Good points:
- 1.6 petrol with only 75k (125km) ish
- Drives very well
- New oil, filters and LHM fluid this month
- New front tyres
- New starter motor
- New handbrake/brake lines/driveshafts
- Suspension works perfectly
- No rot ANYWHERE
- Tow bar
- Boot struts actually work

Bad points:
- Passenger side window motor disconnected as window was stuck down
- Radio is temperamental
- It has a carb from the 1.9 (I believe) so is overfuelling a little. it still runs well and gets around 30mpg and so I've left it as is
- it's not UK registered, but NOVA is in place

I had all the above work carried out (and more) in preparation for it's MOT but life keeps getting in the way and I'll probably never get around to it so it's sold as is. All the french paperwork is present and several French invoices (I can translate if necessary). Any inspection is more than welcome. Postcode is BA5 3ER and delivery is potentially available depending on location. I'm after £800 and not interested in any offers.

Thanks.

Looks nice and sorry if this is pissing on your parade but if it is overfuelling could it ever pass an emissions test at idle?

As far as I’m aware it’s JUST within the parameters. I plan on MOTing and registering it later this month prior to listing on eBay so we’ll see :)
