    its standard to have the cars restriced in japan. was the 197 not the base model then the 230 version? sounds like someones been lying when you bought the car.

    Have a chat with SVA imports in Kent, I'm sure they can help out or at least point you in the right direction.

    It sounds like the car has seen a fair bit of action then.
