From memory, on older Matiz it should be an 10 pins OBD 1 like this:

Ah, ok. Well, it will be a lot easier to see what it has once I have the car in my possession again. I've not seen it since mid-September. Ridiculous.

I think it might be an import. Steering wheel is different to all the examples I've seen.

 

Plus, its badged as an SE and has steel wheels, but has the boot spoiler of the SE Plus and air conditioning. Radio blanking plate is interesting, too.

Weirdly it doesn’t show up on totalcarcheck. According to the DVLA it’s tax was last due in 2006 and it’s only had 2 MOT’s, one in December and one in 2010. Strange little critter!

It is an odd one. It's very late for a pre-facelift, which makes me wonder if it's a European-built one.

 

Anyway, this happened.

New lower arms, new ARB bushes, new track rod end rubbers, new discs, new pads and one more CV joint and she's driving much more nicely, and actually stopping!

 

Briefly visited the Dean/Angyl BX swap, but there were no dramas and I managed to take no pictures (though I did get some video). 

 

Drove home. It got dark.

First time I've actually had all of my vehicles at home since I bought the Matiz in July! Also hit 90,000 miles on the way back, which means I'm going to have to keep it until at least 100,012 miles (it had 12 on the clock when I bought it 20 years ago). Can I hit that figure before August, which is when I took delivery in 1999? (probably not).

Btw, if you're passing Bristol at any time you're welcome to borrow my Tech 2 if you want to give it a go.

Brilliant. Given me a right hankering for another Matiz.

 

Think my old one has sadly departed now, might email CM to see if they know what happened to it out of interest....

In late 1999, I finished my office job in Shirley, Solihull, jumped in my Matiz, collected some friends and hot-footed it down to Brixton Academy. We went to see Nine Inch Nails, where I purchased this T-shirt. We then drove back to Birmingham. T-shirt and car have aged remarkably well. Owner, not so much perhaps...
