No idea about the car itself, but it's been up for sale for quite a while. The pics are very old, I think there's info or a timestamp on them that shows they are 6 or 7 years old and no info about what it's actually like apart from that it's off road and needs an mot.

Worth a look but go in eyes wide open. Could be worth the 4k or just 1.5k.

Hi Kenny, it’s going to be a long journey tracking down a decent Coop. Even then be prepared for disappointment, I’ve read so many times over the years on here how some potential Coopsters were let down when viewing the vehicle in the flesh. Some have travelled far as well many miles to look at Coops. Keep looking phone


I'm an old git & happy with it,most of the time

I doubt that car even exists - the advert seems quite spammy especially all the pics of random parts. I was looking for one for about 6 months before I found mine, the ad went up in the for sale section on this forum and I was round there like a rat out of a trap.

And those points lead to my next boggle....... do I sacrifice colour preference for getting a good solid one . I.E never been a fan of an Inky or Green but if it's the better car . Just as the comments above choices are few and far between ??? confused

No. You will only end up regretting not getting the colour you actually wanted.

Re this car. I have seen this advert multiple times. I think Fiat themselves described that shade of blue as "THE" colour for a coupe to be in. So totally understand why eyes would be dawn to it.

Possibly the car is the most perfect example of a coupe you could find. Ever.

But your looking at an advert, with pictures of how the car was, with a seller it seems is not responding to you. Saying the car is sorn and needs wielding and other things to pass an mot. And not willing to show you the car as it is now.

So possibly its a car, with high mileage and in a very poor condition. With no reg-so you can't check the history.

You pays your money and you takes your choice.

I'm not trying to queer the sellers stall in any way. I'd at the very least be eyes wide open on this.

If it looks to good to be true- it always is. I ended up with an ex-wife due to the same reasons. so trust me!

Regards

MM

Thanks MM on both posts .

Thinking I’m set on a 20VT - 6 , Plus or LE.

I’ve had a blue, light red and moon grey, not a fan of yellow or Scott’s green - I seem to have gone of Vinci (10yrs ago I would have bit your arm off) Not sure in inkies but seem to be a few for sale

So admittedly I’m limiting myself further more !

I’m thinking best bet is just to stock Joe and FCSS and see what pops up for sale!
