E Bay item number:182893483226

what does this mean: previous owner had replaced the original engine with a mildly tuned 1275cc – DVLA approved - with twin 1.5 SU’s and a close ratio gearbox.

Is he having a laugh?

I suggest you ask him. My guess is that DVLA have 'approved' it by altering the V5.
I doubt it can have anything to do with the forthcoming regulations. Or does it?

Good grief, did he buy a 'works' dymo labeller as well?

There is even a dymo label on the indicator stalk....

Unglaublich...

Not quite as daft as it sounds. Autonymous MINIS are around the corner.

Location: Oop North where it's dark & cold nearly all the time.
There are aspects of that car i quite like & other aspects of it that are hideous.

I do love the florid over description though. This is something you only really see on ebay where people use 10 words when a couple will do. As if the number of redundant words in the description make the car more valuable.
