I bought this off Kinkersaab of this parish in January 2017...
At the time it had a short ticket and needed some work on the front suspension and a few other bits
It's just gone over 176k now and is MOT'd till Feb 2019 and sorned
It's got a fair old lick of speed, handles really well and will do 40 mpg ... What's not to like?
It did actually pass an MOT last May but the garage that did it after initially failing it ...having done the work they either didn't put it through their 'system' or the DVLA didn't log the MOT pass on their system... Anyhow,it's now got a long ticket!
In my ownership it's had various suspension parts both front and rear, including a pair of KYB front shocks... (Will round up the invoices)
It's also had both exhaust flexi's replaced.
And a new battery.
It's shod with Goodyear Eagles with plenty of tread on the front and Dunlop Sport Maxx on the rear,however the rears will need replacing soon.
Body wise it's not too bad but is a little crusty in places (see photos)... Both of the front wings are crusty along the arches but I do have a really good pair of replacement front wings in the right colour that I haven't got around to fitting,which will come with the car.... Along with a set of front pads as the brake pad warning light is on.
The interior is nice and tidy... It's a very light greyish green leather.
There are a couple of things that don't work ... The Aircon and the rear parking sensors but everything else is operational.
The alloys would definitely benefit from a refurb.... The o/s front one isn't damaged structurally it's the silver finish/lacquer bubbling and lifting.
There's a few dents and scrapes and a bit of lacquer peel on the bootlid.
Some of you with good memories may remember it had an FTP not long after the MOT that never was ... The long and short of it was that it appears to have been that the battery didn't have enough juice because when I fitted a brand new battery it fired up and ran really well ...
There's a long and drawn out saga prior to me fitting the new battery but I really haven't got the will to write it down atm.
The car is located in Henley in Arden.
