  • About JPB
    Location
    Ellington, by Morpeth, Northumberland, UK
    Year
    Built: June 2005, registered in Japan: January 2006.
    Color
    Classic Silver Metallic
    Engine
    2nz-fe, almost stock.
    Suspension
    Unyielding is the kindest way to put it, but as it left the factory.
    Audio
    Kenwood DDX4017 (DAB) head unit
    Speakers all as they came from the factory, they're coping so far..
    Wheels & Tires
    Wheels: One of many factory options when car was new.
    Tyres: Cheap (Routeway "Ecoblue") stock 185/65%x15, presumably made of teflon as they still have 4mm across the front and 6mm at the rears after 30000 KM of my driving, but have absolutely no grip on anything other than smooth, metalled road surfaces. Twitchy is good, it keeps me awake at the wheel..
    Future Modifications
    Might buy the car some decent rubber for his next birthday, almost certainly due a fresh set of rear ARB bushes and I'm keeping my eyes open for a rare factory "moon roof" to replace the stock, solid roof panel, which drums even less tunefully than Phil Collins out of Genesis..
