since I'm a - silent- member of this board for quite some time, I feel the need to become more active in the PT community. Thanks to all members who contribute to the forum. It saved me a lot of trouble and money fixing things.

My name is Nico, age 35 from Germany. I purchased my blue 2004 GT in early 2017. Currently it has roughly 92500 mi (149000 km) on the odometer.

The PT is stock, however, an LPG injection system has been added by the previous owner back in 2006.

Features:
GT package | 2.4l Turbo HO | 5 Speed manual | blue exerior | black leather interiour | power sunroof, windows, locks | alarm | summer: 17" alloy wheels | winter: 16" alloy wheels | tinted rear windows | RB3 satnav

Added:
LPG | trailer hitch (detachable) | Mopar parking sensors (strange functionality, lol) | backup-camera

Repairs/maintenance:
timing belt + accessories | new battery | camshaft position sensor | new engine and cabin air filters | oilpan and rear crankshaft seal (to transmission) | valve cover gaskets | oil, filter and coolant | some welding to the driver side rocker end | passenger side drive-shaft/cv-axle (killed when center mount screw sheared off) | new tires | pcv valve

To-Dos:
emergency brake | rust treatment rear wheel wells | ignition parts (ignition coil, lines, spark plugs) | add MP3 functionality to RB3 | whatever breaks next, lol...

Nice car, drives well - which compensates for reliability issues... Unfortunately some spare parts are not easy to get and thus quite expensive :/

So, hi to all
Hi, can you find me good diesel PT and ship it ?

It would be cool to see an export PT in the US, they have some great standard features

Here is the Build Sheet from a member that lives in Sweden

Sure, but I guess it will be useless if I fit it into a standard cardbord box

Anything significantly different? Apart from things like speedometer and lights?

@808PTcruiser

Just give it another couple of months. Guess there will be lots of older Diesels to be exported from Europe...

Run mine as a daily - work & back about 60Km plus weekends tra-la-la - we're on about 1,22 - 1,25 Euro a litre around here and I tank up zirca 50 ltrs every 2 weeks.
If I could be arsed to drive 100Km I'd likely get it much cheaper in Luxembourg but lifes too short.

The Diesel is well worth it fuel wise - I had a 2.0ltr PT before and it wouldn't pass a fuel pump without stopping.
Plus it's a Merc lump, pretty much what all the taxi's run. 280,000 Km and counting...
