As I've just bought a 600Ti the 220 has to go....

1999 T plate, 105BHp Intercooled engine, Electric Front Windows, ZR Wingmirrors, 'Lexus Lights' (I still have the original clusters for the car & they will go with it), 125k Miles, New Clutch & Exhaust @ 107k, Rover BRM Alloys (16's) with new tyres (<2000 miles on them all). 1/2 Leather ZR Seats (I also have the door cards & internal bits needed to do them as well, just haven't had the time to do it), ZR Carbon dash inserts (the heater surround & passenger flash - see pics).

Only Group 7 insurance & cheap to run, I was in Uni for the last 2 years so the 25K i've put on it has been virtually all motorway. Oil changed every 6000 & all reciepts.
Looking for arround £1550, however would probably do something for you lovely people! Any questions email me at [email protected] or I can be contacted on 07773394177.

Forgot to mention has Tax & MOT till March, cant see any reason why it would fail - had cv boots & Handbreak cable done for the last one, & new Disks & pads at easter.

ooh nice car mate. Why does insurance on diesels seem to be sooo much more expensive than petrols for me... :sad2:

Have you tried confused.com ? You need to remember the Dervs are quite fast (more than a 1.4 petrol) & the insurance is a little steeper because of this, I'm 22 & paid £320 fc last time I renewed (the Ti is costing £650!) besides you get it all back in the improved mpg!

Thats odd, however you are quite young (same age as my brother & he pays >£1000 on some fiat 1.1 pos!). Mine's 'quite' manageable now with 5yrs NCB (they still wont let me protect it though!), it suddenly got much cheaper @ 21 with 4yrs no claims.

Cos there's a booming market in 2nd hand stolen wheezil motors bought by unscrupulous cabbies. The difference bottoms out as you get older.

The 200 looks great BTW, and if I hadn't just bought the pug i'd be sorely tempted at that price.

Mmm, as anybody who's ever been to cardiff knows there are many dodgy cabbies with 600SDi's, annoyingly the mates I went to see in Cardiff last weekend in the Ti dont know the difference between an SDi & Ti, so I have been on the recieving end of taxi jokes...until they came for a ride in the Ti.

Well I need shot of it quickly (My Ti, Dad's ZTT, Mum's TF, Brother's Fiat something & the 200 are making life at home somewhat tricky at the moment!) so better find a buyer!

What sort of offers are you willing to accept?
Cheers
