4L switch has failed.

Check under the floor in the boot where the jack goes for corrosion, also its very difficult to get to see but I think try to get a look behind the headlights on a body mounting - take a mirror-on-a-stick and a torch to see around corners and difficult places.

It seems very low mileage for the year. The engine is probably the M13a cam-chain job like mine which is ok but the g'box is likely the R72 so make sure its not making any 'orrible noises.
You've probably already found it but check out the BigJimny Wiki and get clued-up on all that might relate to that vehicle.

Looks nice from the few small (exterior only) pictures but better to see it up close in the real world and on a bright day. You never know - the interior might smell rank from 3 year old spilled milk or something!

Very Good Luck Dirtbird
