Some impressive buys here. I can't quite beat that but here it goes. I bought a clean 04 Punto 1.2 8 Valve with 6 days test for £200 last week. Took it for MOT the next day £35 and it passed without advisories. Bought about £35 of bits to get everything sorted and do a cam belt, aux belt + service. I already have oil so not adding the cost of 2.8 litres 10W-40. For about £270 a tidy car with a years ticket and a new cam belt seems reasonable. Shame I did the belt in too much of a hurry and got the cam a tooth out. Real rubbish timing marks on the FIRE engine. Need to go back and reset that now, thankfully it's a safe engine.
EDIT: Timing fixed, engine perfect since.
