Almost all enquiries begin with a startled “why’s the mileage so low for a 19-year old car?”!
The gentleman in the pic, an ex-racer and pit stop technician, spent nearly an hour poring through the car for rusts, dampness, damage, mechanical faults et al, but just couldn’t find any to his frustration. He, especially, couldn’t find any evidence that the mileage was tempered with, saying it was a trade secret in knowing how he could tell.
I didn’t show him the carefully collated maintenance records from Day One, attesting to the mileage at each service interval, excluding the wheel changes and tyre rotations, which I made sure the mileage is recorded as well.
I think my legal background has something to do with my OCD in documenting evidence lol.
No, I’m not hell bent on keeping the 20VT as the lowest mileage in the world. It’s strictly a leisure car for the lazy Malaysian weekends, which I’m not around to enjoy, being mostly an Aussie resident.
For the record, the mileage is 6,048 miles (9,734 km) today.
