The only reason this car is still for sale it is over priced. It is worth 10K anyday and not 15K. I've said earlier these cars have true Mini DNA and are so much fun to drive. :D :D :D

He clearly never uses any of his cars... Ive never seen any of them about, and I'm in Halifax!

That turbo is so nice! I always regret not buying two turbos, a mk1 project and a mk2 complete runner for £2k about 3 years ago... Oh how I'd be laughing now...

I had a MK1 Turbo back in the 1980s. Loved it, drove it to the full and spent all my money in Minispares at Frien Barnet repairing it!! So wish I had it now.

The Turbo was only ever any good with the gearbox beefed up (old A Series 3rd m/shaft bearing) and the boost wound up a tad to give 110-120 bhp. Really, a 205GTI would run rings around it.
I found the standard MG a better bet, and a 40 bhp 998 Metro a very entertaining flat out cross country drive. :D They were so much nicer than the Fiesta 1/2.
