    That's lovely. Could be a fly drive, it's not far from Heathrow. I passed my driving test in a princess and love them. And have a space now the rover has gone.

    Nothing better than a red car that is properly red with the black bits properly black. Lovely.

    I had in my possession a 56 plate merc a160cdi auto with a knackered gearbox but still 6 months MOT. It was worth basically scrap money, which here is only about £100 to £120. It was still driving but making noises and dropping into limp home mode with transmission fault visit workshop displayed on the dash. It was ok for about 5 minutes when started before it went limp home. I saw an advert on Faceache for Arnold Clark saying they would buy any car, email for a quote then use +500 and you get £500 added to the price. I filled in the form, being honest about it dropping into limp home and the message on the dash. The quote came back, £50 for the car plus the £500. Please make appointment at a local branch. So this I did, at a branch that I had had problems with in the past and the manager threw me out. So today I went there, it was the managers day off, pity, and a salesman did an appraisal of the car, said its £100. I quoted the +500 again and got £600 for a £100 scrapper! I have no scruples taking £500 off Arnie shark, I reckon they cost me more than that at the last time I dealt with that branch. Just a pity the manager wasnt there to see it

    I have had 3 x 205s. The first was a basic 1100 5 door. It was a rusty end of life heap, bought for £100, with a few months mot, I got it welded and through an mot, ran it for a while then sold it for £250. It was a fun car to drive, lovely handling, but not the best roadholding on narrow 145 section tyres so immense fun at low speeds. I do not have pics of it.

    Then the son and I bought the 1.6gti. This is the one that went for welding then was lost for years and found a month ago. First 2 pics of it is from the ad we bought it from, next 2 pics are of as it sits at the moment, I havent managed to find a man to weld it up.

    I then bought a 1.6 auto. It was absolutely unmarked, one owner with full itemised service history and only 33000 miles on it. It was a lovely car, I kept it about a year and a half, I dont know why I sold it, just got bored I suppose. It is getting stripped and rebuilt as a 2.0 civic type r rally car by it's current owner. My son in law also has a 205gti which is getting the civic type r rally treatment.

    The 1.1 5door was actually the most fun, and if I ever buy another it is liable to be a 1.8td. However it is very unlikely to happen, they are too small and low for me getting in and out. I will be content with a very occasional go in the gti if it ever gets sorted up.

    It was only going to be scrapped for £120. The guy at arnold Clark did take a quick spin in it, but it was always ok for about 5 minutes after starting it when it had sat an hour or so. Theres a retail park right across the road from the branch so I had a look around it for a while before crossing the road. Plus I had admitted that the eml was on intermittently. This seems like a great way to get rid of basically scrappers that are still road legal

    Although the getting more than it was worth from Arnie was good, the best bit about this was the not having to put up with the hassle of selling a car with a borked gearbox for a few hundred quid. I got my money back from the car I bought to do my work with which turned out to be a bucket of shit. It's a lucky escape for me, leaving with my fingertips intact.

    I only bought the merc 6 weeks ago for £600 then the gearbox started playing up two weeks ago. I was surprised they did it to be honest lol

    That will probably be the young salesman getting a kick on the arse when the manager next sees him!
