Buying an EP3 this week but not sure how much its worth.

Its advertised as a Jap import, 78k, premier edition seats etc in Nighthawk black. Pretty much completely standard except the ITG induction kit.

Looking around I can only see the JDM model which comes in championship white, so not sure whats going on. Has this come from Japan?

I have HPI checked the vehicle and its definitely imported back in 2009 but doesnt confirm details of where its come from...

Any help/valuation much appreciated.

Thanks

Imports normally demand more money due to having a differential and being in better condition underneath (less / no rust)

Questions I would be asking is;

Who imported the car?
Was the car undersealed on arrival?
If it was purchased at auction what grade was it?
Does it have a differential?

Condition dependent probably looking at between 5 - 7k for a private sale, dealer 7 - 9k
