    It is the very thin plastic bit that stops dust and crumbs going down past the stick part of the selector and the black plastic base. The plastic is very brittle and is you push it, it will crack and fail. I made a new one from a template I made. But made it out of the wrong colour material. Cloudy acytal sheet.

    Thanks guys. Here is the photo that leaves me to believe something is missing Does anyone know of a tuning shop in Japan that has a good reputation for working with Legnums? Problem for me as an expat is that I don't have a garage or any tools for working on cars Thanks

    /Welcome Pretty sure I have a selector cover that I was going to template before installing. But I haven't yet. Only been seven or eight years lol :zzz: Don't recall who Dave is on about, but it definitely was not me! The VR-4 looks in amazing condition. Quite possibly the only uncracked original engine cover now in existence :rolleyes4

    I made some of those gear selector covers some time ago. Can't remember what I did with them. I was going to make them for people but someone came up with a cheap place to buy them from so I didn't bother. I can't remember who or where that came from. He might have even put a template up on the forum so you could make your own. Sent from my MI 5s using Tapatalk

    Yep, common issue. It's a flexible plastic cover in two parts iirc and I think it just cracks and falls.

    Thanks Nick, the only cloud to this silver lining is that it seems mad to modify this car at all. Think I will just run it stock and get it as good as it can be. :) Quick question, the gear selector cover seems to be missing from one of the photos I have seen. Is this a common issue? I think I saw a part for sale for 100 quid, seems a little steep. Car should be delivered Oct 4th, then I will give it a good clean and post some more photos. Nice forum by the way, thanks for all your kindness.

    Around 13,000 miles. And the car does look amazingly clean! Optional bbs wheels and warm spec with mmcs from the pictures. Your current Wagon is interesting too! It looks like a good purchase, with mileage that low it will appeal to more people than most. I hope you enjoy your time with it!

    Hi and welcome! Dave has said most of the basics! If you need some help tuning, for the cost of a plane ticket for one of us, we will certainly get you some good gains! ;)

    Thanks Dave, will definitely pay and sign up in the next few days. It's a 97 , auto (deliberate choice for Tokyo heavy traffic where we live now) so assumed it was pre-facelift. I am going to get the mileage certified by the organisation that do it here, because it is ridiculously low, 22000 km to be precise! Hence I am thinking of keeping it as standard as possible. My agent should be taking some good pictures tomorrow , can't wait to see and share them. I have been looking at...

    Hi Everyone Joined the forum today because on an impulse i bought a 97 Legnum VR-4 TYPE S from a Japanese auction with just a translated auction sheet to go by. To be honest it was pretty cheap so was within my risk appetite. :-) Currently I have a family car in Tokyo and only one parking space, so I am considering making this my family car, or shipping it straight to some kind of tuning shop and spend some money 'improving' it. I called up Sigma in Osaka, and they basically told me to...
