As above.

MoT failure for sill corrosion both sides and NSR brake pipe. Advisories for front chassis rails.

Good bits:
Xenons with washers, 4 winter tyres with decent tread on reasonable CD wheels, recent new wishbones with front poly bushes and arb bushes, drop links, track Rods, new Sachs shocks all round with new fittings and top mounts and bearings, new springs all round, Pedders rear subframe donuts. Fully serviced when I bought it, including breather clean and camcover gasket, thermostat, hbv and coolant change.

Suspension has done about 2,500 miles.

Drives really well.

Bad bits:
Scrubs up OK, but lots of car park drinks. Rear arches starting to go, along with lower doors. Could benefit from a cam and crank sensor, but still perfectly usable, (neither stops the manual 2.2s from being driven). Sills can either be patched or replaced... Couple of small holes towards the front and both rear ends.

If repaired and not abused, then realistically it should have another couple of years in it.

Obviously being sold as spares or repairs, and open to sensible offers, but be mindful of the value of the suspension parts...

Ideally looking for 350 ono.

Can scrap it for 125... Which seems churlish.

It would be worth pulling the good bits off before scrapping.  :y

Exaectly. Or sell them on, probably for more than he gets from the scrappy for the rest of the car.

If you do decide to scrap it I could be interested in the front bumper if it's in reasonably good condition.
