Well guys, I finally broke down and got both kits :
Item # 58189, Alfa Romeo 155 V6 TI (TA03F)
Item # 58200, David Jun TA03F Pro Limited Edition
They are both brand new in the box. Both boxes are not shrink wrapped (maybe they didnít come like that in Japan?), and the David Jun box has some wear on the lower right hand corner. Since the boxes arenít sealed, I opened them up to make sure everything was inside, and what a surpriseÖ
Everything is sealed, 100% brand new, in its original packaging!
I brought them home and my wife took one look and got furious!!! She told me to return them STAT, which of course I canít do Ė the owner wonít take them back (and I canít really blame him, theyíve been sitting in his shop for like 12 years).
So, Iím kinda at a crossroads. These are such a rare find that I really donít want to sell them. Man, even if I keep one of them, I donít know which one to keep. The DJ version comes with all the goodies in it, so naturally I want to build that one for drifting, On the other hand, that version is more likely to sell, so my wife would happier that I may be able to get rid of it sooner.
If I did keep it, itís so special that Iíd almost feel bad putting the wear and tear on it by drifting it. And the regular version doesnít have any hop ups so if I built that one Iíd have to locate all the hard-to-find stuffÖ
These were pretty expensive so Iím not looking to lose money right away either. Hell, at $500 for both kits, Iíd still lose money (the guy wanted box price for them). ARGGHH!!! What to do, what to do.
