    Been looking for 2 weeks now and no joy. :(

    If anybody sees a 1.8TQS for under 3k, let me know. Can anybody recommend a good place to look? I try eBay, Autotrader, Gumtree, Friday Ad, Pistonheads... Nothing good ever comes up. :(

    Getting car sick now. A different kind of car sick. :p

    Does this sound like a good deal...

    - 1.8TQS
    - '99 V-reg
    - 82k miles
    - FASH
    - 12 months MOT
    - 3 months tax
    - Cambelt done at 79k
    - Refurbished wheels
    - Stainless exhaust

    All for £2,500. A little more than I wanted to pay but it looks very good on paper. No history regarding control arms though. Are these a problem on the 1.8TQS or facelifts in general or did they fix them on the later cars?
