Brilliant advice from my Forum colleagues. Yes, based on current market prices for these cars, it’s on for too much, I’m afraid. As an NA owner myself I would have been pretty pleased if that price was realistic, but sadly not.
Dec '91 car, makes sense. It’s a Mk1, and has those very alluring pop-up headlamps. Stated power is way above the factory figure of 225hp though, despite the upgraded exhaust system. The car looks great in the ad, and the recorded mileage seems to tally nicely with the MOTs going back to 2007. Interesting it’s currently SORN’d, and last MOT was August '19.
Nothing overly major on any of the MOT failures, mainly things like track rod end boot covers, rack gaitors etc, plus the exhaust system came up on quite a few occasions. One year gap in 2014, and yet two MOTs in 2015, one in Feb and the other in Sept for some reason.
It looks a good car, but if you were seriously interested in it Craig, I’d put an offer in once I’d taken a test drive and checked the auto box thoroughly. Beauty’s in the eye of the beholder of course. It is a looker, no doubt about that, but that Bexhill garage are expecting way too much for it.
Good luck with your decision fella,
