Fiat Coupe 20VT - Wine Red
1999
107,000 miles
MOT until 7th July 2018
Cat C

Features:
Tan Leather, Alpine CDE-178BT Headunit, A/C but not working, Mini-disc changer in the boot (?!)
Has been fitted with a GTEC1 Chip but will supply the original chip as well.
Milltek Exhaust
Team Dynamics 16" Alloy Wheels
Service History back to 2008, Have MOT Certificates from 2006 onwards
Silver, Red and Blue keys with fobs for alarm/immobiliser

Condition:
Bodywork is mostly good, some paint peel on the driver's side door that is getting worse, as well as
some paint bubbling on the boot lid. Various scratchess / marks as shown in the picures.

Interior centre console has scratches and driver's seat worn in places,
but otherwise in very good condition.



Advisories:
Offside Front Subframe mounting prescribed area is corroded but not considered excessive inner wheel arch
Nearside Rear Radius arm has slight play in a pin/bush
Offside Rear Inner Brake hose has slight corrosion to ferrules
Nearside Rear Inner Brake hose has slight corrosion to ferrules

Known Technical Issues:
When cold starting I've recently needed to give a rev up to about 1,500rpm as
it starts with a low idle, runs perfect afterwards. I think the ICV just needs a clean.
I've noticed sometimes the speedo doesn't work for a mile or two and then kicks back into life,
but the last time I saw this happen it was pretty cold during winter.

Recent work:
Unfortunately I was involved in a collision last year and went into the back of someone, so the car was
deemed a Cat C - had it fully repaired by Solo Italia then MOT'd and fully serviced - passed with no advisories in 2016.
One of the bonnet struts has been replaced with a locking strut, it's had the bonnet replaced, front panel
and fog/indicator light replaced and bumper re-inforcement.

This year it's just had an MOT and full service in July with quite a bit of work done:
New clutch & nearside front coil spring (These were done in May)
Repairs to the fuel cap assembly and seal
Various indicator / number plate bulbs replaced
Number plate light units replaced
Both front track rod ends replaced
offside front lower suspension arm
nearside and offside driveshaft oil seals

Timing / Cambelt & Water pump replaced in April 2015 (receipt from previous owner)

I will include all receipts and documentation of work done. Really don't want to see this go but it's
no longer getting enough use and 've got a boring diesel for commuting now so can't afford both.

Price lowered to £2000 - I'm also replacing the Idle Control Valve to fix the idle from cold starts.

I've replaced the Idle control valve but still has the cold start idling issue and suspect it could be the lambda sensor / fuse but I'm not sure. After about a minute it's fine but idles very roughly from a cold start.

I'm lowering the price to £1,750 but will consider offers also.
