Misery arsed as you like, no power steering etc. Runs ok if you don't boot it, but trying to give it too much in top makes the EML come on and it bogs down a bit. Still, for only just over three figures it's not too bad. Just need a bio-hazard suit on now so I can clean the outside.

I've seen cars that were parked under a tree, was this one parked under a canal?

Spectaculuarly grim! Another fine purchase for sure. Has someone cleaned the dashboard with toothpaste?

 

I had one of these 973cc jobbies a few years back now. It really didn't like going over 60 and did about 20 to the gallon. I suspect it was fucked.

Welcome to the Club. Decent wee steeds, as you know I got 5 years faultless service from mine. Re bogging down and EML illuminating intermittently. Likely your egr valve or MAF Billy. Fit a gen used one if you're going to go that far, cheap ones will stick open and kill the engine, ask me how I know......
