The car is in very good condition. The previous owner spent a great deal of money on the bodywork and interior. Its had new rear arches and lower rear windscreen to boot panel which is a common rust area. It was then fully resprayed.

There are many reciepts from 96 onwards (it also had a new chain in that year) including a lot of recent work. The interior has been fully re-trimmed in the correct 'mushroom' leather.
The car was fitted with manual mirrors but the correct electric ones are included. The sunroof trim panel needs refitting and the passenger seatbelt butler doesn't work. I have just put a fresh MOT on the car.

However to look at the car and to drive it too, you would happily suggest about 16.
