This car has been advertised on here before it belongs Doseur, It was offered to me when I was looking but I bought the TZD off James instead. Another member on here went to look but the car wouldn't start when he went (only flat battery I think) so he walked away. Good mileage.

I think it was me, yes.

I seem to remember there being corrosion at the bottom of the middle pillars (usual place) - not that that should put you off, if it's your thing, but for me it was generally too rough to consider.

If the engine and gearbox are indeed good, it might be okay for parts.

That's how I remember it!

EDIT: Yup that's the one - the corrosion looked as if it had just been sprayed over with a bit of silver paint (last photo in the ebay Ad.)

Good money for a car with no test and needing work. I suspect the diesel/automatic combination has helped it.

It was supposed to have a "like new" engine and box - but I couldn't validate that when I went as the fluffing thing wouldn't start and the bodywork was so manky I just lost interest.

The seller was a member on here (from Brighton maybe) and seemed a very nice chap indeed - I just didn't like his car!
