  1. 12 Months MOT - £1850 https://m.facebook.com/marketplace/item/353974242509886
  2. Agree with everyone else - the red looks good! is that some tape on the metro headlights too?
  3. Has anyone on here owned one of these? They seem like they could potentially be a-grade shite. £1650 makes this one of the cheaper MOT’d runners that I’ve seen https://m.facebook.com/marketplace/item/754247051974055
  4. Considering it was filmed in 2003 when they were worth sweet FA, I was surprised to see that the 2CV from Dead Man’s shoes is still about. On SORN, but still with a valid MOT
  5. The best* car in the Gran Turismo games - no price, so I suspect the seller is wanting £megabucks (EDIT - nevermind, looks like a price has been added - £1995) https://m.facebook.com/marketplace/item/1511427742401425
  6. Similar story with MX5s. I was speaking to a guy who breaks them today who said that the ones from some 1.8 cars are worth £500+! As the avensis is also a Japanese car from the same era, with a similarly sized engine, it may be a similar story. Could be worth checking, as if that’s case, it might not be such a bad price, and it could potentially last another 260,000 miles
  7. Bubble 200 for £355. Not a colour I’ve seen one in before, and being a 1996 must make it one of the very earliest. Hopefully this goes to a good home https://m.facebook.com/marketplace/item/333797661057847
  8. I saw those today too! There were still plenty of cars sat in the middle lane when they didn’t need to be, but it seemed to be doing something. I’m sort of surprised that it’s not something I’ve seen before now
  9. The mini plates have now arrived and been fitted! I’ve got to say, they look amazing and they’re a massive improvement over the cracked and faded old pair. £40 for the pair designed, printed and delivered seems very reasonable to me considering the effort required to make them. I’m considering getting a second set for the MX5 now.
  10. I can’t explain why, but I really, really like these, and have done since they were new. I test drove an Arosa a few years back and for it’s size and what they cost new, I was very impressed with how nice it felt (it stank of cigarettes and the gearbox sounded like it was about to pop, so I didn’t buy it, but I’ve still wanted one) Considering that they stopped making them 15 years ago, the number that are still on the road is a testament to how well made they are. I believe they galvanised the bodies as well, so they hold up quite well against rust. £280 sounds like a pretty good price t
  11. I suspect so. I’ve already had a quote from a garage a friend works at, who’ve done a little welding on it recently. It was a lot, but considering the amount of work they were expecting to do, it certainly wasn’t unreasonable. (Door skins and steps, windscreen scuttle, a panels, wings and a respray of everything but the roof for £2500. There may have been some other little bits included in that as well). There was work done to the sills and around the subframe not long before I bought the car, so other than a small hole which I took care of a few weeks back, that’s still mostly okay.
  12. Thank you! I’m away from the car at the moment, but next time I’m near it I’ll give everything a check. My goal is to have the majority of the rot taken care of before the next MOT. In an ideal world, I’d teach myself to weld and do as much of the work as I could myself, but I’m quite busy in general at the moment, so I don’t know if I’d have the time to get it done to a standard I was happy with. Prices seem to have gone up a lot recently, so I’m in the fortunate position where even if I were to throw loads of money at it, it may still be worth more than I’ve spent (not tha
  13. Just spotted this posted on Facebook. They look absolutely spectacular! I can’t wait for them to arrive, and they should look miles better than the tatty cracked plates that are on there at the moment (sad, I know, but sometimes it’s the little things)
  14. Thank you! You got your plates so I’m sure he’s genuine, I’ll send a message and see if I get anywhere. I sent the payment as goods and services, so worst case I can at least try to get my money back. I know it doesn’t sound a fortune, but £40 is a lot for me to just lose at the moment
  15. @Mr_Bo11ox how long did it take for your plates to arrive? I ordered a set from the same guy on the 25th, but I haven’t heard from him at all since sending the payment over. I know these sorts of things take a long time, and I really don’t want to come across as an impatient dick, but I’m starting to wonder what’s happening with them. Also, any turtle/horsebollox updates?
