Purchased an EP3 this week, cant wait to collect it.

I'm told its a jap import and HPI check confirms its imported but doesnt specify where from...

Its 2005 plate, registered 2009 in the UK in nighthawk black and has the premier edition interior. The only jap versions i can see online are in championship white.

Is there a way of checking where its been imported from without the import docs?

Also if you could advise of any points to look out for that would be great, im guessing a clutch will soon be due plus want the timing chain sorting to make sure its in optimum condition. How much am i looking at?

Thanks

Josh
