Bought as spares/ repair, lots of work done:

- Power steering pump
- New track rods, drop links and 4 wheel alignment.
- New plugs and 3 new (Bosch) rear coils.
- New boost control valve
,- New brake booster vacuum pipework
- New battery
- New air filter, cabin filter (box waterproofed) and wiper blades.
- New (80k) throttle body
- Ice cold aircon
- New clock spring

- Recent cam sensor
- Alloys recently refurbished, but not perfect.
- Lowered
- Lanoguarded underneath last summer. (Not a perfect job, but good to have done).
- Headlights cleaned and polished.

Manual, Hirsched (275bhp I believe), 125k with lots of service history. Long MOT. Two working keys. Low tax 55 plate.

Spec includes:
- Xenons
-, Auto dimming rear mirror
- Cruise control
- All electrics
- Cream leather

Car has an intermittent issue where sometimes it only demands half boost. This can often be fixed by turning off and restarting. The issue has improved since replacing all plugs and 3 coil packs, so it may be as simple as another coil pack.

I don't have Tech 2, but note that when the car is not requesting full boost, throttle position on Torque Pro shows as not opening wide enough. I had the chance of a cheap known good throttle body so replaced it, but no change, (however I know throttle body needs to be Tech 2'd to the car). I think worst case scenario would be an ECU issue, but this seems doubtful as car is not throwing any errors.

Bodywork wise, there are 3 clear coat scratches on different panels, but little else to note, barely any car park dings. There is a small spot of rust bubbling on the boot lid, but no sign of it coming through. Very small amount of rust on the edge of a front arch where paint is missing, but this could be easily sorted. Cills completely solid etc and recently lanoguarded underneath. Interior is good, very little wear on driver seat.

Good tread all round with Michelin Pilot Sports up front. Bridgestone on the back I think. Has the big brakes I believe, if I'm being picky I think it would benefit from a caliper refurb, but it does stop ok.

Currently taxed and insured so can take you out in it. 'Low' tax model (£400ish).

£2200 as I've spent a lot on it, but open to sensible offers. Reluctant sale, but I don't have the time to get it finished.
