As a few of you may know i have just bough a phase 1 No 158. Did i pay over the odds for this car?
The main let down on the car is the body work:
Front end full of stone chips
Pretty bad rust o/s cill
rear arches starting to bubble
bottoms of both doors bubbling
Also:
Needs new tyres
front fogs all coroded
needs origional parcell shelf

I payed £3100 For the car, What do you think? :?: :?:

its got 105 k, and there is a full ren history, only stamps in the book but the millage on the stamps matches the mot certificates ive got.
its a 1 owner car +1, but the +1 could'nt afford it and only kept it 4 months.

Really depends on the condition. You payed it so you obviously think its worth it. As long as you are happy who cares about anyone else?

As above really.

Your the one who has to drive it and pay out on it, so as long as your happy thats all that matters.

Cheap things to make it look better.

1. Clean and polish and wax it.
2. Get two new fog lights (£40)
3. Take glasses off :wink:
