Clue me up on the standard 13b Cosmo
« on: February 06, 2008, 03:55:02 PM »
Hello buddys, possibly in the market for a Cosmo, just because they\'re ****ing cool :D

13b, not the 20b type!
Just standard sport interior, no need for leather etc...

What would I be looking to pay for one?

Cheers,

Seth.

Why 13b and not the 20b?

As for value, I doubt I\'d sell mine for 10k.

I love it and I don\'t think I\'d find another that has the same colour scheme interior spec etc.

As for specs, you\'ll find all you wnat to know here.

13b because it\'ll just be a sideline project
no speed involved, that\'s what my rex is for :)

Haha!... i mean oh dear! make sure that doesn\'t happen to mine! :Giggle

Single turbo i will consider meticulously but am having difficulty keeping faith in my rex\'s intelligence. I keep telling it "Rexy, u do have another bigger turbo in that twin pack of yours ...if you\'d just take a look beyond that ickle one... please?!" sadly she doesn\'t comprehend :Hammer

perhaps a single turbo would confuse the poor things anatomy entirely & induce her to simply break down and cry out of her windscreen washers? :Giggle

hopefully the new stuff will help her along, i\'ve a lot of faith in the apexi ecu and moreover, a lot of faith in u Tim!! got all the bits bar the rad, as soon as it\'s here i\'m coming down!!

The cosmo is no sports car, you can\'t compare it to the rx7.  IMHO the autobox suits its cruiser nature perfectly (in the 20b anyway).

Hi Seth, if your still interested in one of these you could have mine for less as my MND has progressed and I don\'t think I\'ll ever drive again. Call me if you are interested on 07810 078307, regards Mike.
