1999 3L Manual Mini-Facelift MV6

Spares or repairs, failed its MOT back in October with holed sills near the rear jacking point. 

1999 3.0L MV6 manual saloon, Polar Sea Blue pearlescent, NO MOT, 176,717 miles (engine & g.box only done 98k)

Engine & Gearbox:
   Cam belt done July 2018, 175,250 miles
   Engine replaced in 2013 at 168,600 miles with engine & manual gearbox from my 3.0L V6 Elite which had just over 89k on the clock
   Rear crank seal, crank sensor, MAF, thermostat, water pump, oil pressure switch, coolant temperature sensor, breather box, all replaced with genuine GM parts during engine change
   New radiator
   Head gaskets done April 2015 at 173k, new cam seals, valve stem seals, etc.
   Heads ported by Bill Blydenstein in 1999
   One piece 12kg flywheel
   3.2 exhaust manifolds, heads matched to manifolds
   EGR, SAI and air-con all removed entirely, EGR cheater fitted to stop EML coming on
   Jetex full stainless steel cat-back system
   Red Dot Racing ECU chip with 7,200rpm rev limit
   Short-shift gear lever
   Estimated power around 240bhp, pulls in enough air to put the MAF above it's working range (although MAF input not used in WOT maps so this does not cause a problem)

Suspension, Steering & Brakes
   Bilstein shocks & Eibach -35mm springs (lower than MV6 spec)
   Powerflex front ARB bushes, poly rear cross-member donuts
   Steering arms, drop links, front wishbones, rear track arms all replaced with GM parts late 2010 at 155k
   Hunter 4 wheel aligned
   New GM OEM front disks and pads (not the later aftermarket spec junk)
   Rear brakes converted to vented disks Oct 2014 (new Mintex disks & GM pads & TRW handbrake shoes)
   New SKF steering idler

Exterior:
   Irmscher front bumper (and standard Irmscher boot lip spoiler)
   De-chromed and de-badged, Opel badges front and rear are the only markings
   New windscreen
   Sale will include a full set of painted facelift side trims (I didn't get round to fitting these)

Interior:
   Light grey Elite leather interior, all 4 seats heated and working, full electric adjustment on front seats
   MV6 carbon effect console, gear surround and door card trims
   Rear electric sun blind
   Bose sound system

Have done so much to this car that I have probably left lots out.

Looking for 750

Please pm for pictures while I try to find a free hosting site so I can post them here.

If you Elite an MV6, does that make it an MVee-leet?

Those with long memories may remember this was advertised previously before I decided to hold onto it.

Sounds like a nice example. Shame to get rid of it for the want of a bit of welding or a pair of sills, if that's all it needs.

Plastic Welsh hatchbacks are awesome.
I would like to know what will happen this year, but I don't have 20 20 vision.

Sadly I don't have the time and the car no longer suits my needs.  The funds will go towards something more suitable for teaching the kids in - modified 3L V6 not exactly compatible with new driver insurance premiums :D
