Re: Your opinion about this car

Car looks ok but I'd want a guarantee on the work done.
Didn't see the price because I'm using my phone And sometimes pages take ages to load

Re: Your opinion about this car

personaly i'd walk, sounds like a self build and i wouldn't trust it myself, plenty of them around for that sort of money. for a type r i'd consider upping your budget a bit, well worth spendign a bit extra for a decent car

Re: Your opinion about this car

I'll have another look when I'm in the office, I'm on the train at the moment.
Didn't see that it was a home build, assumed it was a garage which is why I said a bout the work being guaranteed

Re: Your opinion about this car

Thank you for the reply

Have you anything else to suggest? I do not mind going a bit higher in the money, but I would prefer one from a private seller. Because many of the shops clock them or import them damaged. Their price is also much higher than the private.

I spoke with this lad http://pistonheads.co.uk/sales/2276149.htm and it seems ok, I check it on the net and it is HPi clear. What is your opinion?

Re: Your opinion about this car

It all comes down to the quality of the work. If you're going to have a look at it and test drive then take someone with you who knows these engines well and check everything.
At the end of the day mate it's your call, hope it all works out well for you though.

Re: Your opinion about this car

From the spec's that he wrote it seems like he has put quality things in there.

If I send AA car inspection do you think that could check it in depth and tell me if it is good?
