    it came with 17" wolfrace voodoos which im going to refurb and use as winter wheels as i quite like them

    swapped all top arms, offside hub (threads for wheel bolts where knackered) rear discs and pads with bearings and 16" sport alloys and bolts from the avant im breaking while i swapped suspension

    also spent 2 days cleaning it, seats out and vax'd carpets + machine polished bodywork, its getting there

    think owner was retarded, driving it to the mot station he could of lost his license at 3 points a tyre

    when it came with leather interior from a later model, performance back box, bailey dump valve, k+n, koni coilovers 17" alloys etc youd think it would be a bit better looked after

    you need the registration number, and some kinda reference from the v5, so basically you need to own the car.

    But if you have the docs, you can view all its previous MOT's, and see what its failed on or being given advisories on, since the computerisation thing happened.

    I have a German plate on the front of mine and the last 2 MOT's a standard plate has been stuck over the top of the German one with 2 thin slivers of double sided tape. Just after the MOT it falls off and goes back in the boot until the next MOT. lol
