The car was up Joes at CC a few weeks ago, when I picked my car up - looked very nice.

Agh sorry everyone! I put the post up at work but they've banned the site now because I've been using it too much. I've been without internet for a while and I'm on someone elses connection. doesn't work for some reason. The main issue people rightly focused on is the pressure gadge. Rog from Power italia had a look and thought it was faulty. I'd like to get it replaced for peoples peace of mind first please bear with me while i sort it out . I need to get some money for it then I'll give joe a ring about a replacement as soon as possible. I'm rather poor at the moment doing the extra miles in the fiat I hadn't planned on.




Internet should be fixed on Wednesday

WOW we appear to have had one heck of a storm in this tea cup rolleyes

It really isn't nice to see people jumping to, negative, conclusions just because someone fails to respond to PMs and posts. The seller had not caused anyone to be out of pocket and, as we can now see, there was / is a perfectly good reason why the seller has not been responding on the forum.

It looks to me like this seller is trying to be honest about the car in the advert and help people decide if the car is worth them going to see.

If we continue to beat up sellers when they are trying to be open about cars, then all I can see are far less honest adverts and far more wasted journeys to see cars that are not at all what they are being made out to be!

FYI......Alistair and I have been exchanging messages regarding this coop since he got back on line and he has told me he took no offence and understands that my comments were not meant to be negative in anyway.......luckily not everyone takes everything so seriously on the forum.

Oh no here we go again laugh

There are many reasons why buyers don't buy a car they go to view....

Perhaps they were hoping to get the car much cheaper?
Perhaps the buyer didn't like the the colour, or the seats smile?
Perhaps the buyer was wasting the sellers time?

Or perhaps we don't need to know, Spit why are you so interested in this car and sale, you don't appear to want it yourself, why all the interest?!

just nosey....no other reason really....well.......
I also don't want him to buy a donkey.....not saying this is one but I have purchased one or 2 (not coops thank god) in my time hence the scepticism.

I'm going ring him in the morning and find out if it sold, but I'm sure it hasn't otherwise he would have told me. The person potentially viewing today was not a definite apparently, so if its still available, its probably because he chose not to view.

After all the chat about this car, the detailed ad, my pm's with alistair and the fact that Rog fitted the engine I am pretty sure this car is a good one. I'm actually looking forward to the 2.5 hour drive to go see it (Looking forward to the drive back even more smile ).

I will be taking the buyers guide with me to make sure I dont make any mistakes....its always a bit nerve racking fro someone like me who hasn't got the mechanically knowledge of some of the forums users.

Spoke to Flea today.....providing I buy it, it will be at Solo early next week for front disks and pads, suspension check out, full service and Oil pressure gauge fact finding mission, then down to Flea for an EBC, re-map and RR session, so all going well it will be perfect for Auto Italia (Apart from the couple of small issues with the bodywork)

cause I'm only going be running around 280bhp, Flea reckons the Gizzmo will be perfect so I'm not going argue with that.

I think there is a chance KTM is going to see this today which means it may be gone tomorrow which is the earliest I can get to it frown

dude i feel bad about all this i did want to buy but i wouldnt without seeing it, so you go tomorrow and see if its the one for you but take into account it will need a spend...i spoke today and was tempted to buy over the phone but not a good idea.. good luck and don't go with high expectations it has its little issues go expecting to have jobs to do and money to spend or you will be disapointed..the rare oppertunities that arise to buy a low miles very tidy example with all major jobs done will be few and far between and you will need a big budget to secure one..this way see it as an ongoing project and just do all the jobs one at a time and eventually you will have what you wanted

you dont have to feel bad....your just as entitled as I am to buy it....my sad face was just because I thought it might sell before I had a chance to go see it.

I have printed off the buyers guides and check lists and have already factored into my budget a trip to Solo for brakes, service and power steering pump etc then a trip to flea for an EBC and remap.

If something pops up during my inspection that suggests I should walk away...I will
