Coupé for sale:

Scotts green 20VT, 1999 OIEO £4500

My project thread is HERE

Engine and model: 2.0 20v turbo.
Mileage: 98,850 miles. (at the time of writing)
Body colour: Scotts Green.
Interior colour and material: Biscuit tan, Climate control a/c & sunroof model.
Registered 1999.
Number of previous owners: 9 former owners.
MOT: passed 3rd Aug 2022 (full details here - https://www.check-mot.service.gov.uk/)

Known technical issues:
Exhaust manifold blows when cold (seals when hot, so hairline crack),
Aluminium Radiator included with sales, current one is old and showing signs of age (coolant weep) & you have to remove the radiator to change the exhaust manifold anyway so may as well replace at the same time
A/C needs its air condition pressure switch replaced- new part included with sale but not fitted
Fuel sender is intermittent (common issue)
Sunroof needs its nylon gearcog changed (doesnt operate & you can hear it grating) - about £20 on ebay.
I've also got a new Sunroof seal that I was going to fit when I did the sunroof motor nylon gear cog.

CAMBELT CHANGED May-2021 @ 98k by Alfa/Fiat specialist MDZ Italtec

Massive wallet of service history, 3x keys, and some service stamps, other are independent garage and some parts installed by myself.

General condition in and out: Pulls like a train, it goes well but the body work needs TLC, that was the next job to do this year. Bonnet needs its dents removed (or replacement purchased), there are a number of other dings that would need attention and paint on the bonnet, roof and boot need attention. I'd budgeted for a full respray. Also de-junked the internal dashboard but could do with a re-spray too, but doesn’t look too bad

Modifications:
Lowered on very hard suspension - what looks like eibach (no receipt but you can see the yellow springs and the lower ride is low)
De-cat exhaust system (CAT included for MOT).
Performance Manifold & exhaust which sounds lovely.
FC Performance ECU
Silicone coolant hose kit (CHD).
LED bulb kit for dipped beam.
New BlueTooth headunit

Came to me as a nun-runner in the start of lockdown *1. Needed some work to get it going, summary of what I've done from my project thread:

New Battery (smaller LIGHTER gel type fitted)
New AIR/OIL/Fuel Filter
New Shell Helix ULTRA Oil
New Thermostat
New OSRAM Nightbreaker Main Beam
New AuxBit LED Dipped Bulbs
New Throttle Body Sensor
New Idle Control Value
New Spark Plugs
Polished Lights (failed MOT initially on these)
Replaced Fuel Injectors (with Flow Tested 2nd Hand Units)
New Radiator Cap (old one leaked)
New Exhaust Rubber
Replaced Turbo Intake Pipe (2nd hand unit)
Conditioned the Leather Seats

The reason I'm having to sell is I've underestimated how much work my newest family member is and I don’t have the time to put into this now and I don’t have access to dry storage. it's a really nice car which I'll miss when gone so I'm hoping this will be bought by someone who can continue to love it like I have.

Terms of Sale = caveat emptor
