funny it should come back up. im happy to say thanks to stu-woac and the help from his mate to fit the engine. well worth the money despite what everyone said. sadly i might be moving on to other things as i need an everyday driver that is cheaper to run and insure.

 

will be a sad day to see it go and im tempted to store the car till i can afford to use both new car and the 205.

 

would recommend the convertion if anyone is looking into this still

I never trust this, it just means the car your going to look at has had a grand added on to the price before you get there. :)

i know this is normally the case with a few places so im going to check it out. from what ive seen and read of the car it seems like its the right price for what it has

 

even parkers say that its bang on book price before the part ex. so just gona check it out and have a proper look before commiting to anything
