I was going to buy it but I really don't like leather, if it had been written off it must be a repair, hence it was a wise move post on here to hear peoples opinions  :y

I remember seeing that one it did sound very dodgy at the time, if you can get to the bottom of what really went on might be worth a look, otherwise leave it alone.

It says 183,000 Km, but MOT says 183,000 miles. It had welding done under the boot floor in 2016.

Nearside Windscreen wiper does not clear the windscreen effectively (8.2.2)
Offside Windscreen wiper does not clear the windscreen effectively (8.2.2)
Nearside Front position lamp(s) has less than 50% of the light sources illuminating (1.1.A.3b)
Offside Front position lamp(s) has less than 50% of the light sources illuminating (1.1.A.3b)
Nearside Rear Tyre has ply or cords exposed (4.1.D.1b)
Body or chassis has excessive corrosion, seriously affecting its strength within 30cm of the body mountings BOOT FLOOR UNDER SPARE WHEEL. (6.1.B.2)

That's not the only MOT with tyres down to the ply, either.

I, personally, wouldn't touch it.

I wonder if it was the one that Swordfish was trying to palm off to some schmuck a little while ago...

If so, then it's probably best avoided :-X

Proof would be if the Irmscher kit is genuine or fibreglass...

a) it's Facebook... it wouldn't be the first car in history to be advertised for a mate/wife/aunty/bloke from the pub/dead cat*
b) seller could be said schmuck...

Looking at the complete history,it looks like it hasn't been looked after properly....hence it being a potential shed/money pit! Expect the Irish boys will be spiriting it away to the Emerald Isle for a bit of drifting action.....probably fall apart after the first half hour ::) :)
