UK car so no LSD fitted! Also no Power Steering or Electric Windows - I've seen this as a positive as it's less to go wrong!

Things to be aware of:

The front brake pipes (braided) will need to be replaced sometime as these have gone hard and are rubbing on the wheel under full lock (MOT Advisory last year)

The car would benefit from a rolling road tune, it runs fine when hot, although the idle speed is quite high. From cold it takes a few turns to start – normal with an MS ECU

The online MOT history shows a mileage discrepancy in 2006, this was well before my ownership and I have no information on this. The current mileage is around 99,000 miles. 

The front splitter is an aftermarket fibreglass one and has quite a few splits from grounding on our drive. I have a rubber splitter which can be purchased at additional cost (£60) with the car.

Rear Carbon effect wheel arches had to be removed when the sills were done, the front ones are glued on and I didn’t want to risk damage to the car when removing them. 

Why am I selling?

This has been a fantastic, fun car to own but I’ve decided to do more touring and need something a bit more comfortable so I’ve gone for a MK2. This car has had over £4,500 of work and parts since I’ve owned it and is a fantastic base to work from. 

I am looking for £3,600 ono
