I would recommend viewing before you bid, but even then of course you may not win anyway.

Finally found the Babe on Preloved.co.uk. Ended up paying a bit more than I originally intended but in retrospect a good decision as I haven't had to spend much at all - just sorted out a few niggles. Bodywork rust free. Good Luck!



Hi

I totally forgot pre loved. I will keep looking and oh yes you are right.

I would not dream of bidding on a car. Most of them go off before the auction or as a classified in a flash if decent but everything I was looking at was found on ebay and would of been a private sale. The last green one i saw was a classified for 3.5k and if he was genuine sounded very clean. Less than 24 hours it sold local.

I dont actually think its possible to find a good buy on ebay via auction. If its worth 2k a idiot will pay 2500, lesson learned 2 years later into finishing off our jeep from ebay the last time haha.

Its nice to hear another success story though, keeps the hope burning

There was a genuine seeming green 20vt came on ebay recently but he had someone local interested immediately sadly. I had second refusal and never heard back so it went im guessing

And i have mocked a few friends over the years for getting nose bleeds if they drive past Nottingham laugh

Two options, buy a complete new mount, or install a polybush into the old steel casing, cheaper and probably quicker as a new mount will have to come up from Italy.

Thanks for all the replies to this thread.

Update is:
All the work stated above has been carried out.
Cam belt / water pump /tensioners etc .
New clutch
New radiator .

In addition as a "while your in there" We also changed one of the brake pipes( the other looked nearly new) so thanks Neil that would almost certainly have been missed.
All hoses were checked and new clips fitted. The hose of death was new and interestingly there was water staining on the back lower part of the engine block. So maybe it had previously gone caput.
There was no evidence of any oil leaks and apart from the water stains it was as clean as a whistle in there.
I got a good look and took photos of the car with the engine out. Alas I did not get to clean the engine bay while it was out I just didn't have the time.

I got the car back Friday and put 70 odd miles on it at the weekend. It ran sweet as a nut with the temperature 70-90 and fan now working so no cooling issue anymore. there was however a " SQUEAK" and a very annoying squeak at that.

I tried hard to find out where it was coming from always over bumps not engine, not steering but not suspension when bounced on the corners. So back it went. It turns out its the lower off side engine mount the rubber is worn. My man could not get a replacement part so I am once again appealing to my new Coupe loving friends for any info/advice on how to obtain this part. It has been " bunged" up with something for now and the squeak has gone so I know he has found the problem.
We have left the undertray off till I can find the part for him to fit.

The Fiat part number he has given me is 7744049 and he said we only need the bush not the whole thing. I also have a photo of the offending item.

Thanks all,
Nipper

The MINI saga has moved in the right direction in that the seller (independent dealership) has agreed to replace the car with something similar.

The problem is that there is a real shortage of secondhand cars being traded right now so it’s hard to find something and the prices are high for what few cars there are.

How about a Mk 5 Golf Gti?

Though might be too similar to your Leon.

Failing that a nice Saab.

Or.... Something fun like a Mini Cooper S....

I've had countless issues with them over the years, poor quality welding with zero penetration to the turbo flange, mismatch holes on the manifold to head studs, number one branch fouling on the alloy water rail...... they're great as a door stop however smile

Not a fan then Joe? Now you mention it, it does look like a bowl of noodles, albeit an expensive one!

Both can be had for low money and with decent engines plus all the bells and whistles.


My first thought was the Mazda6 MPS. I liked the look of these when they were released and it seems a decent enough car for sensible money now. Reliability isn't great though but you'd have change out of 5k for that.
