Hi guys. A couple of months ago I bought my first 145, a 1998 2.0 Twinspark which had been imported from Japan and has been converted to a race-dedicated car, although I'm currently trying to discover whether it is possible to access its de-registration papers in Japan, which would mean I'd have the possibility of registering it for the road with an Authority Card (I think). Before you ask, its running in the standard 'Trofeo' class of the Trofeo Race Series here in NZ, so it has barely been modified from standard, other than suspension. I'm a novice race driver, but I've already been out a couple of times for practices (one dry, one wet) and had a huge amount of fun already.

I did have a silly question though regarding the keys. I have one brown and one red. Is the brown one the Master Key, or the red one? I'm asking because I've read somewhere that the brown one is the master, except I really didn't think it looked like a master key and I don't have a manual for it.
Cheers
Anthony

Hello Anthony, nice 145 you've got there worshippy.gif . I'm digging these decals, I bet it's a rather nice car to race in.

Yes, the brown square one is the master key, I wouldn't use it as you may accidentally start the reprogramming procedure if you leave it in, and run into immobilizer issues that are no fun.

Great, thanks for that. I must remember to use the red key from now.

What seats, harnesses and roll cage have you got - is it a half roll cage? love the door transfer, really works well on the blue.
