    If you paid 2k for it then I'd insist on a full new exhaust because they certainly made some cash on it.

    yeah i spose we got robbed a bit maybe, but the 206 we traded in needed lots of work done to it! for example, new front wish bone £60, engine rebuild atleast £400, new breath pipe £10, new rear suspension arm godknows how much new ABS sensor £100, and these are the things that we know of! so wasnt toooooo bad.

    have found somewhere that will replace the part for £60 fitted, i thought seats were more expencive! but not complaining. they said they will front half the bill and cba with any hassle!
    think this is a good deal?

    £60 fitted isn't a bad price. I wouldn't be paying for it though if I'd only just got the car, I'd be forcing the garage to sort it for free.

    Yea I do as a rtack day car, the 16v is/was quicler through the corners, but the 20vt was just that step ahead on the straights.
    Lovely car to drive but loved gearboxes and after the timing belt went then the tappets, it was time to fix and trade in, I moved onto a brand new Cupra (back on 04) and loved it too bar the wet rear footwell widely known issue. It did the odd quarter mile and burst against supposedly faster cars but traded her in last year against a 4.6 v8 X5 for the missus. In the meantime I drove a newshape 170bhp VRS octavia TDI and changed jobs back in November so it went with the job.
    Bought this back in November

    And over the last fortnight gathered some parts and did this to it......

    A gent to the end pete!
    Strange that it didnt flare up on the run down to the hotel though or earlier in the day. I have to say that the blowout on the S's at the top of the track were more unsettling as I'd been tustling with the mk2 for quite a few laps then flooring it round onto the back straight their passenger pointed to my driverside front wheel as I hadnt noticed straight off as the weight of the car was on the left hand side.
    Good Times!

    Hey, I'm curious if anyone knows any websites i would be able to find cordy body kits, coz my one's standard kit is stuffed, and i thought, why bother buying a new standard, when i could get a not-too-bad kit for it, so any websites that ship to Aus?
